“Yeah, I think so. I hope so. As far as I know,” Wong advised Deseret News forward of an look at FanX Salt Lake City Comic Convention over the weekend. “I tend to find out with everyone else. I think I’m probably the last one to know. When I get the call, you know, I’m there.”
The star, whose sorcerer Wong is one of the Masters of the Mystic Arts who fought alongside a resurrected Stephen Strange in the battle towards Thanos (Josh Brolin) and his military in Avengers: Endgame, would be part of confirmed stars Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen. Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige introduced Olsen’s Wanda, a.okay.a. Scarlet Witch, could be concerned when formally unveiling the venture at San Diego Comic-Con in July.
Multiverse of Madness guarantees to be the primary “scary” movie out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“When I came and talked to Kevin about doing a sequel, I said I don’t want to do just another sequel to do a sequel,” returning Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson mentioned throughout Marvel’s Phase 4 unveiling from Hall H. “If I’m gonna do it, it has to go into the territory that drew me into the Doctor Strange comics in the first place, which is how they dipped into the gothic and the horror and the horrific, and we’re gonna make the first scary MCU film.”
It will not be but identified if Rachel McAdams, who co-starred with Cumberbatch and Wong in 2016’s Doctor Strange, will reprise her position as Strange’s as soon as lover Christine Palmer. Expected to return is Chiwetel Ejiofor, whose ally-turned-enemy Karl Mordo was final seen searching what he believes to be an extreme quantity of magic customers.
Doctor Strange screenwriter C. Robert Cargill beforehand famous the studio has plans for the character which might be similar to the trail taken with the recurring Loki (Tom Hiddleston).
“For those of you who have ever read the comics, you know that Baron Mordo has a very particular arc, and that’s something we discussed with Chiwetel while working on the first movie,” Cargill mentioned in a previous interview. “And part of the reason Chiwetel wanted to play Mordo was because he has a definitive ending as a character and it’s such a fascinating ending. And I do know that whether we’re attached or not, that Marvel plans on working towards that ending and fully realizing Mordo as more than just a cardboard cutout villain, but actually taking him to kind of Loki levels of awesomeness. That’s the goal with him.”
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is ready for May 7, 2021.
