New 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' Teaser Welcomes the Illuminati

After screening the first 20 minutes of the film at CinemaCon 2022, Marvel on Friday dropped off a new teaser for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Alongside Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dr. Stephen Strange, the new teaser reveals that America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) and Wanda Maximoff’s Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) will play a role in the film’s storyline, which will see Dr. Strange and his team combat an emerging threat after opening a portal to the multiverse.

The preview does not explain Dr. Strange’s role in the multiverse or what has happened to it, though it does confirm that he will meet the MCU’s Illuminati. For context, in Marvel’s comics, the Illuminati represents a hidden superhero society that pulls from various types of characters, including the Avengers, Wakanda, Atlantis, mutants and more.

The film, directed by Sam Raimi, will also star Chiwetel Ejiofor as Karl Mordo, Benedict Wong as Wong, with Michael Stuhlbarg as Nicodemus West and Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer. The movie was first reported to run for two and a half hours, but it has since been confirmed that the official runtime is two hours and six minutes.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness premieres in theaters on May 6. Watch the latest teaser above.

Elsewhere in entertainment, Netflix has shared the official trailer for Money Heist: Korea — Joint Economic Area.
