Time to explore the multiverse in Doctor Strange 2, and break down all those little nods and clues along the way.
Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness is in theaters now, after a handful of delays and a whopping six years since the first Doctor Strange movie. The MCU is a very, very different place now as we progress through Phase 4, so naturally the jokes, references, and Easter Eggs are a bit different than what you might have been expecting. There actually aren’t a ton of plot-critical references to other MCU movies or shows, with the exception of some details from WandaVision you might like filled in–but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty of ground to tread and spoilers to break down.
We picked out our favorite of the references, Easter Eggs, and Marvel Comics nods from the movie to break down, and in doing so we’re going to be getting into some major spoiler territory. Please proceed with caution if that’s something you’re trying to avoid!
With all these disparate pieces now floating around the multiverse, cooking up theories and guesses as to where things are going is getting more tricky than ever–so using what we know know, as well as the roster of newly introduced characters and that post-credits scene–and the details listed here, where do you think Phase 4 is headed? Do you have any major guesses for a Thanos-level villain? Let us know in the comments below.
