The world is excited for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. This could be the biggest project of Marvel after Endgame without a doubt. After the departure of original director Scott Derrickson, Marvel tapped Sam Raimi to direct. This broadcasts the fact that Doctor Strange 2 will indeed be a horror flick. As we’ve discusses before, the Darkhold holds major importance in Strange’s journey and was introduced in WandaVision. But it according to a new MCU theory, the Darkhold may introduce new superhero teams In Doctor Strange 2
Darkhold has established the utmost importance of both – Wanda and Doctor Strange in the MCU. Moreover, both of them will be seen in the sequel as well. Well, the first team of superheroes that the Darkhold could bring is The Darkholders. This could be one of the superhero teams in Doctor Strange 2. In the comics, this ancient cult is devoted to the worship of Chthon (Elder God who wrote Darkhold). Darkholders began the process of collecting the scrolls Chthon had inscribed his original spells upon. They wrote them down on parchment, which they bound together into the book called the Darkhold.
As a result, they were exposed to Chthon’s corruption. These Darkholders became avowed servants of the Elder God. They were responsible for circulating rumors that the Darkhold could be used to secure power and immortality. There are vampires and even demons among the Darkholders. But the most prominent figure is the Darkhold Dwarf, who appears to serve as a leader.
Darkhold dwarf is best known for ensuring pages of the Darkhold get to the place where they will cause the maximum disruption. Moreover, his end goal is simple – bring Chthon to Earth. He possesses colossal magical power. Well, it was sufficient to withstand a magically-boosted Carnage with ease. The team could be introduced in the MCU with much ease because the Darkhold is now in major play. Moreover, the Darkholders would be more than happy to see Wanda turn the pages of the Darkhold and get more and more under the spell of Chthon.
New Superhero teams In Doctor Strange 2
The Children Of Midnight
In the comics, the Midnight Sons are traditionally a group of superheroes who gather together to oppose the forces of supernatural evil. But first, let’s dive deeper into the history of it. The traditional leader of the Children of Midnight is a member of the Montesi family. The priest Giacomo Montesi possessed an unusual resistance to the Darkhold’s corruptive influence. Hence, he was entrusted to take care of the Darkhold by the Pope centuries ago.
As a result, received special permission from the Pope to marry and have children. This was done in order to have an entire bloodline with the same resistance and act as a defense against Chthon. The modern leader of the Children of Midnight is Victoria Montesi. Victoria was the key to Chthon’s plan. He impregnated her with his own essence. But fortunately, Doctor Strange managed to intervene and avert the end of the world. She continued to dedicate herself to the continuation of the Montesi mission. She used her own connection with the Darkhold to spot wherever its magic was being used.
The Midnight Sons, or Children of Midnight, are somewhat already in the process of establishment in the MCU. Some powerful magical heroes are yet to be introduced in the MCU, such as Blade, Ghost Rider, and Moon Knight. But the concept seems a little vague because of Scarlet Witch. They would simply be drawn to the Scarlet Witch because of her Chaos Magic, which is derived from Chthon as well. Doctor Strange 2 could see some of the Children of Midnight step out of the shadows and facilitate the Masters of the Mystic Arts.
Directed by Sam Raimi, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Xochitl Gomez. The film arrives in theaters on March 25, 2022.
So this was the MCU Theory about the Darkhold bringing new superhero teams in Doctor Strange 2. What you guys think about it. Let us know in the comments.
