    Benedict Cumberbatch & Co.’s Mission Will Be To Restore The Changing World


    The actor is well-marinated in show business. Benedict has portrayed various roles including the Sorcerer Supreme in Doctor Strange. However, the pandemic has affected the world more or less equally making all stranded in the confines of their homes. However, Benedict had shot two films during the peak of the pandemic but was also affected.

    During an interview, he expressed how tough the production process of both Doctor Strange 2 and The Power Of Dog had to be delayed several times. He said, “It’s been tough. I’ll be honest with you. It’s had quite a journey, this film. But not in a kind of poor me way, just like the nature of where we’re at.”

    He continued, “To try and make a massive film like that under the constrictions of a pandemic and the delays that have ensued, partly because of The Power of the Dog, but also because of everything that was lined up and had to be pushed back from Marvel. It’s been tough for everyone. Also, incredibly enjoyable and no less enjoyable than the first one.”

    Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness will be released in theaters on 6th May 2022. Marvel has revealed what will unfold in the film. “To restore a world where everything is changing, Strange seeks help from his ally Wong, the Sorcerer Supreme, and the Avengers’ most powerful Scarlet Witch, Wanda. 

    However, “a terrible threat looms over humanity and the entire universe that no longer can be done by their power alone. Even more surprising, the greatest threat in the universe looks exactly like Doctor Strange.”
