Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness debuts a new featurette and six character posters.
“Unlock the Multiverse. Watch the brand new featurette for Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Experience it only in theaters May 6,” states the video description. Watch below.
The six character posters feature the stars of the movie including Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Xochitl Gomez.
“It’s pretty unfathomably exciting where we are going in this film. It’s the most fantastic new phase of Marvel,” says Cumberbatch in the feaurette.
Adds Elizabeth Olsen, “In this story, we are leaping into different universes but unlocking the Multiverse creates a big pandora’s box.”
Benedict Wong confirms lots of new characters, “We’re in unknown territory. I think audiences are going to be startled. All these other realities invite a plethora of all these new characters.”
Director Sam Raimi says the movie is big, “Telling the story was such a gigantic endeavor. It has to be large because it had to not only paint a picture of our universe but of multiple universes. It was a great opportunity to pair two of the most powerful superheroes together.”
Benedict Cumberbatch also recently talked to Empire Magazine about the scope of the movie.
“There’s a lot going on in it,” teases Cumberbatch. “It’s a big movie. It’s going to be an absolute riot. And if it brings off the level of ambition it’s got, we’re going to have success on the level of Spidey. There you go, I’ll put my flag in the sand.”
The film is described as a thrilling ride through the Multiverse with Doctor Strange, his trusted friend Wong and Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch.
