Despite heaps of rumours about cameos and even some possible leaked pre-vis images, Marvel Studios has done a great job of keeping Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' plot under wraps. The sequel wrapped production with reshoots back in September, but we may now have a better understanding of why the release date has shifted from March 2022 to May 2022. 

During an appearance on Today, the Sorcerer Supreme himself, Benedict Cumberbatch, confirmed he's gearing up to return for another round of additional photography before the year is over.

"[I'm] very excited. Sam Raimi’s at the helm, so expect extraordinary things, and yeah, we’re in the middle of making it even better," the actor says. "We’ve got some reshoots coming up in November and December, and then it comes out in May, and I guess you’ll have to wait until then."

More reshoots aren't necessarily a cause for concern, especially as COVID has caused delays in filming and possible scheduling issues. However, with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness shaping up to be one of Marvel Studios' most ambitious movies to date, it could be that some tweaks are needed so moviegoers don't find themselves too overwhelmed by this adventure.

As per usual, there's a very good chance we'll never find out what was/wasn't the product of reshoots, but we're definitely excited to see more from this one as we near that slightly later release date.

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