Less than 24 hours after Murphy’s Multiverse reported on Marvel Studios’ production status on their upcoming film Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, the site has uncovered a cool new detail regarding to the project.
According to the site, the film will shoot under the working title, “Stellar Vortex.” The working title could hint at America Chavez, who will make her debut in the film and possibly have an expanded role, as her powers consist of being able to kick open holes in reality, allowing her and her teammates to travel through the multiverse and into other realities.
Production is expected to kick off in November at Longcross Studios in Surrey, England. So here is hoping the studio can safely get this done, as production on Warner Bros. highly-anticipated DC flick, The Batman, halted due to Star Robert Pattinson testing positive for COVID-19.
The film was expected to hit theaters on May 7, 2021, but due to the impact of the coronavirus, which shut down and halted major productions, the film was moved to a November 5, 2021 release before eventually landing on March 25, 2022. Could we see the film slide back into that November 2021 release? I personally don’t think so, but the door has slightly opened for that possibility with production a little over three months away now.
Directed by Sam Raimi (the original Spider-Man trilogy) and written by Jade Bartlett (The Turning), Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will see the return of Benedict Cumberbatch as the sorcerer supreme, Benedict Wong as Wong, and will introduce Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch as her Disney+ series WandaVision will lead directly into the film. Rachel McAdams who played Dr. Christine Palmer in the first film is not expected to return.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is scheduled to hit theaters on March 25, 2022.
