Doctor Strange 2 Merch Gives Possible First Look At Kaiju Villain
The first glimpse of the movie’s kaiju villain Shuma-Gorath appears to be in a piece of merchandise from the MCU sequel Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness. Although Phase 4 of the MCU is technically devoid of a major team-up movie such as The Avengers, Doctor Strange 2 next year might be close to meeting the criteria. Sam Raimi will direct the eagerly awaited sequel. It will feature Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, fresh from his appearance in Spider-Man: No Way Home. Although plot details are still being discussed, one thing is certain: He’s going into the multiverse.
Rumours have been swirling for over a year about the Marvel Comics antagonist Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness. Nightmare has been a popular choice due to its horror-themed aspect. Some fans wonder if Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), which is confirmed to be a part in Doctor Strange 2, will take on the role of villain. A report from earlier this year suggested that Elder God Shuma Gorath would be Doctor Strange’s true villain.
The new merchandise for the film is quite possible if you believe the claims. Booktopia Australia has a Doctor Strange 2 coloring book, puzzle and puzzle available. It depicts Doctor Strange fighting a creature with green skin. Comics fans will recognize this as Shuma Gorath’s usual look. This suggests that he will be fighting Doctor Strange in the sequel.
Doctor Strange 2 was delayed from March 2022 to May 2022, meaning it is still more than half a calendar year away. It was released earlier than expected. This is due to the fact that it has been delayed many times by the coronavirus pandemic. This is a common side effect, which results in the early release or some merchandise. Thus the early glimpse at Doctor Strange 2’s Shuma Gorath.
This merchandise looks true to the movie. Although it might seem a little silly to some, it is in keeping with the Doctor Strange comics’ visual style. The first movie was a brief glimpse at the unique and wild images that can be created by the mystic arts. But the sequel will go deeper. Doctor Strange 2 should embrace the strangeness of its hero’s universe. This suggests it has so far. That makes 2022’s movie even more exciting.
Marvel’s What If …? will feature Agent Carter as a superpowered agent. The premiere features a surprising villain who may be seen in Doctor Strange’s Multiverse of Madness. Marvel’s new series, What If …?,, gives Marvel fans an opportunity to see alternate timelines within Marvel’s Multiverse. The premiere also gave Peggy Carter (Hayley Awell) her due. The episode focuses on Captain America: The First Avenger’s events, and Carter decides not to view Project Rebirth from safety in the booth. After the program is attacked, Steve Rogers (voiced by Josh Keaton in What If …?) is injured. By Josh Keaton, Carter is then taken to the super-soldier chamber and granted the powers of Captain America. She is then named Captain Carter.
The timeline is drastically altered by the Captain Carter’s change. Steve Rogers transforms into a version the first Iron Man by wearing a HYDRA-stomping, metal suit. Bucky Barnes (Sebastian Stan), does not become the Winter Soldier. However, he jokes that Captain Carter nearly ripped off his arm when rescuing him from falling from an elevated train. Red Skull (Ross Marquand), cannot access the Tesseract at first, which alters his plans. Red Skull wants to summon the “true champion HYDRA” from above the stars.
You can also alter events with What If …? It is possible that this new threat to Marvel Cinematic Universe was teased. Red Skull summons his champion and uses the Tesseract as a portal to a tentacled creature. The monster is too powerful to control, and it seems to have killed Red Skull, potentially threatening safety on the whole planet. Captain Carter defeats the beast through the portal and disappears with it. She appears from the portal 70 years later, in front of Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson). Although the name of the monster Carter defeated is not known, it appears to have been Shuma-Gorath. This villain was rumored to be for Doctor Strange 2.
There are many clues to the identity of this villain. Shuma-Gorath is one of the Old Ones and a mysterious, one-eyed, tentacled creature in Marvel’s comics. Although the entirety of the creature is not visible in the What If …? premiere, it’s possible to get a better view. The tentacles could hint at the true identity of the monster. Also, what if …?? This is about the Multiverse, and all the possibilities that may arise now that the Sacred Timeline in the MCU has been destroyed. It makes sense that Disney’s new show would tease the villain, given Shuma-Gorath’s deep connections with the Multiverse in comics.
There are many implications to a potential Shuma Gorath appearance. What If …? reveals the events. The events of What If…? are canon in MCU’s Multiverse. Hayley Atwell is rumored as Captain Carter in a live action appearance in Doctor Strange 2. The episode could tie in with the Doctor Strange sequel as Shuma-Gorath is also rumored. This could mean that Red Skull and Bucky Barnes (non-Winter Soldiers) as well as scrawny Steve Rogers may appear in the episode. Shuma-Gorath is not confirmed to be the villain in Doctor Strange 2. What if Marvel’s What If …?? Here’s a spoiler for Doctor Strange in The Multiverse of Madness: premiere
