    Trailer is here

    Hopefully Sam Raimi was given some freedom to take off the MCU director handcuffs and do his thing.

    looks like fun....

    Can't say I'm noticing any obvious influence that would tip a hat that Sam Raimi's directing TBH - which is a bit disappointing.

    Defintiely seeing connections to Strange in the first Doctor Strange and in the What If...? series I think.

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,701 ✭✭✭Bacchus

    Are those ruins in space, the same place as where the Kang varient in Loki was hanging out? Kinda looks like it, and looks like the events of Loki and What If (Strange Supreme) will tie in directly to this (and WandaVision obviously).

    Maybe also Jennifer Garner then for Elektra?

    As I said in the general mcu thread, the film is in the can so this is highly unlikely to be true.

  • Registered Users Posts: 60,520 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson

    Colin Farrell's Bullseye.

    I doubt anything will come of this unless it's already filmed in secert as the film itself should be in the can and ready for release in what 12 weeks.

    seeing Dr. Strange facing himself at the end just reminded me of this earlier (and, despite not having seen DSITMOM, probably better) Raimi film:

    Outside of Hugh Jackman / Wolverine and some of the other X-Men, you get the sense Marvel is automatically into diminishing returns with multiverse 'cameos' beyond the undoubtedly fondly remembered Spider-Man cast(s). There was very little else pre-Iron Man that really struck a chord, so you're already down to b-tier cameos. Unless they start bringing back old / retired MCU characters, which actually probably is going to happen at some stage, but even then the particular appeal of No Way Home can only really be done once... outside of X-Men anyway (and maybe Blade, but I'm not sure Disney is hiring Wesley Snipes any time soon!). I'm not even sure DC can repeat the NWH trick with their upcoming Batman multiverse shenanigans.

    I think the potential use of B Tier cameos is quite clever, as they would serve as both fun Easter eggs and more importantly as expendable collateral damage if Wanda really is going on a rampage.

    I mean no one would really give a crap if Wanda kills Ioan Gruffud's Mr Fantastic or Anson Mount's Black Bolt (I'm just plucking names from a hat, this isn't a spoiler) but it would still be quite the spectacle to see, and serves to give Wanda a much over due showcase of powers.

    I want more Ralph Boener cameos please.

  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 36,220 CMod ✭✭✭✭pixelburp

    I think DC got quite the coup with the return or Michael Keaton's batman. In fact there's an argument that that's the biggest cameo/return of them all; with quality over quantity here; the actor who headlined the film that started the whole superhero ball rolling - and arguably, still the best actor to have played the part.

    Superbowl night begins!

    Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness | Official Trailer

  • Registered Users Posts: 10,501 ✭✭✭✭Slydice



    It's gotta be Xavier!

    Can't NOT be Xavier!


  • Registered Users Posts: 12,531 ✭✭✭✭Varik

    Think it's more than just Xavier.

    The other with Xavier are probably the rest of the Illuminati, but in the MCU they've come together to deal with the multiverse. If it is that might mean Reed Richards and that fire person we see could be Johnny.

    yelpp come here to say damn internet exploded tonight for that trailer.

    Honestly is not that surprising we knew that they are coming heh.

  • Registered Users Posts: 7,848 ✭✭✭Mr Crispy

    The official poster teases

    Captain Carter - there's a fragment of glass reflecting what looks like Cap's shield with the Union Jack on it.

  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 36,220 CMod ✭✭✭✭pixelburp

    "we should tell him the truth". Well there was a very familiar voice - though I'd say this will be a cameo at most, and a handover at best.

    The biggest new entry was the presence of America Chavez in what looks like a supporting role, with some action scenes too. Don't know much of her but IIRC she's a fan favourite of recent years from the comics.

    that trailer looks class...

  • Registered Users Posts: 60,520 ✭✭✭✭Agent Coulson

    Well now I'm guessing the..

    MCU is about to get a whole lot bigger.

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,071 ✭✭✭Brief_Lives

    do spoilers now exist for speculation?

    how about speculation is put in the title

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,071 ✭✭✭Brief_Lives


    but spoilers are bull

  • Registered Users Posts: 8,965 ✭✭✭EoinMcLovin

    Some more details in the tv spot

  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 36,220 CMod ✭✭✭✭pixelburp

    I think Far From Home and a couple others muddied the waters in terms of big reveals and "hidden" character surprises. A lot of folks like their trailers as enigmatic and abstract as possible so discussing their detail ruins that a little. I suspect with the Multiverse doors fully blown open there's going to be a LOT of comebacks, cameos and "surprises" coming down the tracks; maybe "SPOILERS" can be added to the thread title?

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,701 ✭✭✭Bacchus

    I don't see the point in using spoilers for a trailer so watch out below.

    That's an intense trailer (and TV spot). There's soooo much going on in there and it does appear that it'll tie in to WhatIf with fricking ZOMBIES and Socerer Supreme (tentacle attack looks like it's from WhatIf)! Agent Carter is also teased in the poster apparently. I don't think there's much point trying to read in to who the fireball character is. There's a strong possibility that those visuals are manipulated to some degree to throw everyone off the scent. Also 100% that is Xavier. There is no way they'd use him for another purpose, especially after the last, ill-received, X-Men fake out. I don't know anything about what that council is from the comics but my read of it is that this is another earth where Tony created Ultron successfully, there are X-Men, FF, and all the other Marvel characters. I'm not sure if they are going to be some sort of multiverse police as the multiverse only just started unraveling. Anyway, loads of goodies there to dissect. This is gonna be Endgame levels of huge for the MCU.

    From the far flung future, first gay Latina character in Marvel, has standard superman powers flight/strength/invulnerability but also a real cool ability to literally "kick" star shaped holes in dimensional walls so is a portable multiverse story generator as she hops between them all the time.

    Definitely up there with Ms. Marvel in terms of popularity for the more recent Marvel creations. Most well known for hanging around with the Young Avengers characters we're seeing everywhere in the MCU at the moment (Billy and Tommy, Kate Bishop, Cassie Lang, young Loki, Eli Bradley). So I think we're definitely seeing them soon. Has a thing for Kate which is AFAIK unrequited.

  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 36,220 CMod ✭✭✭✭pixelburp

    Ta for that. I wonder how much will be 1:1 with this version; the MCU has tended to tweak, or indeed wholesale alter, characters from page to screen.
