Monday's Headlines | Doctor Strange 2 Crew Arrives in London

Principal photography on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will soon begin as the film's crew has started to arrive in London ahead of filming. In a post to her Instagram Stories on Sunday, stunt performer CC Ice shared an image revealing she's now "in a bubble," the term for extended COVID-related measures prohibiting people from physically interacting with the outside world in hopes of stopping the spread of the coronavirus.

Ice has been a long-time collaborator with Marvel Studios and has served as Elizabeth Olsen's stunt double over the past few years. Working general stunts in Captain America: Civil War and Thor: Ragnarok, Ice then became Olsen's stunt double for Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, and reprises the role for WandaVision. She also served as Scarlett Johansson's stunt double on Black Widow.

UK prime minister Boris Johnson ordered a four-week national lockdown this week, prohibiting non-essential businesses from operating until the beginning part of December due to skyrocketing coronavirus cases. According to Hollywood insiders, the lockdown won't have an impact on any film productions taking place in the country.
