Marvel has been slow to release details of their upcoming films for phase 4. And for good reason too as Avengers: Infinity War left the franchise in a very precarious position for many of the filmís heroes. Outside of Spider-Man: Far From Home, we know very little about what is coming our way. There is a Black Widow prequel film reportedly in development and the inevitability of sequels to some of the big popular films like Black Panther.
One of the other successful new characters introduced in phase 3 was that of Doctor Strange and while it was also assumed that the movie would get a sequel, but nothing was heard about it until now. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that not only is Doctor Strange 2 now all but confirmed, but that original director Scott Derrickson has signed on to direct.
There is no official script for the project yet though and itís not clear if C. Robert Cargill will be returning to write the script this time around. Benedict $#@!berbatch will be returning to star as the titular Sorcerer Supreme, and Benedict Wong and Rachel McAdams are expected to return for what is scheduled to be a 2020 production and possible 2021 release (no word on Chiwetel Ejiofor Ė whose turn to villainy in the first film set up his Mordo up as the next big bad Ė but he will probably be there).
