While this may seem like a given, Doctor Strange 2 has not been confirmed. But now, it is now about as official as it can get.
Speaking with Cinema Blend, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige finally gave us some news regarding Doctor Strange 2. Feige said:
[Doctor] Strange, you know, whenever we do another Strange one, which we will do, it will be a number of years from the first Strange, and yet he’s a very big part of Infinity War.
This is a big moment because the only film that was confirmed past Avengers 4 has been Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. This doesn’t give us a date, but it at least tells us the film is planned to happen. This one seemed like one of the safest bets, but at least we know it’s real now.
As to the future balancing sequels and new films, Feige said:
It’s one of the reasons we’ve expanded to three films a year, is so that we could do the sequels to films that people have responded to – because we love to make continuing stories with characters people have responded to – but also keep doing the stuff that nobody’s ever heard of, and people go, ‘Why are you doing that?’ That’s fun. And that’s what Phase One was built on, Phase Two was built on, Phase Three was built on, is having that…
Whenever we announce the next year, two years, three years, five years, whatever we’re going to announce, there will be plenty of those that, maybe people in the know like yourself will know what they are, but the world at large will go, ‘What is it? Why are they doing that?’ That’s exciting, for sure.
Don’t think things are ending with Avengers 4, folks. It sounds like there is a lot more coming in our future.
