The surprise teaser serves as the film’s final post-credits scene and gives Marvel fans their first look at the highly-anticipated film. Sorcerer Supreme next part. The film has been the subject of much debate and speculation since it was first announced and is expected to pick up on multiple multiverse themes hung by titles like There is no way home, WandaVision, What if…?, and Loki.
Thankfully, the first trailer for Doctor Strange 2 suggests that it will manage to do all that and more. It’s a psychedelic-appropriate teaser, full of exciting revelations and moments that will delight Marvel fans.
Here are the five biggest easter eggs and revealed in the first trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness – and all their meanings.
5. Doctor Strange 2: Meet Shuma-Gorath
One of the biggest – and most shocking – rumors started circulating online about Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness early this year it will be nothing but Shuma-Gorath as an antagonist. The comic book character is a green one-eyed tentacle monster who was banished long ago but still intends to return and rule Earth.
Similar rumors have suggested that Shuma-Gorath will be looking to use the dimensional jumping powers of America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) to do so. While the accuracy of that particular rumor remains unclear, Madness’s Multiverse The trailer confirms Shuma-Gorath’s presence in the film, showing a brief moment in which Gorath rushes into Doctor Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) bus only to have the witch cut it in half with a spell.
4. Doctor Strange 2: Introduction Ms. America
Xochitl Gomez’s America Chavez is also featured a few times throughout the trailer and can even be seen wearing a fun comic version of the character’s iconic jean jacket.
Chavez can – among other things – create portals that allow her to travel freely across the multiverse. She will appear on the silver screen in Sorcerer Supreme sequel and let her have sex with young Avengers In the comics, she is expected to become a major hero in the MCU. That speaks to the exact nature of her role in Madness’s Multiverse is still a mystery.
Some rumors have stated that she will run away from Shuma-Gorath, while others have suggested that it will Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) who hope use the power of the United States for its own benefit. However, all the Madness’s Multiverse The trailer actually shows us a brief shot of her standing next to Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange, which means we can expect to see the two characters go together for at least part of the movie.
3. Doctor Strange 2: Baron Mordo is back
Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) returns to his long-awaited MCU Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and the movie’s first trailer features a lot of footage. It appears Mordo is still on his crusade to eliminate the so-called witchcraft problem of the universe, with the character telling Strange his “defamation” over time and space. in Spider-Man: There’s no way home will not be “unpunished”.
The trailer goes on to tease the conflict between Strange and Mordo, then informs Strange that he’s dangerously wrong about who the biggest threat to the multiverse really is.
2. Doctor Strange 2: Scarlet Witch is back
The Madness’s Multiverse The trailer also shows Doctor Strange visiting Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff, who tells him, “I knew sooner or later you’d show up. I made mistakes, and people got hurt.” However, strangely interrupted her, telling her that he was not there to “talk about Westview”. Instead, he comes to seek her help, and when Wanda asks what he needs, he says, “What do you know about the multiverse?”
The implication is that Strange wasn’t after Wanda because she did something, but because he really needed her help to repair the multiverse damage he did. Spider-Man: There’s no way home. How Wanda’s role in the film will evolve from there is still unknown, although there’s another shot in the trailer where Wanda dons her full Scarlet Witch costume while performing some sort of Magic.
Taking that into account, it seems that Wanda’s journey in Madness’s Multiverse in the end may just be darkness as has been speculated. But the film’s trailer also suggests that, contrary to popular belief, Wanda won’t be its main antagonist.
1. Doctor Strange and Doctor Strange
The Madness’s Multiverse The trailer ends with a major reveal: The live-action debut of a dark alternate reality version of Sorcerer Supreme, possibly the same variant introduced in What if…? Part 1.
“I hope you understand. The biggest threat to our universe… is you,” Mordo told Strange immediately before the trailer showed him facing his alternate self. Also played by Cumberbatch, the villain variant is terrifying and appears to reside in a spooky version of the Sanctum Sanctorum floating near a massive cosmic vortex.
Smiling all the while, the dark Strange told his other self that “things just got out of hand.” It’s a moment that not only confirms the highly anticipated MCU sequel that will connect with the first about the multiverse What if…?, but will also go to places scarier than any other live-action MCU movie.
We can’t wait to get there with it.
