Ever since WandaVision ended on the note that Wanda can still become the villain she was meant to be as she tears up the multiverse, MCU fans have been eager to find out what she’s going to do next. As the Disney + series has been mostly red herrings when it comes to the multiverse, all hopes are in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to properly establish the same in MCU Phase IV. Filming for the film is currently underway and recently one of the film’s antagonists, namely Chiwetel Ejiofor, said he started filming his scenes in the sequel.
Last year in June, Chiwetel Ejiofor confirmed that rumors of the return of her character, Karl Mordo, to Multiverse of Madness are indeed true and certain that production will begin soon.
“We hope to start very soon, that’s what I can tell you. So, you know, ASAP. We’re all very excited to start and start to crack. I can’t wait, ”he had said.
Filming for Doctor Strange 2 began in November 2020 and appears to be going full steam ahead as Ejiofor recently shared on the BBC’s The One Show that he was shooting for the film in London.
“I’m shooting Doctor Strange.” It’s very exciting and I’m looking forward to it. I am in an unknown place at the moment. “
The last time we saw Mordo, he had left the Masters of the Mystic Arts after learning that the Ancient One had drawn his powers from the Dark Dimension. He had vowed to restore the balance by tracking down all the wizards and stripping them of their powers. By the end of Doctor Strange , he had managed to corner Jonathan Pangborn and stole all of his powers, reverting him to his previous state of inability to walk.
While the Doctor Strange post-credit scene had confirmed its return to the sequel, a lot has changed since Doctor Strange 2 was announced in 2019 and teased as the MCU’s first horror film. The film was originally scheduled to be directed by director Scott Derrickson and had a summer 2021 release date. Then the pandemic struck and not only was the film’s release date pushed back several times, but Derrickson also left the project. He was then replaced by Sam Raimi and the film is now slated for release in 2022.
Ejiofor had previously shared with ComicBook.com that he is excited to be working with Sam Raimi and can’t wait to be there.
“He’s coming,” Ejiofor said. “I’m very, very excited about this. Obviously we’ve been kind of cut off because the whole world has been in the pandemic, but hopefully we’re back on track and will continue pretty soon, so I’m very excited about it. “
While the Doctor Strange 2 story is still under tight wraps, given the WandaVision cliffhanger ended, the Sorceror Supreme is expected to be busy dealing with the chaos Wanda will unleash as she tears up multiple universe in search of his sons. The news comes to us via BBC The One Show .
