Doctor Strange 2 In Its Final Week of Production!

This is not a drill people! Kevin Feige himself confirmed that Doctor Strange 2, ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ is in it’s final week of production. The long awaited sequel to ‘Doctor Strange’ (2016) will be released in March 2022, which is still a long way off, unfortunately.

The film will have everyone reprising their roles, which includes Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange, Benedict Wong as Wong, Rachel McAdams and even Chiwetel Ejiofor as Karl Mordo, who we haven’t since the end credit scene of the first ‘Doctor Strange’.

The movie will also feature Elizabeth Olsen reprising her role as Wanda Maximoff presumably right after the end of her show, ‘WandaVision’.  We were left shook and gagged at the conclusion of the Disney + hit and now fully embracing herself as the Scarlett Witch, we have no idea how she comes across Strange again; whether she goes to him for magical studies help, or if he actually comes to her for help to stop Mordo, who could be the villain for the sequel is up in the air.  Will she start her journey to find her boys in the multiverse and will Strange be a friend or foe in her pursuit for her children?

The sequel is also slated to introduce America Chavez into the MCEU. The young super hero will be played by Xochitl Gomez of Netflix’s ‘The Babysitters Club’. Let us know what you guys think! How excited are you to see Doctor Strange 2? And what do you think Wanda’s involvement in the movie look like?

Poster Revealed for Enchanting ‘Maleficent’ Sequel

Moving up on the release schedule for a Fall 2019 release (Fall 2019? That’s this year!) is the sequel to 2014’s Maleficent, entitled Maleficent: Mistress of Evil.

Disney offered an insider preview when production began last May, calling the film:

A fantasy adventure that picks up several years after Maleficent, in which audiences learned of the events that hardened the heart of Disney’s most notorious villain and drove her to curse a baby Princess Aurora, Maleficent II continues to explore the complex relationship between the horned fairy and the soon to be Queen, as they form new alliances and face new adversaries in their struggle to protect the moors and the magical creatures that reside within.

Now, the film is back in our movie-going consciousness with a cool new poster:

Isn’t it snazzy?

Angelina Jolie, the star of the film, first hinted at a sequel back in 2014 in an interview with The Hollywood Reportewith a sly “maybe I’ll get the chance to play her again.”

Then we had to wait until April 25, 2016 for Disney to finally give us the official word; in the original Variety report, Disney also confirmed Jungle Book 2 (where is that, Disney?) and Mary Poppins 2 (remember that this past December?).

Once Joachim Rønning was brought on board as director—replacing Robert Stromberg—we got the hint that filming was expected to start in the first quarter of 2018.

In April, Variety dropped an exclusive—Ed Skrein (who played Ajax in Deadpool) was cast as the film’s villain, and, in May, they also offered up an exciting announcement that Harris Dickinson had replaced Brenton Thwaites in the role of Prince Phillip.

There have been other actors announced to be in the film, including Chiwetel Ejiofor—who will voice Scar in the 2019 remake of The Lion King. Hopefully, we have more news before the film comes out, but personally I don’t want any spoilers until October 18, 2019 when Angelina Jolie is back up on the big screen wearing the iconic horns of a big bad from Disney’s classics.
