The second trailer for Marvel’s “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” which will be released in theaters on May 6, has been released.
Many new details were revealed, including a glimpse of Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch possibly going bad and a quick audio cameo from Patrick Stewart, who sounded like he was reprising his role as Professor X from the “X-Men” series.
“Multiverse of Madness” is the first standalone sequel for Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), and it follows the Sorcerer Supreme as he tries to contain the fallout from the multiverse-fracturing spell he cast in “Spider-Man: No Way Home,” which caused villains from all over the multiverse to spill into the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline.
Doctor Strange pairs up with Wanda Maximoff in this picture, which takes place after the events of “WandaVision” and “Loki” (Olsen).
The Doctor Strange-Wanda meet-up, action-packed battle scenes, and someone who appears to be an evil, alternate version of Doctor Strange, who first appeared in the animated Disney Plus series “What If…?” were all teased in the first trailer for “Multiverse of Madness,” which was originally released as a post-credits scene for “No Way Home” last December.
Doctor Strange remarks, “The multiverse is a notion about which we know disturbingly little.” “It was the only option… “However, none of this was my intention.”
In addition to Cumberbatch and Olsen, Benedict Wong will reprise his role as Wong, Rachel McAdams will reprise her role as Dr. Christine Palmer, and Chiwetel Ejiofor will reprise his role as Karl Mordo in “Multiverse of Madness.” As America Chavez, Xochitl Gomez will make her MCU debut.
Sam Raimi directs “Multiverse of Madness.” The script was written by Michael Waldron and Jade Halley Bartlett of “Loki.” The release date has been pushed back a year owing to the COVID-19 epidemic.
