The first trailer for “Doctor Strange 2”
With the scarlet witch in the multiverse
In the first trailer for “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” the title hero has to deal with a powerful enemy: himself.
Spider-Man Peter Parker (Tom Holland, 25) has been making his way through Marvel’s multiple universes in “No Way Home” since December 16 in German cinemas. Another superhero is already heading to the “Multiverse of Madness”, Even if it’s only in the form of a first trailer. In the 2016 “Doctor Strange” sequel, which is set to hit theaters May 4, 2022, Benedict Cumberbatch (45) has a notable assistant: Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen, 32), better known as the powerful Scarlet Witch.
As is known, she recently made a lot of chaos with her Disney+ mini-series “WandaVision”. As a result, she didn’t think very carefully when the Sorcerer Supreme suddenly appeared in front of her nose in the trailer. “I made mistakes and people get hurt,” she says wistfully. But a stranger waves aside: “I’m not here to talk about Westview. We need your help. What do you know about the multiverse?”
Wanda experiences are badly needed. Because, as the end of the trailer indicates, Doctor Strange faces his most powerful opponent yet: an evil version of himself.
In addition to Cumberbatch and Olsen, Rachel McAdams (43) as Christine Palmer, Chiwetel Ejiofor (44) as Baron Mordeau and Benedict Wong (50) as Wong again in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.” The director is Sam Raimi (62), who once captured the “Spider-Man” trilogy with Tobey Maguire (46) in the film.
