Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is undergoing reshoots, and Benedict Cumberbatch explains why. Principal creation for the upcoming Sam Raimi-coordinated MCU film has been wrapped up for some time now. Despite some delays and difficulties due to the coronavirus pandemic, creation continued. In any case, now, the cast and team are back on set for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ reshoots, which some fans see as a cause for concern.
In any case, that’s not the case according to Cumberbatch. In another interview with Empire Magazine (through Doctor Strange 2 Updates), the actor uncovered why precisely their back on the set and doing reshoots for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Incidentally, there are two specific scenes that they are working on, and most of them are because of logistical issues. Peruse his full comments beneath:
“We’re in reshoots and we’re working incredibly difficult to make a schedule work to understand the maximum capacity of the film – bits that we want to improve yet in addition bits that were just impossible to do on the day because of logistics, COVID, and so forth We were so deferred underway because of that. Fortunately, not during creation too much. Despite the fact that everything is just a little slower.”
Considering the filming circumstances for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse, it’s even more sensical that they’re doing reshoots. As Cumberbatch referenced, a significant part of the issue that they’re trying to address through extra work stemmed from logistical issues. More than the part where he says that they’re trying to develop a key scene, his revelati0n about being not able to do a specific piece because they couldn’t do it in one day is seriously interesting. It’s possible that it’s because of actor or location accessibility. Assuming it’s the former, then, at that point, the sequel may be bringing in some previously unverified players, which is always exciting in the MCU.
