Marvel Cinematic Universe has been growing at a pace unlike any other. The constant stream of new content has skyrocketed audience expectations. The sheer number of simultaneous storylines in the MCU is baffling, especially when you start to consider the fact that every protagonist has a colorful supporting cast. This is the great thing about Marvel. They don’t shy away from creating implications about the future. Marvel Studios enjoys pestering fans with easter eggs. This is their way of making sure that the fans will actually be happy with the final inclusion. Now, let us talk about all the characters set up by Doctor Strange 2. Take a look at this list and let us know if we miss any.
There had been a lot of rumors about a possible Deadpool cameo in Multiverse of Madness but things did not turn out as we had previously thought. Though the multiverse and the appearance of characters native to the fox is an indication that the Merc with a mouth would be showing up in the MCU quite soon.
It is possible that through Multiverse of Madness, Marvel Studios sought to create a scenario where they could ultimately introduce Nightmare as the next villain for Doctor Strange. Think about it, if dreams are windows into the lives of our multiversal selves then things will become quite absurd when Nightmare shows up.
Another character that is expected to appear in the MCU now is The High Evolutionary. fans have had their theories about his appearance for a long time. All because it was all but confirmed that Mount Wundagore would be appearing in Multiverse of Madness, and The High Evolutionary conducted his experiments on Mount Wundagore. The MCU could never introduce one and leave the other.
Another thing that is bound to happen after Multiuverse of Madness is the debut of Chthon in the MCU. This Elder God will surely raze the earth in search of Wanda. After all, the destruction of Mount Wundagore implies that Chthon will be released from his prison and take over this dimension through chaos magic.
Doctor Strange 2 takes us through several universes. There is even a little snippet where we get glimpses into a lot of different universes. One of these universes has some dinosaurs in it. Fans have been speculating that this is Savage Land aka the home universe of Ka-Zar, Savage Land’s protector.
The Living Tribunal
Multiverse of Madness is the second time that The Living Tribunal has been teased in the MCU. The floating head with three faces previously appeared in Loki. Now, we got another look at him during Chavez and Strange’s trip through the Multiverses. He might show up in the climax of Phase 6 if we are lucky.
In a blink and you will miss it a moment, Mr. Fantastic makes a reference to his kids. For the uninitiated, Reed’s children are some of the most powerful beings in the entire multiverse. There is no one quite as powerful as Franklin Richards. The Kid created a baby universe in his bed.
Valeria Richards is the sister of Franklin Richards. The girl has not been blessed with any superhero abilities but she did receive her father’s genius-level intellect. This character was also referenced in Multiverse of Madness by Reed Richards of Earth-838.
If the kids exist and Redd exists then surely Sue also exists in the 838 universe. It is possible that she might have retired from the superhero business after the tussle with Thanos. We would still love to see the character in the MCU sooner rather than later.
Clea is the Sorcerer Supreme of the Dark Dimension and it was nice to see her making an appearance at the end of the movie in an attempt to save Strange from the impending incursion.
Inhumans was one of the few MCU failures. Marvel Studios thought it best to just ignore the show after the first season had ended. But it seems that they have now relegated the show as a part of Universe-838 where The Illuminati were from. The existence of Black Bolt may be all the proof we need.
The Illuminati also brought with it the most loyal portrayal of Charles Xavier in live-action, especially with the yellow hover chair and the kind disposition. This was one of the best easter eggs in Multiverse of Madness.
We finally got to see John Krasinski’s Mr. Fantastic in the MCU. Although we are not sure if he will be playing Reed Richards in the main universe too or not. Regardless, we dig the beard and the costume.
