The Marvel universe seems to get more and more complicated with each new series. It’s understandable if you feel a little disoriented about what will even happen in the time to come Doctor Strange sequel. We’re here to clear up a few things.
We expect an insane return of our favorite Marvel characters in the new sequel titled Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness. But how, with all these returning characters, will they be incorporated into Doctor Strange’s storyline? Here’s everything you need to know about the cast and plot of the upcoming sequel.
What will happen in the Doctor Strange sequel?
Not many details have been revealed about the highly anticipated Doctor Strange sequel. What we do know is the following synopsis: “After the events of Avengers: Endgame, put Dr. Stephen Strange continues his investigation of the Time Stone. But an old friend turned enemy puts an end to his plans and causes Strange to unleash unspeakable evil.
In June 2020, Chiwetel Ejiofor revealed that he would be returning as Mordo in the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel. With the ominous plot description, perhaps we can assume that Mordo will be the “old friend turned enemy.”
The audience saw Mordo take a darker path after the after-credits scene in the first Doctor Strange movie. While we can expect numerous villains in one Marvel movie, it’s clear that Mordo will return as an adversary.
Wanda Maximoff from WandaVision
Elizabeth Olsen is set to play in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and we couldn’t be happier with her return. Olsen has already announced that the dramatic finale of WandaVision is a “complete tee-up for my character” in the Doctor Strange sequel.
Although, Olsen confessed that she didn’t receive the story before… Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness until two weeks before WandaVision wrapped up. She revealed: “I really wish there was a plan that someone shared with me a little sooner [laughs].”
Many are now wondering if the Scarlet Witch will return not as a hero but as a villain. In the WandaVision post-credit scenes, we saw her studying the Darkhold. We won’t know for sure about her return until more details or a trailer is released by Marvel.
Loki is ready to return
Kevin Feige, producer & Marvel Studios president, has reported that the Doctor Strange sequel will work across the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). This includes all Marvel series released on Disney+. He has also revealed that there will be a direct link between the Doctor Strange sequel and the… Loki series.
Tom Hiddleston has officially been added to the cast of Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness. So all the events that took place in the Loki series are fair game to be included in the Doctor Strange sequel.
Feige has also indicated that the Marvel shows are essential to the upcoming sequel. If you want to keep up to date with all the merging storylines, each series is a must-see. Feige said:These episodes will intersect the movies in a very big way. It’s a totally new form of storytelling that we can play and explore.”
Other returning and new characters
In addition to these heavy-hitters, we have a number of returning characters for the new sequel. Rachel McAdams returns to the Doctor Strange world as Christine Palmer. Benedict Wong also returns as Wong.
Many are anticipating the arrival of Miss America, also known as America Chavez. The beloved cartoon character is played by Babysitter Club star Xochitl Gomez. We can’t wait to see the debut of Miss America, who has been in talks for a while about joining the MCU cast.
After some delays, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be released in theaters on March 25, 2022. Will you hit the theaters to see the star-studded cast? What do you think will happen in the new Doctor Strange sequel? Let us know in the comments below!
