If you thought that the last poster for Marvel’s highly anticipated Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was filled with Easter eggs, wait until you see this.
Friday, Empire Magazine unveiled a first look at its Doctor Strange issue and tweeted out two alternate covers. As you can image, both are beautiful, but they are also filled with some numerous hidden clues and details we’re still trying to decode.
You can take a look at the covers below!
In the last poster released officially by Marvel Studios, fans discovered allusions to Captain Carter and potentially even Deadpool, so we’re eager to see with sleuths will find this time around.
Directed by Sam Raimi, the film features the return of Academy Award-nominee Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular superhero, as well as Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, Benedict Wong as Wong, Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer, and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Mordo.
Xochitl Gomez is the only confirmed addition to the cast. She’ll play the dimension-shattering superhero America Chavez. On the off-chance you couldn’t figure out who that mystery character who that mystery character talking to Strange was, it was Patrick Stewart! While he seems to be returning as Professor Charles Xavier, it’s unclear if he will be the same Professor X from the original X-Men from franchise, or if he’s a variant. Several other actors are expected to appear as well, though their roles remain shrouded in secrecy.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
“In Marvel Studios’ ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,’ the MCU unlocks the Multiverse and pushes its boundaries further than ever before. Journey into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies both old and new, traverses the mind-bending and dangerous alternate realities of the Multiverse to confront a mysterious new adversary.”
