The future of the MCU, past 2019’s Avengers 4 is a mystery, and while we know that Spider-Man: Homecoming’s sequel and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 are in the pipeline, now Marvel boss Kevin Feige has given us a tease of Doctor Strange 2.
According to MovieWeb, the producer stated: “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.”
The previous film’s director, Scott Derrickson, may have teased that he has signed on to director Doctor Strange 2, by posted a comic book drawing of the Sorcerer Supreme on Twitter with the caption: “Me after signing every movie deal.”

In January, Derrickson teased what could be in store for the future of Benedict Cumberbatch’s character – who cameos in the latest Thor movie.
The director said: “The alternate dimensions and possibilities of the multiverse that we set up with the first film already give limitless possibilities. […] 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.”
