March 25, 2022: “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”
Original release date: May 7, 2021, November 5, 2021
The director of the first “Doctor Strange,” Scott Derrickson, was originally set to return to deliver “the first scary MCU film.” In January 2020, Derrickson and Marvel Studios surprisingly parted ways “due to creative differences.“
Feige described the sequel as a “thrilling, scary, mind-bending adventure” and confirmed Sam Raimi (“Spider-Man”) is taking over the film. He has full support from Derrickson.
Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, and Chiwetel Ejiofor will reprise their roles as Dr. Stephen Strange, Dr. Christine Palmer, and Baron Mordo.
Xochitl Gomez will play comic character America Chavez (who becomes Miss America). Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) will be in the sequel, too. The events of her Disney+ series, “WandaVision,” will directly tie in to “Doctor Strange 2.”
