The most hyped upcoming project in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is getting closer to its release date. Multiverse of Madness will explore the multiverse a lot more than what we got to see in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Fans are trying to grasp every single detail about the movie in order to get some idea of the project. We already have received two trailers from the movie and it seems each of them has opened a new layer of mystery for the fans. New theories are emerging based on these details and these theories can only be clarified once we get some clarification. A new theory suggests that the Ultron Sentries in Doctor Strange 2 could hint at the presence of something more sinister.
Multiverse of Madness
There is a lot of excitement surrounding the latest entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We had gotten to see a hint of what the multiverse could do with Spider-Man: No Way Home. But now it seems that Doctor Strange would be facing the absolute multiversal chaos with a variety of mystical creatures and variants showing up in the MCU. Things got further complicated when Strange was seen being summoned to a council. It was indicated that this could be because Doctor Strange had meddled with the multiverse in the past.
But an interesting thing to look at in the movie was the presence of Ultron Drones. When Strange was being summoned by this council, it was shown that he was being escorted by Ultron drones. They appeared to be some rendition of the Ultron drones we had seen in the Avengers: Age of Ultron as a part of Ultron’s army. It was long being indicated that Ultron might be used in the MCU again and this could be the very thing we were waiting for. But there are a lot of theories surrounding these drones and what role they might be playing in the movie.
Stark’s Iron Legion
The biggest theory surrounding the movie has to be the appearance of the Illuminati. Ever since Patrick Stewart’s voice was heard in the trailer, it has been presumed that he will be reprising his role as Charles Xavier. As the character appeared in a council, this council could be the Illuminati. According to a theory, the Illuminati has been looking over the multiverse and they will hold Strange accountable for the chaos that unfolds. Based on the appearance of the Illuminati, fans have also theorized about the other members of this group.
One of these theorized members has been Superior Iron Man. This could actually mean that the Ultron drones were his idea and they are dedicated to working for the Illuminati. Another theory being associated with them is the fact that Iron Man might have been successful in making everyone wear a suit of armor around the world. All these theories go along with the idea of the Illuminati and it makes sense that these things might end up appearing in the movie. But another theory suggests that these drones could be something else entirely.
Ultron Drones Are Members of The Empirikul
A new theory suggests that the drones that we saw in the full-length trailer for Doctor Strange 2 could be the members of the Empirikul. This robot army made its debut in 2015’s Doctor Strange #1 and they were serving a villain called the Imperator. There is a history of Imperator and magic as he was fanatically anti-magic. He came from a dimension where the Lovecraftian being Shuma-Gorath was worshipped and his authorities had killed Imperator’s science using parents. He sent his army across the multiverse to purge it of all magic-using beings. Even though Strange and his friends managed to defeat them, there was a lot of destruction on the path to this.
We cannot be absolutely sure if they end up appearing in the movie, but the existence of Gargantos might be a hint. Shuma-Gorath actually appears in the trailer but the MCU seems to be referring to him as Gargantos. Even Mordo appears to be present in the council and he had some similarities with the Imperator’s motives. This actually makes it more probable that these drones could actually be the members of Empirikul.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be released in theaters worldwide on May 6.
