Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will open up the multiversal possibilities of the MCU and deliver a truly mind-blowing adventure. The excellent Super Bowl trailer hinted that the “first” MCU Strange might face off against Strange Supreme What if…?, with the consequences of his spell Spider-Man: No Way Home come back to bite his ass.
Now, a new line of Monogram International keychains could confirm that we’re getting at least two more Strange variants: “Defender Strange” and “Supreme Strange” (which is quite different from “Strange Supreme”). Look at her:
It’s not yet clear exactly what role these variants will play, although no one seems happy to see the MCU Strange mess with the memories of everyone in the multiverse to fix Peter Parker’s social life. It also seems very likely that there will be more surprises.
These keychains do not feature Patrick Stewart’s Professor X, nor any other characters rumored to be from the extensive roster of live-action pre-MCU films. These include Ioan Gruffudd’s Reed Richards from Fox’s The fantastic Four Movies from the mid-2000s, Thomas Jane’s Frank Castle/Punisher and – in a rather long take – Tom Cruise as a Tony Stark variant.
Any or all of them would bring the house down if Doctor Strange 2 releases, but if Marvel Studios really pushes the boat out that far, the film could risk feeling like a procession of cameos. But with Sam Raimi at the helm and an incredibly talented cast, it’s almost certain that we’re in for some fun times.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits theaters on May 6th.
