DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS Star Benedict Cumberbatch Explains Reason For Latest Reshoots

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness star Benedict Cumberbatch has addressed the reason for another round of reshoots, saying that they're working to "realise the full potential of the film."

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 ComicBook.com). 

"We were so delayed in production, because of that," Cumberbatch said of the pandemic. "Luckily, not during production too much. Although everything is just a little slower."

Considering the amount of rumours out there about some mind-bending cameos in the Doctor Strange sequel, we're not surprised that there were issues getting everyone on set during principal photography. However, since the Multiverse is such a huge concept, it's no bad thing Marvel Studios is making sure the story is handled in a way that does it justice. 

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