Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness brought some of the biggest moments in MCU history, along with plenty of the scariest in the process. Plenty of cheers came with reveals for characters like Captain Carter and Reed Richards, while other plot twists like a newly evil Wanda Maximoff certainly brought some screams out of the audience.
Even though it suffered through one of the worst second-weekend drops in MCU history, fans are still coming out in droves to see what the MCU's Multiverse and magical stories have to offer. With so many heroes and villains making such a big impact throughout this 2-hour-6-minute-long movie, merchandising opportunities have skyrocketed in the two weeks since it debuted in theaters.
On the merchandising front, Entertainment Earth is back in the game as it is for all MCU releases, already having released several Funko Pop! figures centered on some of Doctor Strange 2's biggest characters. Now that the movie is out in full, with most of the world experiencing the madness, the company is back in force showcasing some of the moments and characters that remained a secret until May 6.
Spoilery Doctor Strange 2 Funkos Revealed
Entertainment Earth opened pre-orders for five new Funko Pop! figures featuring spoiler-filled moments and characters from Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
"I could do this all day."
Hayley Atwell's Captain Carter stands fully suited up with the United Kingdom's flag adorned on her chest plate and shield. This Illuminati member made the jump from the animated What If...? series to play a key role in the MCU's secretive Multiversal team alongside Patrick Stewart's Charles Xavier and John Krasinski's Reed Richards.
"Who said they have to be living?"
The zombie version of Defender Strange shines in his own Funko, showing off his rotting mouth and forehead along with his shredded costume. The prime Earth-616's Strange used the Darkhold to Dream-walk into his doppelganger's corpse in Doctor Strange 2's third act in order to stop Wanda Maximoff's own dangerous actions.
"I made some sparks!"
After learning to control her own powers, Xochitl Gomez's America Chavez embraces the mystic arts at Kamar-Taj, as depicted in her new Funko Pop!. This figurine features the future Young Avenger trying to learn how to use a new kind of magic as she settles into Earth-616.
"The Darkhold extracts a heavy toll..."
Benedict Cumberbatch portrays a third version of the good doctor known as Sinister Strange, who engages in battle with the prime Strange in the film's third act. The two utilize the Sanctum Sanctorum's musical instruments in a magical version of "battle of the bands," ultimately ending with one note from the harp sending Sinister Strange out of the window and to his death.
"This time, it's gonna take more than killing me to kill me."
Fully embracing the Darkhold's magic, prime Strange uses Defender Strange's corpse to charge the Scarlet Witch, who was fully immersed in her evil ways during the sequel's final fight. Both using the Book of the Damned, the evil spirits making up Strange's cape help him to hold Wanda at bay as he tries to save America Chavez.
Captain Carter, Scarlet Witch, Sinister Strange, Oh My!
With Doctor Strange 2 being the closest thing the MCU has ever had to a true horror movie, Marvel Studios put a heavy focus on some of the darker magic that made its presence felt throughout the plot. Whether it was the Scarlet Witch's villainous turn or the introduction of a Stephen Strange who truly lost everything he ever loved, director Sam Raimi and his team delivered countless memorable moments from every angle.
While there are countless plot points to celebrate from Doctor Strange 2, these Funkos capture plenty of what Marvel brought to the big screen with the master magician's second solo outing. Even more exciting is the fact that they all focus on some of the movie's biggest spoiler-filled scenes, with each Pop! commemorating something between the Illuminati's introduction scene and America Chavez's final moments of screen time.
As the sequel continues making its run in theaters, fans will certainly be on the lookout for more collectible items to help bring back memories of the Multiverse's first full storyline within the MCU.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now playing in theaters worldwide.
