Quite a few Hollywood productions have been delayed due to current global events, but it looks as though Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be moving ahead as planned. At least for now. The situation is fluid and it’s hard to know when the movie business will return to normal. But the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe offering isn’t scheduled to begin filming for a few months, which could help keep the sequel on track.
According to a new report detailing some of the challenges the industry is facing as a result of delayed productions, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to begin filming in June. When last we heard, Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, The Evil Dead) was being eyed for the director’s chair. Scott Derrickson, who directed the first movie based on the Marvel Comics character, had been tapped to return, but he departed over creative differences. Derrickson is set to remain on board as a producer. Michael Waldron, who is the head writer on the Disney+ Loki series, was recently hired to pen the screenplay.
