It’s not on their immediate to-do list but Marvel Studios does plan to sequelize 2016’s “Doctor Strange”.
Speaking with Cinema Blend as part of the “Ant-Man and the Wasp” promo, studio present Kevin Feiege revealed that another standalone adventure for the Sorcerer Supreme is on the way – he just won’t say when.
“[Doctor] Strange, you know, whenever we do another Strange one, 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.”
With their new release strategy, explains Feige, they’re able to do more sequels.
“It’s one of the reasons we’ve expanded to three films a year, is so that we could do the sequels to films that people have responded to – because we love to make continuing stories with characters people have responded to – but also keep doing the stuff that nobody’s ever heard of, and people go, ‘Why are you doing that?’ That’s fun. And that’s what Phase One was built on, Phase Two was built on, Phase Three was built on, is having that… Whenever we announce the next year, two years, three years, five years, whatever we’re going to announce, there will be plenty of those that, maybe people in the know like yourself will know what they are, but the world at large will go, ‘What is it? Why are they doing that?’ That’s exciting, for sure.”
Benedict Cumberbatch recently reprised Doctor Strange for “Avengers : Infinity War”.
