Following 2019’s Avengers 4, the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is something of mystery.
Fans already know a Spider-Man Homecoming sequel and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 are confirmed, but now Marvel boss Feige has teased Doctor Strange 2.
According to MovieWeb, the producer said: “Certainly, we would love to tell more about the Strange story [in a sequel]. Yes. It won’t be for a while.
“Our focus is on the next six movies. Finishing the first three phases, getting Untitled Avengers out into the world [in 2019] before publicly focusing on anything else.”
Scott Derrickson, who directed last year’s Doctor Strange, may have teased he’s signed on to the sequel, with a comic book drawing of the Sorceror Supreme in difficultly posted on Twitter.
He wrote: “Me after signing every movie deal.”
Back in January, he teased what could be in store for a future outing with Cumberbatch – who cameos in Thor: Ragnarok.
The director said: “The alternate dimensions and possibilities of the multiverse that we set up with the first film already give limitless possibilities.”
Derrickson added: “What I will say is that the goal would not be to underutilise that, or to create something that was less innovative than the first Doctor Strange.
“The comics, especially the Lee/Ditko comics, were always pushing into unexpectedly weird places and storylines.
“That has continued on into the current Doctor Strange comics, which are really great. So anything’s possible with Doctor Strange, I wouldn’t rule anything out.”
