One of the great attractions of this new installment is the appearance of the Scarlet Witch as the great villain of the story, in addition to the expectation generated by the use of the multiverse and the possible parallel realities that are unleashed from it. Something that we started seeing in the acclaimed “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, released in December 2021.
If you are one of those who are looking forward to this movie but the information behind it has you a bit confused, this article is for you. Next, all the data you need to know about “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness” and the marvelian universe that revolves around it.
Let’s start by reading what the synopsis tells us: “In”Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness”, the MCU unlocks the Multiverse and pushes its boundaries further than ever before. He journeys into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies old and new, traverses the mind-boggling and dangerous alternate realities to face a mysterious new adversary.”
The plot of “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness” takes place after the events seen in “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, so it is important that you watch this movie if you haven’t already.
What happened in “Spider-Man: No Way Home”? Without any intention of spoiling you, it must be said that it was in this film that the opening of the multiverse began, from which now, in “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness”We will see its consequences.
Let us remember that Peter Parker, concerned that his identity has been revealed to the world, asks Doctor Strange to alter reality so that everyone forgets his great secret. He agrees but while they are doing the spell, something goes out of control and what would be a “simple change” generates an alteration in the parallel realities. It is for this reason that we see characters like Electro, Doctor Octopus; Green Goblin; Sandman (man of sand) and the Lizard as well as the expected Spiderman of Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
What the trailer revealed
Let’s go back to the present and see what the trailer for “Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness”.
In these previews, because there are several, we saw that in addition to WandaVision, Professor Charles Xavier, founder and leader of the X-Men, will appear in this sequel and will be played by the remembered Patrick Stewart, the same actor who gave this character in the Marvel saga in the early 2000s.
About this participation, Stewart has commented to the portal comicbook.com the next: “People have imitated my voice since I walked on stage 60 years ago. So I can’t be held responsible for it. NI don’t look at social networks a lot, mostly for a matter of time, but I have to say that before I went to bed on Sunday night I had a lot of messages from friends and some people I barely knew saying: ‘ah! It’s you?’. Well of course they knew I was home waiting to watch football so how could it have been me? We’ll have to wait and see”.
According to the trailer, the Doc Strange 2 He will appear before a kind of court presided over by the so-called Professor X to answer about the consequences that the alteration of reality has unleashed.
Last March, Empire confirmed the rumors of the Illuminati in the Marvel Universe with a photo of the Doctor Strange in said court.
What follows in the trailer is to see Wanda destroying this cell that Strange is in to end not only him but everything in his path. But that’s not all, we also see the Scarlet Witch doing a kind of ritual and in the middle of this, her two children appear briefly. If you saw”WandaVision”, you will remember that all the family life of this character never existed but that she recreated it in a parallel reality.
It is said that these children would exist but in another reality and that Wanda could be trying to connect with her other parallel self. That would confirm because in the happy advance we see the character played by Elizabeth Olsen in different stages, a good one and a bad one.
