At its Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel pulled the sheet off of a huge slate of MCU movies and TV shows. One of the most interesting in the list is the announcement of a Doctor Strange sequel. In two years, we’ll be watching Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness when it hits theaters on May 7, 2021.
The movie will feature Benedict Cumberbatch reprising his role as Steven Strange, of course, but that’s not all. Scarlet Witch will play a significant role in the film, with Elizabeth Olsen continuing to play the character, and Kevin Feige says the events of the WandaVision show from Disney+ will lead up to the movie.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is being framed, as the name suggests, as a horror film. But with the word multi-verse in the title, we can’t help but wonder if Doc won’t kick the doors open for mutants to enter the MCU.
A horror movie that ties into WandaVision and could open up the Marvel multiverse? Count us in.
