Whether it will be with me, I’m not too sure yet. Maybe I’ll be a producer or something, I don’t know. But I do know that I love this character and I would be sad to say goodbye, but I have achieved basically everything I wanted to achieve as this character. I really think I’m gonna win the Oscar for this movie, so that’s great. So, I’m ready. I’m ready to say goodbye.”
However, producers at Sony have hinted on another trilogy in the works with the actor.
The events of No Way Home have set the stage for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness which will be releasing this year on May 6 and also stars Elizabeth Olsen.
