How Doctor Strange 2’s postponement impacted Spider-Man: No Way Home

The role of the Sorcerer Supreme was reversed at the same time as the releases of two films.

The Marvel films being intimately linked to each other, each production is more or less dependent on what will do the next. So in an interview with Variety, Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers – the writers of Spider-Man: No Way Home – explained how they had to revisit their plans for the role he wanted to give Doctor Strange in the story, following the postponement of the Multiverse of Madness. Because originally, Doctor Strange 2 was to be released in theaters in the summer of 2021, before the third installment of the spider-man saga …

Spider-Man: No Way Home becomes 20th biggest hit of all time

Obviously, everything has been turned upside down by COVID. While it is rather the base of the chaos of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the Sorcerer Supreme was Initially to be the voice of reason of Peter Parker:

“We were working at that time on things that were going on in Doctor Strange 2, trying to incorporate them into our script. When we started to write Spider-Man: No Way Home, Stephen Strange knows, having experienced it, the danger of playing with the order of things … Suddenly, we had to modify everything and we changed him so that he is this person who does not know much – something in the multiverse. But that makes it all the more frightening in the end. It is the fear of the unknown. Either way, he was originally the voice of reason saying, “You can’t play with the fate of an individual” – and Peter Parker being naive enough to wonder, “Why? not ? Why can’t we save these people? “

History does not say what would have happened to Spider-Man: No Way Home, without COVID and without this postponement. But the film is now the most profitable “ever” from the Sony studio.
