Last month, HN Entertainment was able to confirm that Marvel Studios would be returning to the stages of Longcross Studios in Surrey, England for Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness.
We’ve now also learned that a portion of filming for the sequel will be taking place in Norway, an increasingly popular location recently used for Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow and the latest James Bond film No Time To Die.
There is also an expectation that they’ll return to New York City to film some exterior scenes as well.
Scott Derrickson recently exited the sequel and it has been reported by multiple outlets that Sam Raimi (Spider-Man 1-3) is taking over directing duties.
Derrickson has thrown his support behind Raimi not too long ago on Twitter.
The cast so far includes Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Benedict Wong as Wong, and Chiwetel Ejiofor as villain Baron Karl Mordo.
Scott had previously stated that he had hoped to include both Brother Voodoo and Clea in Doctor Strange 2, which are supporting characters that have been rumored for a year now to appear in the sequel.
Filming according to trades is still aiming to begin in May despite the director shakeup.
Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige has previously stated that Disney+ series WandaVision and Loki would help prime audiences for the events of the Doctor Strange sequel.
Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness will be released on May 7th, 2021.
