The movie Doctor Strange: Into the Multiverse of Madness It has recently completed its first week in theaters, so so far it has been a success in theaters, since it has managed to raise more than 500 million dollars at the box office and there are no signs of its popularity diminishing; Among the possible main reasons for its success we could say that it is the return of benedict cumberbatchwho continues on his press tours for the film by Marvel Studios.
It was then, as within a recent interview with BBC Radio 1, the actor revealed that he was once in contention for another role as Marvel Studiosin the film Thor: The Dark World before finally becoming Doctor Strange: “[El papel de Doctor Strange] It happened as a muted idea after, funnily enough, another little dance I did for another character in the MCU, a very brief character,” he revealed. Cumberbatch. “I dared to say, ‘I’m very flattered to be invited to the party, but I’d rather wait for something a little juicier.'”
So we found out that Cumberbatch who was in talks to play the villain Malekith in Thor: The Dark World before he eventually dropped out of the role, as the actor was cast not as a villain, but as Doctor Strange and the rest is history, where we know that he has appeared in three of the biggest box office hits of all time with Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame Y Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Which to tell the truth, the actor made the right decision, since Doctor Strange has a pretty big future Marvel Cinematic Universe and just as the writer of the sequel, michael waldron revealed that some dark things are coming for the ex Sorcerer Supreme: “That’s the bill that’s due. As Wong says, ‘You used the Darkhold to possess your own corpse.’ Surely, there must be some consequences.”said Waldron during an interview. “It was a bit of a throwback to the old Evil Dead [de Raimi], and that final growl, or it’s like, ‘Oh my God, things went wrong at the end. Then yes. We’ll see what all that means for Stephen.”
“The Multiverse has forced a mirror in front of his face, and made him reflect on himself, which I think he refused to do. Even when he had that accident [automóvil] initial [en Doctor Strange]Instead of really thinking about who he was, he went off and became the most powerful sorcerer in the world. This is a guy who doesn’t want to go to therapy. I think now there’s been some forced self-reflection over the course of this adventure, and I think he’s probably more capable than ever of working as part of a team.” mentioned the writer of Doctor Strange: Into the Multiverse of Madness.
In addition to this, let us remember that back in 2020 a series of controversial photos emerged in which we could see him become a new version of Hombre de Hierro with the help of Tony Starkbut that, too, is already part of the story within Marvel.
