Elizabeth Olsen says Doctor Strange 2 is bonkers and has a horror show vibe
Get ready for some crazy horror gimmicks Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness. This, according to Elizabeth Olsen, who will return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch. While certain details of the long-awaited sequel are not yet known, the film seems to take the MCU into previously unknown territory.
Elizabeth Olsen, fresh from WandaVision, was recently the subject of an extensive cover story. The subject of Doctor Strange 2 was raised during the conversation. Given the mysterious nature of the sequel at this stage, she couldn’t say too much about it. However, she was ready to give us a general sense of what to expect from it. Here’s what she had to say.
“It’s a crazy movie, they are definitely going to go for that horror show vibe.”
This fits in with some of what we’ve heard about the film in the past. For one, when it was first announced at San Diego Comic-Con in 2019, Scott Derrickson stated that they were “making the first scary MCU movie.” Derrickson, who made horror films like Sinister and The Exorcism of Emily Rose, directed the first Doctor Strange. He was tied to the follow-up, but had ignored creative differences. He stays on board as a producer.
Sam Raimi was then brought in for takeover. As well as having a good superhero belief in the original live-action Spider-Man trilogy, Raimi has a huge horror pedigree where he made The Evil Dead films as well as Drag Me To Hell. As for the “Bonkers” element, Michael Waldron was eventually brought in to write the script. Since Waldron is best known for his work on Rick and Morty, that makes sense too.
In addition, specific details of the plot remain elusive. The title confirms that the MCU will advance into the territory of the multiverse. Spider-Man: No Way Home will also open the Marvel Multiverse. Benedict Cumberbatch will repeat his role as Sorcerer Supreme. Perhaps not by chance, Cumberbatch plays alongside Tom Holland in No Way Home. Other recurring cast members for Doctor Strange’s long-running solo sequel include Benedict Wong (Wong), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Mordo) and Rachel McAdams (Christine Palmer). It remains unclear who the main villain will be, although it was previously believed to be Nightmare.
Doctor Strange was released in 2016 and was a formidable hit considering that many weren’t too familiar with the pre-film character. Stephen Strange has appeared in several MCU installments since then, including Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. However, by the time the film hits theaters next year, it will be more than five years between the character’s solo installments. We will keep you updated as more details become available. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will currently arrive on March 25, 2022. This message comes to us through glamor.
