According to Marvel Studio’s Kevin Feige, some mystery characters will join Benedict Cumberbatch in Doctor Strange 2 next year. The Academy Award nominee for Black Panther shares this during a Q&A session at New York Film Academy.
Who is Joining Benedict Cumberbatch in Doctor Strange 2?
Marvel President Kevin Feige has confirmed the majority of Doctor Strange 2 characters but there are still some unanswered questions surrounding this subject. One of these questions pertains to the MCU Villain Nightmare.
Fans wanted to know whether Nightmare will appear in Doctor Strange 2 and who will embody the villain? The answer is still a mystery and we only have a leak by 4Chan that points to Jared Leto as the most likely candidate. Eva Green, Emily Blunt, Claire Foy, Vanessa Kirby, Natalie Dormer, Ewan McGregor, James McAvoy, Cillian Murphy, and Dan Stevens are some of the other names in the race.
Now, Kevin Feige has dropped another mystery bomb regarding ‘Doctor Strange: The Multiverse of Madness’. While answering a few questions at the New York Film Academy, Marvel President teased the appearance of some unexpected Marvel characters. Kevin Feige calls Doctor Strange 2, a “surprise for viewers.”
Sometimes you’re choosing title hero, you’re choosing which main character or main team you want to bring to the screen and oftentimes, it’s as you’re making and developing the movie – Who will come into it? Who will fit into it?
Kevin Feige says that the 2021 movie will feature some never before seen characters.
Doctor Strange 2, for instance, features some new MCU characters that will be making their debut in the movie. You won’t expect or won’t guess who it is but we found a cool way to make it work. We want to make a particular type of movie there. There was a character we always wanted to do something with who will fit really well there.
These revelations by Kevin Feige will kick-start a whole slew of new rumors and leaks. Let’s see what comes out of these as we near Doctor Strange 2 release date.
What is Kevin Feige’s new film about and what is the Release Date?
The events of Avengers: Infinity War cost Dr. Stephen Strange the time-stone. It means that Doctor Strange 2 will see him fighting enemies with comparatively less power. It’s also part of MCU’s Phase 4 and we will surely see the plot set in a multi-dimensional world. Kevin Feige also talks about the other projects related to Phase 4 in the same Q&A session, such as Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
The story-line might also contain references from Infinity War because that’s when he sacrificed his time-stone. Kevin Feige’s film will hit the screens on May 7, 2021. Dankanator will keep you updated.
