We’ve seen Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange in both Thor: Ragnarok and Avengers: Infinity War, but we haven’t heard about a proper sequel. Now, Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson is teasing on Instagram that something is happening in September. “‘Not my will, but thine be done…’ See you in September,” the helmer says.
Could we finally get a Doctor Strange 2 announcement? It would make sense, since the first film grossed $677.7 million worldwide in 2016 on a budget of $165 million. $232 million of that total came from North America and $445 million from overseas.
Doctor Strange also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt, Scott Adkins, Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton.
Marvel Studios‘ Doctor Strange is the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange, whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place—a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange—armed with newly acquired magical powers—is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.
Derrickson directed the film from a script by Jon Spaihts and Derrickson & C. Robert Cargill.
