One of the most interesting aspects of Doctor Strange in a multiverse of madness is how so many bad guys mustered in its run time. Fans saw Wanda Maximov become a deranged Crimson Witch, leaving Strange Wong and America Chavez desperate for a way to stop her. On their journey, the scheming Illuminati comes to light, as well as dark versions of Strange, proving how science and magic may have broken the multiverse more than they are tools meant to fix it.
In the end, all of these experiments provided a glimpse into how horrific things could happen on Earth-616. With that in mind, let’s analyze what the villains are made of from this incredible journey started by the wizards of Kamar Taj, and how they can shape a third, more chaotic movie.
Doctor Strange 3 can bring the hood to New York City
In the comics, Parker Robbins becomes The Hood, a supernatural gangster who has gone from a street-level heist with his gang to a powerful player alongside Norman Osborne, Emma Frost, and the Dark Illuminati. It was because he had found a cloak that was related to Dormammu from the Dark Dimension. This could make him the avatar of Satan on Earth.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe never went far from magical relics, so Parker could easily find these and other items, helping his crew. The MCU could make the team younger and more fashionable too, playing on the concept of Boomers and Gen Z, as Strange and Wong struggle to keep up with the generation gap. Younger villains can bring a newer look at crime, using spells and weapons in ways older folks would never think of, like mystery guns. He would allow America (who was training under Wong) to advance as a wizard as well, serving as an unofficial test to become a supreme wizard one day.
Dr. Gharib 3 can make a better Dormamo life
In the books, Omar is the twin sister of Dormo. However, they had a contentious relationship in which she betrayed him for control of the Dark Dimension. With Strange beating him up in the first movie, the MCU could easily ascend to the throne in his absence, using fire monsters called the Faltinians and the Mindless Ones to plot a new takeover of all of reality.
Interestingly, the books have a partnership with Baron Mordo, so the Mordos from the MCU can broker a deal where they form an alliance and attempt to bring some form of warped order into the universe. Mordu can help Umar take control of her kingdom, while Umar can provide the Mordu army he needs to eliminate the Kamar Taj and other threats he believes embody instability. This could easily rework Kaecilius’ plan from the beginning Dr. Gharib film, but with more efficient and more efficient ports. Once again, you will give your suppliers that glorious purpose he is looking for as the magical guardian of the galaxy.
Doctor Strange 3 can totally make a devilish romance
in the middle of the credits Dr. Gharib 2, Clea (played by Charlize Theron) arrives through a row to hold Strange accountable for his raids. They jump through a portal into what appears to be the Dark Dimension, ending the movie on a cliffhanger completely. Being the daughter of Omar in the comics, she may be manipulating Strange to help her mother launch a coup. Since Strange had been corrupted by Darkhold, making him a pawn might have been easier than initially assumed.
However, Clea had her own selfish role, so she might be the one seeking the throne after her uncle got stuck in Strange’s time loop. Either way, with Strange not being romantically involved with Kristen, this would provide an even more emotional villain, testing his heart and mind if he thinks she deserves a payback. They had a romance in the comics, and she became the top witch, so it’s easy to see the MCU making her a villain that needs fixing before the power of love turns her into a better person.
Doctor Strange 3 can use Nightmare for a secret invasion
Dr. Gharib 2 Nightmares and dreams revealed to people are actually visions of alternate versions of themselves on another earth. Thus, this Nightmare provides the perfect entry point where this demonic being can use these visions to connect people across all realities. In the comics, he sucks people into his world through their dreams, even taking control of their bodies, which is exactly what the Scarlet Witch did in this movie – calling it “walking in dreams.”
This will allow the Nightmare to possess the others, creating an evil army over many Earths, especially the 616. It can form secret invasion-Like a storyline with a supernatural twist in place of Skrulls, allowing the tyrant to target Sanctum Sanctorum and Kamar-Taj. Nightmare has an army of sokobi and cuddles waiting. Not to mention he can also publish Fear Lords, like D’Spayre and Nox, which will build on one of them, Dweller-in-Darkness, which is already appearing in shang chi single movie.
Doctor Strange 3 can finally deliver Mephisto
Wanda’s latest tragedy could finally bring on Mephisto because of what Wandagor revealed. Wong confirmed the existence of hubs like these throughout the multiverse, which only dark beings can harness. It is easy to imagine Mephisto moving from reality to reality, making wishes and claiming that souls become strong enough to suck these axes dry. If Wanda was alive, he could even tempt her with another false truth, absorbing another of her Darkhold’s magic. In addition, he can offer America a world with her mothers, or a strange world with Kristen.
The point is, many of the heroes are broken and yearning for something more, which Mephisto can play in a delicate role, such as when Pete is tempted to rescue Aunt Mae in Civil war books. With Strange already casting a bad spell Spider Man: There is no place for home And splits across the open multiverse, it’s easy for Mephisto to take advantage of people’s grief. Snap has a lot of people empty inside because they’ve lost loved ones in the five years they’ve gone missing, so Mephisto will have many victims to grab. In the end, the wizards of Strange and even the recovered Wanda may have to team up to prevent the demon from offering false hope.
Watch how these villains were set up in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, now in theaters.
