There’s been a lot of talk about the reshoots for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and while a lot of people think this is a bad sign for the film, reshoots are a very normal part of the Marvel Studiosway of making movies. They plan on reshoots from the beginning to allow them to make the best film possible is what they say.
The Doctor Strange sequel had some extensive reshoots planed for November and December and we get a bit of clarity on that from star Benedict Cumberbatch from his conversation with Empire Magazine. “We’re in the middle of reshoots and we’re working incredibly hard to make a schedule work to realize the full potential of the film — bits that we want to do better but also bits that were just impossible to do on the day because of logistics, COVID, etc. We were so delayed in production because of that. Luckily, not during production too much. Although everything is just a little slower.”
Now reports have been saying that there’s a ton of new writing and shooting for the film, it kind of makes sense when you have something a connected as the MCU that you have to adjust on the fly to new ideas, what the other productions are doing and simple decisions to do a scene a different way when it doesn’t quite work in post. It’s unclear at this point whether the Multiverse of Madness in the title is a result of what happens in Spider-Man: No Way Home or if it will be a new problem more in line with the doctor himself and his continued research into the time stone.
Maybe it has something with Tom Holland’s contract extension?
