Now that the Marvel movie, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnesshas reached the Disney+ platform, the screenwriter michael waldronhas revealed that the story had a sinister alternate ending, which Sam Raimi’s finished film did not show, where Earth-616’s Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) traverses the multiverse and kills Sinister Strangehis evil variant corrupted by the Darkhold after using the dark magic from The Book of the Damned to dreamwalk through the multiverse, murdering other Stranges while searching for a world where he could be with Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams).
This version of Stephen Strange triggers an incursion, causing his reality to collapse in on itself and that same annihilated reality is left behind following the death of the Sinister Strange, and 616 Strange returns to his universe with his supernatural third eye open.
Now, in the alternate ending revealed by Waldron in the digital release’s audio commentary: “Strange gets trapped in that universe [de incursión]… and then [Sinister Strange] turns around and opens the third eye”accentuating the twist ending change was going to be horror icon Vincent Price’s laugh, which could remind us of Price’s narration in Michael Jackson’s song Thriller, giving it a special touch:
“That’s the bill that’s due. As Wong says, ‘You used the Darkhold to possess your own corpse.’ Surely, there must be some consequences.”Furthermore, Waldron mentioned during an exclusive interview with ComicBook that the final scene of the film, in which Strange’s third eye painfully appears after using the Darkhold to save the teenager America Chavez by Xóchitl Gómez, traversing the Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen) multiverse:
“It was a bit of a throwback to the old Evil Dead [del director Sam Raimi], and that whiny ending, or it’s like, ‘Oh my God, things went wrong in the end. Then yes. We’ll see what all that means for Stephen.”so instead of trapping Strange in Sinister Strange’s reality destroyed by a raid, Doc Strange 2 ends on a different cliffhanger when he meets Clea (Charlize Theron) from the Dark Dimension.
“The Multiverse has forced a mirror in front of his face and forced him to reflect on himself, which I believe he has refused to do,” Waldron pointed out. “Even when he had that accident [automovilístico] initial [en Doctor Strange]Instead of really thinking about who he was, he went off and became the most powerful sorcerer in the world. This is a guy who doesn’t want to go. to therapy. I think now there’s been some forced self-reflection over the course of this adventure, and I think he’s probably more capable than ever of working as part of a team.”
