After the first visual marvel that was Marvel Studios Doctor Strange and the subsequent success of Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange in Avengers Infinity War, it was only a matter of time til we heard that the master of the mystic arts would be getting a solo sequel film. Now we have that news and best of all the original director , Scott Derrickson would be returning after finalizing a deal.
A writer for the project is currently being sought, but should everything flow according to plan production is expected to get underway by spring of 2020, with an eye on a May 2021 release.
Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise the role of The Sorcerer Supreme, and he’ll be joined by Benedict Wong as fellow wizard, Wong. Rachael McAdams is also “likely” to return as Strange’s love interest, It is not known yet if Chiwetel Ejiofor who became the villainous Baron Mordo would return, however it would only make sense.
