“”I’m very excited. Sam Raimi’s at the helm, so expect extraordinary things. And we’re in the middle of making it even better. We’ve got some reshoots coming up in November and December.”
Those are the words that Benedict Cumberbatch used to announce that the highly anticipated sequel of his Doctor Strange will be partially reshot until the end of this year so that it can be prepared for the release in May next year.
Cumberbatch promised that reshoots will make the movie even better. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was recently delayed from March to May 2022. Could it be that this reshooting is also a part of the reason that almost the whole Marvel calendar was moved?
Of course, reshooting isn’t something unusual in Hollywood, although sometimes it can be an alert that the making of the movie isn’t going well and that usually ends up in a disappointing final product. Considering that for some fans Doctor Strange 2 is the most expected Marvel movie, we certainly hope that isn’t the case. After all, Cumberbatch said that director Sam Raimi, who created the original Spider-Man trilogy starring Tobey Maguire, is overlooking everything so that puts our high hopes even higher.
Cumberbatch stars in the movie alongside Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, who are all reprising their respective MCU roles. Newcomer Xochitl Gomez will star as America Chavez.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to be released on May 6, 2022.
