Marvel set a premiere window for the next “Doctor Strange” movie, called “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” The movie is scheduled to hit theaters in 2021, and Marvel Studios is teasing that the film is the closest thing to a horror-thriller that Marvel has released to date. Kevin Feige assured viewers that it would be “PG-13 and you’re going to like it!” so don’t worry about Marvel switching up its award-winning style too much.
The movie’s title was announced during Marvel Studio’s comic-con panel on Saturday, along with “The Eternals” and “Shang Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings.”
The Disney+ series “WandaVision” is a prequel to the story in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” and Elizabeth Olsen appears in both the series and the film. More details on that series will be announced as we get closer to the Disney+ launch date later this year.
The original “Doctor Strange” movie released in 2016 and introduced Benedict Cumberbatch to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The movie also featured Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Mads Mikkelsen. “Doctor Strange” was a November hit, opening with a $85M opening weekend before going on to make over $677.7M worldwide. Fans of the good Doctor should be happy to know that his new movie is on the way, even though we have to wait until 2021 to see it in theaters. Fans of the character should set a reminder to subscribe to Disney+ to see “WandaVision,” which will launch alongside the service later this year if everything goes according to plan. More details on Disney+ are coming during Disney’s big D23 conference in August.
