The Marvel Cinematic Universe is moving full steam ahead with the currently announced films in the remainder of Phase 3 and moving into the fourth. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t some peripheral ideas in motion that are worth mentioning, as well. A possible Doctor Strange 2 movie is definitely a topic of discussion, and Kevin Feige has already admitted that it is something that will be done in the coming years.
During an interview with Cinema Blend, the big chief over at Marvel Studios had this to say surrounding a sequel to Doctor Strange.
“Sometimes it’s where do those characters pop up? [Doctor] Strange, you know, whenever we do another Strange [movie], 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. So it is just a good problem to have when you have too many beloved characters that people want to see more of, whilst keeping to our core belief that we need to keep exploring nuance and keep doing different types of things.”
Well, if it came from the president then it’s something you can bet he’ll follow up on when the time is right. In the meanwhile, the creative wheelhouse has been churning forth ideas for the storyline. Some more good news came in the form of a Q&A with the co-writer of Doctor Strange, C. Robert Cargill, who talked about the potential story arc for villains in their current frame of planning for the sequel.
The writer said:
“Marvel movies work in threes. They also work outside of their threes. Some of the better Marvel films have more than one villain in them. 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 considers himself the defender of natural law, will have something to do with it.”
