To think that there might be no Doctor Strange in future Marvel productions is enough to make us all feel disappointed.

Is ‘Doctor Strange 2’ the last of Benedict Cumberbatch in MCU?
Well, it looks like Benedict Cumberbatch will not reprise his role as ‘Doctor Strange’ after ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’. According to “We Got This Covered”, Benedict’s contract expires after ‘Doctor Strange 2’ and till now, there is no confirmation about whether or not he is renewing the contract. Since Benedict has not addressed any rumours we can’t really say what the future holds for Doctor Strange. But, hopefully, Marvel will be able to convince him to stay for a few more franchises.
When will ‘Doctor Strange 2’ hit the theatres?
There has been a slight delay in the production of ‘Doctor Strange 2’ and because of this, the movie is now all scheduled to release on 5th November 2021.
In a conversation with Twitter, the director, Scott Derrickson, said that Benedict was the only one who was under a dispute over whether to reprise his role or not. This is the reason why the production was delayed as it took some time to gear him up for the sequel. Scott also mentioned that if the production would have begun on time, the visuals of the movies would have been quite different.
“Additionally, we pushed the release date for Doctor Strange five months in order to get Benedict Cumberbatch. Had we not done that, we would not have had time to get the script right or figure out how to achieve a lot of the visuals”Said Scott
What was the reason behind Benedict’s apologies to all his fans?
Just like you all, we all were hoping for Doctor Strange to make an appearance in ‘WandaVision’. However, much to our disappointment, we didn’t even get a glimpse of him. When in an interview on “Jake’s Takes”, Benedict was asked whether he knew his fans were dying to see him in ‘WandaVision’, he apologized for disappointing all his fans. He also admitted that it would have been fun to see ‘Doctor Strange’ in ‘WandaVision’ and this could have opened doors for Elizabeth Olsen being a part of ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’.
