The trailer presented new glimpses of Elizabeth Olsen’s character of Scarlet Witch potentially embracing the chaos and becoming the main villain of this movie. The clip also featured a brief audio cameo from what sounded very much like Patrick Stewart reviving his role as Professor X from the ‘X-Men’ series.
One scene in particular that featured Wanda fighting another superhero has also caught fans’ attention. Many have taken to Twitter to debate whether Wanda was fighting off Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel or her potential Variant or even Teyonah Parris‘ Monica Rambeau who made her debut in ‘WandaVision’.

The first standalone sequel to ‘Doctor Strange’, the film follows the Sorcerer Supreme’s efforts to deal with the aftermath of the multiverse-distorting spell that he had cast in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’, a dangerous move resulting in villains from across the multiverse to bleed into the central Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline.
The film is also set after the events that occur in ‘WandaVision’ and ‘Loki’, and portrays Doctor Strange teaming up with Wanda Maximoff, until things seemingly take a dark turn.
‘Multiverse of Madness’ also stars Benedict Wong as Wong, Rachel McAdams as Dr Christine Palmer and Chiwetel Ejiofor as Karl Mordo. Xochitl Gomez is set to make her MCU debut as America Chavez with the film, which is directed by Sam Raimi.
The script for the film has been written by Michael ‘Loki’ Waldron and Jade Halley Bartlett. The film will arrive in theatres on May 6 after a year-long delay due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
