Doctor Strange actor Benedict Cumberbatch is not entirely sure that Doctor Strange is his “movie” in Multiverse of Madness.
Set to become the title of the next Doctor Strange sequel in 2016, Cumberbatch recently appeared as a guest on an episode of Marc Maron’s WTF podcast. The two discussed the actor’s ongoing projects. Briefly, they debated the Multiverse of Madness, which is currently the subject of resumes until the end of 2021. After reviewing Cumberbatch’s story in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Marvel actor asked, “So [Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness] is your movie?” Cumberbatch first replied “Yes” before adding: “Well … yes, that’s part of the problem.
“Looks like I have an arcade there? Does it work?” said Cumberbatch before returning to the mood. “No, I have some amazing things to do. He’s very busy. It’s called the multiverse of madness, and it’s crazy.”
Although the story of The Multiverse of Madness is mainly mysterious, the film’s published summary follows the events of Avengers: Endgame and describes how an “old friend of an enemy” stacks Strange’s hunt for the dead, which causes him to unleash a great evil in multiculturalism. In addition to the sequel to the first Doctor Strange movie, The Multiverse of Madness is expected to follow the multifaceted stories set in upcoming Disney + WandaVision and Loki shows and Spider-Man No Way Home.
Along with Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange, many MCU characters are expected to appear in Multiverse of Madness. Recurring characters on Doctor Strange include Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer, and Benedict Wong as Wong. Elizabeth Olson’s Wanda Maximoff will also appear in the sequel after being transformed into Scarlet Witch. Xochitl Gomez will make his MCU debut as America Chavez, Marvel Comics’ favorite multiplayer superhero.
Earlier this fall, Marvel announced that Doctor Strange would be revived by the end of 2021. While a well-known source made the awakening “significant,” other sources downgraded its size, including Cumberbatch. When the star covered the Multiverse of Madness coverage for logistical issues and delays, in part due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the star said: “We are working hard to plan the path to its full potential. Better, but also things that are not were possible that day “.
Sam Raimi will direct doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Slave Madness on May 6, 2022. Before releasing this film, Doctor Strange will appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which will be released on December 17.
