Benedict Cumberbatch reassures fans on reasons for reshoots

The end of the year 2021 is very eventful at Marvel. The most expected of the whole decade is none other than Spider-Man : No Way Home, which we are promised the reunion of the universes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and those of Sony’s Spider-Man Universe, with all the cult Spider-Man actors brought together in a single film. However, 2022 will have nothing to envy him with the next Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, whose filming took a very long delay. The reasons for this were until recently unofficial.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness : six weeks of reshoots

A year. The film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was postponed for a year. The one who should have to be released in May 2021 will finally be viewable in theaters as early as May 2022, and this causes many problems for the timeline of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), mainly because the film based on the adventures of the magician and timekeeper Stephen Strange was to come out in parallel with the adventures of Loki in the series dedicated to him, in order to offer the viewer a full explanation of the multiverse and its branches, as well as certainly introduce one of the lieutenants of Kang the Conqueror if not the next Marvel protagonist himself. Unfortunately, after many problems, the most important of which is the Covid-19 pandemic, the movie has been delayed many times.

Recently we learned that many reshoots, i.e. additional filming phases had been scheduled, with an impressive pace of six weeks and six days of work per week. On the internet, this caused a huge buzz, everyone going for their own theory. The most pessimists believing that the film was bad and that Marvel forced to return new scenes, even that some did not please Disney who imposed his vision on Marvel. Others believe new scenes needed to be added because of the movie’s shift in the Marvel timeline, since Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be released AFTER Spider-Man : No Way Home, who also has Stephen Strange as the main character. Finally, it is the actor Benedict Cumberbatch himself who will give the magazine a first element of answer. Empire, and it’s a bit disappointing:

“We’re in the middle of the Reshoots right now. We’re working with an incredibly sustained schedule to give the film its full potential. There are songs we want to do better but also songs and sequences that we just couldn’t do. shoot a few months ago, because of logistics, Covid and other things. We were so delayed in production because of that … luckily there wasn’t so much downtime that that, just that everything was much slower. “

Doctor Strange 2 : A magician is never late …

Benedict Cumberbatch is therefore reassuring on the reasons for the delay of the film, and it doesn’t seem like there were any fixes to the script of the film, just that production was incredibly delayed because of the pandemic. On the other hand, the actor of Stephen Strange does not specify if the delay was also or not related to the availability of the actors. For now, he is “very excited” as he said in an interview with the Today Show :

Sam Raimi is at the helm, so expect some amazing things. And yes, we’re making it even better: we have reshoots coming in November and December, and it’s coming out in May. And I guess you’ll have to wait until then …

So far we know that Stephen Strange will not be alone in the film, as he will also be accompanied by Loki and Wanda and probably another Avengers., both having been entitled to their Disney + series. The wizard should help Wanda better control her newfound chaos witch powers, while his former friend Karl Mordo, who became his enemy after the attack on Dormammu, seeks to suppress all wizards of the Earth. The film is still scheduled for May 4, 2022 in France, and May 6, 2022 in the United States. Can we negotiate to make things go faster?
