Spoiler Alert : Leaks summary of Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness

Spoiler Alert : Leaks summary of Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness

Some more info about DS:MOM from @NoobMaster69, who claims to have seen the film and was recently proven right about Captain Carter having a jetpack and about Chavez making a “does Spider-Man shoot web from his butt” joke:

  • The “WandaVision theme” as described by various sources about the recent 20 min preview is indeed just the four note chime from the intros, not the end credits “Wanda’s Theme”. He doesn’t remember if that one appears in the movie at all
  • Wanda and Strange do not fight at her orchard (so they presumably first fight at Kamar-Taj, where we know he loses/has to flee)
  • Spider-Man, Avengers, HYDRA, SHIELD, Thanos, and the Blip are all mentioned in the movie
  • Animated universe is only briefly visible as they tumble through universes, same with the Dinosaur world. This is also all you see of the Living Tribunal (as seen in TV spot). Apparently you also see a honey bee universe, where there is a “honey comb city”
  • The Illuminati show up about 1 hour into the movie
  • John Krasinski as Reed doesn’t have many lines and the Illuminati are all played as very serious
  • Reed and Black Bolt “try to use their powers”, their confrontations with Wanda are “good for a different reason”, while Carter/Marvel have “much more interesting, traditional fight scenes”
  • Captain Marvel vs Wanda ends with Maria losing – she’s either incapacitated or dead, it’s left ambigious. Their fight is the longest out of all the Wanda vs Illuminati battles
  • The “Chthon monsters” are just the guardians of the Darkhold castle, nothing more
  • While there is cool Strange/Wanda fighting in the film, the final fight is not between Wanda and Strange, and what settles the fight is a very emotional moment, not an energy ball
  • Strange has a big part throughout the 3rd act, but his main role in the final fight is about empowering America to stand up for herself and take control of her abilities
  • In his opinion, the best fight of the movie is the one between Wanda and Captain Marvel
  • Thinks it’s very evident Wanda is the most powerful MCU character right now (apart from cosmic abstracts and such)
  • Strange outwits her in a lot of ways, but she’s clearly more powerful than him. Apparently “she tries being ‘reasonable’ with him at first which is what saves him” – apparently she straight up tells Strange at one point that she’s “been reasonable up until now” before she stops holding back
  • Wanda’s fate is left ambigious at the end of the movie
  • He compared her to Loki in Avengers, except “she at least tries to have a moral justification for her acts”
  • “Billy and Tommy never really existed in the main MCU universe, but they do exist in other universes. There’s no real way to “bring them back”, so Wanda has other plans.” NOTE: This is almost definitely meant to be describing the catalyst of the movie, not that she has another plan after she fails and the movie ends
  • The second post credit scene is just another scene with Bruce Campbell as Pizza Poppa
  • While it does feel very Raimi, there are still parts that feel like bland MCU style
  • Wanda is “a great villain, IMO. Like a classic, unstoppable horror movie monster at one point, like Michael Myers, Terminator, Alien, etc.”
  • Agatha is not in this movie nor is she even referenced
  • When asked whether Strange has a good arc in the movie: “IMO he does. There’s not so much focus on America, she’s like a plot device. Strange’s character arc mirrors Wanda’s, it’s about regret and choices not made and paths not taken. He sees in Wanda (and his variants) what he could easily become. “Are you happy Steven?”
  • There are no other cameos except the six Illuminati (Prof X, Reed, Mordo, Black Bolt, Captain Marvel, Captain Carter), Clea in the post credit scene and Bruce Campbell as a street vendor who sells pizza balls called “Pizza Poppa”
