Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Star Benedict Cumberbatch thinks the next Marvel Cinematic Universe movie will rival the success of Spider-Man: No Coming Home.

“It’s a big, big movie,” Cumberbatch said. Empire. “It’s going to be an absolute riot. And if it brings the level of ambition that he has, we’re going to have Spidey-level success. And that’s it, I’m going to put my flag in the sand.”

Spider-Man: No Coming Home effectively opened up the multiverse and paved the way for Multiverse of Madnesspresenting the first trailer of the strange doctor sequel as a post-credit scene at the end of the film. No coming home has consistently broken box office records since its theatrical release, becoming the first pandemic-era film to earn over $1 billion at the global box office. Following this success, it was reported that Multiverse of Madness would have “more fun with the multiverse”, with reshoots for the film including even more cameos and character introductions than originally planned.

In a December 2021 interview, Cumberbatch commented on the scale of the production, stating that he wasn’t entirely sure if the sequel was really “his” movie. “There’s a lot going on there,” he said at the time. “It’s like, do I have a character arc in there? Does it work? No, I have some great stuff to do. It’s very busy. It’s called The Multiverse of Madnessand it’s crazy.”

The first trailer for Multiverse of Madness teased everything Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was heading towards, outlining not just a possible team-up between Doctor Strange (Cumberbatch), Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), and Wong (Benedict Wong), but the beginnings of America’s MCU Chavez/Miss America (Xochitl Gomez). It has been confirmed that Multiverse of Madness will not resume only after the events of No coming home but will tie directly into two of Marvel’s Disney+ series, Wanda Vision and Lokiboth of which dealt heavily with the multiverse.

Multiverse of Madness recently completed numerous reshoots, which were described as “meaningful” when they began in November 2021. Additional material was helmed by director Sam Raimi and writer Michael Waldron, who served as editor for Loki. Raimi took over directing duties from Scott Derrickson, who directed the first film and left the sequel due to creative differences.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently slated for release on May 6, 2022.
