Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is Going to Be “Incredibly Visually Thrilling”. As the Doctor Strange sequel moves into post-production we have heard over and over again that the upcoming film will be the “first horror movie” in the MCU. Needless to say, this has Marvel fans posting many theories, but the only confirmed news from the cast and crew is the involvement of other lead Marvel characters such as Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and Tom Holland’s Peter Parker/Spider-Man.
Loki showrunner Michael Waldron shared his own excitement for the Doctor Strange sequel with Variety, telling them: “He’s [Doctor Strange] Indiana Jones in a cloak to me. He’s a hero who can take a punch. That’s what made those Harrison Ford heroes so great. Those guys get their asses kicked,” he elaborated, “Look at Stephen Strange in the first movie. He’s really getting beat up but he’s very capable and everything. I can tell you that it’s a ride…very Sam Raimi. The film is incredibly visually thrilling. John Mathieson, our D.P., who shot Gladiator and Logan—I think the look of it is going to be unlike anything you’ve seen in the MCU before.”
The new Marvel Studios film will star Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange) and Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch) with Benedict Wong (Wong), Rachel McAdams (Dr. Christine Palmer), and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Karl Mordo) set to return in their respective roles for the sequel. The cast is joined by newcomer Xochitl Gomez who will be playing America Chavez in her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut.
