The first “Doctor Strange 2” trailer leaked
With Spider-Man: No Path Home having finally hit the big screen (in some territories) today, it was almost inevitable that there would be leaks. The first web leak today was actually the first trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness A.K.A Doctor Strange 2 which, as reported earlier this week, was revealed as a post-credits scene from the latest wall-crawlers entry – and it’s now leaked online.
The trailer opens with Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange echoing his words from the Spider-Man: No Path Home trailer where he explains how the “Multiverse is a concept we know terribly little about” with him wandering through what looks like a twisted version of New York City. We hear what sounds like Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Mordo telling him that his “desecration of reality will not go unpunished,” Strange replying that it was the only way.
We get a quick look at the main cast in the sequel, including Benedict Wong’s staunch mate Wong, Rachel Macadams’ Christine Palmer on her wedding day, and America Chavez of newcomer Xochitl Gomez.
We then switch the action to the film’s other big name, Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff, who is now apparently living an idyllic life, waiting for the day Strange comes to see her after his attempts to play at home fail terribly. badly spent in WandaVision earlier this year. To her surprise, however, he asks her for help with the multiverse.
From there we see a montage of shots featuring Mordo’s new look, Wanda cradling her new Scarlet Witch look while casting a spell, Kamar-Taj seemingly attacked, and Strange and America Chavez battling a multiversal being on the streets of New York, and last but not least, the reveal of the main villain – Doctor Strange.
However – this is not the Doctor Strange that we have come to know and love over the past few years, it appears to be the Doctor Strange Supreme that we last saw in What if … from Marvel? earlier this year. This certainly opens up the possibility of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness being one of the craziest entries in the MCU, especially considering what we’ve seen in the aforementioned animated series.
Hopefully we’ll see an official version of the trailer in the coming weeks, maybe after. Spider-Man: No Path Home had a decent run in theaters and people aren’t suspicious of spoilers. In the meantime, you can check out the leaked version below.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness A.K.A Doctor Strange 2 is slated to hit theaters on May 6, 2022. In the meantime, you can see Strange in Spider-Man: No Way Home in theaters now, and Scarlet Witch and Doctor Strange Supreme in WandaVision and What if…? on Disney Plus now.
