During the 2019 San Diego comic con, we got to learn more about the future of the MCU. Most of the series and movies are shrouded in secrecy.  However, we go to learn a little more about the next Doctor Strange movie titled “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.”

We don’t know the whole storyline for the movie yet. But what we do know is Doctor Strange will be dealing with multi-dimensional beings. Director Scott Derrickson who directed the first movie alongside a couple of horror movies like “The exorcism of Emily Rose” and “Deliver us from evil” expressed his interest in the character to the audience at comic con”… he doesn’t fight villains from this earth but from the multiverse… from other dimensions. So you get into all kinds of psychedelic weirdness which this movie is going to.”  he continues”… I don’t want to do another sequel to do a sequel… it has to go into the territory that drew me into Doctor Strange comics in the first place… the gothic and horror… were going to make the first scary MCU film.”


Although the movie is going to be horror based, it’s still going to be pg-13 so the young ones can still watch it. Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his role in the film. This time he gets to face villains which are beyond his knowledge. ” Doctor Strange will be facing unexpected things. I think he’ll be in the position of the audience. Not knowing what’s coming at him.” Cumberbatch said at comic con. the main villain in this movie is expected to be “Nightmare” which is a powerful advisory for Steven Strange in the comic books. He has the ability to harness people fears and dreams almost like Pennywise from the Steven King books “IT.”

Elizabeth Olsen who plays Scarlett Witch is said to join the cast. Her role directly ties in the movie through her Disney+ series Wandvision. It’s unclear whether Doctor Strange’s main villain Baron Mordo played by Chiwetel Ejiofor will return to face off against him in the sequel. “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” is set to be released in theatres on May 7th 2021.

What’s next for Marvel in Phase 4 in the next couple of years?
