Directed by Sam Raimi, the movie will see Benedict Cumberbatch reprise his role as Doctor Strange
There is news for Marvel fans from the set of the new Doctor Strange movie. Elizabeth Olsen has wrapped shooting for her part in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The WandaVision actress celebrated the wrap on social media with a behind-the-scenes image.
Hairstylist Karen Bartek, who has earlier worked in movies like Avengers: Infinity War, Endgame, and the series WandaVision, took to Instagram to share the BTS photo. The photo, which features Elizabeth Olsen in a celebratory mood, came with the caption, “Not ‘Strange ‘ Anymore !! Wrapped again”
In June this year, the actress had shared that filming on the sequel had wrapped, so it remains unknown at this point what prompted the reshoots. It does seem that director Sam Raimi needed to add some final touches to the highly-anticipated movie.
MCU movies rarely give away any information regarding their projects and there’s precious little that has been revealed about the Doctor Strange sequel. Very little is known about the movie, including who the villain in the movie will be, but going by the madness that his involvement in the Spider-Man movie unleashes, it would be interesting to see what he will be up against.
The movie marks director Raimi’s return to the Marvel world, after 2007's Spider-Man 3. In an earlier interview with Vanity Fair, Olsen had revealed that Doctor Strange 2 will be a scary movie. “It's a very scary movie. It's like old Sam Raimi. He's trying to create the scariest Marvel movie," she was quoted as saying
Olsen’s Wanda is expected to play a prominent role in the movie, after the post-credit scenes of WandaVision, where Scarlet Witch is experimenting with the Book of the Damned/Dark Hold. The movie is expected to release in theatres on March 25, 2022.
