Many fans wanted this to happen!
In WandaVision, we see the Scarlet Witch discover her true powers, imprison a city with magic, control the minds of hundreds of people, and fight a great battle against a witch. In all of this, there is no sign of Doctor Strange, the supreme protective mage of Earth, but he was considered to appear in the series.
Jac Schaeffer, executive producer and showrunner told TV Line that due to the direct connection between WandaVision and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, a participation of Doctor Strange has been discussed by the show crew.
“We had a lot of conversations. We spoke to the Doctor Strange team, and that’s how it went, ”he said. However, Schaeffer did not elaborate on what was discussed and what they had planned, declining to respond if they had contacted representatives for Benedict Cumberbatch to make the participation happen. “I can’t talk about that sort of thing.”
Earlier this week, during his participation in the Fatman Beyond podcast, Matt Shakman, the director of the series, confirmed that the team of the two projects was in dialogue.
“The writers’ room [de Doutor Estranho 2] it was on the side of our office. So we chatted for a while and later, since we were wrapping up our shoot and Doctor Strange 2 was about to begin, I spoke to Sam Raimi [diretor do filme] sometimes, and our artistic departments have spoken. We wanted to make sure there was a perfect transfer [entre as histórias]. ”
It’s worth remembering that Benedict Cumberbatch apologized to fans who expected Doctor Strange to be on the show. Either way, the Supreme Magician and the Scarlet Witch will meet in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
