The films, which were delayed by the pandemic, are joined by the exclusive Disney + television series. WandaVision will be in charge of starting Phase 4. The series that presents Wanda and Vision’s life after the events of Endgame will, in turn, serve as a precedent to the events of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. And although the recordings started in November, they have had to stop, as Elizabeth Olsen confirms.
Elizabeth Olsen premieres Scarlet Witch and Vision in just over a week. In the series, she will again play Wanda Maximoff, the powerful mutant. He will also play a significant role in the sequel to Doctor Strange. Shooting in London started a couple of months ago. But Olsen clarifies in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel that they have had to pause until further notice. The country faces a new wave of the pandemic. Besides, hospitals do not give enough, so Disney has decided to stop the recordings.
“Since the hospitals are saturated we cannot go back to the recordings until that is solved. I am safe, spending time here, and very grateful to be able to work. Disney has kept me busy during the quarantine. “
The New Covid-19 Strain
The UK faces a strain of the Coronavirus ( COVID-19) that aims to be much more contagious. The new strain is a lack of control of the situation, and the country adds around 1000 deaths a day. Other countries have already put limitations on British travelers’ entry to curb the spread of the new strain. Besides, the government has ordered stricter measures to ensure that the situation can be improved.
Although these measures do not affect television and film production, it seems that Disney has not wanted to risk it. With Doctor Stange 2 recordings on hold, Disney may have also stopped filming other titles with production in the country, such as the Little Mermaid movie. The national confinement in the United Kingdom will last until mid-February. So production is likely not to resume until then.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness opens in March 2022. Also, the studio started production earlier than expected. So, for now, there should be no fear that he would be delayed again. The Scarlet Witch and Vision series will serve as a precedent to the events of the film. Starring Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany, the series hits Disney + on January 15.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness opens on March 24, 2022.
