HN Entertainment has been tracking a bunch of Marvel’s Phase 4 movies and we have learned of a secondary filming location for Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness.
The Doctor Strange sequel will mainly film at Pinewood Studios UK in England and we’ve now confirmed that some scenes will be shot in the United States (we believe that New York City, New York is expected to be that American locale).
Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum is located in New York City and Marvel has Marvel shot in the city when they’ve needed exterior shots with the first film. They used Atlanta for Avengers: Infinity War, mainly, because they were already there at Pinewood Studios Atlanta and it seemed to be a convenience thing.
Scott Derrickson will return to direct with screenwriter Jade Barlett reportedly working the script.
Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, and Benedict Wong are set to return with an assumption that Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Baron Mordo and Rachel McAdams’ Christine Palmer could be coming back as well.
Derrickson has teased previously on Twitter about adding Nightmare, Brother Voodoo, and also possibly Namor (he deleted that one). He also declared at San Diego Comic-Con that the Doctor Strange sequel would be the MCU’s first real scary/horror film.
Due to Elizabeth Olsen’s filming schedule for her Disney+ series WandaVision, we suspect that shooting won’t begin until around May-July.
WandaVision may also lead directly into Doctor Strange 2 and could see some of those actors/character carry over.
I’m excited to see who the official villain will be along with the rest of the film’s casting.
Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness has been set for release on May 7th, 2021.
