One interesting new report suggests, however, that Doctor Strange 2 release date could be November 6, 2020 date, which most analysts were suggested would go to the Chloe Zhao-directed Eternals.

Though unofficial, it’s been long thought that Black Widow and The Eternals would be the two properties that fill the release dates Marvel Studios currently has locked down for 2020.

Rumours About Doctor Strange 2 to Hit Theaters in 2020

Mentioned in a CinemaCon report from Deadline, the trade reports that when it comes to the two 2020 release dates, “rumors have been that it’s Black Widow standalone movie and Doctor Strange 2.” This would be some of the earliest reporting of the Doctor Strange 2 release date, and it’s completely possible — especially after considering Benedict Wong was previously under the assumption the production began filming this year.

It should be noted that the Deadline reports directly contradict the thoughts of other trade publications who previously reported the Benedict Cumberbatch-starring follow-up would film in 2020 for release in 2021. Since Marvel Studios has already begun casting major roles in The Eternals — with Hollywood A-lister Angelina Jolie reportedly set to join the production in a lead role — it’s unlikely they’d postpone that movie much longer.

The production house is currently sitting on three release dates in 2021, including February 12th, May 7th, and November 5th.

Scott Derrickson probably to return as the director of Doctor Strange

Horror maestro Scott Derrickson is reportedly set to return to the director’s chair for Doctor Strange 2 and while it’s far too early to know what the film’s plot will look like, Derrickson himself has previously hinted that he wants to involve long-time Strange nemesis Nightmare in the film in some shape, way, or form.

“Possibly Nightmare, but he’s a tricky villain to get right,” Derrickson wrote. “And you can’t tell the story of Doctor Strange w/out eventually dealing w/Clea.”

“Kevin [Feige] made a very cogent case,” he continued. “The trouble with starting with Nightmare is getting across the idea of the Dream Dimension as another dimension. The movie was challenging enough. It’s already an exposition-heavy movie… Dormammu made the most sense. And he is the most present villain in the comics.”

Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilising a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
