Marvel Studios dropped a teaser trailer and poster for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The highly anticipated addition to the MCU, and sequel to the studio’s 2016 hit, Doctor Strange, opens in theatres on 6 May 2022.
In the teaser, Doctor Strange doesn’t heed Wong’s warning, “Don’t cast that spell. It’s too dangerous. Strange realizes they tampered with the stability of space-time. Mordo’s voice threatens; your desecration of reality will not go unpunished, as Strange steps out into what appears to be the mirror dimension.”
Strange pleads, “But I never meant for any of this to happen”, as viewers see glimpses of an abandoned Sanctum Sanctorum, mayhem in the streets, Christine Palmer’s wedding to someone other than Strange, Wanda Maximoff’s glowing hands, and a battered Wong.
Strange visits Wanda at her new home in a remote area. Wanda declares, “I made mistakes and people were hurt, not realising Strange is not there to discuss the events in Westview, as seen in Marvel Studios’ WandaVision. He needs her help regarding the Multiverse.”
Mordo reminds Strange, “The greatest threat to our universe is you, just as Strange comes face to face, well, with his face, who smugly states, and things just got out of hand.”
The Sam Raimi-directed sequel stars returning cast Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange), Benedict Wong (Wong), Rachel McAdams (Christine Palmer), and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Mordo), as well as the addition of Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff) and newcomer Xochitl Gomez who will portray America Chavez, a new fan-favourite from the comics.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness arrives only in theatres on 6 May 2022.
