‘WandaVision’: Benedict Cumberbatch apologizes for not appearing in the series

Due to the various theories surrounding “WandaVision,” fans became convinced that Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) would make a series finale mentioning the Multiverse of Madness.

As Elizabeth Olsen has already been confirmed in the film, many believed that the events of the series would lead to the creation of the multiverse, which did not happen.

After the disappointment, even Cumberbatch himself felt sorry for the fans.

During an interview with YouTuber Jake Hamilton, the star joked and even apologized for not appearing on the show.

“I’m sorry to disappoint you, I’m sorry to disappoint the fans. It would have been a lot of fun to be on the show, I think you could find something to tie “WandaVision” to “Doctor Strange 2”. But this link will be explained later … Damn, I can’t say anything. We’ve been recording since last year and it’s very exciting, I’ll let it be explained.

Despite the fact that the Supreme Magician didn’t make a plot point in the series, one of the post-credit scenes shows Wanda in possession of Darkhold, a mystical book that hides interdimensional magical secrets.

Could this be the main link between the two productions?

While the answers remain under wraps, it’s worth remembering that Cumberbatch revealed to Collider some details about “ Doctor Strange in the Multivero da Madcura, ” one of the MCU’s most anticipated titles.

He also took the opportunity to talk about his experience with director Sam Raimi, praising his professional ethics.

“Sam, amazing. He’s very collaborative. It comes with the luggage of an icon. He’s an incredible force, especially in this genre. But he’s also so modest, so cool, grateful, you want to work with him. And, man, when he’s happy he knows he’s done something right. He’s good at getting you where you need to go. It was a very collaborative process. Our origin stories, I believe, and obviously the monsters that were the Avengers movies were part of the animation, but now you’re on your own. You are doing your best with what you already have ”.

New news from The Direct website suggests that the feature film could include a very interesting character in the plot: Rintrah.

The character, said to be played by Adam Hugill, is an interdimensional minotaur who has similar abilities to Stephen Strange (Cumberbatch).

Rintrah first appeared in Doctor Strange # 80, as he and his master, Enitharmon – a dinosaur-like wizard – were on a mission to mend a tear in the levitating cloak used by the hero.

Check out what we can expect from the sequel:

MULTIVERSE

The multiverse is a concept widely used in comics that allows multiple versions of Marvel characters to exist and experience their own stories. Several realities coexist in the thin line of the universe. Marvel played a prank on the audience by saying Mysterio (Jake Gyllenhaal) would be a character from another dimension [SPOILER], but we saw that it was just one of his illusions [SPOILER]. The point is, the multiverse has been commented on since Phase 2, when Doctor Erik Selvig (Stellan Skarsgård) slate showed several Easter Eggs, such as the Multiverse, Convergence, and Universe 616, in Thor: The Dark World (2013). The Quantum Realm itself, from virtually every movie involving Ant-Man, seems to fit into the concept of the multiverse. Finally, Doctor Strange himself was already involved in this concept in his original film. It was only a matter of time before it became the subject of a movie.

SUPREME MAGICIAN

With the death of the Ancient One, Doctor Strange became the Sorcerer Supreme. Grand head of the Order of Magi and guardian of our reality against interdimensional threats. But he already wore this title in 2016. Since then, it’s been 3 years, during which we only saw him as a secondary character in the Avengers movies. His movie 2 is the chance we have to see him to his full potential, with an emphasis on his new magical abilities and special powers.

If he’s ever been cool to see him multiply or throw Thanos against the mirror dimension, imagine what he can do in realities where time and space operate differently. It has gigantic visual potential. Thinking about the possibilities and imagining the spells he will use is part of the pre-movie fun.

Additionally, the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) will be in the movie. In other words, there’s a good chance he’ll serve as a mentor to the Marvetes’ favorite little witch. This is a function consistent with the character’s relevance, but one that has yet to be seen in theaters.

SCARLET WITCH

We’ve been following Wanda’s development since The Avengers: The Age of Ultron (2015). She has not only evolved as a person, but has also seen her powers increase exponentially over the years. No wonder she nearly crushed Thanos (Josh Brolin) in Ultimato. From “bizarre” to Manipulator of Jewels of Infinity, the Scarlet Witch comes closer and closer to her potential in comics, where she is able to control the likelihood of events. And with the WandaVision series that will directly influence the direction of this film, its powers are expected to be a fundamental part of the plot. I dare say we might even have our first contact with the Mutants in this movie.

BAD DREAM

Originally slated to be the villain of Doctor Strange’s first film, Nightmare is an interdimensional demon whose strength comes from fears of the human mind aroused during sleep.

Leader of the so-called Dimension of Dreams, the Nightmare does not have a defined gender, but it usually takes the form of a man dressed in green and an older appearance. It feeds on the energy that people release when they are afraid while sleeping. His powers depend on this energy, which is why he has already been involved in several clashes against Doctor Strange.

Extremely powerful, he prefers to tackle people with psychological issues or trauma in the past, as they are easier to suck in fear and pain. In fact, unlike most villains, this demon’s powers do not directly affect the rival’s physical body. The Nightmare has the ability to transport the Astral Body – the one the Elder (Tilda Swinton) stirred so much during her MCU appearances – to the Dream Dimension, where it brings the person’s mind to life. great fears and traumas, and can drive them crazy. Since fear is inherent in human beings, the nightmare is practically immortal.

In the comics, he was the first villain to face Doctor Strange. In theaters, actress Eva Green is invited to bring the demon to life.

HORROR

Marvel is looking to make films of several different genres that feature super powerful characters. There was a bank robbery movie, a war movie, humor, a space opera, a romantic comedy, a teenager and now … terror. At least, that’s what CEO Kevin Feige said at San Diego Comic Con. It should be remembered that the first Doctor Strange (2016) already had this proposal to be attracted to terror. Only now, with the resounding success of virtually every franchise, is he able to dare and even make the first 100% Marvel horror film.

And let’s face it, this is the perfect project for it. The interdimensional journey into the madness of the Multiverse has everything to offer frightening scenes. In addition, the main villain of the sequence has the main characteristic of hallucinating his victims with terrifying and endless nightmares. Additionally, director Scott Derrickson has made a name for himself in the genre of exorcisms and evil spirits. This is a great opportunity to scare the public.

‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ opens March 24, 2022
