Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange had an action-packed excursion in Multiverse of Madness. The sequel introduced the Multiverse and gave Strange his most arduous struggle yet as he traveled beyond universes to battle the Scarlet Witch.
The Master of the Mystic Arts’ sequel was successful, but the film’s finale showed there are more tales to tell.
In the post-credits sequence, Clea recruits Strange to cure an Incursion he triggered, setting up his third solo film. Fans wonder whether Marvel Studios will make a sequel to Multiverse of Madness or if the plot will be preserved for another crossover film.
The MCU veteran discusses Doctor Strange 3.
Strange 3? Benedict Cumberbatch
Benedict Cumberbatch discussed a third Doctor Strange movie with The New Indian Express.
Cumberbatch stated he’d do a third film to complete his solo trilogy “There’s “so much more to explore” with the character, so “I hope so.” I’d do another. Doctor Strange is an intriguing figure with so much potential. I love portraying this intelligent character.”
Cumberbatch previously told Extra TV that Multiverse of Madness puts him up for an “interesting future” in the MCU:
“I can’t wait to see how fans respond and where this goes. Strange after the film. It puts him up for an intriguing future, however.
Cumberbatch said he was never a huge comic book reader and “knew nothing” about Doctor Strange. He asked people who Strange was “when pitching the character:
“I’m not and never have been a comic book enthusiast. I liked comics and Christopher Reeve’s Superman movies. I’m old! Doctor Strange was unknown to me. When I initially heard about him, I had to ask around. The more I learned about him, the more I liked him. He’s a great role.”
Cumberbatch was questioned whether he knew Doctor Strange would be a significant MCU character. The veteran actor says he’s “surprised” by Stranger’s popularity and had “no clue” the tale would lead to the Multiverse saga:
“True. I’m startled by his popularity. I always felt the character had great potential due to its facets, but I had no clue we’d be here with the Multiverse when we began.”
Cumberbatch revealed his fantasy Multiverse crossover: Doctor Strange and Banana Man. Banana Man is a British comic book superhero who changes into a cape-wearing schoolboy when he eats a banana. “I enjoy his pairing with Banana Man. I was a huge Banana Man fan as a youngster, so I enjoy the concept of seeing him.”
Doctor Strange 3: When?
Kevin Feige said Benedict Cumberbatch is the MCU’s “anchor” owing to his “tremendous” vision for Doctor Strange. His desire to return as The Master of the Mystic Arts is an excellent development for the series.
Since 2016, Cumberbatch has played Doctor Strange six times. The Multiverse of Madness is just the actor’s second solo feature. Still, his experience in Avengers crossovers like Iron Man and Spider-Man helped him mature and become stronger and wiser.
Given the sequel’s finale, a third Doctor Strange film seems inevitable for the MCU.
Doctor Strange 3 might explore incursions and how they influence Multiverse Earths. Charlize Theron’s Clea is a probable possibility for a significant role in the prospective threequel.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness premieres on June 22 on Disney+.
