Doctor Strange Gets A Surprising Haircut In The Multiverse Of Madness
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the next Marvel Studios film as it prepares to take fans on a journey through the multiverse. As we saw in Loki and Spider-Man: No Path Home, the Marvel multiverse is filled with an endless number of doppelgangers and variations. If the promotional material for Multiverse of Madness is one indication, these two projects listed above are just the tip of the iceberg.
As the teaser for Sam Raimi’s movie shows, it will feature more than one version of Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). There’s the regular master of the mystical arts we’ve come to know and love over the past six years, then at least two more, one who may or may not be the villain, and another version taking inspiration from a beloved Defenders Course.

Now that some people have got their hands on Hasbro’s hugely popular wave of Marvel Legends to support the film, Strange’s full third look has been revealed – and it has a surprising new style. The figure based on “Defender Strange” features a ponytail, similar to the appearance of Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen) in the first Doctor strange movies.
“Very excited. Sam Raimi is at the helm, so expect some amazing things,” Cumberbatch said of the film in October. “And yes, we’re making it even better: we have covers coming in November and December, and it’s coming out in May. And I guess you’ll have to wait until then… that’s all you get.”
Multiverse of Madness has also just wrapped up filming a number of revivals, potentially meaning more versions of the Wizard could end up appearing.
“The covers are the key to our films, starting with Iron Man. We always say we’re smart filmmakers at Marvel, but we’re not geniuses and the best way to give ratings on a movie is to watch the movie, “Feige said in 2019.” So we make the movie and come on, ‘Oh yeah, no that’s not true. It doesn’t work, “and now have a system that can be quite precise and efficient. [Reshoots last] sometimes a day, sometimes a fortnight, sometimes more to keep moving forward and doing the best possible. “
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse Madness will be released in theaters on May 6, 2022. What other characters do you think will eventually appear in the next feature film?
