Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness: all you need to know

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

The multiverse is a concept we know frighteningly little about. With these words, Steven Strange admonished Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home, when the Sorcerer Supreme was preparing to perform a powerful spell whose consequences will be central in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of madness, the second lonely chapter of Strange on the big screen. What the magician played by Benedict Cumberbatch did in the previous chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe represents, in fact, one of the turning points of Phase Four of the cinematic dimension of the heroes of the House of Ideas, which is why it would be better to arrive well prepared in the next theater. May 4, how much Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will show us just how much Strange's mistakes will come to haunt the Sorcerer Supreme.

Since his announcement, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has been deeply connected to two recent productions of the Marvel Cinematic Univers: Spider-Man: No Way Home and WandaVision. In fact, Strange's role within the MCU has dramatically changed following the events of another continuity staple of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Avengers: Endgame. And it is starting from the final chapter, at least for now, of the Avengers saga that we should think about how the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Stephen Strange have changed.

From the seriality of Marvel Cinemati Universe has also arrived the first hatch of the concept of multiverse, an aspect that will be central not only in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. His first mention in the Marvel Cinematic Universe takes place in Doctor Strange, during Strange's training in Kamar-Taj, when the Ancient reveals a first of the truths of mystical power:

"He believes that there is only this universe made of matter? What is real? What mysteries lie beyond the reach of his senses? This universe is only one of an infinite number. Endless worlds, some benevolent and life-giving. Others, full of evil and misery, dark places where more ancient powers more ancient than time remain eagerly awaiting "

Soon, Strange would have met Dormammu in one of these universes, but the presence of the multiverse in Marvel Cinematic Universe opens up new possibilities. With Loki we saw the introduction of the concept of variant, that is, alternative versions of an individual, while the animated series Marvel's What if ...?, Referring to the Marvel comic tradition, showed the infinite possibilities offered by these thousands of other realities. And it is precisely by looking at this animated series that we find one of the essential components of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness: the variants of Strange.

Doctor Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

It would be easy to trace back to only Spider-Man: No Way Home the task of being viaticum for what will be the Strange of Phase Four. While the spell cast to help Parker is central to the events of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it should be remembered how even in Avengers: Endgame the Sorcerer Supreme played a thankless role, being, in a sense, the only one to know. how the fight with Thanos would have ended, failing to find a way to save Tony Stark.

On closer inspection, the demise of Marvel Cinematic Universe columns such as Iron Man and Captain America has left this universe without a leader around which the superhero community can enclose itself. Apparently, this task fell on Strange’s shoulders, as we saw with the latest Wallramp movie. The character's charisma places him as a point of reference for these seemingly unguided heroes, even though Strange's attitude in Spider-Man: No Way Home has given us a Strange apparently unaware of his role, to the point of to be willing to cast a dangerous spell without showing perplexity.

Stephen Strange's attitude is different in one of the productions of the Marvel Cinematic Universe: Marvel's What if….? In this animated series, where the concept of the multiverse is approached with greater attention, the presented versions of the Sorcerer Supreme, starting with the episode What if ... Doctor Strange had lost his heart instead of his hands? , show a clearer definition of Strange's soul and his role, keeping faith with the Marvelian mantra that great powers come with great responsibilities. What has been shown so far in the trailers of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, seems to indicate that the sense of responsibility will be central in the film directed by Sam Raimi, not only in terms of repercussions on the choices made on the superhero community, but also on how much the decisions made have impacted on Strange's personality.

In order to better understand what led Stephen Strange to this moment in his life, it would therefore be better to review some of the chapters of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, available on Disney +:

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness: Lost Souls in the Multiverse

In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, not only Stephen Strange will be involved in the mission to remedy the dire consequences of the events of S pider-Man: No Way Home. Alongside the Sorcerer Supreme, we will see both well-known faces of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and new appearances, which will also be joined by excellent returns that are thrilling fans of Marvel cinecomics.

Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) became the Scarlet Witch , has acquired great powers, making her one of the most powerful and unstable heroines in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. From being a Hydra pawn in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Wanda has become an Avenger, until an unfortunate choice of hers during a mission (Captain America: Civil War) causes a massacre that will prompt the international community to request the signing of the Agreements of Sokovia, a legal corpus to which all heroes must undergo. Siding with opponents led by Steve Rogers, Wanda will eventually be forced into hiding, which she will exit during the events of I nfinity War and Endgame. Upon Vision's death, Wanda was unable to process the loss, creating a fictional reality in which she and the syntezoid had a family, but when the truth emerges, Wanda confronts the witch Agatha Harkness, responsible for this madness, letting her parents emerge. full powers by becoming the Scarlet Witch. What she experienced, she pushes her to deepen her studies on Darkhold, an ancient magical text, in the hope of being able to find a way again to have a peaceful life. The trailers of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness seem to indicate that the witch is not a sure ally for the Sorcerer Supreme, since in several dialogues Wanda seems to wonder why her choices are seen as a danger, while they are acts of heroism if done by others.

“You break the rules, and you become a hero. I do it, and I become the enemy "

Italian trailer of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) is a young woman from another dimension capable of evoking portals that allow movement between the different universes. In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, America should be an ally of Strange, a traveling companion along with Wanda in an attempt to remedy the fracture of the multiverse. It is not yet clear how much the character played by Xochitl Gomez will be similar to the America Chavez of the comics, but what is shown in the trailer seems to show a strong similarity to the heroine of the Marvel comics.

In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness we will also see Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) again, even in the trailers it seems that we will find ourselves in front of an alternative version of Strange's old friend. If in the first film dedicated to the Sorcerer Supreme we had seen in the final Mordo take a dark road, the scenes of the next film of the Marvel Cinematic Universe seem to indicate a different nature of the character, which would tie him to the presence of the Illuminati. In the Marvel comics, the Illuminati were a secret group consisting of Iron Man, Charles Xavier, Namor, Reed Richards and Balck Bolt, born to ensure a closer collaboration between the main metahuman forces of the Marvel Universe. The illuminati are responsible for some often regretful decisions, such as the exile in space of the Hulk, which later resulted in the two sagas of Planet Hulk and World War Hulk. In Doctor Stragne in the Multiverse of Madness, the Illuminati seem to be a kind of custodians of the Multiverse, which also includes an alternative Charles Xavier, again played by Patrick Stewart.

You don't pay to have only one Strange, thanks to the multiverse we will also have the opportunity to see different versions of the Sorcerer Supreme, such as its zombie declination or the dark one seen in Marvel's What if…? With the presence of the multiverse, moreover, the appearance of new characters has been theorized, letting fans who have seen in the presence of the Illuminati a powerful appearance of awaited Marvelian heroes, such as Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four, unleash.
