Benedict Cumberbatch on Doctor Strange 3

Reported by The New Indian Express, Doctor Strange actor Benedict Cumberbatch shared his thoughts on the possibility of Doctor Strange 3:

“I hope so. I would love to do another one. Doctor Strange is such a complex character and it feels like there is so much more to explore with him. He is such a brilliant character and I’m still having a wild time playing him.”

Extra TV, via The Direct, also touched on the post-credit scene with Clea and how it will directly lineup the events of another sequel:

“I really can’t wait to see what the fan reaction is to this and where it takes Strange, and who he is by the end of the film. But I think it sets him up for a really exciting future.”

Marvel fans have their own ideas for Doctor Strange 3

Fans are quite divisive on what they want for the sequel, with some stating that they want more chaotic music battles and others wanting to see the return of Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson:

Will Clea the Sorceress be a part of Doctor Strange 3

It’s fairly safe to say that Charlize Theron’s Clea the Sorceress will be a part of Doctor Strange’s future, but will we have to wait until Doctor Strange 3?

It’s possible that Doctor Strange and Clea’s mission to stop the incursion together may be resolved in another film altogether before the sequel gets released.

However, considering how large a role Clea plays in the comics alongside Stephen Strange, it would make sense for the character to be an integral part of the story in Doctor Strange 3.
