Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness is an American superhero film from 2022, where Strange must meet a mysterious new opponent. The film is the sequel to Doctor Strange (2016) and the 28th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU).
Directed by Sam Raimi based on a screenplay written by Michael Waldron, based on the Marvel Comics character.
Marvel Studios production features Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange alongside Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Michael Stuhlbarg and Rachel McAdams.
Sam Raimi, whose last horror director excursion was on Ash vs. Evil Dead series in 2015 (he has produced films such as Crawl since) took over the directorship of Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness from Scott Derrickson in 2020, after the latter cited creative differences.
Doctor Strange (2016), told the origin story of the superhero and somewhat arrogant doctor who is drawn to the world of mysterious art after an unfortunate accident.
After searching the world to find a way to heal himself, he finally discovers himself under the supervision of The Ancient One, who trains him in the mysterious art. After becoming Sorcerer Supreme, he must fight against dark forces from our world and other kingdoms.
The new film takes place a few months after the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021). Doctor Stephen Strange travels with the help of both old and new mysterious allies into the multiverse to meet a mysterious new opponent …
Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness is scheduled to hold its world premiere on May 2, 2022 and will be released in the US on May 6, 2022 in RealD 3D, IMAX, Dolby Cinema and ScreenX.
In April 2022, it was revealed that the film would not be released in Saudi Arabia due to the inclusion of America Chavez, a gay character. The Muslim countries of Kuwait, Qatar and Egypt followed suit and canceled the release of the film.
Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of violence and action, scary images and some language.
Filming began in November 2020 in London, England, but was put on hold in January 2021 due to the world health crisis. Production resumed in March 2021 and ended in mid-April in Somerset. Additional post-production footage also took place in Surrey and further footage in Los Angeles, according to The Hollywood Reporter
The website said: “Insiders say Cumberbatch and the company undertake six weeks of shooting, if not more, and work six days a week. Sam Raimi remains as mate, and Loki Chief Writer Michael Waldron is still involved in writing the new material. It is unclear which actors besides Cumberbatch are involved.
