Actress Elizabeth Olsen is recognized as Wanda Maximoff in the MCU. According to her, Doctor Strange 2 will be the scariest film in the Marvel Universe. Fans are enthralled by Olsen’s remark and are eager to see what spooky twist Marvel has in store for them.
Elizabeth Olsen’s statement on Doctor Strange 2:
Elizabeth Olsen spoke about working with Sam Raimi as well as what Marvel Studios is aiming for with the upcoming movie in an interview with the New York Film Academy:
“It was really hard. Sam Raimi is lovely, and I got to learn a lot from him. It was odd going from WandaVision and bringing this character to a different film that felt more based in the Marvel films. I felt like I was putting on old shoes…It’s a very scary movie. It’s old Sam Raimi. They’re trying to create the scariest Marvel movie. So there’s that!”
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was hyped as a horror movie when Kevin Feige introduced it at San Diego Comic-Con two years ago. That essence hasn’t changed, despite Sam Raimi stepping over filmmaking roles replacing Scott Derrickson. The Doctor Strange sequel has never been more anticipated, especially after the Loki ending hinted at the multiverse even further.
What fans can expect from Doctor Strange 2:
Doctor Strange was last seen in “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” where he experimented with a spell that caused havoc throughout the multiverse. He’ll be dealing with the aftermath of his own deeds in the upcoming “Doctor Strange” sequel.
The film will transport audiences to several universes, as the title suggests. These various worlds may also potentially attract a slew of new characters. The film’s direction, according to Benedict Cumberbatch, is “unfathomably exciting.” “It’s Marvel’s most fantastic new phase,” he remarked. Wong also noted that this is new uncharted territory. “I believe spectators will be surprised,” he said.
Paul Bettany appeared on The Late Show with Claire Foy, who co-starred with Bettany in the recently released period piece A Very British Scandal. When Stephen Colbert questioned Paul Bettany if he’d feature in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in the conversation, the actor both, dodged and teased the idea of Vision starring in Doctor Strange 2:
“This is a really great question. And, again, I said I was going to be entirely honest with you. You’re asking if… ‘Am I in Doctor Strange?’… Yes, no, yes, no, yes, no. I don’t know. Am I? What do you think?… I can neither confirm nor deny rumors that I am in said and aforementioned Doctor Strange.”
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to release on May 6, 2022.
