Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) looks to be learning the hard way after ripping open the cosmos in Spider-Man: Homecoming that completely changing reality has repercussions. Doctor Strange, the master of the mysterious arts, finds himself in well over his head in this new promotional trailer for Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness–but can he even remember why?

Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness builds on the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home and the Disney+ programs WandaVision and Loki. Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch, who is yearning to reconnect with her two sons Billy and Tommy, is one of the other recognizable characters returning for the sequel. Xochitl Gomez’s America Chavez is the most well-known of the newcomers, while Patrick Stewart will appear in Multiverse of Madness, although it is unclear if he would take on the role of Professor X in the series.

In a recent interview, Raimi stated that when the film’s original director Scott Derrickson and Marvel Studios head honcho Kevin Feige first promoted the film, “they said it was going to be the first Marvel super-hero film that had an element of horror to it.” Raimi went on to say that the film was “the first Marvel super-hero film that had an element of horror to it.”

In the aftermath of Derrickson’s departure from the project (reportedly due to creative disputes), Raimi said that “that was still the directive.” “To create the first Marvel picture with a horror aspect to it,” says the director. As a result, I stayed faithful to their first remarks.”

As previously reported by movieweb.com, acclaimed horror filmmaker and producer Sam Raimi, of The Evil Dead and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness fame, has said that his next sequel would have a “element of horror.”

In his own words, the sequel is “spooky at moments and frightening at others.” It’s impossible to predict what you’ll discover in the Multiverse. Suspense and gloom can only exist in the midst of the unknowable. “An instrument for titillating the anxiety of the audience.” Fans won’t have to wait much longer, as the picture will be released in cinemas on May 6.

According to the logline of the film, Strange employs a spell to “manipulate time and space and open the door to a strange psychosis known as the Multiverse.” The Scarlet Witch and Wong come to Strange’s aid in order to restore order in a world where everything is shifting.

Xochitl Gomez plays America Chavez in the sequel, which is directed by Sam Raimi and written by Michael Waldron (Loki). Benedict Cumberbatch portrays Dr. Stephen Strange, with Elizabeth Olsen as the Scarlet Witch, Benedict Wong as Wong, Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer, Chiwetel Ejifor as Mordo, and Benedict Wong as Wong.

As a result, after more than six years of added value play in which fans enjoy seeing the Sorcerer Not So Supreme interact with his fellow Avengers, the campaign for Multiverse of Madness is banking on an increased appeal for Strange primarily by himself and only interacting with Scarlett Witch and the newcomer to the MCU American Chavez (Xochitl Gomez). As for Sam Raimi’s sequel, that may be true in terms of the horror/fantasy sequel, but the extent to which Doctor Strange 2 is now a “must-see” mythology chapter and a must-perform MCU flick is largely due to the pandemic turning the entire theatrical industry upside down and James Gunn getting fired and rehired for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (that film was supposed to be the Phase 4 kick-off flick).
