Marvel Korea releases a new Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness that potentially includes a connection to the animated show, What If…?
A brand-new Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness trailer has been released, which might include a link to Marvel’s What If…? As its title suggests, the Sam Raimi-directed sequel will see Benedict Cumberbatch’s sorcerer traveling through various realities as he deals with the ramifications of his actions in Spider-Man: No Way Home. One of the realities he might find himself in was previously featured in the MCU’s first animated series.
Marvel Studios’ fourth show on Disney+ imagines how the Infinity Saga may have changed if one element in it panned out differently. While What If…? started with separate narratives, they all ultimately converged towards the end via a culminating narrative. In it, the Watcher (Jeffrey Wright) was forced to meddle after the Infinity Stones-powered Ultron (Ross Marquand) discovered the existence of other realities, motivating him to conquer them as well. Luckily, the Guardians of the Multiverse succeeded in defeating the villain. But despite that, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness might feature one of those animated settings in the sequel.

With roughly a month to go before Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness premieres, Marvel Studios is ramping up its marketing efforts, which include the release of an IMAX trailer from Marvel Korea. The clip features extended scenes, including a look at one of the movie’s settings, which looks similar to the Ultron-destroyed universe from What If…? Watch the video below:

The existence of “Sinister Strange” — a “corrupted and corroded” version, as well as, a zombie variant of the character previously confirmed that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will connect to the animated series. But this is the first time that there’s been a clear indication that the film will actually visit one of the realities featured in What If…? For context, the destroyed universe was debuted in the Ultron-centric episode where the robot succeeded in his original plans in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Only Black Widow from that timeline survived from the Avengers line-up, and in the end, the Watcher transferred to a different one where she can thrive. It’s uncertain if the film will dwell in this particular world; it’s still possible that it’s nothing more than a visual reference.
It’s been previously confirmed that America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) will be the one to teach Doctor Strange more about the multiverse. The pair encounter each other while they’re both being detained by the Illuminati. So, it makes sense that the sorcerer is with the new MCU hero as he goes through this adventure. What’s still unclear is Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch’s (Elizabeth Olsen) role in the narrative. Although marketing for the film shows off her tumultuous relationship with Doctor Strange, they might still team up in the end against Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ real villain.

Accidental movie and TV fan who is perpetually curious, Ana rekindled her love for writing and married it with everything pop culture. The result is a passionate writer who could ramble (and of course, pen) about films and series multiple hours a day. She has a soft spot for procedurals and old sitcoms (The Golden Girls!) but won’t dare watch any horror films although she’s (ironically) dying to see one. Though a bit late to the party and was an actual Force non-believer, she now finds the Star Wars franchise quite fascinating (fun fact: it was a crazy Jar Jar Binks/Sith theory that drew her in).
