Composer Danny Elfman has confirmed to Inverse that he’ll be reuniting with Sam Raimi for Marvel’s Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness. The pair worked together on the original Spider-Man trilogy and Elfman isn’t a stranger to the MCU scoring Avengers: Age of Ultron.
ELFMAN: “I am starting to do bits of pre-work for Doctor Strange 2 that Sam Raimi’s directing. Even though I don’t start it for some months, there’s bits of recorded music they need for the sets.”
Raimi took over directing duties from Scott Derrickson after he exited over creative differences.
Benedict Cumberbatch will be appearing in Spider-Man 3 and in all likelihood we will see Tom Holland’s Peter Parker show up in the Doctor Strange sequel.
The sequel will also co-star Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff and there has been confirmation from Marvel that the series WandaVision connects to it.
It was confirmed in December that America Chavez will be played by Xochitl Gomez.
The Ronin was able to previously confirm the sequel’s production team will also include cinematographer John Mathieson (Logan, X-Men: First Class) and production designer Charles Wood (Black Widow, Avengers: Endgame).
Filming is underway at Longcross Studios in Surrey, England.
