Marvel is working really hard at keeping the details regarding the various projects that are gonna be a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fans of the franchise are very much excited about the upcoming release of Spider-Man: No Way Home. The movie is going to introduce the Multiverse in a whole new manner ever since it was first introduced in the Disney+ series Loki. But the second Doctor Strange will be continuing on the narrative of the Multiverse based on the title of the movie – Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Hardly any confirmed detail regarding the plot of the movie has been released so far. It seems some details regarding Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness have been leaked. Read on to check out Gargantos, and the first look at America Chavez from the Doctor Strange 2 Lego leak.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
Based on Doctor Strange’s appearance in the upcoming Spider-Man: No Way Home, there are a lot of theories on how it will impact the solo Doctor Strange sequel following that. While it has been clear that the Multiverse will play a major role in the movie and Wanda will also be present in it significantly. No villains have yet been confirmed for the movie and fans had been wondering who might appear as the antagonist. Previous leaks based on merchandise for the movie indicated that we will probably get to see a monster and America Chavez appear in the movie. It seems that the new leak confirms a lot of this theory while at the same time pointing at a specific villain.
New Doctor Strange 2 Lego Leak
Information regarding the Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Lego set was leaked on the Lego Building Instructions app. The leak indicated that we might get to witness a fight with the sea monster Gargantos in the upcoming film. Amongst the leak, the description said:
Gargantos, the giant, one-eyed monster, spots Doctor Strange, Wong, and America Chavez and wriggles towards the 3 heroes. Will the team’s special powers and weapons be enough to defeat the monster or will they be tangled up in tentacles? Only you can decide.
Not only that, but the box for the set comes with Doctor Strange, Wong, and America Chavez minifigs and it will be branded as the “Gargantos Showdown” set. Fans can notice that the photos in the top right corner indicate the characters of Strange, Chavez, Scarlet Witch, and Wong in their respective costumes. This actually gives some more details about the project and clarifies some past misconceptions fans might have theorized about the movie.
The new evidence based on the details leaked about the movie seems to confirm that Doctor Strange 2 will be introducing the underwater world into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Initially, this was thought to be Shuma Gorath based around the arc of America Chavez but it seems we will be getting to see the very special squid from the underwater world of Marvel characters.
Gargantos is a monstrous creature owned by the Nagas, who had once unleashed it on Namor when the latter defeated the Lemurian warriors. The monster dies in the very hands of his master when Namor blinds it and it ends up attacking King Naga and the Lemurian citizens. Another notable appearance by the character also shows the ruthless sea monster fighting against the sub-mariner once again. Fans had been theorizing the Gargantos might be appearing in the movie ever since the 24-year-old Colombian actress Yenifer Molina included the role in her digital resume on her agency’s website.
This might mean that finally, we will get to see the character of Namor making an appearance in the MCU if this arc is continued in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. There has been a long wait for the character ever since Marvel placed an Easter egg for him in one of the past projects. The set-piece looks like they are battling on the side of a building and this might mean we will get to see the character fighting across the various universes. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be released in theatres worldwide on 6 May 2022.
