The premiere of Marvel’s What If …? ‘s season 1, on Disney+, Derrickson took it upon himself to praise the episode “What If… Doctor Strange Lost His Heart instead of His Hands?”, which reworked his original film’s story. This episode introduced viewers to Doctor Strange Supreme/Evil Doctor Strange. He appears to have made the transition to living action in the trailer for Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness.

Already, the trailer showed hints of some of these mind-boggling creatures. One example is an immortal squid named Shuma-Gorath. The twists and turns that filmmakers create in their stories are always surprising, and Doctor Strange2 appears determined to challenge all the assumptions about the MCU and its multiple universes. Marvel will keep as many details about the storyline to preserve this unpredictable level. It’s not hard to see why they chose to reveal Evil Doctor Strange.

It’s not surprising it’s something so big like the evil Doctor Strange would be revealed. It’s the trailer for Multiverse of Madness, considering the lengths Marvel had gone to conceal important moments of films before they were released. The trailer missed many important elements of the movie, such as the new characters and inhuman creatures. Instead, they were glossed over to give the last dramatic beat to Evil Doctor Strange. Although it’s a great moment to entertain viewers, it doesn’t make any sense to spoil the includes of this character in the movie.

Evil Doctor Strange is too important to reveal, and there is no logicafilm’sanation why the trailer does not disclose it.
