Many thought that the recent dismissal of Scott Derrickson would delay the production of the feature film, but according to the Journal du Geek, the Doctor Strange 2 already won even synopsis. Check out:
Since the end of third phase of the MCU, with Spider-Man: Far From Home, The Marvel has been working on new productions to keep fans’ expectations from cooling down. A few days after Scott Derrickson’s resignation from the Doctor Strange 2, an important feature for the beginning of fourth phase of the MCU, Marvel has already revealed the synopsis of the second part of the adventures of the Dr. Strange. On the Production Weekly, it is possible to see what the feature film has in store for us. Doctor Strange: In the Multiverse of Madness, will once again focus on Jewel of Time.
After the events of Avengers: Endgame, The Dr. Stephen Strange continues his research on the Jewel of Time. But an old friend who became an enemy seeks to destroy all sorcerers on Earth and interrupts his plans, which leads Strange to release an unspeakable evil.
The synopsis raises several questions about the context of the story. After Avengers: Endgame, the Infinity Stones were destroyed or returned to their original size. Therefore, it seems unlikely that the Dr. Strange we know is with the stone, unless he has made a journey through time or other dimensions. Thus, Dr. Strange could introduce the principle of the Multiverse, long touted as the logical continuation of the MCU. Recent rumors about the connection between the series Loki and Doctor Strange 2, could explain this reversal of the situation.
Playing as villain
As suggested in the post-credit scene of the first part, Dr. Strange could face Mordo in In the Multiverse of Madness. The synopsis phrase “friend, become enemy”Suggests that the character would have turned into a villain and could very well hinder the former surgeon. In the comics, Mordo often faced Dr. Strange and this fight could take place in theaters this time.
It is still too early to say that this is the definitive synopsis for Doctor Strange 2. It could be the first version of the script and Scott Derrickson’s departure may have led Marvel to review his film. The film is expected in theaters in May 2021.
