Bruce Campbell has provided an update on Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
At San Diego Comic-Con last year, it was announced as a part of Marvel Studios’ Phase 4 line-up that the Doctor Strange sequel would explore the multiverse. Scott Derrickson was expected to return for the sequel at the time as well, until he departed due to creative differences. Now, Spider-Man trilogy helmer Sam Raimi is directing the upcoming Doctor Strange film.
With Sam Raimi signed on to direct Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, many are expecting to see frequent collaborator Bruce Campbell in some type of role. The actor did joke on social media that he wants to play a villain in Doctor Strange 2. While Campbell isn’t officially signed on, he did provided an update on the delayed film recently while speaking with Diabolique Magazine:
“For Doctor Strange, everyone is at the mercy of what Marvel is going to do and this backlog of movies they’re going to do now. So, I think it won’t be until 2021. Marvel has to figure this all out. They have to figure out what movies they are going to do next, what movies they are going to delay, what movies they are going to sh-tcan, what movies they are going to advance and speed up…the marketplace is ever fluid.”

Here is the synopsis for Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange:
From Marvel comes Doctor Strange, the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange, whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place – a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange – armed with newly acquired magical powers – is forced to choose whether to return to his old life or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.
Directed by Scott Derrickson, Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt, Scott Adkins, Mads Mikkelsen, and Tilda Swinton.
