‘Spider-Man 3’ explains why Doctor Strange wasn’t in ‘WandaVision’

The text below contains SPOILERS!

Anyone who has watched ‘WandaVision’ knows that Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) was one of the most anticipated characters on the show, but ended up not showing up.

For this reason, audiences were extremely disappointed, as they expected a connection between the series and the events of the upcoming “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”.

As the series ends with Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) unleashing powerful chaos magic against witch Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn), fans continue to wonder why Strange didn’t stop her.

The answer is simple and is explained in ‘Spider-Man: No Return Home’.

When Peter Parker (Tom Holland) visits the Sanctum Sanctorum, he calls Strange the ultimate mage, but the wizard explains that the title was passed on to Wong (Benedict Wong) after Strange was blunted by Thanos (Josh Brolin).

As a master of the mystical arts, rather than the ruling Supreme Mage, Strange may have been banned from interfering with Wanda’s plight on the outskirts of Westview, New Jersey.

Enjoy watching:

In the movie, we see that Strange doesn’t challenge Wong as the trailer suggests: instead, Wong grants Strange permission to cast a spell and make the whole world forget that Peter Parker is Spider-Man.

Wong’s only condition is that Strange leaves him out while on vacation in Kamar-Taj.

That way, it’s not hard to imagine that Wong also chose to stay out of Wanda’s adventures to avoid the devastating consequences of the character’s fate.

Either way, Strange and Wanda will reunite in ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’.

Set to premiere in May 2022, the sequel directed by Sam Raimi will also feature the return of Chiwetel Ejiofor and Rachel McAdams.

By the way, the teaser for the feature is premiering alongside “Spider-Man: No Return Home,” so we’ve decided not to get him drunk here on the site out of respect for Marvel Studios and Sony Pictures.

As we’ve seen the movie before, we’ve got a description of the teaser WITH SPOILERS below, which you may read at your own risk:

The teaser begins with Stephen Strange echoing his lyrics from the Spider-Man: No Return Home trailer, where he explains how the “Multiverse is a concept we know terribly little”. He appears in a distorted version of New York City. We hear what sounds like Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) telling him that his “desecration of reality will not go unpunished,” Strange replying that this was the only way.

We get a look at who will star in the sequel, including Wong (Benedict Wong), Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams) on her wedding day, and America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez).

We then switch the action to the film’s other big name, Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), who is now seemingly living an idyllic life, waiting for the day Strange comes to see her after his attempts to play at home go horribly wrong. badly gone to WandaVision. To your surprise, however, he asks for your help with the Multiverse.

From here we see a montage of photos featuring Mordo’s new look, Wanda cradling her new look as a Scarlet Witch, Kamar-Taj seemingly under attack and Strange and America Chavez battling a multiversal being on the streets of New York City, and by Last but not least, the reveal of the main villain – Doctor Strange himself.
