Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Insanity It’s the next big multiverse movie in the MCU and the next title to hit theaters. We’ll have to wait until May 6 to see this story in theaters, but the movie is already the most talked about Marvel release of 2022. That’s because Doctor Strange 2 should offer a multiverse adventure even bigger than No way home.
The last Spiderman The movie only offered us a limited glimpse of the multiverse threats that the Avengers will have to deal with. The Strange doctor The sequel is where we will explore the multiverse in earnest, given that it is a movie that Marvel completely controls. Also like No way home, Multiverse of Madness will bring several exciting cameos, with new leaks showing us two potentially important Doctor Strange 2 characters.
Yes indeed, Significant spoilers will follow below.
The Doctor Strange 2 toys
Multiverse of Madness It should have been released on March 25, but then Marvel pushed it back to May 6. The studio needed new footage in the final months of 2021. Rumor had it that Marvel wanted to fix the story and add more cameos.
But you know what is not delayed exactly? The toy release schedule based on Multiverse of Madness. We’ve seen a few toy leaks so far, including puzzles, Lego sets, Marvel Legends figures, and collections that revealed various Doctor Strange 2 mysteries.
We’ve explained before that MCU merchandise won’t completely spoil the movie. First of all, the toy sets are only loosely based on MCU movies or TV shows. Second, re-fire as extensive as needed to Doctor Strange 2 it can bring massive changes to the plot of a movie.
With that in mind, I’ll remind you that the puzzle and Lego leaks revealed a huge Multiverse of Madness villain. That’s Shuma Gorath / Gargantus, a one-eyed octopus-like demon. We got a glimpse of this entity in the first Doctor Strange 2 trailer.
Then the leaks of the figures gave us a look at several other Multiverse of Madness characters, including some who also appeared in the trailer.
The new Multiverse of Madness leaks
The new leaks are also coming from Marvel Legends sets that are now available to pre-order online. People have found some of them in the wild and posted photos of them. The interesting thing in this case is that we are seeing images of the actors who play these characters.
Strange defender in the multiverse of insanity
First up, we have Defender Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), seen below.
Here’s how the description reads: “Doctor Strange is the Earth’s primary magical defender, protecting our dimension against supernatural threats from across the multiverse.”
That description is intended to mislead us. Defending Strange is not Doctor Strange. Or rather, it is not our Strange doctor. This is probably a version of Strange from a different timeline. He has a different outfit and a different hairstyle and goatee. Just like Strange Supreme has a different look in What if…?.
And yes, a version of Evil Strange is also in Multiverse of Madness. We already saw it in the first trailer of the film.
Next, we have the promo art for Master Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) below. It is also a Multiverse of Madness leak that comes from the Marvel Legends collection, although the description of Master Mordo is not available in the image below.
As was the case with the previous character leak, this is not the Mordo you expect. The MCU’s main Mordo will appear in Multiverse of Madness, as several leaks of the plot have said. People familiar with those leaks already know what will happen to the character, assuming those plot leaks are accurate and that Marvel hasn’t changed the story during new filming.
But Master Mordo will be a Supreme Sorcerer in a different universe, as the same plot leaks. We have already seen the character in the trailer, with the same suit and hairstyle as in this one Multiverse of Madness toy leak.
Master Mordo will be a member of The Illuminati, the Multiverse of Madness say the leaks of the plot. And we see him at odds with Primary Strange in the trailer, which is in line with those leaks.
These Marvel Legends figures are available to pre-order now, which means we’ll start seeing them in stores soon.
