Fittingly, the current MCU follow up Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness went through all way of variations and variations, with star Xochitl Gomez now exposing that the Marvel task had a frustrating overall of 33 rewrites. Leaping to the defense of author Michael Waldron, who has actually been greatly slammed by some for the Doctor Strange follow up, Gomez uses some insight into the pressures place on Waldron behind-the-scenes (by means of @DrStrangeUpdate).

Released in 2015, and the 28th movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness even more opens the Multiverse and presses its limits even more than ever previously. The follow up takes audiences on a journey into the unidentified with Doctor Strange, who, with the aid of magical allies both old and brand-new, passes through the mind-bending and unsafe alternate truths of the Multiverse to challenge a strange brand-new foe.

Directed by scary genius Sam Raimi and starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange, Elizabeth Olsen as the now-villainous Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch, with Xochitl Gomez signing up with the fray as America Chavez, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was fulfilled reasonably well by both critics and audiences, however lots of leveled criticisms at the MCU follow-up.

The primary attack line drawn from both critics and audiences targeted at the excessively brand-savvy method to what might have been a significant mix-up of the MCU formula. Instead of the madness of the multiverse making distinct choices and taking audiences on an amazing, unforeseen journey, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness rather feels more strangled by the Marvel brand name than ever previously. Which, thinking about the discovery that it needed as lots of as 33 rewrites, all of a sudden begins to make a lot of sense…

Hopefully, the advancement of Doctor Strange 3 will fare much better than its predecessor. While there are no strong information concerning the threequel, star Benedict Cumberbatch has actually stated that he would enjoy to come back for more. “I would love to do another one. Doctor Strange is such a complex character, and it feels like there is so much more to explore with him. He is such a brilliant character, and I’m still having a wild time playing him, ” the star stated.

Based on the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness mid-credits scene, it is practically ensured that Doctor Strange 3 will follow the Avenger as he gets in the Dark Dimension along with the sorceress Clea, played by Charlize Theron. “We always knew we wanted to introduce Clea, who in the comics is you could say the great love of Doctor Strange, but really in a lot of ways his formidable equal as a sorcerer herself,” Michael Waldron stated in 2015. “Her backstory is fascinating, she’s the niece of Dormammu, the giant floating head from the first movie.”

Until then, the MCU marches on. We are now in Phase 5 of the ever-growing franchise, which is all set to include follows up such as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, The Marvels, and Captain America: New World Order, along with Thunderbolts and the Blade reboot.
