HN Entertainment has learned that Doctor Strange composer Michael Giacchino is expected to return and score the sequel titled Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness.
This new movie according to director Scott Derrickson will be the first scary MCU movie and is being talked-up as doing a deep dive into the comic’s horror roots.
This won’t be the first Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel he has done, he recently returned to score Spider-Man: Far From Home after previously tackling Spider-Man: Homecoming.
Michael’s other extensive credits consist of Jojo Rabbit, Incredibles 2, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, War For The Planet of The Apes, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Star Trey Beyond, Jurassic World, Dawn of The Planet of The Apes, John Carter, Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol, Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, and Speed Racer.
The film’s current cast includes Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular Doctor Strange and will seem the Sorcerer Supreme paired with Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch.
There had been some talk of Benedict Wong and Rachel McAdams reprising their roles as well, but that hasn’t been announced by Marvel Studios.
I have to assume that the sequel will begin filming the first/second quarter of 2020 at Pinewood Studios UK.
Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness is officially set for release on May 7th, 2021.
