With just a week left for the theatrical release of possibly the most anticipated blockbuster of this year, the latest teaser of Doctor Strange 2 has now revealed Captain Carter. As the movie will explore the ramifications of opening up the multiverse in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Hayley Atwell’s Captain Carter is the newest addition to the movie.
Directed by Sam Raimi, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness picks right after the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home. With the multiverse left wide open, the Sorcerer Supreme finds a new ally in America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez), as the duo battle the horrors from different universes. Apart from Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, the movie also stars Elizabeth Olsen’s Scarlet Witch as another prominent character.

Who is Captain Carter?
Earlier last year, Marvel Studios released the animated series What If…? depicting alternate scenarios from the main continuity of the MCU. In one of the alternate realities, Agent Carter was chosen to take the supersoldier serum instead of Steve Rogers, resulting in the creation of Captain Carter. In the animated series, Hayley Atwell reprised her role as Agent Carter/Captain Carter.
What is Captain Carter doing in Doctor Strange 2?
When the first trailer of Doctor Strange 2 dropped, viewers were introduced to a variant of the Sorcerer Supreme named Sinister Strange. Interestingly, Sinister Strange made his first appearance in the What If…? series too. As the character has now been brought into the live-action adaptation, it is not surprising to see Captain Carter in Doctor Strange 2.
The latest teaser has once again name-dropped the Illuminati, confirming that the secret society will be making its appearance in the movie. Furthermore, the latest teaser also once again confirmed that Sir Patrick Stewart will be reprising his role as Charles Xavier/Professor X in Doctor Strange 2. However, the appearance of Captain Carter battling Wanda Maximoff in the Illuminati headquarters surely raises many questions.
In the teaser, Karl Mordo is seen bringing Stephen Strange into the Illuminati headquarters. As he is being ushered by Ultron-bots, the scene cuts to a wheelchair being eerily similar to the one used by Charles Xavier in the X-Men animated series. With the unmistakable voice of Sir Patrick Stewart asking ‘Let’s see, what kind of Doctor Strange you are‘, it seems the Illuminati is judging the Sorcerer Supreme for his recent activities.
The teaser also briefly shows Monica Rambeau’s version of Captain Marvel. However, the most surprising scene from the teaser is the revelation of Captain Carter, who is shown to be battling Wanda Maximoff. With Captain Carter’s revelation, it might be hinting that she is a member of the Illuminati. Moreover, the introduction of Captain Carter also paves the way for more characters from the What If…? series, who can potentially appear in Doctor Strange 2.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will release in theaters on May 6, 2022.
