Ticket sales for ‘Doctor Strange & The Multiverse of Madness’ just went on sale and more news has been released about the upcoming film. Specifically, according to Director Sam Raimi, we’ll see multiple versions of Wanda in film!
“Yes. The movie is a journey into the multiverse, so you do see different iterations of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange, and even Lizzie Olsen’s character of Wanda Maximoff,” Raimi revealed. “So, the actors have to play that. It’s a great challenge for them and great fun to direct them playing these altered versions of themselves.”
This isn’t the only news we’ve heard about the film. Just the other day, per a newly released TV spot for the film, we learned the movie would feature Wanda’s sons from the “Wandavision” series on Disney+. In the spot we see both Doctor Strange and Wanda having recurring nightmares centering on the sons she lost when the reality she constructed for herself collapsed at the end of her spin-off series.
We imagine that this will be part of the narrative of the film, which ties Wanda Maximoff into the new movie. Of course, from this news we can also assume that this will tie back to the tease at the end of the “Wandavision” series when we see her in a remote cabin studying the dark hold in her astral form. For those who don’t remember, during this scene is when Wanda hears her twins crying out for help–signaling to the idea that her kids may still be alive somewhere in the multiverse.
Here’s the official description for “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness:”
“Now that Iron Man and Captain America have left after a fierce battle in Avengers: Endgame, former genius surgeon and the strongest magician of them all, Doctor Strange, is expected to play an active role as a central figure in the Avengers. However, using his magic to manipulate time and space at will with a forbidden spell that is considered the most dangerous has opened the door to a mysterious madness called ‘the Multiverse.’”
The new film will hit theaters in only a few weeks on May 5th! If you want to get tickets for the opening weekend of the film we recommend purchasing your tickets now as pre-sale has been moving quite fast for this release.
