Neither Wanda, Nor Evil Strange Is the Villain of Multiverse of Madness. It Is…

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be the first MCU project of the year. Fans are excited about what they might get to witness in the movie because of some wild theories making rounds. Tom Holland had said that No Way Home was gonna be crazy and that it was. But according to various sources, Doctor Strange 2 might topple this craziness. The movie is supposed to feature a variety of characters and there are a lot of theories regarding the actual villain of the movie. Strange will even seek help from Wanda, who is also supposed to be one of the villains of the movie. The first trailer for the movie indicated that this villain is gonna be none other than Shuma-Gorath. A new theory suggests that the villain of Multiverse of Madness might be Chthon.

Multiverse of Madness

The multiverse has been building up for quite a long time now in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Fans only got to witness it completely in Spider-Man: No Way Home when Peter and Strange ended up botching a spell. This spell brought in a variety of villains from all across the multiverse who knew Peter Parker is Spider-Man. But that wasn’t all as around the end we saw that things were leading to pure multiversal chaos. This was only stopped when Peter suggested a solution that involved making everyone forget about Peter Parker. But it seems that there is still something wrong and we will get to see the true impact of the multiverse in the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel.

From the trailer, fans stopped theorizing that Scarlet Witch is gonna be a villain in the movie. But there is still a chance that she might end up being the villain considering she might want to use the multiverse for her own selfish goals. This would be primarily to find her children who might be alive somewhere across the multiverse. The trailer also showed that we will get to see two different renditions of Strange himself and one of them might end up turning against him. But the primary antagonist in the movie appeared to be Shuma-Gorath who is renamed Gargantos in the MCU. But we are very well aware that MCU has a tendency of giving fans something other than what they end up expecting.


Theory: Chthon Is The True Villain

Marvel is known for building excitement in the trailers for the movie but at the same time showing something a lot more exciting in the movie. This was seen in the case of the various past trailers for the MCU projects. There are well-edited moments that actually get a different response from the fans than the one that they are supposed to. This was seen in the case of No Way Home itself, where a particular see removed the presence of the two Spider-Men. Fans were able to clearly guess the presence of Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire in the trailer for the movie.


Shuma-Gorath appears to be attacking this dimension like a monster in the trailer. This might mean that it will be some sort of villain who appears for a very small fight. At the same time, fans were wondering if the evil Variant of Strange could be Doctor Strange Supreme from the Disney+ animated series What If…?. But that is highly unlikely considering the character redeemed itself and realized his mistakes with the final episode of the series. Instead, he might appear as a mentor to Strange based on the amount of knowledge he has about the multiverse itself.

The true villain of Doctor Strange 2 could be the Elder God Chthon who was already foreshadowed in the MCU. He was mentioned in a project that will be closely associated with this movie and that is none other than the Disney+ series WandaVision. He is a Lovecraftian monster who ruled the Earth before the dawn of humanity. It was Chthon who left the book of forbidden magic that is called the Darkhold. We saw that Wanda was going through this book in the last few minutes of the final episode of the series.


This book was primarily responsible for Wanda becoming the Scarlet Witch with her Choas Magic. According to the comics, the chaos magic comes from Chthon himself and thus Wanda using it might act as a channel for Chthon. This would make for a rather dark premise and fans won’t even expect it to happen and that would make the narrative a lot darker. A second trailer might give us some more insight into what we will actually end up seeing in the movie.


Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be released in theaters worldwide on May 6.
