There will be a fight between Elizabeth Olsen and Benedict Cumberbatch in ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’
The presence of Elizabeth Olsen in the ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ trailer that was shared by Marvel, made fans excited and impatient.
The reason is, there is a tension that occurs between Wanda and Strange in some dialogues due to the destruction of the Multiverse. After his appearance in ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ last December, Benedict Cumberbatch will reappear in the ‘Doctor Strange’ sequel. This time, Wanda Maximoff will be joining us after her last appearance in the Disney+ limited series, ‘WandaVision’.
After being announced in 2019, ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ has confirmed Olsen’s presence as Benedict’s co-star. However, at that time fans were not aware of Wanda Maximoff’s change to the new Scarlet Witch airing on ‘WandaVision’ 2021.
In ‘WandaVision’, Wanda is led down a dark path after she learns the truth about the Scarlet Witch. During that time, Wanda also mastered Darkhold and studied it so that her appearance in ‘Doctor Strange 2’ will be even more interesting and awaited by fans.
Wanda’s relationship in the Multiverse with Strange is still unclear what it will be, but it is predictable that there will be a fight between them. Quoted from Empire Magazine when Olsen was interviewed, he alluded to his interactions with Strange, including their fight scene,
“I really was excited to do dialogue with him.
Although the two of them are present in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and fight Thanos (Josh Brolin), there is no interaction that occurs on the screen. The two magic lords don’t appear to be meeting on the screen.
Fans who are looking forward to the interaction between the two are getting impatient with ‘Multiverse of Madness’. Not a collaboration, the information that has been revealed so far suggests Scarlet and Stranger will fight over Scarlet Witch being punished for breaking the law while Strange doesn’t even if they both do.
As for the Multiverse, it’s not yet known whether Wanda and Strange will team up to deal with it, given Wanda’s anger and mastery of her evil side. Besides Wanda and Strange’s relationship, ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ has many other aspects that make it worth the wait . There will be the debut of America Chavez, played by Xochitl Gomez, the return of Patrick Stewart as Professor X, and the debut of the MCU illuminati.
After ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ gave an overview of a Multiverse, finally blockbusters will start building a multiverse in the MCU. The film also provides clues to the potential that Marvel could bring to its films, including allowing it to draw narratives from other non-MCUs.
