Marvel Studios is back with the sequel to the 2016 movie, Dr. Strange, starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Directed by Scott Derrickson, the sequel is said to star Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen in the lead roles. The movie is expected to release on November 5, 2021.
The first part of the movie narrates the story of an affluent, celebrated, and arrogant neurosurgeon, Dr. Strange. Strange meets with an accident leaving him, unable to operate. Strange meets a crippled Jonathan Pangborn, who had mysteriously overcome his impairment. Pangborn suggests Strange to go to Kamar-Taj, where he meets Mordo, a sorcerer.
Mordo takes him to The Ancient One, who gives Strange a demonstration of her immense power. She then shows him the astral plane and other dimensions and reluctantly agrees to train Strange, despite his arrogant nature. Strange is seen to be trained in the upcoming days by the Ancient One and Mordo. Strange visits the library often and comes to know about how the ‘Sanctums’ that protect our Earth.
Strange comes to know that there are 3 Sanctums located in New York City, London, and Hong Kong, which are directly accessible from Kamar-Taj. And that, the primary task of the sorcerers is to protect those Sanctums. In the library, Strange secretly reads the text from which Kaecilius stole pages and comes to know about the supernatural Eye of Agamotto, which could be used to bend time.
Destroying the sanctum of London, Kaecilius and The zealots attack the New York Sanctum. But Strange holds them off with the help of the Cloak of Levitation but is critically injured during the conflict. After teleporting himself back to the hospital, Strange is saved by Palmer. Unfolding a series of mysterious events, Dormammu finally gives in to Strange’s demand. The movie ends with Mordo renouncing his career as a sorcerer and Strange returning ‘The Eye’ to Kamar-Taj.
Though no plot has been heard of yet, maybe in the upcoming movie, we will Strange helping Thor, to find his father, Odin. Also, we can hope a see a darker side of Mordo, who steals Pangborn’s mystical energy that he uses to walk.
