The filming of Doctor Strange 2 is so extensive, it’s like a new movie


We have explained why Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness it will be one of the most exciting films of Phase 4 of the MCU. This is because “multiverse” in the sequel title represents a big theme of Phase 4 of the MCU. The Avengers are just starting to understand what the multiverse is. Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) is one of the heroes best equipped to face him. The cast of the film includes other exciting Avengers characters to help Strange along the way. But the film’s release date has been pushed back to May 2022. Filming was rumored to be in order. Fast forward to mid-November and a new report says Doctor Strange 2 the shoot is incredibly ambitious. One person enjoyed making a completely new movie.

We will explain why this is both good and bad. But before we delve into it, you should know that some Multiverse of madness spoilers may follow below.

The Doctor Strange 2 delay of the release date

We have seen the multiverse unleash in Loki Other What happens if …?. And Spider-Man: No Way Home will offer more multiverse developments, with Strange involved in the story. But the MCU’s Doctor Strange has yet to understand what the multiverse is about. He knows he poses a danger to this reality, as we saw in the There is no way to go home trailers. He will discover exactly what the multiverse has to offer in the Doctor Strange 2 Continuation.

When Marvel pushed the release date back to May, it delayed a number of other versions of the MCU. Kevin Feige downplayed the whole thing about a month ago, saying that production shifts and modifications they are forcing the program to be reshuffled. Didn’t mention a reshoot for Doctor Strange 2 at the time.

Soon after, a well-known Marvel insider said both There is no way to go home Other Multiverse of madness badly tested in the first screenings. There was no time to fix the new one Spiderman plot problems, but Marvel took time to correct the course Doctor Strange 2. The subsequent filming is said to be the reason Marvel had to delay the Doctor Strange 2 release date. Cumberbatch later confirmed the shoot.

It wasn’t all bad news, as the insider said Marvel wants to add a lot more MCU cameos in Doctor Strange 2. In the process, Marvel would also have resolved problems with the story.

Multiverse of madness the reshoot is more extensive than we thought

Special effects are another reason for the delays in the MCU movie’s release date, the leaker himself said. What if Doctor Strange 2 it needed fresh footage, so the visual effects work had to wait for Marvel to finish shooting the extra scenes.

It turns out the reshoot is larger than we thought. The Hollywood reporter I learned that the film needs “meaningful” shots. The cast and crew are to be on set until Christmas, shooting six days a week until the end of the year.

A source said of the Doctor Strange 2 he resumes that it is “like a whole other movie”. Others downplayed the severity. “Even in the middle of production, Marvel is planning you for more shots,” said one person. Another added that Marvel had “bigger reshoots on other MCU movies”.

People familiar with the matter explained that production needs to catch up with main photography which was delayed since initial UK shooting in early 2021. The pandemic has also slowed work on the film. But the sources downplayed concerns about the story.

Cumberbatch has again confirmed the shooting to Jimmy Kimmel earlier this week, without giving any plot or cast details. “Like everything with Marvel, it comes fresh, pretty much, most mornings,” the actor said. “It’s really exciting and the film is shaping up to be something special.”

This is when I will remind you of the great Doctor Strange 2 spoilers that may help you understand the footage. Attention, big spoilers follow below.

The great Doctor Strange 2 plot spoiler

If you followed Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness up close, you know everything about it leaked. We know who is the real bad guy?, what happens in the multiverse, who lives and dies, and what happens in the post-credits scenes. Or, we think we know. That’s because an insider recently offered a roundup of events, with a bigger loss filling in the blanks.

Spoilers aren’t always that accurate. We always told you. But Marvel delayed the Doctor Strange 2 release date around the time of the losses. And that’s when that Doctor Strange 2 The reshoot rumors have surfaced for the first time. This is not to say that Marvel is shooting the film again because the plot has leaked. But it could make significant corrections to the story because it was poorly tested in early screenings.

The villain and the problems of the cameo

If these leaks are accurate, then Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) will be the film’s main villain. And while he might see the errors of his ways by the end of Doctor Strange 2, rumors say it will be incredibly dangerous throughout the film. He will stop at nothing to find his children from a different universe and will continue to kill follies. He’ll even kill the Avengers and X-Men in the process, according to rumors.

It all sounds great considering where we left Wanda. After all the suffering in her life, she is still damaged. And at the same time it is becoming incredibly powerful. WandaVision gave us another leg in Wanda’s rise to evil, introducing Scarlet Witch. But we’ve already seen glimpses of just how bad Wanda can be, starting with The age of Ultron, Civil war, and especially End of the game.

That’s not to say we’d want less of Wanda if she turns out to be a huge MCU villain. But maybe the test audience didn’t like how dark it was Doctor Strange 2 it turned out to be. Filming may have to sort this out and tone down Wanda’s dark side.

Then there is also the cameo corner. We expected Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness to offer all kinds of crazy cameos. This is Marvel’s big break as everything is at stake thanks to the multiverse. To think What happens if …? characters, but condensed into a single film. If the above rumor is accurate, the new takes will “fix” this part of the story. And this is fantastic news. But unfortunately, we have no information on the new Doctor Strange 2 cast additions from the recent leaks.

In any case, we will wait for new ones Doctor Strange 2 leaks to detail the updated plot. Considering that the new release date for the film is May 6th, we have plenty of time to do it.
