With less than a month to go until the grand opening of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in the cinemas, the fandango released a new promotional video for the film with several never-before-seen footage and cast commentary. One of the most intriguing lines is said by director Sam Raimi: “We wanted to give fans what they wanted, but not quite what they expected.“.
The new footage shows Doctor Strange Defender, one of Strange’s variants, fleeing a mysterious monster with America Chavez by his side. Wanda Maximoff, meanwhile, appears once more bloodied fighting what appears to be a Captain Marvel Variant. Wong is also featured in the new 2-minute video, and appears to be in danger when facing a threat that wasn’t shown in the scene.
Benedict Cumberbatch says: “Where We’re Going With This Movie Is Marvel’s Most Fantastic New Phase“. Next, Elizabeth Olsen explains that “in this story we are jumping into different universes but unlocking the multiverse creates a big pandora’s box“. And Benedict Wong adds: “You open the door and we don’t know who or what is going to walk through it. We’re in uncharted territory.
For his part, director Sam Raimi says: “Telling these stories was a huge effort. It had to be big because it would not only serve to paint a picture of our universe, but of several universes.”
