Doctor Strange 2 Brings Back First Movie's Director, Scott Derrickson
Phase 4 is slowly coming together.
Doctor Strange director and co-writer Scott Derrickson is returning to head the movie's sequel. There are no concrete details for Doctor Strange 2 yet, except that the film will occur after 2019's Avengers: Endgame during Phase Four of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, there's still a search for a writer for Doctor Strange 2's script. However, both Benedict Cumberbatch and Benedict Wong, who play Steven Strange and Wong respectfully, will be returning in the sequel. Rachel McAdams, who portrays Christine Palmer, is theorized to be in the sequel as well. The script for Doctor Strange 2 is currently scheduled to be finished by the end of 2019, with production on the film starting in Spring 2020 and the movie releasing in May 2021. Marvel has yet to confirm these details.
Both Peter Parker and Steven Strange met their end in the final moments of 2018's Avengers: Infinity War, yet the confirmation of Spider-Man: Far From Home and Doctor Strange 2 assures that both heroes will return to life in some way during the events of Endgame. Whether or not that means the same for everyone who disappeared as a result of Thanos' snap remains to be seen.

The MCU concludes Phase Three in 2019 with Captain Marvel on March 8 and Avengers: Endgame on April 26. 2018 saw the rise of King T'Challa as the new Black Panther, as well as Scott Lang once again donning the Ant-Man suit and partnering with Hope van Dyne, aka Wasp. However, Thanos' quest to eradicate half of life in the universe was realized in Avengers: Infinity War, which saw half of the Avengers, most of the Guardians of the Galaxy, and many other heroes dissolve into ash. Prior to Nick Fury's disappearance, he reached out to Carol Danvers, aka Captain Marvel and Earth's mightiest superhero. Hopefully her return to her home planet provides the strength the remaining heroes need to fight back against Thanos in Endgame.
