Doctor Strange 2 Writer Explains the Multiverse’s High Emotional Stakes

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness writer Michael Waldron explains the emotional stakes that come with exploring the multiverse. The highly anticipated sequel to 2016s Doctor Strange is set to finally hit theatres next month and will see Benedict Cumberbatch return as Master of the Mystic arts Doctor Stephen Strange. Director Sam Raimi will put his own entirely unique spin on this latest MCU installment which will also see Elizabeth Olsen star as Wanda Maximoff Scarlet Witch while Chiwetel Ejiofor Rachel McAdams and Benedict Wong will also return to reprise their original roles.

The MCU has spent a much of Phase 4 establishing the concept of the multiverse all of which came to a head in Spider Man No Way Home in which Doctor Strange caused a major rift in the multiverse after Peter Parker interfered with his spell. This ultimately opened the door to any Marvel figure enabling them to cross over in the MCUs Sacred Timeline including Spider Man alumni Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield alongside a handful of non MCU villains. With Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness set to focus on the aftermath of No Way Home the first Doctor Strange 2 trailer previously glimpsed what appears to be alternate versions of characters such as Strange as well as the incredibly exciting return of Patrick Stewart who previously played Professor Charles Xavier in Marvel Foxs X Men films. Stewarts Professor X return confirmed that almost any characters from outside of the MCU could potentially make an appearance in Multiverse of Madness.

In a recent conversation with SFX Magazine via GamesRadar Waldron discussed how while the multiverse may be a fun concept it also comes with a number of emotional implications. Waldron opened up about how confronting the multiverse means hold[ing] up a mirror to the characters which makes for a complex task. Waldron continued that the multiverse ultimately shapes the emotional heart of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness plot before praising the cast for their talents in taking on the story.Waldron went on to say that in order to write Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness he watched the first Doctor Strange movie a number of times in order to ensure that Stephen and his story was at the centre. Waldron also served as the head writer on Marvels hit Disney+ series Loki which also offered major implications for the MCU as audiences continue to explore the multiverse going forward with the final episode bearing witness to the destruction of the Sacred Timeline. With the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness release date drawing ever close it remains to be seen just what sort of emotional turmoil these characters will go through across the films 2 hour and 6 minute runtime as the realities of the expansive multiverse truly begin to take hold.

Waldrons comments about the emotional impact of the multiverse certainly spark an interesting discussion as much of the excitement surrounding Multiverse of Madness has focused on the films seemingly unlimited cameo opportunities. However with recent teasers offering glimpses of storylines such as Wanda reuniting with her children its fair to say that this sequel is likely to be both fun and devastating in equal measure. Audiences will soon learn of the emotional realities that theses characters must face when Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness hits theatres on May 6.
