Marvel Announces ‘Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness’ with Benedict Cumberbatch & Elizabeth Olsen

Marvel Studios

The Marvel announcements coming out of Comic-Con continue.

Kevin Feige has announced the second Doctor Strange movie is officially on the way. The mega producer unveiled the film’s title, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (that’s the official logo released above). Yes, despite Mysterio’s antics in Spider-Man: Far from Home, the multiverse is indeed real in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Interestingly, Elizabeth Olsen will be joining Benedict Cumberbatch in the film, reprising her MCU role as Scarlet Witch. The events in the upcoming Disney + series WandaVision, which will have Scarlett Witch and Paul Bettany’s Vision, will be directly connecting to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘ plot.

Director Scott Derrickson is back at the helm, and he says Doctor Strange’s next adventure will be “the first scary MCU film.” Derrickson, whose list of credits include horror films The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister, told the Comic-Con crowd that the film will tap into “the gothic, the horror and the horrific” that drew him to Doctor Strange comics in the first place.

No word as yet on what other cast members will be in the sequel. The first film also starred Rachel McAdams as Strange’s love interest Dr. Christine Palmer and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Modor, who we left on a villainous turn.
