To celebrate the eagerly-anticipated release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, we had the pleasure of chatting with the film’s incredibly talented leads to find out about all the madness in store.
In Marvel Studios’ “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” the MCU unlocks the Multiverse and pushes its boundaries further than ever before. Journey into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies both old and new, traverses the mind-bending and dangerous alternate realities of the Multiverse to confront a mysterious new adversary.
Firstly, we chat to the brilliant Elizabeth Olsen, who returns as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch after the events of WandaVision. We chat about the success of the show and how it showed a new, exciting avenue for Marvel and the MCU, why fans are drawn to Wanda and her seemingly insurmountable grief, and what it was like teaming up with Strange to explore the multiverse and all its connotations.
We also spoke to her about the future of her character and whether she still hopes the comic-book battles of Wanda and Doctor Doom will soon come to fruition and if she is ready to break the internet – heck, the world – if she gets to say those three immortal words from the comics “No More Mutants”.
Chatting to Benedict Cumberbatch and Benedict Wong, we talked about returning as Strange immediately after the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the continued evolution of their characters – their flaws as well as their powers -, teaming up with Scarlet Witch, working with Sam Raimi and his return to the comic-book world after his Spider-Man trilogy and the surprises in store than fans will not be ready for.
