Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will have to wait a little longer to conjure its spell. The Disney/Marvel Studios film has moved from Nov. 5, 2021, to March 25, 2022, amid the coronavirus crisis, which has delayed a number of studio tentpoles.
The film, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch and is from director Sam Raimi, had already been pushed once because of the pandemic, from May 2021 to the early November frame.
The latest move came minutes after Sony and Marvel Studios pushed back their untitled Spider-Man sequel from summer 2021 to Nov. 5, 2021.
On Friday, Disney also moved Thor: Love and Thunder up one week to Feb. 11, 2022 (it previously had been slated for Feb. 18, 2022). On April 3, Disney shifted much of its slate in response to the pandemic, including virtually all of the MCU’s Phase 4 movies.
Michael Waldron, head writer Marvel’s upcoming Disney+ series Loki, is writing the Doctor Strange sequel. Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme first appeared in the 2016 film directed by Scott Derrickson and also in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, in addition to a cameo in Thor: Ragnarok.
