Many fans are curious about the state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe after Avengers 4, which remains a mystery just months before the film premieres in theaters. After the indefinite postponement of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, the only film on the docket is Spider-Man: Far From Home. But now we might have a better idea of what’s coming next.
Avengers: Infinity War actor Benedict Wong teased that he’s reprising his role as Wong for next year’s untitled sequel, but more importantly he teased that he’s returning to film Doctor Strange 2 at the end of the year. The actor was speaking at Fan Expo Vancouver when he dropped the big bombshell.
This isn’t the first hint that a Doctor Strange sequel was in the works, as director Scott Derrickson has been persistent in teasing some mind-bending panels from Steve Ditko’s comics, much like he did before beginning work on the first film.
Then there was also a report earlier this summer that said Benedict Cumberbatch was getting a major payday to return to reprise the role of the Sorcerer Supreme for his second solo film.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige has not been shy about his desire to see a sequel, but with so many characters and franchise to build up, it’s hard to find time to fit everything in during their three-film-per-year schedule.
