Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness finally seems to be on track. Following the release of Doctor Strange in 2016, the highly anticipated sequel starring Benedict Cumberbatch is finally coming together. While there has been a lot of secrecy surrounding the upcoming film including the official plot, cast, and more, fans finally got the first look at what’s to come in Spider-Man: No Way From Home.
The movie’s post-credits scene doubles as a short teaser trailer for Doctor Strange 2. Following the events of both Loki season 1 and Spider-Man: No Way Home where one of Doctor Strange’s spells goes wrong and accidentally breaks open the multiverse, fans see Strange join forces with Wanda as they attempt to learn more about the multiverse. However, still, there’s time left for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness release. Till then here are a few details that we know so far.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Cast
Benedict Cumberbatch is set to reprise his role as Stephen Strange alongside Benedict Wong as Wong, Rachel McAdams as Dr. Christine Palmer, and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda. The recent teaser trailer also teases the return of Chiwetel Ejiofor aka Strange’s mentor-turned-enemy Karl Mordo as well as the introduction of Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez.
As fans have seen how closely the plot intersects with Loki season 1, there have been rumors that Tom Hiddleston aka Loki, Owen Wilson as Mobius M. Mobius, and Sophia di Martino as Sylvie could also make appearances in the sequel, although Marvel hasn’t confirmed anything yet. As Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness underwent ‘significant’ reshoots in November, The Hollywood Reporter teased that film is having “more fun with the multiverse” by adding in a few more cameos like those featured in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
