A great season! Almost five months after the last Marvel Cinematic Universe film hit the big screen, this summer will release two highly anticipated sequels: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Thor: Love and Thunder — and that’s just the tipping point for movie releases in 2022.
As summer is knocking on our doorstep, it’s ready to be filled with fast-paced action movies, sweet romances, hard-hitting adaptations, and so much more.
The second strange doctor the film kicks off the summer season, reuniting Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams) and Wang (Benoit Wong) with a roster of new and recurring faces, including America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) and Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) as they face the multiverse.
“The film is a journey through the multiverse, so you see different iterations of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, and even Lizzie Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff character,” the director said. Sam Raimiwho previously led Tobey Maguire‘s Spider-Man trilogy, told Fandango last month. “[America Chavez is] a newcomer to his powers and to our world. She actually comes from another universe. I think it brings a feeling of lightness and youth. Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange can be a very selfish, stuffy, know-it-all character. She just flies in the face of it.
Later in the season, Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return to Jurassic Park in Jurassic World Dominion alongside several of the franchise’s OG stars.
“[Laura Dern, Sam Neill and Jeff Goldblum] have the same screen time as Chris and Bryce”, director Colin Trevorrow Told Weekly entertainment in December 2021. “They are major characters from start to finish.”
The trio previously starred in the 1993 dinosaur movie, nearly 30 years before the final sequel hit theaters.
“I was thrilled to do this for several reasons. First of all, being with my old friends Laura and Jeff, you know. … I really liked the new cast; and the established cast of Jurassic World, they’re just the nicest people,” Neill said. The Hollywood Reporter in February. “Bryce and Chris are absolute lovers. Because we were so beleaguered by COVID at this point, we felt like we were kind of on our own brave business, and it brought us closer than ever. It was truly an unforgettable moment and I am very grateful for that.
