Marvel released the first teaser trailer for "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness."
The trailer debuted at the very end of "Spider-Man: No Way Home" screenings.
Marvel's next film is in theaters on May 6, 2022.
If the multiverse was starting to seem wacky in "Loki" and "No Way Home," it looks like things will only continue to get more out of hand in "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness."
The first trailer teases a darker version of Doctor Strange which Marvel fans already got a taste of in Marvel's animated "What If...?" series.
Let's breakdown a few quick highlights from the fast-moving trailer.
Doctor Strange's former friend, Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor), is now his enemy.
It looks like knowledge of Disney+'s animated "What If...?" series will be useful as it looks like we're going to see an alternate, darker version of Strange. In the animated series, another incarnation of Strange on a parallel Earth went to great lengths to try and save the love of his life, Christine (Rachel McAdams), from dying.
It never worked and led him down a dark path which eventually destroyed his world.
The teaser hints that we'll watch his downfall play out. We see a version of Strange appear to have tentacles shoot out of his arms. In "What If...?" the alternate Strange absorbed the power of mythical beings to become nearly unstoppable. It's a bit tough to spot in the trailer until you slow it down.
The film sees the return of Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen). When we last saw her in "WandaVision," she was starting to peruse dark magic. Here, Strange seeks her out, but he may be in over his head and get more than he bargains for when asking for her help.
In addition, the trailer teased a new hero. America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) makes her MCU debut in the trailer. The character goes on to become Miss America.
Marvel Studios also released a poster for the film teasing the return of Wanda and fractured versions of Strange.
Directed by Sam Raimi (the original "Spider-Man" trilogy), "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" will be in theaters on May 6, 2022.
