Meanwhile we tell you, Multiverse of Madnessby Raimi (trilogy Spider-Man 2002-07, Evil Dead), is called by Marvel the first MCU production to be somewhat horror-oriented.
On this vision, and prior to the theatrical release of the sequel, we had little taste in the promotional material, as was the case with the first teaser trailer released at the end of December 2021, and in the first full trailer released the weekend of Super Bowl LVI, where we saw an evil version of Doctor Strange, which, from keeping up with the Disney+ animated series What If? you will be familiar with it.
The “good version” of Strange teams up with Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch to face the monsters and villains that the multiverse has let loose around the world, as we saw in the events portrayed in WandaVision, Loki and more recently, Spider-Man: No Way Home.
- In case you missed it: To understand why Strange and Wanda will be working side by side in the sequel, you need to watch the series. WandaVision.
