DISCOVER ALL THE INFOS CONCERNING DOCTOR STRANGE 2 IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS! RELEASE DATE AND MORE.
After missing the opportunity to portray Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness as a horror film in its own right, Marvel must finally embrace the beloved genre. Before Phase 4 of the MCU was set in stone, it was hoped that the highly anticipated sequel to Doctor Strange would lean into horror, which the franchise has yet to do.
With two dozen films developed and a slew of movies and TV shows to come, Marvel should have opened a truly spooky chapter in its cinematic universe. Although not part of the MCU, Marvel has quietly dabbled in recent horror-centric stories. The New Mutants was created by 20th Century Fox as a superhero film based on the Marvel Comics team of the same name.
Although Marvel Entertainment was involved in the chilling portrayal of Josh Boone, various setbacks and studio delays derailed the film’s potential. After years of uncertainty, The New Mutants emerged in the midst of a pandemic, burying the project. So what will Doctor Strange 2 look like and when will it be released? We tell you everything!
WHAT RELEASE DATE FOR DOCTOR STRANGE 2?

WHAT CAN WE EXPECT FROM DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS?
From the synopsis: After the events of Avengers: Endgame, Dr. Stephen Strange’s investigation into the Time Stone continues. But an old friend turned foe seeks to destroy all wizards on Earth, disrupting Strange’s plan and causing him to unleash unspeakable evil as well. “
This “old friend turned adversary” is most likely Mordo, who pursues his wicked schemes, which were briefly glimpsed in one of the first film’s post-credits sequences.
Before Derrickson’s departure, and due to Marvel’s silence that followed, fans assumed that the director and his original co-writer C. Robert Cargill was rumored to have had a significant effect on the sequel’s script, however that is no longer the case. Neither he nor Derrickson had the opportunity to work on the script.
WHO WILL BE AT THE CASTING?
Casting side, Benedict Cumberbatch will be back in the role of Stephen Strange, just like Benedict Wong in that of Wong. We’ll also see more of Chiwetel Ejiofor’s irresistible Mordo.
Elizabeth Olsen, the aka Scarlet Witch, will also join Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, confirming reports that the Vision and Scarlet Witch-centric Disney + WandaVision series will play a pivotal role in setting up Doctor Strange 2.
