Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to fully explore the concept of the multiverse. Directed by Sam Raimi, the film will feature the first-ever team-up of Benedict Cumberbatch's titular sorcerer alongside Elizabeth Olsen's Wanda Maximoff, but the initial meeting of the two heroes will be very different after what transpired during WandaVision.
During the aforementioned Disney+ series, Wanda became the Scarlet Witch, a being of immense power that could destroy reality. Wanda was in an unusual state during her last on-screen appearance since it was revealed that she is studying the Darkhold to potentially bring back her twin sons, Billy and Tommy.
It is unknown if the twins will return in the Doctor Strange sequel, but a new rumor may hint that the future Young Avenger members will indeed be part of the big-screen project.
A WANDAVISION CONNECTION TO DOCTOR STRANGE 2
Somersetlive shared in a report that Marvel Studios is filming scenes for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in Somerset.
The outlet revealed that local sources have captured images of “the £2m set at a county farm,” and filming has been taking place between April 15 and April 17.
In the report, nearby residents Josh and Matt “heard Marvel Studios were filming at Burrow Hill Cider Farm, less than half an hour from Yeovil.”
The final filming reportedly took place on “Saturday afternoon [April 17] in the form of a drone shot" outside at the aforementioned farm.
According to Josh and Matt, the scene revolved around two twin actors who are said to be Jett Klyne and Julian Hilliard, who both played Billy and Tommy Maximoff in WandaVision.
The pair also “heard mention” of MCU veteran Elizabeth Olsen “possibly” being on-site, but this piece of information is not confirmed.
Kevin Feige said that Doctor Strange's sudden exclusion from the 'WandaVision' finale forced a rewrite for 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness."
Kevin Feige described 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness' as a "wonderful combination of very dedicated coordination, and chaos. Chaos magic."
Elizabeth Olsen teased the "horror show vibe" of 'Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.'
THE RETURN OF SCARLET WITCH'S TWINS
It is no secret that the production of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has been very secretive, but it seems that the emergence of this new rumor may have broken that wall.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige previously confirmed that the Doctor Strange sequel is in its final week of filming, and this scene could very well end up as one of the final moments of the much-anticipated MCU project.
It remains to be seen if this will be the case but, on a plot level, this makes narrative sense since it could point to the resolution of Wanda's mission in bringing back her twins from being erased from the Hex.
It is reasonable to assume that Wanda's meddling with the Darkhold is the reason for Doctor Strange's involvement. The Sorcerer Supreme could provide insight regarding the consequences of Wanda's actions as well as giving a clear direction of what really happened to Billy and Tommy.
There is a good chance that Wanda's twins are being trapped by the sequel's villain somewhere in the multiverse, and it's up to the powerful MCU pair to find them and put an end to the madness aspect of the whole ordeal.
The twins could also be used as leverage for Wanda, and the villain could even force the Scarlet Witch to fight Doctor Strange to save the lives of Billy and Tommy. If anything, the possibilities are endless, and it will be interesting to see how it will unfold.
From fixing the multiverse to finding the whereabouts of twins, Wanda and Strange have a lot on their plate, and the looming presence of an unknown villain will spell more trouble for the pair.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to premiere in theaters on March 25, 2022.
