In October, Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness had gone back to reshoots, less than a year from its big cinema release. The reason for these additional shots? A desire on the part of Marvel and Disney to multiply cameos of key characters from Marvel, in order to please the spectators. Given the rave reviews from Spider-Man: No Way Home which brought back some characters deeply cemented in the hearts of viewers (Tobey Maguire, Andrew Garfield and Charlie Cox in Daredevil), Sam Raimi wish to ape the process. Hawkeye, last series MarvelDisney+ dated, also caused a stir by bringing back Wilson FiskVincent D’Onofrio.
Also, a lot of crazy rumors dot this Doctor Strange 2 at the cameo level. According to the latest news, there is talk of a presence of Charles Xavier (James McAvoy), Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) or even Mr.Fantastic and The Invisible Woman from the films of Tim Story (Ioan Gruffud and Jessica Alba).
The other reason is that originally, Spiderman was to come after Doctor Strange. Consequently, America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) which was to be the reason for the arrival of Tobey and Andrew in No Way Home, had to be erased from the script. There is no doubt that additional filming had to take place to guarantee continuity without false notes between No Way Home and Multiverse of Madness. In any case, and Deadline reports it: Doctor Strange 2 is almost complete. It will be released in theaters on May 4, 2022.
