Due to the Covid-19 pandemic halting the production and shooting of a lot of films and TV shows last year, Marvel blessed fans with a barrage of releases lined up for this year! One of them being the Doctor Strange sequel, Doctor Strange 2. The first part, simply titled ‘Doctor Strange’, was released back in 2016, on November 4th. It did extremely well and topped the charts in many countries. It received 89% on Rotten Tomatoes and a score of 7.5/10 on IMDb.
Doctor Strange follows the life of a neurosurgeon named Stephen Strange who suddenly loses the ability to use his hands due to being in a car crash. In order to regain usage of his hands, he decides to go and meet a sorcerer named Mordo. Mordo takes him to a lady known as ‘the Ancient One’ who reluctantly agrees to help and train Stephen Strange. It is based on the comic by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
Benedict Cumberbatch played his part of Dr. Strange with perfection as usual. The film was directed by Scott Derrickson and produced by Kevin Feige.

It is set to release on 17th December 2021.
