Doctor Strange 2 Writer Michael Waldron Reveals MCU Multiverse is Flawed

Michael Waldron, who has written the script for the first season of Loki and more recently Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, has a few regrets about his rules around alternate realities.

“We worked pretty hard on Loki to make it as airtight as possible,” Waldron told Digital Spy in a recent interview about the connection between the series and Doctor Strange. “But there were times when I was like, ‘Oh, shit, I wish I hadn’t have defined that so clearly. I don’t know why I had to be so specific in my time-travel television show about the rules of the multiverse’.”

However, Waldron’s background in the hit Disney+ series helped him a lot during the process of integrating the two projects. Waldron explained, “I was glad that I came in with institutional knowledge of the multiverse and was able to get the creative team of Doctor Strange [in the Multiverse of Madness] on the same page as me on everything. Because like with Loki, that’s the most important thing when you’re dealing with this.”

Michael Waldron’s statements on his involvement with Doctor Strange 2 and Loki suggest that there might be some continuity between the series and the movie even if the two do not hint at any specific connections. The second season of Loki recently became the first Marvel Studio’s Disney+ series to get renewed, with Aaron Moorhead and Justin Benson as its directors. The duo also helmed a couple of episodes for the recently concluded Moon Knight starring Oscar Isaac recently.

Previously, Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige has also hinted at connections between Loki and Doctor Strange 2, alongside one more recent MCU movie that explored the multiverse. Talking to, Feige revealed, “Loki and Sylvie did something at the end of that series that sort of allowed all of this to be possible. He Who Remains is gone and that allowed a spell to go wrong in Spider-Man: No Way Home, which leads to the entire multiverse going quite mad in [Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness].”

All these alternate versions of realities and various connections will soon get sorted as Sam Raimi’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits theaters tomorrow.
