Ever since the concept of “multiverse” was mentioned by Marvel Studios, fans of the film saga, comics and casual viewers have been wondering what the next step is. The arrival of Stephen Strange’s next adventure will undoubtedly answer many questions, and some of them have already been raised with WandaVision Y Spider-Man: No Way Home. However, it is still not entirely clear to many what the specific connection the series will have. Loki with Doctor Strange and its multiverse of madness.
The question did not arise for free. Kevin Feige himself has already commented that there will undoubtedly be a connection between the adventures of Loki and Doctor Strange’s walk through the multiverse, however, little else was mentioned. Since then many believe that perhaps the events at the end of the series are some kind of trigger that unleashes the multiverse. But trailers for the upcoming film have established a different origin.
Given so many theories and unanswered questions, it seems that the apparent connection is Michael Waldron. The scriptwriter was in charge of configuring Loki for Marvel Studios, and was later called on by the studio to take over stranger, once it was established that Sam Raimi would take the reins of the project. Of course, what everyone imagines is that his participation in both is no accident.
Recently the screenwriter had the opportunity to clear up any doubts in an interview with The Playlist. However, your answer may leave some with more questions, or satisfy others. On how both projects are connected, he said the following:
“The headaches I have are probably intertwined. I mean, everything is intertwined, and everything is separate. As a great comic book universe, I think one thing certainly informs the other. You’ll have a better time watching the next chapter of an MCU story if you’ve seen the previous stuff. But also, hopefully, even if you’ve never done it, if you’ve come from outside, you’ll still have fun. It should be good enough to stand on its own.”
Waldon emphasized enough how Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was conceived. The film was one of several that had its main development during the lockdowns of the pandemic and this led to all those involved working more closely and at the same time reduced.
“Doing it in a pandemic was like doing a great home project for me,” he confessed. “And I think we ended up with something that we’re all very proud of.”
Although Michael Waldron has been very smart not to reveal much, it is clear to many that the sequel to Sorcerer Supreme will be a major turning point for the MCU. The connection between Doctor Strange Y Loki could even take effect in the second season of the Show. At the end of the first installment of the series we learned how the branches of the multiverse can detonate in alternate realities.
While many believe that Loki will influence Doctor Strange, perhaps the reality is that it is the opposite way. So far, such a series is the only one from Marvel Studios that will obviously have a second season. Waldron and the whole team are already working hard to make it a reality, but we are still far from knowing the result.
While, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness It will hit Mexican movie theaters on May 4. It is the return of Sam Raimi to the comic book cinema, and the first time that the MCU even caresses the dyes of terror within his cinematographic universe. Anxious is little.
