Following the huge success of SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME, Marvel is back with the movie that fans have been waiting for. The film is the sequel to the upcoming DOCTOR STRANGE.
Continuing the concept of the multiverse, DOCTOR STRANGE 2 will welcome the new hero America Chavez, as well as several other Marvel characters such as Scarlet Witch. Coupled with the evil Doctor Strange who appears in the last moments of the trailer, DR.STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS will be a different film than before.

DOCTOR STRANGE 2 is probably one of the MCU’s most ambitious projects. Production of the film DOCTOR STRANGE 2 began at the end of 2020, despite some delays due to the pandemic, filming was completed in April. But DOCTOR STRANGE 2 then made headlines when it started reshoots late last year. The reshoots finished earlier this month, but now Raimi still isn’t sure they’re done.
1. Sam Raimi’s Comments
Quoted from Variety, Raimi as the director explained why he couldn’t say honestly whether DOCTOR STRANGE 2 was finished or not. Raimi said testing had just begun, and it would let him know if there was more work to be done. He only had a few months left before the film was released in theaters.

Answering the question whether DOCTOR STRANGE 2 is over, Raimi said, “I wish I knew the answer to that question. I thought we were done, but we just cut everything. We’ve just started testing the images and we’ll see if there’s anything to grab. If something isn’t clear or some other improvement I can make in this short amount of time, I’ll do it. One thing I know about the Marvel team is that they won’t stop. They will keep fighting until this film is as perfect as it can be.”
2. What are the consequences
When a film requires extensive reshoots or is still being tweaked leading up to its release, the general impression is that the film is in creative trouble. The same could be said for SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME, which reportedly had changes during filming that sometimes involved script changes. And now the film is dubbed by many as the best SPIDER-MAN film. Just because DOCTOR STRANGE 2 has done a big reshoot and may need more, doesn’t mean the results will be bad.

This shows how vast and complex MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS is. Fans hope this film will continue what was left in the WandaVision and Loki series. DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS is currently scheduled to hit theaters on May 6.
