The true identity of the newcomer, known only as “Sinister Strange”, remains a mystery. Early fantasies speculated that Sinister Strange was none other than Doctor Strange Supreme in the animated series What if…?. However, Benedict Cumberbatch, the actor who plays and voices for all of the aforementioned Stranges, has since refuted this theory.

As shown in Loki series, the Marvel Cinematic Universe variants of any person may vary more than their personality. This includes race, sex and in some cases species. While the differences between the two Stranges are not as noticeable as Loki‘s famous alligator variant, the other Sorcerer Supreme, appears paler and tattered, practicing purple-toned magic as opposed to his opponent’s standard orange.

The film takes place a few months after the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home. Left to pick up the pieces after nearly crushing the Multiverse, Strange will explore the alternative realities that exist outside – and threaten – his own. However, he will need some help from other Master of the Mystic Arts, Wong, as well as Scarlet Witch. By tampering with forces he himself does not yet understand, Doctor Strange’s explorations will put him in direct conflict with these other universes and the secretive organizations that control them.


Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness marks a major departure from other films in the MCU that promise to be a more scary episode. Highly marketed as with several horror elements, it received a 12A rating from the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC).
