Reshoots have become the norm for Hollywood blockbusters, and for Marvel Studios, additional photography is scheduled before cameras even start rolling. Why? Well, their creative approach involves knowing that they'll want to tweak things in post-production, but that didn't stop Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness from making headlines recently. 

It's been reported that the movie will undergo at least six weeks of shooting, six days a week in Los Angeles. That sounds like a lot of extra filming, but star Benedict Cumberbatch has now elaborated on the reasons the cast and crew are returning to the Sorcerer Supreme's world for such a lengthy stint. 

"We're working incredibly hard to make a schedule work to realise 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.," the actor told Empire Magazine (via

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to be released on May 6, 2022.
