After years of wondering whether there would be a "Doctor Strange" sequel, the guessing is finally over. The upcoming installment, titled "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness", is set to arrive in theaters this May, and it picks back up on the mayhem of "Spider-Man: No Way Home," which shows Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) cast a spell that disrupts the multiverse. The sequel also brings Strange and The Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) from "WandaVision" together to get to the bottom of what the multiverse is all about.

"Doctor Strange 2" was officially confirmed during Comic-Con in July 2019. Billed as a movie that would "play up the gothic" and "the horror," the film is part of the fourth phase of the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe. The third Marvel phase ended with the highly anticipated "Avengers: Endgame" released in April 2019. After the multiversal hijinks of "Loki" and "No Way Home," this is shaping up to be one of the most important films in phase four.

Cumberbatch told Deadline that making the "Doctor Strange" sequel was difficult due to filming delays and pandemic restrictions. "It's been tough. I'll be honest with you. It's had quite a journey, this film. But not in a kind of poor me way, just like the nature of where we're at," he said. "It's been tough for everyone. Also, incredibly enjoyable and no less enjoyable than the first one. So, I hope the results are as good, but yeah, I think it can't be underestimated."

Ahead, dig into all the exciting details for the forthcoming sequel, including the cast, release date, trailer, and everything we know about the movie's unique and mysterious villain.
