In a recent interview with Inverse, award-winning composer Danny Elfman confirmed that he has met with Sam Raim to begin work on the future Marvel Cinematic Universe film, ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘. In fact and according to Elfman himself, he has already begun to do preliminary work for the film starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
“I’m starting to do some pre-work for Doctor Strange 2 directed by Sam Raimi,” said Elfman. “Although I don’t start for a few months, there are recorded pieces of music that they need for sets.”
It will be the sixth collaboration between Elfman and Raimi, who previously worked together on ‘Darkman’ (1990), ‘A Simple Plan’ (1998), ‘Spider-Man’ (2002), ‘Spider-Man 2’ (2004) and ‘Oz the Great and Powerful ‘(2013). However, this will not be the composer’s first project for Marvel Studios, as he already worked for the studio on the 2015 film, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’.
Alongside Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange, the film will star Chiwetel Ejiofor as Barn Mordo, Benedict Wong as Wong, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff, Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer and Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez.
Michael Waldron, showrunner of the Disney + television series ‘Loki’, has been the last to review the script for the film that will hit theaters on March 25, 2022. Filming was expected to begin last May, but due the pandemic was delayed until conditions permit.
