We have a new Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness synopsis courtesy of Marvel Studios Japan, and a translation by The Cosmic Circus. Clearly Marvel are willing to be slightly more forthcoming with their fans in Japan. Check it out below.
“The door of the multiverse, full of mystery and madness, opens.”
“Now that Iron Man and Captain America have left after a fierce battle in Avengers: Endgame, former genius surgeon and the strongest magician of them all, Doctor Strange, is expected to play an active role as a central figure in the Avengers. However, using his magic to manipulate time and space at will with a forbidden spell that is considered the most dangerous has opened the door to a mysterious madness called “the Multiverse.” To restore a world where everything is changing, Strange seeks help from his ally Wong, the Sorcerer Supreme, and the Avengers’ most powerful Scarlet Witch, Wanda. But a terrible threat looms over humanity and the entire universe that no longer can be done by their power alone. Even more surprising, the greatest threat in the universe looks exactly like Doctor Strange …”
“Director Sam Raimi, who has expressed a unique world view, will captivate the whole world with overwhelming scale and unprecedented visual experience that will transcend time and space!”
Given the very little we have seen in the trailer, this does look like one trippy ride. Interesting line from this, “the greatest threat in the universe looks exactly like Doctor Strange”. That would imply that Strange Supreme from What If? being perhaps an antagonist here? We see him in the trailer, but I never once imagined he would be the actual antagonist. Especially given the arc the character goes through in What If? going on to lead the Guardians of the Multiverse. Will we see that What If? team in Multiverse of Madness? There have been rumors Captain Carter may show up, plus a ton more potential crazy cameos and appearances.
I will say that the Strange Supreme episode of What If? was my favorite, so fingers crossed for this movie big time. It sounds and looks great, let’s see if the execution matches the hype?
What do you think of this Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness synopsis? Thoughts below as always.
