Filming begins on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Produced by Marvel Studios, the feature is a sequel to 2016’s Doctor Strange and Avengers: Endgame, and marks the 29th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong and Chiwetel Ejiofor co-star.
Sam Raimi is in the director’s chair, having replaced Scott Derrickson earlier this year; Derrickson remains involved as an executive producer.
Longcross Studios is one of the UK’s key production hubs, permanent home to the long-running BBC One hit period drama Call the Midwife. It recently hosted filming on Kenneth Branagh’s big-screen adaptation of Death on the Nile.
The demand for UK studio space is huge, and as a result there are several major expansion schemes in the pipeline as well as plans for new, purpose-built sites due to open in the next two years.
