Your here for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness footage description from the clip shown at CinemaCon. If that’s not why you’re here, then beware film SPOILERS below. Around 20 minutes of the movie was shown to audiences at CinemaCon yesterday. Before we get to the footage description from the folks over at Screen Rant, some official information from the Disney press release.
Marvel Studios took the CinemaCon audience on a thrill ride through the Multiverse with footage from “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” which opens in U.S. theaters on May 6. With the film, the MCU unlocks the Multiverse and pushes its boundaries further than ever before. Fans will journey into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies both old and new, traverses the mind-bending and dangerous alternate realities of the Multiverse to confront a mysterious new adversary.
“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, with Michael Stühlbarg, and Rachel McAdams. The film is directed by Sam Raimi, and Kevin Feige is the producer. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Eric Hauserman Carroll, Scott Derrickson and Jamie Christopher serve as executive producers. The screenplay was written by Michael Waldron.
Now here is the footage description from Screen Rant who were in attendance at the presentation.
The clip shows Sacred Timeline Doctor Strange having a nightmare about fighting a fire monster with America. Later on, the main Doctor Strange and Wong meet America Chavez, who claims that his dreams are events from an alternate universe. Doctor Strange demands that she proves her claims and she does by bringing him to another Doctor Strange body. Elsewhere, Wanda is also having a dream about her perfect family in WandaVision. But she wakes up heartbreakingly alone.
Elsewhere in the clip, Doctor Strange attends Christine Palmer’s (Rachel McAdams) wedding. There were references to Thanos’ (Josh Brolin) snap and its reversal in Avengers: Endgame. Snippets of this have been included in previous marketing footage for the upcoming sequel. But this is the first time that dialog from the scene has been revealed. The CinemaCon footage also features Wanda and Doctor Strange’s conversation in the garden. Apparently, the sorcerer seeks out the Scarlet Witch to ask for her help regarding America’s situation. But as hinted by other promo footage for the blockbuster, the whole thing is an illusion created by Wanda to trap Doctor Strange.
