Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness direct Sam Raimi on striking a balance between cameos and story

Sam Raimi is returning to the Marvel scene after Spider-Man 3 and fans’ expectation for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in sky high. The director has now talked about how he found balance between cameos and the story in the movie. 

In a conversation with Rolling Stone, the director said that when the situation of someone meeting a cameo appears, often the best answer is to let the character experiencing the situation react truthfully. 

"Now, if there was a famous character from another universe that appeared in Multiverse of Madness, I'm not sure that our Doctor Strange would even know who he was; he might blow him off and not make it any big deal at all.” he said. 

The director further added that the most truthful response could often be the funniest for the audience and that it would be like someone meeting James Bond onscreen and not knowing who he is. 

With Doctor Strange 2 delving deeper into the multiverse, chances are the viewers will get to see a long list of cameos. Fan theories and rumours have listed cameos ranging from Charles Xavier to a version of Iron Man played by Tom Cruise. Promotional footage has also shown that Captain Carter, a multiversal variant of Peggy Carter who is given the Super Soldier serum will appear in the movie. 

With Benedict Cumberbatch returning as the lovable wizard with an attitude, the movie also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Rachel McAdams in important roles. 

The movie is set to hit theatres in the country on May 6 in English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada and Malayalam.
