First big flirt MCU with terror, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness could have been even more moderate on the scares if it hadn’t been Benedict Cumberbatch. The actor, who played some versions of the title character in the film, revealed that he even wrote some scenes for the sequel, in an attempt to make the film a little darker. “We had a slightly more watered down version at a certain stage [da produção] and I am very happy with the way it has evolved [para algo mais sombrio],” he told Prestige.
“Sam Raimi was very willing to [aceitar as sugestões de Cumberbatch] and Michael Waldron [que assina o roteiro] It encouraged me a lot to write too. We turned what was a very small combat between two characters into a very bizarre and inventive battle”, continued the actor, who also praised the final result of the film. “That’s how the [roteiro] original was described to me a long time ago, when Scott Derrickson was still working with us: Strange would find versions of himself. It was something he wanted to support me in. We could have gone even further and maybe we will in the future.”
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has raised over US$950 million of box office.
The sequel is also available for streaming on Disney+.
