Due to the COVID-19 outbrack, which has closed movie theaters around the world, Disney has changed several of its productions release dates. The Doctor Strange sequel was supposed to be out on May 7, 2021. See more below:
The coronavirus quarantine has shuttered theaters around the world, and when Disney halted the release of its live-action Mulan and Marvel’s Black Widow, it created a traffic among the rest of its upcoming releases.
Today, the studio announced a new slate of debut dates over the span of the next two years, which postpones nearly all the upcoming Marvel movies, and further delays Harrison Ford’s return in Indiana Jones 5, which once upon a time was supposed to open in summer 2019.
Mulan was previously set to open last weekend, but now it has been assigned the somewhat optimistic new date of July 24, bumping another Disney movie, Dwayne Johnson’s Jungle Cruise, from that weekend to a release more than a year later, on July 30, 2021.
Unfortunately, director Scott Derrickson won’t be directing Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness. He said on Twitter:
Marvel, on the other hand, released this statement via Variety, which first reported the news on their website:
Marvel Studios and Scott Derrickson have amicably parted ways on ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ due to creative differences. We remain grateful to Scott for his contributions to the MCU.
Still according to their website, the movie will begin production in May and the filming schedule should be affected by this, as they’re already searching for a replacement.
During an interview to Brazilian entertainment website Omelete, which followed the Marvel Studios panel at Comic Con Experience (CCXP) in São Paulo earlier today, Kevin Feige said the Multiverse is the ”is the next step in the evolution of the MCU”. Take a look:
The multiverse is the next step in the evolution of the MCU, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is gonna crack it wide open in ways that will have repercussions for a Disney+ series just before it, that’s not WandaVision, and for movies just after it in a big, fun way.

Benedict works hard to keep his personal life out of the spotlight and we should respect that.
