Even if you haven't seen "Spider-Man: No Way Home" yet, you've likely seen the film's teaser trailer that broke viewership records. In that preview, we see Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) using his sorcery to alter the universe. As this wizard prepares his spell, Peter keeps trying to change it. He bombards Doctor Strange with interruptions until Strange loses control of the spell. This results in the fabric of the universe briefly pulling apart. In this instant, the multiverse was opened. And it's unclear what was let in or out. Today, Disney dropped the first teaser trailer for "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness," and it seems that Strange will have to deal with the repercussions of that spell. So, let's dive into the concept about which we know frighteningly little... the multiverse.
'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness': Teaser Trailer Breakdown
As Doctor Strange starts to explore the ripple effect that his sorcery has caused, he decides to try and enlist the help of a fellow Avenger. This Avenger has isolated herself and has been grieving since losing a loved one in battle at the hands of Thanos during "Avengers: Infinity War." Scarlett Witch aka Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) has been dealing with this pain in the unhealthiest of ways, which can be seen on the Disney+ show "WandaVision." Wanda is reluctant to see Doctor Strange as she thinks he's come to reprimand her for what she's done. But when she learns instead that Strange is seeking her help with the multiverse, she agrees to join him.
From there, we fast forward to Strange being reunited with his former colleague and lover Dr. Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams) as they open a door that leads to what we're assuming is the actual realm of the multiverse. As clouds begin to roll over the universe, a flood of action sequences and explosions begin. And then one bombshell announcement is revealed. We learn who the main villain of this story is. And it'll absolutely blow your mind! It's such a surprising adversary that we're not even going to tell you. We will tell you that you should also watch the Disney+ show "What If...?" as it looks like the events of that show may be playing out here. Click below on the new teaser trailer for "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" to find out who it is.
