Secrets are coming out…

Benedict Cumberbatch says Doctor Strange 2 and What If’s variants are different

Benedict Cumberbatch says Doctor Strange 2 and What If’s variants are different

Yes, the variants will come thick and fast in The Multiverse Of Madness, with trailers revealing that, alongside the Sacred Timeline Strange, we’ll also see Benedict Cumberbatch as a combat-ready Defender Strange, a clean-shaven Supreme Strange and a corrupted Sinister Strange.

Many were quick to point out the similarities between the darker Sinister Strange and the Strange Supreme who features in episode four of Disney Plus’ animated series What If…?, but Cumberbatch confirms that his Sinister Steve “is nothing that you’ve seen before. What If…? is a beautiful riff of a potential. And this is something different.

“I don’t think anything can rival the surprise in a Spider-Man movie of having the previous two Spider-Men appear with the current one. I mean, I don’t think we’re going to top them on that!” he says. “But our film does have other surprises and other interesting revelations.”

Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”—a thrilling ride through the Multiverse with Doctor Strange, his trusted friend Wong and Wanda Maximoff, aka Scarlet Witch. “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” opens in U.S. theaters on May 6, 2022.
