With the countdown to ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ we are starting to get a sense of déjà vu with the weeks leading up to ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’. Since Marvel published the trailer for the Super Bowl of the Sam Raimi movie, we have been going around some of the unknowns that the trailer aroused, especially a certain voice that reminded a lot, too much, of Sir Patrick Stewart and what that could mean for those who are looking forward to mutants making their appearance in the MCU.
That ‘No Way Home’ opened the door to the multiverse would perfectly allow Charles Xavier from the ‘X-Men’ movies to make an appearance. However, the producer of the film, Richie Palmert, has something important to tell us about this cameo: “I’ll quote the first ‘X-Men’ movie and say, ‘Are you sure you saw what you saw?’ There are endless versions of these characters and just because you may have hated something familiar doesn’t mean it’s something you’ve seen before.“ comments in Empire magazine. Will Patrick Stewart play a completely different version of Professor X, or even a different character? In the multiverse anything is possible.
Palmert also spoke about the rumor of the Illuminati, the council of wise men that in the comics has had such illustrious personalities as Mr. Fantastic or Tony Stark, in addition to Stephen Strange himself: “As you saw in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home,’ some rumors turn out to be true, and some don’t. I’d love to see Tony again, but some rumors are just rumours. I will say I love the Illuminati. But if we do introduce the Illuminati in the future, they would probably be more rooted in the MCU and have more ties to the MCU characters instead of just replicating what happens in the comics.“. So, we will have to think about which characters from the movies would fit into this “council of wise men”.
It will live up to ‘No Way Home’
Coming after ‘No Way Home’ is, without a doubt, setting the bar high in terms of fan expectations. But Benedict Cumberbatch thinks his sequel will be up to the task: “It’s a big, big movie. It’s going to be absolutely crazy. And if he can match his level of ambition, we’re going to have a Spidey-level success.. There you have it, stick my flag in the sand”. Among the novelties of the film we have America Chavez, the character of Xochitl Gomez, capable of creating portals between realities. “(Strange) is so knowledgable that having to learn from a girl would probably drive him crazy” Sam Raimi advances, and Cumberbatch adds: “There’s a lot of reckoning. And a lot of self-discovery. Strange is almost a stranger to himself before this movie explodes and reveals what’s essentially in his nature, and he has to choose between confronting it, resisting it, fall into it or become it. There are very good ideas, and extraordinary tests and encounters for Strange. And very unexpected conclusions”. We really can’t wait to see them.
‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ opens in theaters May 6.
