Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch is a true star in every way. Now Marvel movies are known for their own persona and auro but it is high time that we all agree to the fact that Doctor Strange is what it is because of Benedict Cumberbatch. Keeping this in mind, the makers have decided to appreciate with a raise of 7.5 million pounds for the sequel to the superhero movie.
Doctor Strange 2 is scheduled to release in 2021
The shooting of the sequel to the superhero movie, Doctor Strange is scheduled for next spring and will take as long as six months. The 42-year-old British star is in line for a 5 million pounds increase from Disney on the pay packet he received for the original in 2016, reports mirror.co.uk.
But it could mean that he might not have time to fit in filming a fifth series for the hit show based on legendary detective Sherlock Holmes.
"Benedict has become a huge player in the Marvel universe. But the nature of the shoot for the sequel means we're looking at 2020 for the next time we see the sleuth in a full series - if it happens at all," a source revealed.
Cumberbatch first played the part in the Scott Derickson-directed Doctor Strange in 2016 and later appeared briefly in Thor: Ragnarok, which released last year. Doctor Strange was a pivotal character in Infinity War and he will play the part again in the untitled Avengers 4, which is due to release in 2019.
