Marvel has been really quiet when it comes to its post-Avengers 4 plans.
The studio hasn’t officially announced plans for Phase 4, outside of Spider-Man: Far From Home and Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3. However, one of the projects fans have been very vocal about is a Doctor Strange sequel.
Speaking with CinemaBlend, Marvel Studios guru Kevin Feige confirmed we will see Stephen Strange again on the big screen.
Sometimes it’s where do those characters pop up? [Doctor] Strange, you know, whenever we do another Strange [movie], which we will do, it will be a number of years from the first Strange, and yet he’s a very big part of Infinity War. So it is just a good problem to have when you have too many beloved characters that people want to see more of, whilst keeping to our core belief that we need to keep exploring nuance and keep doing different types of things.
Benedict Cumberbatch debuted as the Sorcerer Supreme in in 2016’s Doctor Strange and has since appeared in Thor: Ragnarok and had a sizable part in Avengers: Infinity War. Earlier in the year, Cumberbatch said he was “unsure” about a Doctor Strange sequel, but much of this could’ve been to not spoil Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4.
With sequels based on Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy on the way – along with likely sequels to Black Panther and Ant-Man and the Wasp – Marvel fans will have much to look forward to once Marvel Studios reveals its new plans next year.
Are you guys excited about another Doctor Strange film?
