It's the biggest MCU Phase 4 spoiler so far, and it's a twist to the plot we've never seen coming - BGR
Little is known about what Marvel is working on regarding its Marvel Cinematic Universe storyline. The studio confirmed that it was working on the next massif End of Game kind of movie, but it will take years to get there. After the events of Avengers 4, we need new heroes to lead the team, and we're waiting to find new villains, including the main ones who will replace Thanos. Marvel will do everything it can to prevent leaks, and we don't expect to know too much detail about upcoming MCU Phase 4 movies and TV shows until Marvel wants it. Despite this, the first major twist in the Phase 4 plot might have just leaked, and it's such huge spoiler that you may want to avoid for the time being.
Marvel is in the process of launching a movie in the UK right now, which happens to be the most interesting phase 4 movie given everything we've heard about it. Marvel already told us that the film would feature heroes we hadn't seen coming, and that two TV shows would be linked to it, including Loki et WandaVision. Rumors also say this will be the first time the X-Men will appear in an MCU film, with Deadpool and Wolverine both supposed to get cameos. If you haven't guessed yet, proven Dr. Strange in the multiverse of madness.
Scott Derrickson may not lead Strange doctor 2, but that doesn't mean that production will stop or that the film won't be ready in time for the May 7, 2021 launch date.
according to Behind the scenesThe casting of Marvel is underway for the sequel, which should start shooting this summer in the United Kingdom. What's interesting Behind the scenes report is that it actually offers a pretty revealing synopsis for Strange 2:
After the events of Avengers: End of the game, Dr. Stephen Strange continues his research on the time stone. But an old friend turned enemy ends his plans and causes Strange to unleash unspeakable evil.
That's a lot of information here, as the unofficial summary provides two important details about the future of the MCU. First, Strange isn't happy about losing the Time Stone - a quick reminder that the Thanos in the main MCU timeline destroyed the Stones, turning them into dust at first End of Gameand the Infinity Stones that the Avengers stole have been brought back to the timeline they belong to.
The fact that Strange is studying Time Stone is a fantastic detail about the future of the MCU, assuming this synopsis is accurate. Can someone recreate the Stones soon? This detail "old friend turned enemy" is also fascinating. This person apparently will force Strange to "unleash an unspeakable evil", which already makes me want to know more.
Who exactly is this old friend? Strip cartoon speculates that Baron Karl Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) might be a good candidate. But another possibility is Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), who is confirmed to appear in the film. It is not exactly an old friend of Strange, but then, who knows how they measure time. Which is pretty clear after End of Game is that Wanda is the most powerful Avenger right now, something Kevin Feige said at a recent question and answer event.
Sources close to the matter told We have covered that Wanda will indeed turn to the dark side, so to speak, after the events of the next Disney + series WandaVision:
Specifically, we are told that by the time the film starts, Wanda begins to go mad and lose her mind because of what happens at the end of the aforementioned Disney Plus show. Her powers are also increasing, and as mentioned above, she is influenced by Nightmare. Her powers begin to bore a hole in reality and she desperately tries to recover her children, which she loses at the end of WandaVision when Nightmare makes her realize that the reality that she created for herself is not real and destroys it.
This puts Wanda on a dangerous path and although she will not exactly be considered a full-fledged villain in Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness, her desire to use her dangerous powers to bring her children back combined with the sinister influence Nightmare's will certainly make her an enemy for Doctor Strange, with the Supreme Sorcerer said to try to reshape reality to what it was with his magic and stop her and Nightmare.
We have already seen speculation that the children of Wanda with Vision may not be real, which makes sense given that Vision is dead. If all of this is true, then the next Strange doctor sequel might turn out to be a pivotal MCU event, perhaps just as important to the main story as Civil war was because it could set the stage for a massive confrontation X-Men vs Avengers. It is interesting to note that such a scenario would be in preparation for a future Avengers after.
