As expected, it looks like Doctor Strange will be returning from the dead after all. While being interviewed by our friends at Cinemablend, the president of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige, gave us confirmation that the Sorcerer Supreme will be getting a sequel to his 2016 film.
Feige said the following:
“Sometimes it’s where do those characters pop up? [Doctor] Strange, you know, whenever we do another Strange one, which we will do, it will be a number of years from the first Strange, and yet he’s a very big part of [Avengers:] Infinity War. So it is just a good problem to have when you have too many beloved characters that people want to see more of, whilst keeping to our core belief that we need to keep exploring nuance and keep doing different types of things.”
Currently, there is no official release date for the film, but it’s nice to have confirmation that the project is on its way. Hopefully, we’ll get more updates soon.
Directed by Scott Derrickson, Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt, Scott Adkins, Mads Mikkelsen, and Tilda Swinton.
Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilising a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Doctor Strange is currently on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital. Avengers: Infinity War is still in theaters.
