Rachel ‘likely’ to return for “Doctor Strange” sequel

Rachel ‘likely’ to return for “Doctor Strange” sequel

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Scott Derrickson is set to return for the sequel of “Doctor Strange“. Rachel’s costars Benedict Cumberbatch and Benedict Wong will return as well with Rachel “likely to return as well”. Variety is also reporting the return of Derrickson with Cumerbatch, Wong and Rachel “expected to reprise” their roles. 

Scott Derrickson, who directed and co-wrote the mystical Marvel hero’s initial 2016 outing, has quietly finalized a deal to helm the new installment.

A search for a writer to pen the script is about to get underway.

Benedict Cumberbatch will return as Stephen Strange, the good doctor turned master of the mystic arts, as will Benedict Wong, who played his right-hand man, Wong. Rachel McAdams, who played Stephen Strange’s love interest, is likely to return as well.

Strange was last seen de-materializing in the $2 billion-grossing Avenger: Infinity War, where one of his lines of dialogue served as the inspiration for the title of the fourth Avengers movie, Avengers: Endgame.

Marvel has been tight-lipped about its plans for life after Endgame, which it is calling Phase Four. After all, how much can there be when half your heroes are supposed to be dead?

In any case, sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the plan is for the script to be hashed out in 2019 with an eye toward a spring 2020 production start. If all goes well, the movie would be casting its spell on audiences in May 2021.

Marvel had no comment.

For the past few weeks we have been working behind the scenes on the site and we are very excited to announced the launch of our brand new video archive. Our new archive already has over 750 videos including over 100 videos of the “Doctor Strange” coverage. Our new video archive is more user friendly and it’s mobile friendly so you are able to watch the videos on your mobile devices.

We will continue to transfer videos as time permits and our old video archive will remain online until then.

We want to share a few of our favorites from the “Doctor Strange” promotional tour: Rachel playing a game with Honest Trailers/Screen Junkies and Operation with E!, participating in a magic trick, talking about meeting the Obamas and Rachel’s adorable reaction (‘Alright, alright, alright’) when a journalist compared her to Matthew McConaughey.

“Doctor Strange” $85 Million BO Opening (US)

Congratulations to the “Doctor Strange” cast and crew, because the movie is charting a No. 1 opening of $85M at 3,882 theaters in the United States. This is a personal record for Rachel: It’s her largest opening weekend in the US, according to Box Office Mojo. Since 2009 “Sherlock Holmes” was Rachel’s best opening weekend in the US but “Doctor Strange” surpassed it with over 30 million. The movie also received an A CinemaScores according to Deadline. Variety is reporting the following story:

This time it’s Stephen Strange’s turn to dominate the multiplexes, after “Doctor Strange,” the first big-screen appearance for the Master of the Mystic Arts, was the top ticket seller this weekend with a $85 million debut. It marks the 14th straight first place opening for a Marvel film, a feat matched only by Pixar.

“Doctor Strange’s” opening trumps those of “Thor” ($65.7 million), “Captain America: The First Avenger” ($65 million), and “Ant-Man” ($57.2 million). That’s impressive given that Captain America and Thor are better known figures. Still the good doctor couldn’t quite reach the stratospheric heights of “Iron Man” ($98.6 million), “Captain America: Civil War” ($179.1 million), or “Marvel’s The Avengers” ($207.4 million). Those films benefited from having Robert Downey Jr. or featured superhero team-ups. “Doctor Strange” wasn’t cheap to make. Disney and Marvel spent $165 million to give the Sorcerer Supreme the celluloid treatment.
