A few days ago, some reports said that the first Doctor Strange 2 The trailer will drop as a surprise post-credits scene at the end of Spider-Man: No Way Home. That made perfect sense, considering that Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) is a key character in the Spiderman film. Now that No way home has started showing in theaters in certain markets, we’ve witnessed a host of leaks that addressed several of the Spider-Man rumors that we saw throughout the year. But they also detailed the film’s post-credits scenes, including one Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Insanity surprise from the trailer.
The Doctor Strange 2 The trailer has now been leaked in its entirety after an audio version hit the web earlier this week. Yes indeed, Some Multiverse of Madness spoilers can follow below. But we won’t reveal any No way home Plot spoilers in what follows, aside from what the movie trailers showed us.
Why Multiverse of Madness It is so exciting
One of the rumors that Sony and Marvel confirmed with the first No way home trailer was the third independent Spiderman The adventure in the MCU is a multiverse story. It was Doctor Strange who addressed the multiverse in the clip.
The multiverse explains the arrivals of Spider-Man villains from the non-MCU movies. And it fits well with the general tone of the Phase 4 multiverse. Loki Y What if…? delivered the first significant multiverse stories from this phase of the MCU projects.
But in the summer of 2019 we had no idea that these three Marvel attractions would push the multiverse theme forward. Back then, the only confirmed multiverse movie was Doctor Strange 2, thanks to the inclusion of “Multiverse of Madness” In the title.
The name of the movie instantly made it one of the most exciting titles in Phase 4. We didn’t even need a Doctor Strange 2 trailer or plot leaks to realize that.
That’s because the multiverse gives Marvel the freedom to do whatever it pleases with the characters and the stories. We tested it lively earlier this year with What if…?. And remember that the action of the multiverse began in Avengers Endgame.
More interesting still, the multiverse opens the door to the use of characters from other Marvel franchises that were never part of the MCU. The multiverse allows Marvel to connect the MCU with Fox’s Marvel stories, Sony’s Spider-Man Universe (SSU), and Netflix’s Marvel shows without worrying about continuity issues. All of these events happen on different timelines, so anything is fair game.
The Doctor Strange 2 trailer leak
Why is all this speculation necessary to understand the Doctor Strange 2 trailer? You know how we always tell you that Marvel trailers are cut in ways that intentionally mislead the audience? Well, the angle of the multiverse makes it even easier for Marvel to make you see things that aren’t in it. Doctor Strange 2 trailer.
You’ll enter recognizing various familiar characters, and you might think that what they say and do happens in the primary reality of the MCU. But that will not always be the case. There’s at least one instance where the action probably doesn’t take place in the main MCU reality, and you’ll understand it even better if you’ve seen What if…? season 1.
That is because Doctor Strange 2 Trailer 1 could make it seem like Strange Supreme (Benedict Cumberbatch) is the main villain of the story. Rumor has it that this evil version of Stranger will appear on Multiverse of Madness, and it’s great to see the live-action version of the villain in person.
Also, the giant one-eyed octopus in the middle of town is probably not the biggest villain either. We knew that Gargantos would come thanks to that leak of the Lego set from a few days ago.
Is he the main villain shown in the leak? Doctor Strange 2 trailer? Probably, but we won’t go into any of the Doctor Strange 2 hatching rumors right now. Suffice to say, all of the main MCU cast members you hope to see in the sequel are included in this trailer. Aside from Cumberbatch, we have Wong (Benedict Wong), Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor), Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen), Dr. Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams) and America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) in the clip below.
The official teaser trailer is coming soon.
Note that Marvel could try to remove the leak Doctor Strange 2 YouTube trailer in the coming days. That’s because he’s still trying to preserve the post-credits surprise for No way homeopening weekend. But Marvel will likely release the full trailer online very soon.
