Benedict Cumberbatch made multiple appearances in other Marvel movies ever since his debut in Doctor Strange (2016).
This movie will be a sequel to the first edition of Doctor Strange. Well, it’s pretty obvio!
Marvel fans are overly excited for this movie for several reasons, as it will introduce a never-seen-before ‘psychedelic’ addition to the MCU.
Without qualms, we say that this movie is Marvel’s first horror film. With director Scott Derrickson, maker of Sinister, the movie will be a treat to watch with his renowned horror skillset.
A hint at the madness is the villain, Nightmare, described as dark and fascinatingly crazy with unprecedented superpowers, making him one of the best MCU villains.
He is the ruler of the dream dimension and lives off of human fears.
It will be exciting to watch our favourite Doctor Strange defeat him.

- Tom Hiddleston’s Loki series can put some limelight on a weird connection with Doctor Strange’s world. Well, there’s a possibility given that Loki gets hold of Tesseract and tries to change the Time Variance when Doctor Strange holds out to be the Time Stone’s guardian.
