After the success of Spider-Man: No Way Home at the box office, Marvel Studios is ready for the Doctor Strange movie, which is anticipated to create a similar hype as that of the Spider-Man film. Doctor Strange has played a powerful character in the recent Spider-Man film, and the trailer for the upcoming film, ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’, was presented as the post-credits for the film. The trailer itself caught much attention, and Marvel’s next theatrical release is expected to perform as well as any other big Marvel film. This film will finally observe what Doctor Strange has been up to and how he tackles the issues like a convergence of different universes.

The plot of Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness
Since the trailer’s release, the fans have been going through it to analyse and obtain any possible clue that hints towards the plot of the movie. Marvel Studios is trying to keep the audience in the dark, keeping the movie’s plot under tight wraps. As seen in No Way Home, Strange’s attempt to cast a forbidden spell was the final blow to the stability of the Multiverse. Now that the multiverse is broken into madness and chaos, the wizard must team up with his magical friends to stop the biggest threat to the world, which is his evil version.
The trailer shows that Doctor Strange, knowing very little about the Multiverse, seeks the help of someone who somewhat knows of it. Strange teams up with Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda Maximoff and Xochitl Gomez’s America Chavez, along with Benedict Wong’s Wong, who is now the Sorcerer Supreme. The villain that appeared in the trailer was the evil version of Dr Strange, who might be the Doctor Strange Supreme that appeared in the Marvel Animated Series ‘What If’ on Disney Plus. With all the rumours piling up, this film will surely hit the Box Office hard if even half of them are true.
The synopsis on Marvel’s official Japanese website: An overview
The synopsis of the upcoming Doctor Strange film was released on Marvel’s official Japanese website that provides a general outlook on what to expect from the movie. The descriptions firstly confirmed that Doctor Strange, although he prefers working alone, is a part of the Avengers, along with Wong, Captain Marvel and Bruce Banner. It also confirms that the casting of ‘forbidden spell’ by Doctor Strange had broken the multiverse.
The events of reality being twisted and altered were first seen in WandaVision, Loki, and the What if series. It seems like all these events, combined with the events after Strange cast his spell, would ultimately result in the madness that we expect in the Multiverse. The synopsis also mentioned that the help of Wanda and Wong would not be enough, which points towards the appearance of America Chavez and Christine Palmer in the movie, which was also seen in the trailer. In simple words, we can expect a lot of cameos that would come in to help Dr Strange in the film.
Is Dr Strange the new central figure of the Avengers?
The crucial point raised in the synopsis was that as Robert Downey Jr’s Iron Man and Chris Evans’ Captain America have finally left after the battle in Endgame, Dr Strange is now expected to become the central figure of the Avengers. Doctor Strange is the strongest magician of them all, leaving him at a very high rank in the Avengers list. The upcoming movie will determine where the wizard stands.
Although Dr Strange is not a ‘team’ person as shown in the recent films, he has been showing tremendous leadership qualities, and him helping Tom Holland’s Spider-Man in No Way Home, which ultimately led to all this multiverse issue, showed that the magician also possesses a kind heart. However, now that he has a duo of two powerful wizards by his side, Wong, the Sorcerer Supreme and Wanda, who has realized her full Witch potential, the Marvel Universe is undoubtedly making its magical superheroes important.

The Director of Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness, Sam Raimi
The anticipation for the film doubles as it is being filmed under the supervision of one of the finest directors, the maker of Evil Dead and Toby’s Spiderman franchise Sam Raimi. The synopsis has praised the director’s efforts, in the end, in capturing this unique worldview that is expected to captivate the whole world. Raimi’s talent is new to no one, and as he has had several horror films directed before, which must be helping him in the direction and production of this movie, that might be the first Marvel horror movie.
The expectations are huge from this movie, and if it falls right on its expectations, this Marvel project will hit the skies. What a year this has been for Marvel fans. Let us all see what this next year brings for us.
