‘Do you know what the reshoots are gonna be or they just figure out what needed a little bit of work?,’ Jimmy wondered.

‘Like everything with Marvel, it comes in fresh pretty much most mornings despite these being reshoots. But, no, it’s really exciting and the film is shaping up to be something special,’ Benedict said.

Jimmy quizzed Benedict about some fan theories regarding the sequel and asked if Doctor Strange was behaving oddly because he is Mephisto.

‘Do you know anything about that?,’ Jimmy asked.
