Marvel Studios: Assembled's Doctor Strange 2 Episode Gets Release Date
Marvel Studios will release Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness on Disney+ later this week and fans are definitely excited to see the film again. The Doctor Strange sequel has already made over $900 million at the global box office and holds the title of the highest grossing film of the year. Since the launch of Disney+, Marvel Studios has created a series called Marvel Studios: Assembled that shows off the making of the projects that have been released since it's inception. Now, we finally know when the episode for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be released.
Disney+ has officially released their release schedule for July and it reveals that the Marvel Studios: Assembled episode for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be released on July, 1st 2022. The episode will show us a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film as well as some new looks at the sequel.
Michael Waldron, who wrote both Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Loki, recently revealed the big problem with Marvel Studios' use of the multiverse. The scribe thinks we should proceed with the multiverse very cautiously. During a previous discussion with SFX Magazine, the Loki and Doctor Strange writer scribe detailed how Marvel Studios use of the multiverse could become a double-edged sword.
"The danger is you can expand your scope too wide, and you can actually reduce the stakes if you don't make it personal as you go bigger and wider. But the opportunity in the multiverse is to have characters confront literal 'What ifs?' and alternate versions of themselves and perhaps others in their lives. It's an interesting way to hold up a mirror to characters," Waldron said. "In every way, it shapes the emotional heart of the story. It has to. The multiverse isn't just a MacGuffin where we're like, 'Okay, this is just a kitschy thing that we're playing with in this movie.' If you're faced with alternate realities and with alternate versions of yourself that has to become the emotional heart, exploring who you might be if you were a different version of yourself, if you made other choices, the right choices or the wrong choices. It's complex stuff, emotionally, and that's exactly why it's so thrilling and so great for a cast as dramatically talented as this one."
Marvel Studios describes Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness as follows: "To restore a world where everything is changing, Strange seeks help from his ally Wong, the Sorcerer Supreme, and the Avengers' most powerful Scarlet Witch, Wanda. But a terrible threat looms over humanity and the entire universe that no longer can be done by their power alone. Even more surprising, the greatest threat in the universe looks exactly like Doctor Strange."
The film is directed by the legendary Sam Rami and will star Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Benedict Wong as Wong, Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff/ Scarlet Witch, Patrick Stewart as Professor Charles Xavier, Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to hit Disney+ on June 22nd, 2022!
