Spidey Tom Holland Really Wants a Team-Up Movie with Doctor Strange



After the events of Avengers: Endgame, the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now in the hands of different superheroes other than the big three of Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor. With two of the three off the board while another in space, it is up to heroes like Captain Marvel, Spider-Man, Black Panther, and Doctor Strange. With Spider-Man: Far From Home set to premiere next week, we will get to see the first step in Marvel Studios’ plans for the future.

However, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland is already making requests. He wants to see the character team up with Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange in a future project. When asked by CinemaBlend why Dr. Strange is the one Spidey should team up with, Tom Holland provided an interesting response that should excite Marvel fans.

“I am really wanting to do a team-up with Doctor Strange, because we are both New Yorkers and because I just really like the idea of a science guy teaming up with a guy who does magic; it totally contradicts everything he knows,” Tom Holland explained. “And I like the idea that there’s real science that Peter Parker talks about. And then there is Doctor Strange gibberish, where he is like ‘The time rift and the thing and the thing.’ So it is kind of fun.’”

That sounds like a fun team up, especially when it’d come to the promotional period considering how much fun Benedict Cumberbatch and Tom Holland had together on the press circuit.

However, it also seems like Marvel Studios has other plans for these two marquee heroes, as there have been reports of a sequel for Doctor Strange being in the works for over a year now.

Over last year, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige teased plans for Doctor Strange 2 while promoting Ant-Man and the Wasp.

“Sometimes, it is where do these characters pop up? [Dr] Strange, you know, whenever we do another Strange [film], which we’ll do, it’ll be a number of years from the first Strange, and yet he is a very big part of Infinity War,” explained Feige. “So it’s just a good problem to have when you have too many beloved characters that people want to see more of, while keeping to our core belief that we need to keep exploring nuance and doing different types of things.”

And maybe we will get a glimpse of what the future holds for the MCU when Spider-Man: Far From Home premieres on July 2.

Doctor Strange 2 Reportedly Casting New Chinese-America Character




After the events of Avengers: Endgame, fans are eager to see what is next for the franchise, and especially when it comes to the Master of Mystic Arts. There also have been rumblings that a sequel to Doctor Strange has been in the works ever since the film came out in October 2016. However, no official announcement has hit.

Marvel Studios is getting ready to unveil more about their plans about future movies after the premiere of Spider-Man: Far From Home next week. And we might finally get some official update on Doctor Strange 2. Recently, a new casting breakdown indicates that the movie will begin production in early 2020. And they are looking for a major new cast member joining the franchise.

According to Comicbook, a new casting breakdown for an untitled Marvel Studios film indicates that production will take place sometime between January and May 2020. And that they are casting for a new character named Will as described thusly:

“Mid-20s, a Chinese-American (must be able to do a standard America accent).”

And that’s it. That is the whole breakdown.

A report from Discussing Film also claims the breakdown is from Doctor Strange 2, given the film’s production calendar and their own reports on that movie’s start date.

Of course, speculation is still running wild on who this new character could be, with the specific ethnicity giving way to huge fan theories on social media.

Director Scott Derrickson will return to helm Doctor Strange 2, as some reports from late 2018 revealed he had finalized his deal with Marvel Studios. Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his role as Dr. Stephen Strange, the disgraced surgeon turned Sorcerer Supreme. The character last appeared in Endgame, when he helped the Avengers fulfill his vision to defeat Thanos and save the universe.

Still, it is unclear if Doctor Strange 2 will continue to expand the Marvel Cinematic Universe by introducing new characters, or if it’ll feature a team-up with an already established hero. Recently, Spider-Man actor Tom Holland also said that he would like to pair with Benedict Cumberbatch for another movie after their interactions in Avengers: Infinity War.

At the moment, it’s still unknown when Doctor Strange 2 will have its release date. And Marvel Studios has yet to officially announce the sequel is actually beginning filming in January 2020. In the meantime, we are heading to see Spider-Man: Far From Home in theaters on July 2. Stay tuned!

“Doctor Strange 2” Reportedly Set For 2020 Release in Place of “The Eternals”




Though it’s unofficial, it has been long thought that Black Widow and The Eternals would be two properties filling the release dates that Marvel Studios currently has locked down for next year. However, an interesting new report claims that the sequel of Doctor Strange could sneak into the November 6th, 2020 date, which most analysts were suggested would go to the Chloe Zhao-directed Eternals.

According to a report from Deadline at CinemaCon, when it comes to the two 2020 release dates, “rumors have been that it is Black Widow standalone film and Doctor Strange 2.” This would be some of the earliest reports of this sequel’s release date, and it is totally possible – especially after considering Benedict Wong was under the assumption that the production would begin filming this year.

It also should be noted that Deadline reports directly contradict the thoughts of other trade publications who previously claimed the Benedict Cumberbatch-starring follow-up would film in 2020 for the 2021 release. Since Marvel Studios has already started casting major roles in The Eternals – with Hollywood A-listed actress Angelina Jolie reportedly set to join the production in a lead role – it is unlikely they would postpone the movie much longer.

Currently, the production house is sitting on three release dates in 2021, including February 12, May 7, and November 5.

Meanwhile, horror maestro Scott Derrickson is reportedly set to return to the director’s chair for Doctor Strange 2.

And while it’s even far too early to know what the film plot will look like, Derrickson himself has hinted that he wants to involve the long-time Strange nemesis Nightmare in the movie in some shape, way, or form.

“Possibly Nightmare, but he is a tricky villain to get right,” wrote Derrickson. “And you cannot tell the story of Doctor Strange w/out eventually dealing w/Clea.”

“[Marvel Studios head] Kevin [Feige] made a very cogent case,” Derrickson continued. “The trouble starting with Nightmare is getting across the idea of the Dream Dimension as another dimension. The film was challenging enough. It is already an exposition-heavy movie. Dormammu made the most sense. And he’s the most present villain in the comics.”

Captain Marvel is now in theaters. Other upcoming MCU films include Avengers: Endgame on April 26 and Spider-Man: Far From Home on July 7.

“Avengers: Endgame” Theory: What if Doctor Strange Was Wrong About the Future?




Still, it is one of the most quotable and “memeable” moments from Avengers: Infinity War. Benedict Cumberbatch played as Doctor Strange. Alongside the Avengers, he used the Time Stone to go ahead in time and view 14,000,605 future scenarios in the battle with Thanos. And when Strange “comes back,” and informs the group he’s with on Titan. From there, they win, in only one of the future scenarios he has viewed. We are not Vegas bookies by any means, but something tells us that a 1 out of 14 million chance of winning does not return that great of odds.

But what if he is wrong, somehow?

Yes, just if – what if – there happens to be more than one winning chance? After all, there could have been, indeed, several winning futures, except it would clarify a grim fate for the Master of the Mystic Arts.

We were theorizing that yes, there’re more winning futures. But unfortunately, Doctor Strange is unable to see them because somewhere, somehow, he dies.

Let’s think back to Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange (2016).

The final scene between Strange alongside the Ancient One’s Tilda Swinton at the hospital is one of the biggest pieces of supporting evidence. When the Ancient One’s astral projection leaves her body, Strange follows suit and chases his mentor to a balcony.

There, the Ancient One reveals about her access to the Dark Dimension and the Time Stone. She’s able to go forward in time; however, for any reason, she was never able to look past the moment in time they are currently experiencing. The Ancient One realizes that she has never been able to look past the moment because that is when her life ends, which seemingly makes the character more at peace with her own death.

With the same logic, it is entirely possible more winning futures exist for the Avengers as well as the Guardians. The thing is, Doctor Strange was just unable to see them as he died before the good guys won.

Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame stars Robert Downey Jr./Iron Man, Chris Evan/Captain America, Scarlett Johansson/Black Widow, Josh Brolin/Thanos, Chris Hemsworth/Thor, Brie Larson/Captain Marvel, Jeremy Renner/Hawkeye, Danai Gurira/Okoye, Mark Ruffalo/Hulk, Karen Gillan/Nebula, Paul Rudd/Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly/The Wasp, Don Cheadle/War Machine, and Bradley Cooper as Rocket Raccoon.

So, do you think we are onto something with this theory? Sound off in the comments below!

Avengers: Endgame comes in theaters on April 26. Other upcoming Marvel Cinematic Universe films include Captain Marvel on March 8, and Spider-Man: Far From Home on July this year.
