The multiverse of madness reveals a shocking new enemy.


After assisting in the defeat of Thanos, Doctor Strange finds himself once again safeguarding the universe. Next year, Doctor Strange 2 or Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will hit the cinemas on May 26, 2022.

The highly anticipated film began filming in London in late 2020 and was completed in April 2021, but reshoots are still being conducted, according to Marvel executive Victoria Alonso. The film was meant to be released on March 25, 2022. However, it has been postponed for the third time until later 2022.

Despite multiple delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Spider-Man: No Way Home, which was recently released, does an excellent job of generating anticipation for the upcoming film.

In the second end-credits scene in Spider-Man: No Way Home, fans get a full-length teaser for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The end scene gave a glimpse of the fallout from Doctor Strange's most devastating spell, which nearly ripped open the multiverse. The complete trailer has now been published for all fans to enjoy on social media and YouTube.

Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) delivers a voice-over at the beginning of the trailer that says magical recklessness "will not go unpunished". The sentence is a warning he said in Doctor Strange's first solo film. After that, the trailer continues with a glimpse of Rachel McAdam as Dr. Christine Palmer, Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Xochitl Gomez as America Chave, and we even get to see Doctor Strange's nemesis, Shuma Gorath. A big revelation occurs at the end of the trailer, as Mordo steps aside to reveal "the evil Doctor Strange".

What to expect in the film

With the repercussions of tampering with space and time, the forthcoming sequel to the Marvel Cinematic Universe will follow Stephen Strange as he falls into a parallel universe. As part of his effort to save the multiverse, he seeks out the assistance of Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), who has just escaped from WandaVision's alternate realities. Scarlet Witch herself is on a mission for penance after trapping the unwitting residents of Westview, New Jersey, as a means of mourning the death of Vision.

As the multiverse crumbles, fans can see Doctor Strange teaming up with Scarlet Witch to fight many threats. On top of Karl Mordo, various monsters and villains will appear, including the evil version of Doctor Strange.

Meanwhile, the Marvel Universe has also been torn apart in the six-episode run of Loki. The series finale establishes a chaotic universe that appears to be closely related to the title of Strange's sequel. Michael Waldron, Loki's writer, who also co-wrote the upcoming Doctor Strange film, has admitted that the film will try to clean up the mess previously created by the God of Mischiefs in his TV series. However, it's still unclear whether Tom Hiddleston, Loki's star, will also appear in the film.

Scott Derrickson, who directed the first Doctor Strange film, was slated to return for this sequel, but he backed out in January due to "creative disagreements." Derrickson was reportedly pushing for an even more terrifying multiverse, while Marvel Studios' president, Kevin Feige, wanted to make it more family-friendly.

However, it's worth noting that Derrickson has been replaced by perhaps one of today's most well-known horror film directors, as Evil Dead creator Sam Raimi was revealed to join the project in April. Being the director of the original Spider-Man trilogy starring Tobey Maguire, he's no stranger to the superhero genre either, suggesting a potential cameo from the former Spidey. 

Jad Bartlett and Michael Waldron are in charge of the script, while Danny Elfman steps in to handle the film's score. This will be another superhero film where Elfman and Raimi work together, as they previously teamed up for the first two of the original Spider-Man movies.
