What happens at its end? Doctor Strange?
It Doctor Strange This sequel will focus on the negative consequences of using dark magical in the multiverse. After the Disney+ event WandaVision, in which Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) stole the Darkhold, a powerful ancient book of spells, from Agatha Harkness (Kathryn Hahn), the Avenger has become the Scarlet Witch, a powerful chaotic sorceress—and the villain of this film. She’s on a mission to reconnect with her twin boys, Billy and Tommy, who are not real kids, but manifestations of the family she wished she had with the dearly departed Vision (Paul Bettany). She must steal America Chavez’s powers (XochitlGomez), a multiverse-hopping teen, to join them in a new reality. Only way to do it is to kill America.

Doctor Strange employs a technique that is forbidden called Dreamwalking to take control of Zombie Strange’s body. America claims that there is a Doctor Strange in every multiverse. America trusts her abilities and Scarlet Witch uses them to demonstrate to Scarlet Witch that Scarlet Witch is not just a mother to her children, but also a monster. Shocked by who she’s become, Scarlet Witch chooses to destroy the Darkhold so no one will ever be tempted by its power again. She seemingly dies in the process—does anyone really die in the multiverse?—and Doctor Strange returns to his original universe ready to seize the day.
Stephen is now screaming in pain, and finds himself in New York City’s crosswalk, doubled up. He raises his head and the screen turns to black.

What’s the deal with Doctor Strange’s third eye?
Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness three new Doctor Strange variants are revealed, including one known to comic book fans as “Sinister Strange.” This evil variant with a third eye also popped up in the Disney+ series What If…?Cumberbatch, however, said otherwise. Total FilmThe Multiverse of Madness version is “something different” than what fans saw on that TV show. ScreenRant isn’t convinced that the third-eyed Strange appears at the ending of the movie. The Ancient One (Tilda Swainton) may have given him a prophecy. He might not even realize it.

First Doctor Strange film, the Ancient One tells Strange to “open his eye” before launching him through the different dimensions. At the time, it sounded like a metaphor, a reference to the mystical “mind’s eye,” which is usually depicted as an extra eyeball in the middle of one’s forehead that can offer a gateway to a higher consciousness. It seems that the Ancient One was instructing him open a third eye to see the truth. We are still unsure of the details.
As for how Doctor Strange acquired the additional eye, it’s likely it was awakened by the Eye of Agamotto, “a magical talisman created by Agamotto, a member of the Vishanti, a trio of supernatural, god-like entities,” according to ScreenRant. The Eye that Strange was wearing in Spider-Man has no way homeIt was then destroyed by Thanos. Avengers: Infinity War is said to reveal the “truth” to its user. The Eye grants Strange, in comics, the ability to open portals into other dimensions, and to pierce the Dark Dimension. This might account for the mystery woman appearing mid-credits.
What mystery woman is in the Mid-credits Scene?
Moviegoers will likely recognize Charlize Theron when she pops up in the stinger, but it’s not as easy to decipher who she’s playing in the MCU. Theron’s character shows up in New York City to invite Doctor Strange on a journey through an open portal to another universe. “Unless you’re afraid?” she teases. It’s a callback to Stephen’s last encounter with an alternate reality version of his love Christine (Rachel McAdams), who urges him to “face his fears.” This time he does. He unleashes his third eye and follows the woman—who is never named, but he appears to know her—into an unknown realm.

Based on Theron’s purple and black costume, fans have guessed that she is Clea, a mystical woman who has played an important role in the Doctor Strange Comics have been her mainstay since 1964. Clea, a strong sorceress, appears human but is in fact a member the Faltine Race, extra-dimensional energy beings created from pure magic. According to Mary Sue, Clea was born to Dormammu (a demonic tyrant thought to be even more powerful than Lucifer), who Strange defeated in the first. Doctor Strange film. Clea, the Sorceress Superior of the Dark Dimension is also known as Telekinesis.
What’s Clea’s connection to Doctor Strange?
Clea is one of Doctor Strange’s closest companions in the comic, having been his ally, disciple, wife, and, most recently, widow. This comic is from 2021. The Death of Doctor Strange Volume. 1 #4, Clea takes over the care of the Eye of Agamotto when Strange dies to save it. Clea tells him in his dying breaths that he has lost trust in her to keep the Eye of Agamotto safe. It is an indication of just how skilled Clea truly is.
What does Clea’s arrival mean for the MCU?
That Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange may not be long for the MCU. There is still the question: Doctor Strange 2 The question is, is Stephen happy? What is the answer to that question? The answer is not yet. Not yet. Clea may be his catalyst to overcome his fear and give up on the idea of falling in love.
There’s something about Strange’s current story arc that feels reminiscent of Iron Man’s: the arrogant goateed playboy who discovers love, becomes a mentor to the next generation of superheroes and finally finds real happiness, only to realize he must give it all up to save the world.

If Stephen does die—Cumberbatch is not under contract for another film—it doesn’t mean there will no longer be a Strange in the MCU. There are at most 73 possible Doctor Stranges in the Multiverse. (Cumberbatch also shared this story. USA Today last year that he’d be interested in sticking around the MCU “as long as the character is interesting and challenging.”) More notably though, after Stephen dies in the comics, Clea becomes the Sorceress Supreme of Earth and takes her late husband’s name. This is a chance for the MCU’s superhero cast to be more diverse.
Was there any surprise in the final scene of credits?
Bruce Campbell, a staple in Raimi’s movies, including his beloved cameos in the Spider-Man trilogy, shows up again as the Pizza Poppa street vendor who Doctor Strange put a spell on earlier in the film to let you know the movie’s officially over.
