Originally, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness going to be directed by the original’s Scott Derrickson, but it will now be directed by Sam Raimi.

Deadline also says that the production on this new MCU film will begin only after Cumberbatch gets done with filming on the upcoming Spider-Man movie, which reportedly, is going to see the return of Alfred Molina as Doctor Otto Octavius, Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man, Kirsten Dunst as Mary Jane Watson, and Tobey Maguire as Spider-Man.
“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” is going to be released in theatres on March 25, 2022.
Rachel McAdams has settled a deal to reprise her part as Christine Palmer in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” according to the sources. Benedict Cumberbatch will come back as the sorcerer supreme in the forthcoming sequel, and “Spider-Man” director Sam Raimi is all set to direct.
Furthermore, Benedict Wong and Chiwetel Ejiofor are suspected to come back being sorcerers Wong and Karl Mordo, while Elizabeth Olsen is reprising her character as Wanda Maximoff, aka the Scarlet Witch. Olsen’s forthcoming Disney+ series “WandaVision” will premiere on the platform sometime in December.
Seeing the past of Marvel Studios productions playing cards near the vest, and Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness not yet filming, it cannot be said with any certainty at this time specifically what the movie will truly be about.
And certainly also not easing anything is the fact that the outline has gone through the aforementioned behind-the-scenes developments, which could indicate that the plot has wholly changed from during the movie was first declared.
At San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Scott Derrickson told the fans that Doctor Strange 2 would incline into the more horror side of the source element and be the very first horror MCU movie – though it’s not entirely clear if that is still valid.
Even before Derrickson dropped the project, Kevin Feige downplayed the concept that the film would come into the horror genre. This being stated, Sam Raimi is not only appreciated for his big blockbusters but also the Evil Dead trilogy and Drag Me to Hell.
On the very least one idea that we can be assured of is that Doctor Strange 2 is going to be the first Marvel Studios film to fully embrace the presence of the titular multiverse. In short, the idea is that reality as we understand it is only one of an infinite number – including those that happen to be about exactly the same as ours with only microscopic variations and others that are unfathomably distinctive. In the movie, Doctor Strange will likely find himself on a sort of universe-hopping adventure, though the full scope of that is presently unclear.
