Oh yeah Sam Raimi’s directing this. Totally forgot that little nugget. In case you didn’t know Sam Raimi is the revolutionary mind behind the Evil Dead series and the original Spider-man trilogy.
So let’s set the setting. Dr. Strange will have no idea that there are possible rifts in the multiverse because Peter Parker never existed(Oops spoilers for No Way Home) therefore Dr. Strange doesn’t remember ripping open the multiverse with him. Leaving Dr. Strange very vulnerable to any multiversal entities or dangers. But from the trailer it looks like Wanda will give into her darker side and the Scarlet Witch will be attempting to find her kids and possibly Vision within the multiverse.
A witch stealing your kids. That’s an old school scary story old as time right there.
We see Stephen Strange meet Evil Dr. Strange while we see possible events that occurred within the life of Dr. Strange’s variant across the multiverse (this concept has a whole series devoted to it. Go check out Loki on Disney+). It appears that America Chavez has arrived within the trailer. Her ability to navigate and travel the multiverse will make her crucial to this movie.
We then see various scenes and here someone say “we must tell him the truth” this voice being Sir Patrick Stewart the one and only mothaluvin Proffesor Charles Xavier. Leader of the X-men ya’ll!
Bringing in Patrick Stewart must just be a scene in which Dr. STRANGE is visiting an X-men 21ST Century Fox Universe
If Logan (Wolverine) remains dead in this universe then maybe this scene may lead to an introduction of new versions of iconic X-men as well as have some characters such as Deadpool hop on into the main Marvel Cinematic Universe. We all know Ryan Reynolds will be lassoed into a team up at some point. And I’m here for it. Even the idea of a Deadpool and Rocket Raccoon movie would be sweet. Just allow Rocket to break the 4th wall in Deadpool movies. You wont..
Throughout the trailer we see three main antagonists surface. Baron Mordo, Scarlet Witch, and Evil Dr. Strange.
I dont believe that this evil dr. Strange is the same exact one from the Marvel What If… series. It very well could be one of millions of Evil stranges just like Kang said in the Loki series.
With these three villains on full display throughout the trailer I have to imagine that the Nexus Event referenced in WandaVision, will take place. And introduce mutants into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This is going to be a course altering film in the MCU. Day 1 ticket for sure.
