The newest trailer for "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness," directed by Sam Raimi from Marvel Studios has been released.
The six-minute video, which premiered during Super Bowl LVI and features Doctor Strange, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, being arrested and facing a series of characters in an almost court scenario, is now available to stream on YouTube. After a few seconds of silence, the voice of a male that many have assumed is Patrick Stewart reprising his role as X-Men character Professor X says that Doctor Strange should already be aware of the truth. Meanwhile, Elizabeth Olsen's Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch continues to suffer the consequences of her actions in WandaVision, telling Doctor Strange, "You break the rules and become a hero. I do it, and I'm declared the adversary. It doesn't seem right."
The film's director, Sam Raimi, has already confirmed that Professor X would be returning for his sequel and Stewart himself announced at the C2E2 convention in Chicago during April 2018 that he was "discussing another project with them which would be a follow up to" his cameo appearance as the character in "Avengers: Endgame".
Sam Raimi has directed the film, which is the first Marvel Studios production to be directed by someone other than the Russo brothers. The actor will portray Stephen Vincent Strange, a former neurosurgeon who becomes one of the most powerful sorcerers in the world after breaking reality on an alternate dimension known as the Multiverse of Madness.
The film also stars Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Rachel McAdams. After the success of "Spider-Man: No Way Home," fans have been expecting the sequel to be released shortly after. The first film grossed over $678 million worldwide and it is believed that "Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness" will do a good business as well, given Cumberbatch's popularity as an actor. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to premiere in theaters May 6.
