With half of the original 6 Avengers having been killed in action or retiring and another one off-world and joining the “Asgardians of the Galaxy”, who will be stepping into a leadership role within the group? According to a translated statement from Marvel Studios in Japan, Doctor Strange is now listed as a “Central Character” in the MCU and among The Avengers. The translation comes from Cosmic Circus and reads:
“The door of the multiverse, full of mystery and madness, opens. Now that Iron Man and Captain America have left after a fierce battle in Avengers: Endgame, former genius surgeon and the strongest magician of them all, Doctor Strange, is expected to play an active role as a central figure in the Avengers.”
“However, using his magic to manipulate time and space at will with a forbidden spell that is considered the most dangerous has opened the door to a mysterious madness called “the Multiverse.” To restore a world where everything is changing, Strange seeks help from his ally Wong, the Sorcerer Supreme, and the Avengers’ most powerful Scarlet Witch, Wanda. But a terrible threat looms over humanity and the entire universe that no longer can be done by their power alone. Even more surprising, the greatest threat in the universe looks exactly like Doctor Strange…” It continues, “Director Sam Raimi, who has expressed a unique world view, will captivate the whole world with overwhelming scale and unprecedented visual experience that will transcend time and space!”
With a prominent role in Avengers: Infinity War, Spider-Man: No Way Home, and joining forces with Wanda Maximoff/The Scarlet Witch in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness we can’t wait to see the team come back together, and (hopefully) stronger than ever!
