Doctor Strange 2 posters spotlight a trio of weird variants
Several new vibrant and psychedelic posters for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness showcase a trio of Doctor Strange variants. Posted by Redwolf, the kaleidoscopic nature of the work offers our final look at the MCU’s already established Doctor Strange alongside Strange Supreme (also known as Evil Doctor Strange) and the ponytailed Defender Strange, whose role in the plot is still largely unknown. .
Much like the recent multiversal record craze Spider-Man: No Coming Homeit looks more and more like the next one strange doctor The sequel will see the master of the mystical arts come face to face with alternate versions of himself. Of course, unlike the last Spider Man adventure, Doctor Strange doesn’t have the same cinematic heritage as the beloved wall-crawler, and so every variant of the Good Doctor will be portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch. Something that should give the extremely talented comedian plenty of opportunities to stretch his acting muscles as he goes from good to great to bad with every change of beard.
The first of two variants, Strange Supreme, was introduced in the anime series What if…?, and finds Stephen Strange turning to magic and mysticism after losing his girlfriend Christine Palmer in a car crash. While he begins with heroic intentions, he quickly turns to the Dark Dimension in hopes of finding a way to resurrect it, absorbing all manner of terrifying interdimensional beasts.
Defender Strange, meanwhile, has yet to be introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but we can turn to the comics for clues. Thanks to the name, it’s safe to assume that Defender Strange will be a member of the superhero team, The Defenders, a line-up made up of several familiar faces alongside Strange, including Hulk, Namor, The Silver Surfer, and Valkyrie. Defender Strange’s role is mostly unknown, but our Strange and the Defender can team up to defeat Strange Supreme. Or, could Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness surprise, uniting all three versions of Strange against another foe. The Scarlet Witch, perhaps?
