In a TV spot broadcast on YouTube, Doctor Strange meets the Illuminati and some characters well known to fans of Marvel productions.
In just two days, spectators will be able to lay their eyes on the new production of the house of ideas. After Spider-Man: No Way Home, Marvel formalizes the opening of the multiverse with great fanfare in front of Sam Raimi’s camera. The filmmaker, to whom we owe the trilogy Spiderman with Tobey Maguire, will stage the second part of the adventures of the character played by Benedict Cumberbatch.
A particularly mysterious new feature film, since it promises to bring back certain iconic protagonists of the license and much more. Alongside Strange, we will find Wanda Maximoff camped by Elizabeth Olsen, Wong by Benedict Wong and a little news. Xiochitl Gomez will play America Chavez, a teenager capable of traveling in the multiverse. She should help Doctor Strange deal with the disastrous consequences of the spell he cast in No Way Home.
The new TV spot also confirms the presence of several other characters, starting with the Illuminati. In the comics, this secret team includes the most powerful heroes on the planet. She was created on the initiative of Iron Man after the Kree / Skrull War and has the mission to make important decisions related to the superhuman community.
We can also see one of the members of this organization in the trailer. Professor Xavier, played by Patrick Stewart, will obviously be there. The appearance of his wheelchair leaves no room for doubt, the introduction of the X-Men in the MCU is not very far away.
Captain Carter also on the trip
Despite being very short in length, the new footage shared by Marvel is packed full of plot information. We can also discover a character holding a shield with the British flag. If you have seen the animated series What if? you already know who it is.
With its series broadcast on Disney +, Marvel had offered an alternative version of the origins of Captain America. While Steve Rogers was to receive the super serum, it was ultimately Agent Carter who was transformed. She then becomes Captain Carter, and protects humanity during the Second World War.
This alternate reality should be explored by Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Marvel is no longer afraid of spoilers
The house of ideas does not like spoilers. Some of the actors have also paid the price for this intransigent policy, like Tom Holland who was not allowed to read the entire script ofAvengers: Endgame. It must be said that the little neighborhood spider has a hard time keeping secrets, and there were many of them in the film directed by the Russo brothers.
Since then, Kevin Feige seems to have come to terms with the idea that nothing can stay top secret for long. While a scene leaked on social networks, the big boss of Marvel confided during a press conference dedicated to Doctor Strange 2.
“We can’t defeat spoilers, we just have to make sure that despite this, the film is still as good to discover. That’s what Spider-Man: No Way Home taught us.”
