Pre-production stages for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness are set to begin filming this summer on schedule and remotely.
The widespread spread of Coronavirus has stalled the production of many films and even delayed release of major films. On the other hand, there are other projects ready to begin production, which, given the Corona outbreak, are uncertain. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is one of those projects. The pre-production stages of this anticipated movie from the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues.
In his report, Variety also discussed the state of production of Doctor Strange’s sequel, according to which the pre-production stages of the program were directed by Sam Remy. The filmmaker is doing day-to-day telework.
According to close sources, the filming process for Doctor Strange 2 is still scheduled to begin in June. Despite the potential for designated construction, international travel and working with a large production team remains an issue. Meanwhile, filming of other major projects, such as The Batman, The Matrix, Avatar sequels, Mission Impossible, and Red Notice, has been suspended for an indefinite period of time.
Remy is now succeeding Scott Drexson as the director of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and Michael Waldron, the writer, consultant and producer of the Loki series, has been tasked with rewriting the script for the film.
So far, Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximov (Scarlett Witch), and Benedict Wang as Wang in the sequel to Doctor Strange have been confirmed in the cast line-up.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is scheduled for release on May 9, 2021.
