Scott Derrickson, the director and co-writer of Doctor Strange, had plans for a sequel by October 2016. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is an upcoming American superhero film based on Marvel Comics’ Doctor Strange. The film receives a new trailer during the Super Bowl, revealing that other non-MCU films are now part of the universe.

According to Screen Rant, A new trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has been released as a result of the Super Bowl. Phase 4 has come a long way since its inception, but 2022 will be even more intense, thanks to the Marvel Multiverse. Following Spider-Man: No Way Home, which brought together three generations of the web-slinger, the Doctor Strange sequel will continue that trend.

The Sorcerer Supreme will deal with his own Multiverse storyline in the film starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Details for Doctor Strange 2 have been kept under wraps, as with most MCU films. There have been numerous rumors that some intriguing Multiverse cameos will appear in Doctor Strange 2. What is certain is that Cumberbatch will be playing at least two different versions of Doctor Strange.

Following several rumblings, the Doctor Strange 2 trailer confirms that Sir Patrick Stewart will be reprising his role as Charles Xavier, a.k.a. Professor X, from the original X-Men films. Stewart also revealed in January 2021 that Marvel Studios had met with him about Professor X’s integration into the MCU, which added fuel to the rumors. Given that the captions list Stewart as “Mystery Voice,” it’s a classic Marvel Studios move to conceal who Stewart is playing. Since Kevin Feige confirmed the X-inclusion Men’s in the MCU years ago, it’s difficult to imagine who else Stewart could play.


After the massive success of Spider-Man: No Way Home, it would also make more sense for them to invest more in non-MCU films. That would explain why Doctor Strange 2 underwent extensive significant reshoots late last year, as the studio likely anticipated the reaction of fans seeing Tom Holland’s character alongside Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Men. Because the mystery voice says, “We should tell him the truth,” it strongly implies that there are others in the room with him. Stewart is likely to be joined by other familiar faces from either the FOX or Sony-Marvel films.

With Sam Raimi’s involvement as Doctor Strange 2’s director, perhaps this is how Maguire’s Spider-Man returns, which has also been a rumor since 2021. As Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness approaches its release date in less than three months, the Multiverse is about to reach a whole new level in Phase 4.
