Trippy Spider-Man Fan Poster Splits Doctor Strange’s Head In Half
Trippy fan-made poster Spider-Man – No Way Home shows Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange’s head cut in half by the multiverse shenanigans of the title hero. The web-slinger’s third installment in Tom Holland’s MCU Spider-Man Trilogy will be his biggest yet. Peter Parker is bringing the MCU closer to encounters with the multiverse. A second trailer has been released that shows Holland’s Spidey being menaced by villains. These villains were last seen fighting Andrew Garfield and Tobey Maguire’s versions of the wall-crawler. There is speculation about a possible team-up between these three films.
These events are too risky for a local hero. This explains why Doctor Strange was involved. Trailers confirm that Peter will visit Strange in the first act to request a reality-altering magic spell that will reverse the revelation of his identity from Spider-Man. Peter interferes with the spell and causes the breaking down of the dimensional barriers. This allows villains like Doc Ock and Electro to enter the mainline Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Instagram user created a trippy fan poster depicting Strange’s head cut in half to reflect this multiversal chaos. This shows Peter in the middle of his multiverse madness. Cumberbatch’s head is divided by one of his portals. It shows Holland’s Spidey falling in a nest made up of Doc Ock and Electro’s electricity. The design also includes the Green Goblin pumpkin bombs. This poster adds to speculation about other Spider-Men. Maguire’s and Garfield’s masks can be seen from both sides of Strange.
This poster is heavily inspired by the eccentric style of Doctor Strange’s comics. He also has a co-creator in Steve Ditko. Ditko’s often abstract artwork has been a visual guide for both characters for almost 60 years. The body-horror aspect is also a tribute to the character’s cinematic roots within the genre. Both his debut feature and the sequel are being directed by Sam Raimi and Scott Derrickson, respectively.
This poster is imaginative and striking, showing a lot of creativity that Marvel’s mainstream marketing lacks. Marvel Studios posters are often accused of being too photoshopped and visually generic. The posters for the Spider-Man trilogy were particularly criticized for their lackluster approach to visually appealing characters. This piece shows the fanbase’s seemingly endless creativity, talent, and excitement for Spider-Man.
Is Doctor Strange trying to stop the Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer? The second trailer, Spider-Man: No Way Home, confirms that Doctor Octopus (and Green Goblin) aren’t just the villains that will be coming to the MCU in an alternate universe. In their fight against Spider-Man, Electro, Sandman, and Lizard join them. Their grudge against Spider-Man seems just the beginning of the disaster that the multiverse is bringing the MCU.
Several factors have broken the multiverse. The first Nexus event was Phase 4 when Scarlet Witch unleashed its power on Westview during WandaVision. Loki announced that Sylvie had killed He Who Remains just after the “threshold,” which he had waited for his whole life. Doctor Strange’s failed spell that was supposed to aid Peter Parker in recovering his secret identity has now brought Spider-Man’s biggest villains into the main Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Despite the danger that the multiversal Sinister 6 represent, Peter Parker seems to sympathize with them when he discovers that all six are destined to die at the hands of their respective Spider-Men. The movie begins with Peter Parker, played by Tom Holland, stealing the mysterious box Doctor Strange uses to send the villains back into their reality. However, Strange can retrieve it from Spider-Man. The movie ends with the villains joining forces to fight Spider-Man at the Statue of Liberty. Doctor Strange tries his best to stop the multiversal rifts from collapsing while Spider-Man is warned that they are “beginning to come through.” This moment is most likely to occur at the start of the final fight. It’s where the Green Goblin and his crew return from alternate dimensions after Doctor Strange temporarily sent them back.
There are many other possible connections to the multiverse’s rupture. The multiversal cracks in the Spider-Mantrailer are identical to He Who Remains’s Sacred Timeline which was broken moments before his death. This could be the moment when Andrew Garfields’ Spider-Men assists Tom Holland’s Spidey. Or, in a surprising twist, it could also be where Doctor Strange must leave to stop the multiverse from collapsing. Strange is not present when Spider-Man meets Electro, Sandman, and Lizard. Spidey must be free of any mentor at this stage so he can end the conflict on his terms.
Doctor Strange is the best person to reverse the dangers of the multiverse. Spider-Man’s battle against multiversal villains is a frightening prospect for the sorcerer. Spider-Man is Peter Parker’s perfect chance to prove himself, as Doctor Strange will get his chance to shine in Doctor Strange: The Multiverse of Madness.
