Doctor Strange 2 Will Begin Filming Very Soon, Benedict Cumberbatch Says

The long-awaited sequel is finally slated to begin filming soon.


Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Marvel shut down its productions, only just recently starting back up again with Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings in Australia. It appears that Marvel will begin shooting another film soon, with Benedict Cumberbatch saying in a recent interview that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will begin shooting in "late October or early November."

Cumberbatch shared this detail in an interview with WatchTime, as translated by Fandom. The actor did not provide any further information about the film, however.

Marvel has pushed back release dates for many of the upcoming Phase 4 films, and this included the new Doctor Strange film, which is now scheduled for March 2022.

The first Doctor Strange movie was released in 2016 and it made more than $677 million worldwide at the box office. Scott Derrickson directed the first film, and he was lined up to return for the sequel, but he left the project due to "creative differences" with Marvel.

Spider-Man director Sam Raimi is now set to direct Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
