Fans can expect Earth’s mightiest wizard to return for a sequel as early as 2021, according to a new report.

The Hollywood Reporter claims that both Benedict Cumberbatch, who portrays Doctor Strange in the MCU, and Scott Derrickson, director of the first Doctor Strange movie, to return for a sequel. Marvel is reportedly searching for a writer to pen a script.

Additionally, many of the first film’s biggest actors, including Benedict Wong and Rachel McAdams, are said to be back as well.

With news that there will be a Doctor Strange sequel, it’s safe to assume that the character will be back by the time next year’s Avengers: Endgame ends. In Avengers: Infinity War, Doctor Strange was seen turning to dust following Thanos’ snap.

If all goes according to plan, Marvel will start production for the sequel in 2020 and aim for a release by early 2021. The film will fall into Phase 4 of the MCU, which may also include Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Black Widow, The Eternals, Shang-Chi, and Black Panther 2.

Next up on Marvel’s docket is Captain Marvel (March 8, 2019), Avengers: Endgame (April 26, 2019), and Spider-Man: Far From Home (July 5, 2019).
