After months of waiting, the first MCU movie of 2022 is almost here – and it’s sure to be epic. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnesscoming on the heels of Spider-Man: No Coming Home, has to be one of Marvel Studios’ most ambitious offerings yet. Just look at the slew of major characters featured in this new sequel poster.
With only 10 days – yes, really – until it hits theaters, Marvel shared one last poster for Doctor Strange 2 which spotlights Doctor Strange, his friends and foes, not to mention their many variants that will feature in the film. While most of them are decipherable, some numbers are deliberately hidden. So, fan sleuths, do your thing.
This latest poster highlights how much more of an ensemble piece this one will be than the first. strange doctor, with star appeal top billing crediting Benedict Cumberbatch (Stephen Strange), Elizabeth Olsen (Scarlet Witch), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Karl Mordo), Benedict Wong (Wong), Xochitl Gomez (America Chavez), Michael Stuhlbarg ( Nicodemus West) and Rachel McAdams (Christine Palmer).
While the others appeared prominently in the promo, Stuhlbarg’s credit here is a bit of a surprise as it suggests he’ll have a larger role in the movie than expected. It seems likely that West, a former neurosurgeon rival to Strange, could be Christine’s husband, as trailers have seen her walking down the aisle in white.
And, remember, these guys are just the tip of the iceberg as we’re expecting a slew of familiar face cameos from across the Marvel movie multiverse. So far Patrick Stewart’s Professor X and the Illuminati have been confirmed, but bets are good there will be plenty more where they came from.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, from director Sam Raimi, will be making magic in theaters starting May 6.
