Doctor Strange star Benedict Cumberbatch has surprised fans by revealing he has no idea when Doctor Strange 2 will begin production. That’s all the more surprising given the reason he’s cited; that the MCU’s future is in a state of flux.
Back in 2014, Marvel Studios announced an ambitious slate of films that would run all the way through to 2019’s Avengers 4. That announcement has left fans convinced that Marvel plays the long game, an idea apparently confirmed in January of this year when Kevin Feige revealed that Marvel is currently working on the next 20 films.
Still, one idea that’s clearly in the works at some point is Doctor Strange 2. The sequel was carefully set up in 2016’s Doctor Strange, which closed with Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Baron Mordo beginning to take his first steps to become a villain. In spite of that setup, though, there’s been no news since about the sequel.
