Doctor Strange 2’s Main Villain Has Reportedly Been Revealed

For a studio that would often reveal years’ worth of upcoming movies at their own Apple-like event, Marvel’s been keeping awfully quiet in regards to what awaits us in Phase 4. True, we do know a little bit about what’s on the way, with films like The Eternals and Shang-Chi now in pre-production, and a Black Widow standalone pic currently shooting, too, but we haven’t heard a whole lot about the sequels to Black Panther and Doctor Strange. Now that Endgame has come and gone, though, we expect that to change very quickly.

In fact, if recent reports are to be believed, Doctor Strange 2, which is deep in development at the House of Ideas with director Scott Derrickson and screenwriter C. Robert Cargill on board, may be with us on November 5th, 2021. That’s not too far off now and with the sequel beginning to come together,

Doctor Strange 2 Shooting Next Year with New Writer Onboard?

Doctor Strange 2 may finally kick off production next year according to star Benedict Wong. Though, it may be coming with some changes behind the scenes. At present, the Sorcerer Supreme is going on something of a streak. While the character and some of his counterparts have appeared in several movies, including Avengers: Endgame, since 2016's Doctor Strange, another solo movie has yet to see the light of day. By the time one does roll around, it will probably be the longest gap between solo installments ever in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fortunately, it seems as though those wheels are finally turning.

Benedict Wong who plays Master of the Mystic Arts Wong in the McU, was recently asked about the sequel in an interview. While a previous report indicated that the movie could arrive as early as next year, according to the actor, the movie will likely shoot next year,

Doctor Strange 2 Rumored To Be With Us In November 2021

For a studio that used to announce years’ worth of upcoming movies at their own Apple-like event, Marvel’s been keeping pretty tight-lipped on their future phase of films. Sure, we know a little bit about what’s to come, like The Eternals and Shang-Chi are both set to make their big screen debuts, and a Black Widow standalone pic is in development, too, but we’ve barely heard a word about follow-ups to their past solo successes like Black Panther and Doctor Strange. Now that Endgame has had its time in the sun though, we expect that to change very quickly.

In fact, if new rumors are to be believed, Doctor Strange 2, which is deep into development at Marvel with director Scott Derrickson and screenwriter C. Robert Cargill attached, may be with us on November 5th, 2021. This comes from an unverified leak – the same one which shared

Defending Robert Pattinson’s Batman Casting: He’s Way More Than A ‘Twilight’ Heartthrob

Defending Robert Pattinson’s Batman Casting: He’s Way More Than A ‘Twilight’ Heartthrob
The internet went into a predictable frenzy after news broke May 16 that Robert Pattinson had emerged as the leading contender to take over the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in a new superhero tentpole from Matt Reeves. While the casting has not been made official by Warner Bros., Variety reports the hiring is all but confirmed as Pattinson “is the top choice and the deal is expected to close shortly.” Reeves’ Batman movie is going into pre-production this summer.

Pattinson’s casting sparked some backlash online from Batman lovers and fans of the DC Extended Universe who don’t think casting the “heartthrob from the ‘Twilight’ movies” is a smart idea for one of the most beloved comic book characters. Pattinson would join actors such as Michael Keaton, Christian Bale, and Ben Affleck in playing the Caped Crusader on the big screen. While some fans complained about the casting, many

Doctor Strange 2 May Feature Brother Voodoo And The Ancient One

For a studio that used to debut years’ worth of upcoming titles in their own Apple-like event, Marvel has been relatively tight-lipped on their future phase of films. Sure, we know little details here and there, like The Eternals and Shang-Chi are both set to make their big screen debuts, and a Black Widow prequel is in development, but we’ve barely heard a word about follow-ups to their past solo successes like Black Panther and Doctor Strange. But now that Endgame has come and gone, we expect that to change very quickly.

If new rumors are to be believed, Doctor Strange 2, which is deep into development behind studio doors by director Scott Derrickson and screenwriter C. Robert Cargill, may feature two brand new characters, and the surprising return of a few more.

Doctor Strange 2 Will Reportedly Include Marvel Characters Brother VooDoo and Clea

We know that director Scott Derrickson is currently developing Doctor Strange 2 for Marvel, and there’s a very good chance that it will be one of the films officially announced by the studio later this summer.

We also know that Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his role as Stephen Strange, and now we’ve learned that some new characters might be joining him. According to the mysterious Twitter account @RogerWardell, who previously revealed several legit plot points for Avengers: Endgame long before in came out, Doctor Strange 2 will introduce the Marvel characters Jericho Drumm, a.k.a. Brother Voodoo, and Clea to the McU.

In addition to the two new characters, it’s also reported that Tilda Swinton is in talks to reprise her role as the Ancient One, which would make sense. It also says the look and feel of the film will be akin to a "1980s boogaloo.

The Marvel Movies Debrief: Doctor Strange Recap, Legacy, and McU Connections

Kirsten Howard Apr 10, 2019

One of the sillier McU films, Doctor Strange nevertheless packs a spectacular punch.

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

This article contains spoilers for Doctor Strange and the wider McU.

The slightly unfortunate thing about the magical corner of the Marvel Universe is that it’s really very silly, but that also just so happens to be what totally rocks about it. One of the biggest triumphs of Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange is that you can genuinely manage to forget it’s so incredibly silly fairly early on, which is pretty much a miracle when the movie kicks off by giving us a glimpse of the mystical world in the form of a bald Tilda Swinton having some kind of magical glowing fan fight up the side of a rolling Inception building with fandom’s most precious Hannibal Lecter.

Is Doctor Strange 2 Coming in 2020?

It sounds like we may be getting more of the Sorcerer Supreme a little sooner than we expected as Doctor Strange 2 could be one of Marvel's 2020 titles. Benedict Cumberbatch made his debut as the character in 2016's Doctor Strange, which opened up an entirely new side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since then, he's appeared in several other movies, including Thor: Ragnarok and Infinity War, but he's yet to get a sequel to his own movie. However, that's going to change in the relatively near future and the only real question is when we'll actually see it, and it could very well be next year.

Disney recently presented their 2019 slate at CinemaCon in Las Vegas and they put on quite a show. They opted not to reveal what Marvel movies they have coming beyond Avengers: Endgame though, which is understandable since they don't want to spoil any potential surprises.

There Are Now 7 McU Movies Planned After Avengers: Endgame

There Are Now 7 McU Movies Planned After Avengers: Endgame
What movies are coming our way after Avengers: Endgame? A burning question with at least some answers. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been going strong for more than a decade now and has more than 20 movies under its umbrella. Captain Marvel has been racking up the dollars at the box office recently, which is already well on its way to crossing the $1 billion mark worldwide. With that, it would seem this grand experiment that started in relatively humble fashion with Iron Man back in 2008, is showing no signs of slowing down whatsoever.

Next up on the McU roster is Avengers: Endgame. This serves as the conclusion to the tale being told within this interconnected universe thus far. Both Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and directors Joe and Anthony Russo have made as much clear. The question at this point is, what can we expect beyond Avengers: Endgame?

Sinister 3 Isn't Happening, But a TV Show Is Possible

Blumhouse has quickly become one of the top names in horror over the past decade or so. From hits like the Paranormal Activity franchise to the Insidious flicks, Blumhouse seems to spawn popular film franchises like hotcakes. But then you have something like Sinister which tried to go the franchise route, but seemed to have stalled out following its lackluster sequel. But does that mean the Sinister series is dead-dead? Yeah, it looks like it. Today we have word via Blumhouse head honcho himself Jason Blum that it doesn't look like there will ever be a Sinister 3... but there might be a TV series in the works.

Blum shared this update over on Twitter where he recently conducted a Q & A with fans. Pretty quickly after kicking off the session, a fan asked Jason Blum if Sinister 3 was a possibility. To which Blum simply replied.

"Nope. :("

Marvel's May 2020 Movie Won't Be Announced Until After Spider-Man: Far from Home

Marvel's first McU movie of 2020 will land in theaters on May 1, but we have no idea what it will be. And we're not going to find out until all of the Phase 3 movies have finally hit theaters, including Spider-Man: Far from Home. Many believed and speculated that Marvel would be dropping its Phase 4 slate after everyone got a chance to see Avengers: Endgame. But that's not how it will work. Out promoting Captain Marvel, McU boss Kevin Feige had this to say.

"The game plan is to not reveal the game plan until after Endgame and Far From Home... And wanting the focus to be on, of course, Captain Marvel, Endgame, Far From Home, and really what will be a 23-movie journey, and there'll be plenty of time to talk about what comes after that."

It's always been the belief that Spider-Man: Far From Home is the first movie in the Phase 4 line-up,

Doctor Strange 2 Brings Back Original Writer C. Robert Cargill?

Doctor Strange 2 looks to be bringing back the original team that helped make the first movie a success. We learned last month that director Scott Derrickson has closed a deal to come back for the sequel. His involvement had largely been expected and, though Marvel Studios hasn't officially announced anything, he's locked in. But the question has been, who is going to pen the screenplay? Again, Marvel has yet to confirm this, but it's reportedly going to be C. Robert Cargill, who helped pen the original.

According to a new report, C. Robert Cargill is set to pen a draft of Doctor Strange 2. Marvel Studios will review this draft before finalizing the deal, but this is a move that seems to make a great deal of sense. Not only did Cargill pen the original, but he was also the writer who was on set during production and he has an excellent working relationship,

Doctor Strange screenwriter reportedly signs on for sequel

Back in December it was confirmed that Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson is officially on board the sequel to Marvel’s 2016 origin story for the Sorcerer Supreme, and now That Hashtag Show is reporting that he’ll be joined by his Sinister and Doctor Strange screenwriter C. Robert Cargill.

Details on Doctor Strange 2 are scarce, but we do know that Benedict Cumberbatch will be back as the Master of the Mystic Arts along with Benedict Wong as Wong, and that Marvel is looking to begin production on the movie in the spring of 2020 for release in May 2021.

Back in 2018, Cargill had teased where Doctor Strange 2 might go, with the screenwriter stating:

“Nightmare will be the villain. Me and Scott have not laid the groundwork for it but what I can say is that I have a feeling that whatever Nightmare is involved with, Baron Mordo, being somebody who

Doctor Strange Writer Returning To Pen The Sequel

Though Stephen Strange met a sad end in last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, it doesn’t take the power of prophecy to know that we haven’t seen the last of the Sorcerer Supreme, with Doctor Strange 2 confirmed to be in the works.

We also know that director Scott Derrickson will be returning to the helm, making it no great shock to hear from That Hashtag Show that writer C. Robert Cargill is back to pen the script. The report alleges that Cargill is producing a screenplay that Marvel Studios will review before the deal is finalized. And while the news isn’t official just yet, it would come as a genuine surprise to hear that the writer wasn’t involved given how often he and Derrickson have worked together, having collaborated on the first Doctor Strange as well as the two Sinister movies.

Last year, Cargill even

Book Review – Sea of Rust by C. Robert Cargill

Michelle Herbert reviews Sea of Rust by C. Robert Cargill

Sea of Rust is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. It is unlike many post-apocalyptic settings that we have read before, as humanity has been decimated and all those surviving in the Sea of Rust are robots. Some, those known as freebots were created by humanity, while others were created by A.I.’s. For some robots, this world is a utopia as there are no longer human overlords and directives to follow, but the novel is very dystopic, as there is now a different kind of hierarchical structure to this world, which leads us to meet a robot named Battle who is trying their utmost to be left alone.

When we meet Battle, they are stalking a robot in the Sea of Rust, waiting until they can take the robot’s parts for scrap and trade. Battle is completely dispassionate

Scott Derrickson to return to the helm on ‘Doctor Strange’ sequel

  • HeyUGuys
The subject of a ‘Doctor Strange’ sequel has been talked about ever since the first landed and even the death of Strange at the finger snapping hands of Thanos can keep the good doctor down. It has been confirmed there will be a follow-up and Scott Derrickson has signed on to return to the helm. There is no word yet that his writing partner C. Robert Cargill will be back to co-write the script.

Benedict Cumberbatch will return as Stephen Strange, the good doctor-turned-master of the mystic arts, as will Benedict Wong, who plays his right-hand man, Wong. Rachael McAdams, who played Stephen Strange’s love interest, is thought to be returning as well.

Derrickson also wrote the first, but it’s looking like he might not put pen to paper for the sequel as word is Marvel are currently searching for a new scribe.

Doctor Strange 2 Brings Back Original Director Scott Derrickson

Doctor Strange 2 Brings Back Original Director Scott Derrickson
Doctor Strange 2 has finally gained some traction as director Scott Derrickson has signed on to helm the sequel. Marvel has yet to officially announce that the follow-up is happening, but the first movie's success and the character's growing popularity have all but assured that it's an inevitability. And one of the key elements that helped to make the first movie such a success is going to be back at the helm to help make the Marvel Cinematic Universe weird and magical.

According to a new report, Scott Derrickson has quietly closed a deal to return for Doctor Strange 2. The studio will now try to find a writer to pen the screenplay for the sequel. The screenplay for the first movie was credited to Jon Spaihts, who penned an earlier draft, C. Robert Cargill and Derrickson. Cargill had also worked with Derrickson on his horror movie Sinister and the writer had
