Doctor Strange 2, or to use its full title, Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, is coming out in 2021.
The movie’s already lost its writer and director in Scott Derrickson, but it may have kept someone else on-board.
It sounds like the sequel to Doctor Strange will see Chiwetel Ejiofor return as Baron Mordo.
However, it also seems as though he’s going to have a much bigger part to play in Doctor Strange 2.
It’s being reported by The Illuminerdy that Baron Mordo is going to be the film’s main villain.
Now, they claim that they’ve been told this by their sources, however, there’s another factor that proves this to be true.
That factor is Doctor Strange 2’s plot synopsis, which teased the return of an old friend.
The film’s plot synopsis states the following:
After the events of Avengers: Endgame, Dr. Stephen Strange continues his research on the Time Stone. But an old friend turned enemy seeks to destroy every sorcerer on Earth, messing with Strange’s plan and also causing him to unleash an unspeakable evil.
Baron Mordo will return in Doctor Strange 2
Now, if you remember back to the very end of Doctor Strange, there’s a post-credits scene in which Ejiofor’s Mordo claims there are too many sorcerers in the world.
His exact words were, “I see now what’s wrong with the world: too many sorcerers.”
This has me thinking that Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness is going to see Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange go round the world trying to stop Mordo from ridding sorcerers of their magic.
However, the plot synopsis teases that this “old friend” (obviously Mordo) is going to “unleash an unspeakable evil”.
That’s the bigger question here. Who or what is this unspeakable evil.
It sounds so bad that it’s almost not worth talking about (my little joke).
Sounds like Mordo is going to unleash Hell
Here’s what The Illuminerdy had to say about Baron Mordo’s return in Doctor Strange 2:
The Illuminerdi has seen a breakdown of the Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness character list. While it seems to confirm that the parts we believe to be Clea and Brother Voodoo as still open (although Murphy’s Multiverse suggests that Emily Blunt might have met Marvel for the former role), it also quietly confirms the return of Mordo into the MCU. In fact, Chiwetel Ejiofor is locked for an appearance in the film. He’s also one of the five “major” characters currently set for the sequel, meaning he’ll be at the core of the story.
