This theory does line up with recent comments from Doctor Strange and Avengers: Endgame Actor, Benedict Wong (Wong).
While appearing at Denver Pop Culture Con, Wong responded to a question about the long awaited sequel to Doctor Strange and hinted that filming could begin “some time next year.”
“I know they’ve now got a writer on board who I met at the Endgame premiere.” Wong explained. “So I think that may be happening some time next year.”
Since the premiere of Doctor Strange in 2016, Marvel has not hesitated to say that the film will get a proper sequel, but that it would take a little more time since the set up for Infinity War and Endgame were the primary focuses of the Studio at the time.
“Sometimes, it’s where do those characters pop up?” Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige said of Doctor Strange in an interview last year. “[Doctor] Strange, you know, whenever we do another Strange [movie], which we will do, it will be a number of years from the first Strange, and yet he’s a very big part of Infinity War. So it is just a good problem to have when you have too many beloved characters that people want to see more of, whilst keeping to our core belief that we need to keep exploring nuance and keep doing different types of things.”
If only we had control of the time stone to make it happen a little faster, but good things come to those who wait.
Since the announcement of a sequel, fans have been speculating on the potential storyline, with a heavy sense that Baron Mordo will appear again, this time as a multi-dimensional villain.
“For those of you who have ever read the comics, you know that Baron Mordo has a very particular arc, and that’s something we discussed with Chiwetel [Mordo] while working on the first movie,” C. Robert Cargill said in an interview with Movie Web. “And part of the reason Chiwetel wanted to play Mordo was because he has a definitive ending as a character and it’s such a fascinating ending. And I do know that whether we’re attached or not, that Marvel plans on working towards that ending and fully realizing Mordo as more than just a cardboard cutout villain, but actually taking him to kind of Loki levels of awesomeness. That’s the goal with him.”
Cargill also went on in that interview to say the character, Nightmare, will be the primary villain in ‘Doctor Strange 2.‘
“Marvel movies work in threes. They also work outside of their threes. Some of the better Marvel films have more than one villain in them,” Cargill said to Movie Web. “Me and Scott have not laid the groundwork for it, but what I can say is that I have a feeling that whatever Nightmare is involved with, Baron Mordo, being somebody who considers himself the defender of natural law will have something to do with it.”
We are stoked to see Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Benedict Wong (Wong), and Chitwetel Ejiofor (Mordo) return to the big screen in what is sure to be a spectacular combination of breath-taking imagery and compelling storytelling from Marvel Studios.
