'Doctor Strange 2': Trailer, Release Date, Cast, Filming Details & Everything We Know So Far

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is expanding to new frontiers with Phase 4 and it’s all coming together in Doctor Strange 2, officially titled Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

The sequel movie is going to be taking plot lines from Loki, WandaVision, and Spider-Man: No Way Home to build a story that has the potential to be more massive than even Avengers: Endgame.

Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and directed by the legendary Sam Raimi, Doctor Strange 2 is easily the most highly-anticipated MCU movie of Phase 4. The film’s script has been written by Jade Bartlett and Loki writer Michael Waldron.

There have been two trailers released so far for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

The first teaser was released on December 22, 2021, revealing the return of Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch and the evil Doctor Strange from What If...?

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently scheduled to premiere in the United States on May 6, 2022. The sequel was originally set for release on May 7, 2021.

Besides Benedict Cumberbatch, Doctor Strange 2 will also see the return of Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, reprising their roles from 2016’s Doctor Strange.

It looks like Multiverse of Madness is going to have a massive cast of characters, comparable to an Avengers movie.

Benedict Wong will play Strange’s trusted friend Wong. Wong will also be having an appearance in Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, as revealed in the movie’s trailer.

Doctor Strange 2 began principal photography in November 2020 in London. Filming was scheduled to begin in May 2020 but it was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
