Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness doubled down on the craziness of the Multiverse, after it was introduced briefly in Spider-Man: No Way Home.
The third movie of the Spider-Man trilogy saw Tom Holland’s Peter Parker facing off past versions of live-action Spidey villains, which included Willem Dafoe’s Green Goblin, Alfred Molina’s Doc Ock, Jamie Foxx’s Electro and many more. To help him out, Holland’s Spidey also got some help from the multiverse in the form of other live-action Spider-Man variants played by Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire.
Following the events of No Way Home, Doctor Strange travelled the multiverse with Xochitl Gomez’s America Chavez in his sequel, while being hunted by Wanda Maximoff aka the Scarlet Witch.
The movie included more madness from the multiverse with different variants of Marvel comic book characters like Mister Fantastic and Professor X. Additionally, we even received glimpses of some crazy worlds, where reality is quite different from what we have become quite accustomed to.
For the most part, it seemed like the Doctor Strange sequel covered most aspects of the craziness that comes along with exploring the mutliverse. However, according to the movie’s official press release obtained by The Direct, Scarlet Witch actress Elizabeth Olsen believes that this is just the start of things to come soon in the MCU.
The movie introduced a lot of concepts and people that Marvel comic book fans have known for decades. With incursions and characters like Clea added to the mix, Marvel Studios now have the opportunity to create bigger stakes for its future movies by adding more elements to the threats introduced by characters like Kang the Conqueror in the Loki Disney+ show. While Phase 4 will likely revolve around the characters in the MCU, Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will blow open the doors of the multiverse once again to set up the next major event movie, which could end up being the live-action adaptation of Secret Wars.
