Doctor Strange 2 promo art gives the best look at the Defender Strange variant
The Marvel Cinematic Universe is gradually releasing variations of our favorite heroes and villains, with a sequel coming soon Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ready to speed things up well beyond even eleven o’clock. Thanks to the recent trailer, we now know that Doctor Strange 2 will present the dark version of the MCU hero, known as Strange Supreme, who was first introduced to the public in the Disney + series What if…?, with new merchandise now revealing that another variant of The Master of the Mystic Arts will also be involved in Multiversal Madness: Defender Strange.
Previewed in recent footage, this new promotional art gives us our best look yet at this mysterious alternate version of Doctor strange. Thanks to Twitter users @DrStrangeUpdate and @preterniadotcomwe can see that Defender Strange will be sporting a completely different costume, as well as a different beard alongside a rather alluring ponytail. The artwork depicting Defender Strange has been spotted alongside the new Marvel Legends toy.
But who is Defender Strange, and how he and his luscious new hairstyle will play a role Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness? By name, it’s likely that this Doctor Strange variant came from a universe in which he is a member of the superhero team, The defenders. Created by Roy Thomas and Ross Andru in 1971, the line-up is made up of several familiar faces alongside Strange, including Hulk, Namor, The Silver Surfer, and Valkyrie. While they resist being a formal team like The Avengers, The Defenders often unite to thwart major threats.
Although the role Defender Strange will play in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently unknown, with characters like The Scarlet Witch and Strange Supreme lined up as the villains of the sequel, our Doctor Strange is sure to need all the help he can get. Much like the recent MCU release, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness could see Strange teaming up with alternate versions of himself, with Defender Strange’s presence potentially being used not only to introduce other characters like Namor and Silver Surfer, but even to inspire the original Strange to form his own team. of superheroes.
Directed by Sam Raimi from a screenplay written by Jade Halley Bartlett and Michael Waldron, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange, alongside Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Elizabeth Olsen and Xochitl Gomez. Following the multiversal chaos caused by the two Spider-Man: No Path Home and the Disney + series Loki, the sequel finds Dr. Stephen Strange tackling the ramifications of using a forbidden spell that opens the door to a mysterious madness called “The Multiverse.”
To restore a world where everything changes, Strange enlists the help of his ally Wong, now The Sorcerer Supreme, and the most powerful member of the Avengers, Wanda Maximoff AKA The Scarlet Witch. But, with the multiverse unleashed, a terrible threat hangs over humanity – and she looks exactly like Doctor Strange. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is slated for release on May 6, 2022, as part of MCU Phase Four.
