Stan Lee’s Once Upon A Deadpool Cameo Is Simply Heartbreaking

It’s now been one month since the news broke that Stan Lee had passed away, and with two movies featuring posthumous cameos from the late comic book creator coming out this week, fans are likely in for a bittersweet experience. We’ve already heard about the writer’s poignant appearance in the upcoming Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, but now it seems that Once Upon a Deadpool has provided a touching tribute of its own.

Though the original, R-rated cut of Deadpool 2 didn’t include Lee in person, the film did show his face in graffiti in the background of the flick’s X-Force sequence. In the PG-13 re-release, that image has been updated to include the letters “R.I.P.” in remembrance of the man.

Doctor Strange featured in the first draft of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Having teamed up in this year’s Avengers: Infinity War, Spider-Man and Doctor Strange could have found themselves sharing the screen for a second time this month, with producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller revealing that the first draft of Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse featured a cameo from the Sorcerer Supreme.

“The first draft ended with [Strange],” Lord tells Den of Geek. “It ended with him saying, ‘Okay, I have some things to tell you.’ It was the first draft, like three years ago. It ended with Doctor Strange. Literally, the last frame was Doctor Strange, going, ‘Hello.'”

The rights to Doctor Strange belong to Marvel, so Sony would have needed to seek permission for any appearance by the dimension-hopping Master of the Mystic Arts, but whether or not the idea progressed that far is unclear.

As an aside, this wouldn’t have been the first Doctor Strange link with the Spider-Man movie franchise,

Scott Derrickson to return to the helm on ‘Doctor Strange’ sequel

The subject of a ‘Doctor Strange’ sequel has been talked about ever since the first landed and even the death of Strange at the finger snapping hands of Thanos can keep the good doctor down. It has been confirmed there will be a follow-up and Scott Derrickson has signed on to return to the helm. There is no word yet that his writing partner C. Robert Cargill will be back to co-write the script.

Benedict Cumberbatch will return as Stephen Strange, the good doctor-turned-master of the mystic arts, as will Benedict Wong, who plays his right-hand man, Wong. Rachael McAdams, who played Stephen Strange’s love interest, is thought to be returning as well.

Derrickson also wrote the first, but it’s looking like he might not put pen to paper for the sequel as word is Marvel are currently searching for a new scribe.

Doctor Strange 2 officially a go, expected in May 2021

Rumours have been circulating for months, but now it is official: filmmaker Scott Derrickson has closed his deal to return to the director’s chair for Doctor Strange 2, reuniting with leading man Benedict Cumberbatch for the sequel to the Sorcerer Supreme’s 2016 solo movie.

According to THR, the search is underway for a writer to pen the script for Doctor Strange 2, with Marvel hoping to then begin production on the film int the spring of 2020 for release in May 2021.

Marvel Studios has been very quiet when it comes to its post-Avengers: Endgame plans, although there are a number of movies we know we can expect in Phase Four, beginning with next year’s Spider-Man: Far From Home.

Ryan Coogler recently closed his own deal to write and direct a sequel to this year’s smash-hit Black Panther, while The Eternals and a Black Widow solo movie are also confirmed,

Spider-man: Into The Spider-verse Almost Featured Another Popular Marvel Superhero

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is full of great and fun characters and they were all handled perfectly. But, another popular marvel superhero character almost popped up in the film.

According to producers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, there was an early draft of the script that included a surprise appearance from Doctor Strange! Lord confirmed, "The first draft ended with [Strange].”

He went on to reveal how the scene with Strange would have played out:

"It ended with him saying, 'Okay, I have some things to tell you,' It was the first draft, like three years ago. It ended with Doctor Strange. Literally, the last frame was Doctor Strange, going, 'Hello.'"

That would have been pretty awesome! After watching the movie, it’s not hard to see how Strange would have fit into the story with the whole multiverse aspect of the story. It would have also set up an interesting sequel!

How 'Doctor Strange 2' Could Expand the Marvel Mythos

The Avengers may be in the “endgame,” but the aftermath for many of the characters involved is shaping up to be just as promising. As Marvel’s post-Phase 3 plans continue to be revealed, it’s clear that the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe isn’t abandoning familiar faces. One of those familiar faces sticking around in the McU is Doctor Strange. The sorcerer, portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch, will return alongside the first film’s director Scott Derrickson.

Doctor Strange 2 Release Date Might’ve Been Confirmed

Though Marvel Studios is still keeping their cards fairly close to their chest when it comes to the content of the McU’s Phase 4, we’re slowly starting to piece together a picture of what these next few years will look like, and THR certainly helped matters when they reported that Scott Derrickson is on board to helm Doctor Strange 2.

As well as confirming that the Doctor Strange helmsman will be back for the sequel – along with stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Benedict Wong – the new piece also mentions that Marvel is planning to start production on the film in 2020, with a potential release in May 2021. And while this slot doesn’t seem set in stone just yet, fans have already picked up that the news lines up nicely with a report from several months ago saying that Disney has marked an untitled Marvel movie for release on May 7th of the same year.

The Confirmed Doctor Strange Sequel Is Almost Like a Spoiler For Avengers: Endgame

After months of wondering whether or not there would be a Doctor Strange sequel, we have pretty solid confirmation that it is, indeed, a thing. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel has finalized a deal with the director, and the search for a screenwriter is underway. Given the fact that the latest Marvel phase will end with the highly anticipated Avengers: Endgame in April 2019, the Doctor Strange sequel would effectively launch us into the fourth phase of the ever-expanding universe. This, of course, carries great weight when you consider the cliffhanger at the end of Avengers: Infinity War. Let's dig into the possible ramifications (and more sequel news!) ahead.

Benedict Cumberbatch And Benedict Wong Confirmed For Doctor Strange 2

The recent title reveal of next year’s Avengers: Endgame has made it all too clear that even in death, Doctor Strange casts a shadow on the events of the McU. What’s more, if it wasn’t obvious enough that the character won’t be staying dust for long, THR has just confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch will be coming back for Doctor Strange 2, and he’ll be bringing his old co-star Benedict Wong along with him.

The casting news was mentioned in a piece announcing the return of Doctor Strange helmsman Scott Derrickson to the series, with the Sinister director said to be reuniting with the two Benedicts and potentially Christine Palmer actress Rachael McAdams. And while none of this comes across as especially surprising, it’s still nice to know for sure after months of Cumberbatch keeping tight-lipped on his future in the franchise.

Scott Derrickson Confirmed To Return To Direct Doctor Strange 2

We’ve got some great news for all you Doctor Strange fans! Marvel Studios and Disney have officially brought Scott Derrickson back to helm the sequel.

I love what Derrickson did with the first movie and I can’t wait to see what he is planning for the sequel! Benedict Cumberbatch is set to return as Stephen Strange, and I really hope that we see Chiwetel Ejiofor return as Baron Mordo. I’m confident that Benedict Wong will be back as Wong and that we’ll see a few other familiar faces like Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer.

It’s way too early to tell what kind of story Doctor Strange 2 will tell, the studio has yet to even hire a writer. I assumed that the original screenwriter, C. Robert Cargill, would be back, but who knows.

Scott Derrickson Back To Direct Next ‘Doctor Strange’ Movie

Scott Derrickson Back To Direct Next ‘Doctor Strange’ Movie
Scott Derrickson is set to return as the director of Disney/Marvel’s Doctor Strange sequel, which has Benedict Cumberbatch reprising his role as the title character, who was last seen disintegrating into dust-like particles at the end of Avengers: Infinity War.

Stephen Strange was a brilliant but arrogant neurosurgeon who, after a career-ending accident, discovers a world of sorcery, magic and world-bending dynamics that inevitably turns him into a superhero figure.

While audiences were in shock after the events of the last Avengers film, it’s no surprise that there will be life after the next installment, Avengers: Endgame, as the McU enters into Phase 4 with planned releases for Black Panther 2, the Black Widow standalone, among others.

Doctor Strange opened in 2016 with an $85 million dollar weekend domestic box office take and went on to gross $677 million worldwide.

The sequel is slated to hit theaters in 2021.
