Can we expect Doctor Strange 3 to soon go into production? Well, if rumours are to be believed, Stephen Strange’s fans might be getting some good news about a new sequel. Though Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was released in May 2022, there is already a lot of speculation and anticipation regarding the production and release of Doctor Strange 3. Here’s what we know so far.

Are there going to be more Doctor Strange movies?

While there has been no official announcement about a sequel so far, fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe are quite hopeful about the prospects of another Doctor Strange movie. They are paying close attention to Benedict Cumberbatch’s interview with an Indian publication where he stated his wishes of playing the character again. During this interview, Cumberbatch also spoke about the nature of Stephen Strange, the nuances in his actions and how the Doctor’s multifacetedness awed him.

Cumberbatch also revealed that he finds it quite fascinating that his character has become such an integral part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Besides Cumberbatch, Scott Derrickson, who directed the first Doctor Strange movie in 2016, has also said that he would love to work with Marvel again.

So, given Cumberbatch and Derrickson’s interest, we can be somewhat hopeful that Doctor Strange 3 might be on the cards, especially when you also consider the cliffhanger that the second film ended on.
