The media specialized in cinema and series we give a lot of the news about re-filming, a very common practice in Hollywood to change endings, hit plots, or add scenes. Not for nothing is the American is the most powerful commercial film industry. Now it's the turn of 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness'.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the sequel to 'Doctor Strange (Doctor Strange)', directed by Sam Raimi and starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen, will face "significant" reshoots to add new scenes. Moving from the UK to Los Angeles, the Marvel Studios production will return to filming for at least six weeks, with six days per week.

A whole sprint in which Raimi will direct new footage based on material already being written by Michael Waldron, the film's screenwriter. Cumberbatch will be part of the process, but it is not known which other actors will be in it. The actor spoke about the reshoots this Thursday on the Jimmy Kimmel program, assuring that he knows little about its content. "Like everything with Marvel, it comes to you fresh every morning. It's very exciting, and the movie looks like it will be something special." Olsen called this summer "Marvel's scariest movie." With Sam Raimi directing, that phrase gives us chills.

Various sources in the article differ on how serious the matter is. Some say they've seen bigger reshoots in other Marvel Studios productions, while others think it's a long time to shoot, the equivalent of almost another movie. In any case, second chances on the set are a common practice in Marvel, and it has happened in 'Spider-Man: No Way Home', in which Stephen Strange will have a very important role, and 'Moon Knight', the starring series by Oscar Isaac to be seen on(Disney PlusDisney + in 2022.

Apparently the original recording of 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' was delayed up to two weeks due to issues of agendas of the actors and the anti-COVID measures imposed by the British government.


The reason for the delays?

Interestingly, Disney recently announced that it was delaying all the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that it has planned for next year. The first on the list that moved on the calendar was precise 'Doctor Strange 2', which ran from March 25 to May 6. That unleashed a domino effect with each Marvel movie taking the place of the next: 'Thor: Love and Thunder' ran from May 6 to July 8, 'Black Panther: Wakanda Forever' from July 8 to July 11. November ... and so on.


Could it be that it was an announcement made knowing that the new 'Doctor Strange' needed some time? Keep in mind that the MCU is becoming more and more complex: now you have to juggle with the Disney + movies and series and make sure that they all go in the same direction and do not contradict each other. The job ahead of Kevin Feige and his people is titanic. COVID, which makes filming more expensive and difficult with its measures and risks, does not help.
