Marvel Studios is playing their cards very close to their chest when it comes to future installments in the Marvel cinematic universe, post-Avengers: Infinity War. However, recent updates have shed new light on the existence of a third Guardians of the Galaxy movie and a sequel to last summer’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home. Now, the Sorcerer Supreme himself can join the ranks of confirmed post-Infinity War movies.
Kevin Feige, president of Marvel Studios, confirmed that a sequel to Doctor Strange is definitely on the way in a chat with Cinemablend at a recent Ant-Man and the Wasp press junket. When asked about a future Doctor Strange movie, Feige said, “Sometimes it’s where do those characters pop up? [Doctor] Strange, you know, whenever we do another Strange [movie], which we will do, it will be a number of years from the first Strange, and yet he’s a very big part of Infinity War.”
It may take a while for a Doctor Strange sequel to come to fruition but knowing that he will return for a future movie opens up many a possibility as to where Avengers: Infinity War part two could go. Given the success and fan support of Doctor Strange as a movie and a character in the ever-growing MCU, this news isn’t too surprising.
