Recently, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Marvel Studios is forging ahead with 6-weeks of reshoots for Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness through the end of the year. The report has multiple sources stating that the reshoots were simply due to several actors being unavailable during principal photography. The report also says two out of the six weeks actually from the original filming schedule. Other sources state that filming for six weeks is basically like filming an entirely new movie. The report had two different takes on the reshoots to being normal and others saying it’s very odd. The report mentioned that director Sam Raimi and writer Michael Waldron would return for the reshoots, which is a good sign.
We at Knight Edge Media have heard at one time that the film originally did have Wanda Maximoff (played by Elizabeth Olsen) as the straight-up villain. While there is always someone else pulling the strings elsewhere. For the most part Doctor Strange would be attempting to stop Wanda as she travels the multiverse looking for her sons. Now the studio may be going through reshoots to ease back the straight-up villain aspect of Wanda. It will be interesting to see if the studio will change how the audience views Wanda Maximoff following her surge of fans from WandaVision.
Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness still expected to hit theaters May 6th, 2022
