2 min


Strap on that cape, take your spellbook. and grab that timestone as Marvel releases a synopsis for Doctor Strange 2.

Doctor Strange And The Multiverse of Madness is part of Marvel’s phase 4 films alongside movie like Eternals, Black Widow, and Thor: Love And Thunder and was announced way back in July 2019 in SDCC.

At that time not much was known about the film other than it was confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch was returning and Elizabeth Olsen will be reprising her role as Wanda Maximoff. A few months later it was said that the events of Wandavision will tie into Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness.

After the news about Wandavison, nothing new was heard regarding the sequel until two weeks ago when Director Scott Derrickson dropped out due to creative differences. The news hit hard and fans were expecting a delay but it seems there is no stopping Multiverse of Madness as the official synopsis was released today. 

The synopsis goes as follows:

After the events of Avengers: Endgame, Dr. Stephen Strange continues his research on the Time Stone. But an old friend turned enemy seeks to destroy every sorcerer on Earth, messing with Strange’s plan and also causing him to unleash an unspeakable evil.

Synopsis for Doctor Strange 2

The synopsis reveals a fair amount. The first being that the time stone, last seen in Avengers: Endgame, will be returning and playing a role in the story. Right now, it’s unclear what the time stone’s return can or will lead to.

The second reveal is that Baron Mordo may be the “old friend turned enemy” that the synopsis references. As we saw by the end of Doctor Strange, Mordo loses faith in Strange as well as the Ancient One. Currently, it’s being rumored that Rachel McAdams will return; however, this is just speculation for the moment.

As of right now, fans can only guess what is going to happen as various questions have been raised. How will Scarlet Witch play a role in all of this? What is going to be the purpose of the Time Stone? What is this unspeakable evil? We all will have to wait until 2021 to find out.

Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness is set to release on 5 May, 2021.
