While ‘Spiderman: Far From Home’ made the concept of the multiverse seem like nothing but a scam concocted by Mysterio, it appears that the villain was playing on something we’ll be seeing more of. With the next film about the Sorcerer Supreme being titled ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,’ it already felt like a concept that would become a reality. Now, Marvel Studios’ head honcho Kevin Feige has confirmed that it will be a significant part of the overall story moving forward in both films in the MCU and for the shows on Disney+.
The news came CCXP19 (via Comicbook):
“When we first started the MCU, it was all about Tony Stark. Introduce the world to Tony Stark and that Iron Man armor. Then [we] went on to teach people what Asgardians were and learn about super soldiers then bring them together in Avengers. I’ve always loved space movies, and I’ve always loved big intergalactic tales, which is why we did Guardians, and the audience came with us so we could do a movie like Endgame. I always wanted to do time travel, which we finally got to do in Endgame. The multiverse is the next step in the evolution of the MCU, and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is going to crack it open in ways that will have repercussions for a Disney+ series before it that’s not WandaVision and for movies after it in a big fun way.”
I’m sure we can all guess that the non-‘WandaVision’ Disney+ series he is referring to has to be ‘Loki’ as a way to bring the Trickster God back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe moving forward.
