While plot details remain under wraps, we do know that Doctor Strange 2 will see the return of Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme along with Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlett Witch. Rachel McAdams will not return.

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently let us know the movie will be “legitimately scary.”

Feige told the NYFA: “Multiverse of Madness is the greatest title we’ve ever come up with, by the way, which is one thing that’s exciting about it. I wouldn’t necessarily say that’s a horror film, but … it’ll be a big MCU film with scary sequences in itI mean, there are horrifying sequences in Raiders that I as a little kid would [cover my eyes] when their faces melted. Or Temple of Doom, of course, or Gremlins, or Poltergeist. These are the movies that invented the PG-13 rating, by the way. They were PG and then they were like, ‘We need another [rating].’ But that’s fun. It’s fun to be scared in that way, and not a horrific, torturous way, but a way that is legitimately scary … but scary in the service of an exhilarating emotion.”
