Deadline is reporting that The Baby-Sitters Club's Xochitl Gomez has joined the cast of Marvel's Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The second installment has Benedict Cumberbatch returning to reprise the title role with Sam Raimi taking over directing duties. Expected to return to reprise their roles from the original film are Benedict Wong and Chiwetel Ejiofor as fellow sorcerer Wong and Strange’s compatriot-turned-nemesis Karl Mordo. Elizabeth Olsen has been tapped to reprise her role as Scarlet Witch, aka Wanda Maximoff, for a storyline that Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has said will link up with her Disney Plus series WandaVision that debuts in December. Marvel had no comment and the storyline and Gomez's character are unknown at this time.
Sources have informed The Hollywood Reporter that director Scott Derrickson has finalized a deal to helm the sequel to Marvel's Doctor Strange which he originally directed and co-wrote in 2016. Benedict Cumberbatch will return as Stephen Strange, the good doctor turned master of the mystic arts, as will Benedict Wong, who played his right-hand man, Wong. Rachel McAdams, who played Stephen Strange’s love interest, is likely to return as well. A search for a writer to pen the script is underway as the plan is for the script to be out in 2019 with production starting in the spring of 2020 and in theaters by May of 2021.
