This is Doctor Strange. In fact, WandaVision should be some kind of preamble to Doctor Strange in the Multiversum of Madness slated to hit theaters in March 2022, as Elizabeth Olsen (who therefore plays Wanda Maximoff) plays an important role. In turn, fans marveled at the presence of Doctor Stephen Strange on the Disney + series, which in just four weeks was still number one on the world’s most popular series.

“We didn’t want the ending of the series to be trivialized to bridge the gap with the next movie. We didn’t want to land this white guy who wanted to explain things to Wanda in mode: let me show you how you do Power Works. “Feige confessed.
As a result, Doctor Strange 2 also had to be rewritten by the Rolling Stone writers, including the passage where Wanda and Strange land.
