Marvel’s Doctor Strange 2 Trailer Breakdown: Easter Eggs, Secrets

So many goodies!Gif: Marvel Studios

What started in WandaVision, grown in Loki, and really explodes in Spider-Man is now ready for his biggest moment on the big screen. The Multiverse is fully featured in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the next Marvel Studios movie slated for May 6, 2022. Legendary director Sam Raimi is at the helm this time and the first teaser, which also features attached as the scene after the credits after no way home, is now officially online. It’s short but packed with really intriguing teases, so let’s dive deep into it.

The trailer opens with dialogue from Spider-Man: No Way Home. Wong tells Strange not to cast the spell. Strange to tell Peter Parker how little they know about the multiverse. Slowly black turns into footage as the camera moves along what we believe to be the floor of Kamar-Taj and several candles go out.

We then see Strange in the reflection of a shattered watch. If you remember in the first movie, Strange has a large watch collection, so we’re guessing this isn’t just one of his watches, but something that broke in some sort of battle. He also wears a white shirt, possibly for the film’s wedding scene. Of course, the fracture pattern is also meant to remind us of the multiverse.

That image is then uttered by Mordo, Strange’s former friend turned villain, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor, last seen in the Doctor Strange credits and gaining new powers. He says, “Your desecration of reality will not go unpunished.” We must think he’s talking about the events of No Way Home, but we’re not sure. It could be something in this movie. But more importantly, is Mordo back with the wizards? It looked like he was going to break down on his own, although things may have changed during the entire Thanos incident. We don’t know what he’s been up to.

G/O Media may receive a commission

Strange comes out of a snowy New York alley and faces the street; although at first glance it may seem that this is our reality, buildings look dilapidated and fold over each other. Has he arrived in a new dimension? Is this the mirror dimension? Something is very wrong.

“It was the only way,” Strange says. But was it? Referring to No Way Home, which the trailer suggests, he didn’t have to enchant Peter Parker. He chose it and did it very haphazardly. Anyway, Strange walks up the steps of a version of the Sanctum Sanctorum, which appears abandoned and is also flooded inside and out. This does not resemble our reality. “I never intended for this to happen,” he says.

Several quick cuts take place, starting with Strange reaching for the trademark window at the top of the Sanctum. Again, we believe this is the regular Strange, but that more leathery material makes it look like it’s the evil Strange from the end of the trailer. That’s followed by Strange standing in the street watching what is likely Shuma-Gorath from the altar in the trailer, followed by some quick clips of Wanda’s hand getting ready to unleash some power, then Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams ) at a wedding.

Strange is at the wedding, but not as a groom. Bride Christine walks past him, as does fellow surgeon Nicodemus West, played by Michael Stuhlbarg, and it seems Strange has lost his girl after all. At least she’s alive. What if…? showed what could happen if it didn’t. And it wasn’t good.

Several quick cuts follow, including a raven (we have no idea about this one) and a woman in a star coat. This is almost certainly the American Chavez played by Xochitl Gomez. She pops up a lot in this trailer, but is never directly mentioned. We think she plays a big part and here she is slowly creeping through what appears to be Kamar-Taj.

There’s a quick shot of Wong in shackles scared of something, then a version of Doctor Strange in a headband (possibly Defender Strange as revealed in this series of toys) fall through some sort of portal. Note, however, that this portal is star-shaped. It is possible that it has something to do with, or maybe even was made by, America.

And all this before the Marvel Studios logo, which is all broken, in case you didn’t know what was teasing all this.

Now we are in a remote field, full of white-flowered trees. Wanda Maximoff is here and the first thought is that this is the location we saw her flee to during the end credits of WandaVision. However, this is much more open and comprehensive. There are even sheep in the background of a few shots. Is this a new reality that Wanda has created? Or did she just buy a bigger piece of land?

Strange arrives and Wanda says she was expecting him, with her little accident enslaving hundreds of people in a small town. Strange isn’t there to talk about Westview, though. He’s there to talk about multiversa and tell her that “we” need Wanda’s help. Who are we?” Is it him and Wong? Someone else? Him and America? It’s unclear. But Wanda turns to him with a look of fear knowing.

As we continue from the beautiful green field, a door opens to what appears to be some sort of ship or submarine. It opens into a purple and pink world with a floating platform in the middle. In the center of the platform, a bright light is held in place by a column. Is this some kind of central power source of the multiverse or something?

However, in the doorway and behind Strange are two women. One appears to be American Ch├ívez, and the other is… unclear. Most likely it’s Wanda, but it almost looks like Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster? Could it also be Christine? Wanda makes the most sense from where the trailer was before that, but Strange definitely has two female companions on this part of the adventure. The door floats in this space and is surrounded by all kinds of ruins, mostly of old buildings. This is a place where broken things go, which reminds us a bit of where Kang lives, and where things get destroyed, from Loki’s finale.

That comes down to Mordo wearing some new dreadlocks and telling Strange he’s sorry. Probably for what to do to him for his mistakes. A cloud of smoke quickly sweeps across the courtyard of Kamar-Taj; Strange and Wong, now unchained, look up to it with fear.

We get a glimpse of Wanda, back in full Scarlet Witch outfit, sitting in a circle of candles. She’s on a very geometric symbol that we don’t recognize, but in the order of editing she’s probably in Kamar-Taj.

Mordo continues to talk to Strange about a series of images where he is brandishing a sword at a person who looks like Strange, although his hands are tied. The dark blue outfit suggests this could be the evil Strange as of the end of the trailer.

That is followed by a series of coordinated explosions outside Kamar-Taj. There are several characters, most of which are indistinguishable in the trailer, but a large beastly character in probably the minotaur wizard Rintrah, who also has his own toy.

That’s followed by an injured Wong who deliberately looks up. In the next shot, Strange is back at the New York Sanctum with the glass symbol shattered behind him and all his belongings dusty, unleashed a sort of spell much more like Wanda’s magic than Strange’s, but not the way they usually do. pronounces .

Then, back in Kamar-Taj, Strange unleashes another spell that looks like two snakes coming out of his hands. America is behind him.

That then comes down to Shuma-Gorath, a very evil, very crude Marvel villain, who throws a bus down Spring Street in New York City. Strange cuts it off with some of his magic and protects America, which is back behind him. How did she get there?

While all this is happening, Mordo has spoken, “I hope you understand,” Mordo says. “The greatest threat to our universe…is you.” Strange and Mordo are upstairs in the Sanctum, looking at some sort of huge, smoky portal. And on the “are you” we see a “evil” Doctor Strange. “It just got out of hand,” says this evil Strange, as an injured (some sort of scratch?) Strange squinted in confusion.

The obvious thinking here is that this is Strange Supreme from What If…? but look…

The two are dressed differently. Strange Supreme has the large collar, with gold in his robes. Not this one. We know there are already several Doctor Stranges in this movie, so while this might be the same from What If, it might as well be a completely new one.

I’m also not sure if the smoke portal from the previous shot (above) and the shot from Evil Strange (further above) align. As you can see, the Sanctum window is behind Evil Strange, but here the window has been replaced by this portal. Unless he’s in a dimension where it still exists. SO many possibilities!

That then goes over the title and release date, which means we’ll have a lot more time to dissect Doctor Strange trailers in the coming months.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness opens on May 6, 2022.
