A fresh synopsis for Marvel’s forthcoming film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness:
A new description for Disney’s forthcoming film, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, has been released. The film, starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the eponymous Sorcerer Supreme, will pick up after the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home. Strange’s spell on Peter Parker/Spider-Man (Tom Holland) has some major effects, and the Sam Raimi-directed sequel is anticipated to explore those ramifications.
Here’s the latest synopsis:
“The MCU opens the Multiverse and pushes its bounds further than ever before in Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” Travel into the unknown with Doctor Strange as he crosses the mind-bending and hazardous multiple worlds of the Multiverse with the assistance of both old and new mystical allies to fight a strange new opponent.
While no specific allies or foes are expressly named, fans may make some educated assumptions based on the trailer that served as No Way Home’s second post-credits scene:
While no specific allies or foes are expressly named, fans may make some educated assumptions based on the teaser that served as No Way Home’s second post-credits scene. The antagonist (as the trailer suggests) appears to be a variation of Strange, similar to the one shown in What If…? last year. Benedict Wong, Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams), and America Chavez are also possible allies (Xochitl Gomez). It’s also unclear how Wanda/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) and Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) will fit in, given how their storylines ended in their prior appearances in WandaVision and Doctor Strange, respectively. When the original director, Scott Derrickson, left, Raimi took over as director. Reshoots were recently completed that were reportedly inspired by the success of both No Way Home and the Disney+ original series Loki. Michael Waldron, who worked on Loki as a head writer and producer, also wrote the sequel. It’s predicted that numerous major cameos will appear in the film, which coincides with the reshoots that followed No Way Home.
The third of three 2022 Marvel films, and the first of three 2022 sequels, is Multiverse of Madness:
The Multiverse of Madness is the first of three 2022 sequels and one of three 2022 Marvel features. Thor: Love and Thunder, directed by Taika Waititi, will reveal Thor’s (Chris Hemsworth) future adventures, while Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, directed by Ryan Coogler, will explore Wakanda’s enduring history. Both films will be released on July 8 and November 11, respectively. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be released in cinemas on May 6.
