The question of how much of The Multiverse of Madness has been reshot in the months leading up to its theatrical release has been raised repeatedly in recent months. Benedict Cumberbatch claims that the “significant” reshoots for the Doctor Strange sequel were simply to make up for time lost due to the pandemic and the absence of other actors.
Although Marvel Studios has a history of reshoots, some fans are still concerned about the quality of the sequels they’ve already seen. However, Bruce Campbell’s remark about the extensive reshoots could rekindle those fears in fans.
Tylerjb223 was able to meet Bruce Campbell at an Armed Forces Entertainment convention and ask him a series of questions, including one about shooting scenes for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
“A majority of the film was reshot extensively” in contrast to previous comments from co-stars: Bruce Campbell finally confirmed his appearance in the Doctor Strange sequel:
“The deal with Doctor Strange is interesting. A majority of the film was reshot extensively, so I have no idea what’s in there and what isn’t.”
With time, Marvel Studios’ fans have come to accept the practice of reshoots, which Ant-Man director Peyton Reed calls “liberating.” “Just impossible to do on the day” scenes were some of the scenes that Benedict Cumberbatch said were reshot for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, according to Cumberbatch.
While the reshoots have been described by Bruce Campbell as “a majority of the film” being “reshot extensively,” this description seems a little odd. If he were just another actor, it would be easy to dismiss Campbell’s friendship with director Sam Raimi. For this reason, it’s likely that Campbell shot his scenes for the Doctor Strange sequel last year, so he already has an idea of what the reshoots will look like.
Campbell may have misunderstood Reddit users or misinterpreted his own words, or he may just be making assumptions about the reshoots online based on what he has heard recently. In any case, the sequel appears to have grown significantly following Campbell’s filming of his scenes.
