My Excitement for the Future: Doctor Strange

2021 is here and there’s a lot to be excited about but mainly, I’m thrilled to be returning to the storylines of so many characters and franchises in the coming months. I’m starting a new series featuring each of my favorite characters from different franchises and what I’m most excited to see with them. So, I decided to start this series with none other than my favorite superhero in the MCU, Doctor Strange.

If you had told me five years ago that Doctor Strange would end up becoming my favorite MCU superhero I wouldn’t have believed it but it became a fact after Infinity War.

We got to see him as the awesome Sorcerer Supreme that he is, handling business and taking on Thanos by himself with one of the most awe-inducing fight scenes in the MCU, no matter how short it is.

Now it seems that the magical doctor will be playing an even bigger role in the MCU moving forward. There’s already been confirmation that Doctor Strange will appear in WandaVision which makes sense considering that the Disney+ series has already been confirmed to tie into Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. But that’s not even all!

Spider-Man 3 will feature Doctor Strange in a mentor-like role to Peter Parker in the similar vein to Tony Stark and Nick Fury’s mentor-like roles in both Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far from Home. You have no idea how excited I am about this.

‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ and My Thoughts of the Cast

So, during last week’s Disney’s Investor Day, there were some welcome announcements. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was one of those pieces of entertainment that was further elaborated upon and the surprises were definitely there.

Of course, there was the obvious; Benedict Wong and Chiwetel Eijofor would be reprising their roles as Wong and Mordo, Elizabeth Olsen would be in the film for some reason (most likely as a secondary or the primary antagonist) but there was the unexpected.

In Doctor Strange, McAdams played Strange’s love interest, Christine Palmer and while I understood that she was designed to be in the movie solely to be a love interest I felt that she was very boring in the film. Like Natalie Portman’s Jane Foster, she brought nothing to the story and honestly, I was very much hoping she wouldn’t return for the sequel.

Well, she’s back and I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. It seemed like she had pretty much ended her relationship with Stephen Strange but somehow she’s going to play a part in this show. There’s a comic storyline where she plays a superhero called Night Nurse or something like that so maybe they could incorporate that into her story.

I don’t know. They just need to make her more interesting.
