When the dust unleashed by Spider-Man: No Way Home has settled, Marvel fans will have little time to recover before the release of the highly anticipated Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Sam Raimi's new fine comic starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth. Olsen.
Just the WandaVision actress nominated for the 2021 Emmy Awards is at the center of a new rumor about the plot of the film that emerged in the past few hours and that has already been able to send fans into fibrillation: according to what emerged first from the cryptic Grace Randolph and then from the more reliable Daniel Richtman, well known for his inside information, in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Wanda will fight against a character ex-Fox.
The scooper specifies that he is not authorized to reveal the identity of the mysterious character, but as you can see in the posts at the bottom of the article Randolph specifies that the reason for this fight is related to the fact that Wanda will be the villain of Doctor Strange 2, the suggestion that had already made its way in the past especially after the conclusion of the TV series WandaVision. Elizabeth Olsen herself has confirmed that Doctor Strange 2 will make different use of Scarlet, alluding to the possibility that the film actually ends up showing the 'dark side' of her magical superheroine.
This is certainly an attractive possibility for fans, but the number of potential candidates for the generic term 'ex-Fox character' is certainly not limited. The first to come to mind is undoubtedly Magneto, as in the comics the two were originally father and daughter.
The list goes on and on, especially when it comes to the X-Men: Cyclops, Jean Gray as Phoenix, Polaris, Wolverine, Rogue - it's certainly a hard circle to narrow down, and bringing up the characters related to the Fantastic Four. needle in the gigantic haystack would get smaller and smaller. Not to mention that Grace Randolph in her tweet also mentions 'Sony characters'. For the moment, therefore, the advice is to limit yourself to recording this statement and wait for further updates.
Recall that Benedict Cumberbatch recently talked about Doctor Strange 2: the actor will return in the role of the Sorcerer Supreme in Spider-Man: No Way Home, whose release is scheduled for December. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be released in March 2022.
