An all-new teaser for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness showcases zombie versions of both Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch and Stephen Strange.
At two different points in the trailer that is about a minute long, the camera is seen cutting off to the zombified versions of Strange and Wanda that were initially introduced in Disney+’s animated MCU series What If…? The zombie Strange had been teased in previous Multiverse of Madness promotional materials, however, this remains the clearest look till now.
Watch the promo below:
Doctor Strange Will Determine How Powerful Scarlet Witch Is
Olsen will return to play the role of Wanda Maximoff in the upcoming MCU movie, something that has been earlier teased in the initial trailer for Multiverse of Madness, which made its premiere as an end-credits scene for No Way Home. While Spider-Man: No Way Home confirmed that Strange isn’t the Sorcerer Supreme anymore and that Wong holds the title now, co-producer Richie Palmer revealed that Multiverse of Madness will finally determine exactly how powerful Scarlet Witch is.
“I don’t know who’s more powerful than Wanda,” Palmer said. “Meeting the Wanda Maximoff at the end of [Avengers: Endgame] would have been a lot for Strange. Who comes out on top as the most powerful being in the universe? Maybe we find out at the end of the movie.”
While Multiverse of Madness will probably confirm if Scarlet Witch is stronger than Doctor Strange or not, Olsen had earlier revealed that she was “excited to do dialogue with [star Benedict Cumberbatch],” even saying that she “really enjoyed [their] constant conversation, of analysis and trying to understand where both characters are coming from.” Olsen had wrapped the filming on her Doctor Strange 2 reshoots way back in September.
Doctor Strange 2 Will Release In May
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness picks those plot points that were established in not only What If…? but also WandaVision and Spider-Man: No Way Home. “It is madness, for sure, what happens in our film,” Benedict Cumberbatch recently revealed. “It’s pretty full-on. And it’s big, man. It’s very, very ambitious. And if we bring it off, I think it could be one of the biggest [Marvel films] we’ve seen so far.”
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is directed by Sam Raimi and will conjure its way into theaters on May 6th.
