Ending the long wait of the MCU fans, ‘Dr Strange in The Multiverse of Madness’ can possibly see an X-men crossover. In the trailer of the film, Dr Strange can be seen handcuffed before a group of shady figures. A voice from the background says, “We should tell him the truth” and the viewers can see a blurred glimpse of a bald head. While the face of the voice is not revealed, it sounded a lot like actor Patrick Stewart, who played Charles Xavier aka Professor X in the X-Men franchise.

Actress Elizabeth Olsen reprised her role as a grieving Wanda Maximoff in the Disney+ series ‘WandaVision’, which premiered early last year. With a nine-episode arc, the miniseries took place after the events of ‘Avengers: End Game’. Olsen returns in Doctor Strange with a significant role, but the trailer suggests that he may be leaning towards a more villainous side. “You break the rules and become a hero. I do it and I become the enemy. That doesn’t seem fair,” she says as the Scarlet Witch in the trailer. Wanda meets herself in one epic moment when she confronts the Scarlet Witch.

Dr Strange's Alternate Reality

The later can be seen saying, “Things just got out of hand” in the trailer suggesting at a plethora of problems that Dr Strange might have created while trying his stunts in the movie ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home. The trailer also shows Dr Strange in a helpless yet arrogant form where he does not listen to anyone and does what he deems fit.
