Doctor Strange 2: Benedict Cumberbatch talks about MCU resumes

Not even the multiverse, with its endless possibilities, is immune to the plague of Hollywood resumes. Several weeks ago, The Hollywood Reporter brought news that Marvel Studios was kicking off six weeks of extra recording time Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness. There were mixed reports on what this entailed about the film’s introductory clip (directed by Spider Man veterinarian Sam Raimi), but Benedict Cumberbatch is here to allay some of this fear.

Chatting with empire for the magazine’s issue of the end of 2021, the Sorcerer Supreme himself explained the true reason behind all the new footage: going back and doing things that were not possible during headline photography due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We’re in the middle of resumes and we’m working incredibly hard to make a schedule work to realize the full potential of the film – pieces we want to do better, but also pieces that were just impossible to make on the day because logistics , COVID, etc., “he said. “We were so late in production, because of it. Luckily not during production too much. Even though everything is just a little slower.”

SYFY WIRE overtook Raimi in September and tried to pry some Multiverse of madness secrets out of the acclaimed horror filmmaker. Unfortunately, he was bound by a powerful enchantment and could not give up any teasers about the project. “They will not let me say anything,” he said, referring to Marvel Studios’ strict no-spoilers policy. “I guess not … I’m sorry.”

However, he was able to give us his thoughts on seeing Alfred Molina’s return as Doctor Octopus in Spider-Man: No Way Home, whose history is directly related to Doctor Strange successor.

We could also bring an interview Multiverse of madness screenwriter Michael Waldron, who actually gave rise to the multiverse with his Loki TV series on Disney +.

“It’s an exciting ride,” teased Waldron of Strange’s big screen follow-up. “It’s an exciting trip with the heart that you would expect from a Sam Raimi superhero movie. Sam is a genius and the way he moves the camera is really exciting and he’s not afraid to take chances. I think it’s going to be a really cool experience for everyone. “

Another Marvel show at Disney + – WandaVision – is also set to take into account the plot of the sequel, in which Elizabeth Olsen repeats her role as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch. Whether she returns as a friend or foe remains to be seen.

Benedict Wong (Wong), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Mordo), Rachel McAdams (Christine Palmer) and Xochitl Gomez (America Chavez make her MCU debut) co-star.

Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness portals to cinemas throughout May 6, 2022.
