Today at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, Marvel Studios took to the stage in Hall H to reveal the upcoming movies and TV shows from the studio - including the next chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and what's planned for Disney+. I wasn't even there, and I screamed. But worry not, because Stephen Strange aka Doctor Strange is here to slay!

Arguably one of the most powerful Marvel superheroes, Doctor Strange is returning with more endless impossibilities. With so much comic book material to source, Marvel plans to swerve Doctor Strange 2 into a darker direction. Right now, however, all we know cast-wise is Cumberbatch and Olsen. It will also feature Scarlet Witch, surprisingly, as well as tying into her Disney+ series WandaVision.

Entitled Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the film is scheduled for release on May 7, 2021, and has Scott Derrickson back on board as director. Derrickson's background is in horror having helmed fright fests like The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Sinister, but his Doctor Strange movie was far more restrained in that regard.

"I'm really excited to be at the dawn of the project", said Cumberbatch. It will dip into the gothic and horror.

Black Widow - starring Scarlett Johansson and Florence Pugh - is the first film of the phase that we will actually be able to watch, with a release date of 1 May 2020. There was no mention of who the big bad might be, but the rumor mill says Nightmare is a possibility.

If Scarlet Witch is involved, we're probably looking at a situation where a Multiverse threat draws unusual into other dimensions to protect his own timeline, with Witch's magic proving invaluable on that mission. Fellow Doctor Strange fans, we only have to wait until 2021.
