The existence of a multiverse means potentially infinite variations of each person in that multiverse. It was vanity that allowed Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield to show up to help Tom Holland in Spider-Man: No Coming Homeand that’s the basis of everything Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Marvel has made it clear that there are multiple versions of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dr. Strange in the movie, and in the latest trailer for the movie, there’s at least four different versions. And these are just the most obvious.
Besides the traditional MCU Doctor Strange, there’s also a guy in armor and a ponytail (Marvel calls him “Defender Strange”), a villainous Strange with a third eye sticking out of the middle of his head, and an even more Maleficent. Strange looking zombie from one of Sam Raimi’s alumni evil Dead movies. And of course, that’s just the Dr Stranges. (Dr. Stranges? Doctors Strange?) There will also be multiple Wanda Maximoffs, and who knows who else in the movie as well.
Take a look at the new teaser below:
