The full trailer of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness dropped during the 2022 Super Bowl. And it has opened up a bunch of mind-bending questions. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen and more, the Sam Raimi directorial is all set to venture right into the multiverse. Between “Sinister Strange”, evil Wanda and a huge cameo hint that fans think is connected to an X-Men crossover, there is a lot to dissect.
The second trailer of Doctor Strange 2 gives us a glimpse into the sorcerer’s greatest, most mysterious adventure yet. It opens with a nightmare and a montage of utter mayhem till Stephen Strange wakes up to his own nightmare. He must now confront the fall-out from the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home. We later see him handcuffed in a futuristic setting where a voice can be heard saying, “We should tell him the truth,” and it sounds a lot like Patrick Stewart. Marvel nerds, it’s happening, Professor Charles Xavier could be returning to the MCU hopefully, along with 20th Century Fox’s X-Men. Apart from teasing the huge possible crossover, the footage also gives us a look at Wanda’s dark counterpart, the evil variant of Doctor Strange that resembles the one we saw in What If…? and a curious glowing figure. The trailer ends with a deeply disturbing shot of a variant that looks like a zombie.
Check out the trailer that has sparked multiple fan theories within hours of its arrival:
Did Marvel just confirm Professor X’s comeback? There’s no telling since we did not get a clear shot of Patrick Stewart in the trailer. But fans of the X-Men movies from the ‘00s will recognise this voice instantly. It’s unmistakable.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the next best Marvel film since Spider-Man: No Way Home. It’s also the next outing for Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch since Disney Plus’ WandaVision. The show also saw a cameo of X-Men star Evan Peters who plays Wanda’s brother Pietro. Looks like it’s all coming together.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will release on May 6, 2022.
