Oscar-nominated composer Danny Elfman is set to lend his talents to the upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. He recently spoke with Inverse about joining the film to provide the score. You can check out what he had to say below.
“I am starting to do bits of pre-work for Doctor Strange 2 that Sam Raimi’s directing, Even though I don’t start it for some months, there’s bits of recorded music they need for the sets.”

While Elsman created the theme for Tim Burton’s Batman and The Nightmare Before Christmas (he has worked with Burton on many projects) along with many, many other musical credits, Elfman may be most well-known for composing the now-iconic theme to The Simpsons. The film will also reunite Elfman with director Sam Raimi who directed the Spider-Man films that starred Tobey Maguire for which Elfman was also a composer.
Elfman is one of the great film composers. Up there with the likes of Hanz Zimmer, Alan Silvestri, and yes, John Williams. I think his previous pairings with Tim Burton will add just the right amount of strangeness needed to bring the perfect score to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
With the multiverse being in play, the possibilities of what could happen in the film are endless. The latest rumor poses we may see introductions of characters such as Professor X and Mr. Fantastic
