Doctor Strange 2 Ending Explained

Anyone who knew about the multiverse would go crazy. In “The Multiverse of Madness,” Doctor Strange saw Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) using the Darkhold and demons to find American Chavez (Xochitl Gomez). Wanda has turned into a full-on Scarlet Witch after the events of WandaVision, in which she forced the whole town of WestView to work for her. She now wants to be with her kids Billy and Tommy again, and the only way to do that is to use Chavez’s dimension-hopping powers to go to a universe where Wanda is happy, kill her, and take her place as a loving mother. Naww. Of course, that’s not the Avengers hero talking. Wanda’s soul has been taken by the Darkhold.

Before Wanda becomes a full-on villain, though, we see Chavez escape one of Wanda’s demons with the help of an alternate version of Doctor Strange. When Strange offers to sacrifice Chavez, she freaks out and opens a doorway through the multiverse to another universe, Universe 616, which is the main Marvel timeline. She brings the demon and the dead Strange with her, but our Doctor Strange, who was at Christine’s (Rachel McAdams) wedding, is there with the new Sorceror Supreme, Wong (Benedict Wong), and they defeat the demon.

Soon, they figure out that Wanda is the one making trouble. Strange, Wong, and Chavez use a lot of warriors to defend Kamar-Taj, but Wanda gets through. So Chavez freaks out and punches herself and Strange all over the universe. In this new, greener universe, called Reality 838, they are looking for the other Strange who lives there. Mordo, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor, works at the Sanctum Sanatorium. He poisons people who break in, putting them to sleep so they wake up in glass boxes. They are in the Baxter building, where another Christine lives. Christine also calls Earth-616 by its name in the original Marvel timeline.

Mordo takes Strange to The Illuminati, a group of people who protect the multiverse and are kind of like the Avengers. Reed Richards (John Krasinski), Professor X (Patrick Stewart), Captain Marvel (Lashana Lynch), Captain Carter (Haley Atwell), and Black Bolt are all members (Anson Mount). They say that the Strange they knew tried to use the Darkhold, and because the book had changed that Strange, they had to kill him.

In the meantime, Wanda takes over Wanda 838’s body, heads to the Illuminati, and brutally kills everyone there. Strange gets away with Chavez and Christine 838, and they eventually go into another multiverse hole to find the Book of Vishanti, which is the exact opposite of the Darkhold. Wanda is hot on their trail, though, and she destroys the book, steals Chavez, and takes her back to Universe 616, where the Scarlet Witch will take her powers. Strange and Christine are sent to a place that is like the netherworld, where different universes once ran into each other and caused an incursion.

Strange and Christine find the Sanctorum, where they meet the version of Strange from that universe who guards a different Darkhold. Strange 616 wins the music battle between the Stranges. Then, he takes the Darkhold and uses its powers to take over the body of the Strange, who was killed at the beginning of the movie. With the help of Wong and Chavez, who sees how powerful she really is, they defeat Wanda, who then destroys the Darkhold. Chavez brings Strange 616 back to his universe, and she trains at Kamar-Taj with Wong. Strange walks around New York after saving the day, but then a third eye pops upon his head.

In a scene after the credits, Charlize Theron (!!!) shows up, and Strange shows how he can now control his third eye. Then, in a second scene, a pizza delivery man, played by Sam Raimi’s longtime partner Bruce Campbell, finally stops hitting himself in the face and tells us “it’s over.”

Does Scarlet Witch (Wanda) die in Doctor Strange 2?

The main bad guy in Doctor Strange 2 turned out to be Wanda Maximoff, who went all the way to the dark side in her quest to find her kids after losing them in WandaVision. She has been using the Darkhold to use magic that comes from chaos. Among the people she has killed are the Illuminati, most Kamar-warriors, Taj’s, and a version of Doctor Strange. But when she’s almost done with her job, it’s too much.

In the last episode, Chavez hits Wanda back into the 838 reality with a punch. Here, she meets her children from this reality. They are scared of the Scarlet Witch and beg their mother, Wanda 838, to save them. Wanda 616 is heartbroken when she looks at herself through the eyes of her children and sees how much chaos she has caused. She goes back through the portal and tells everyone to leave her evil lair, a temple, before bringing the whole place down on top of her.

Is there any way Wanda could have lived even though she was crushed by the rocks? Or is the Scarlet Witch still alive? Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness doesn’t make it clear what’s going on at the time. Even though it’s a horrible sacrifice, we don’t see her body, and Marvel is known for bringing characters back from the dead, so we shouldn’t get too excited just yet.

Elizabeth Olsen recently talked about her future in the MCU and talked about this. She told Variety, “It’s weird that I’m expecting to come back but no one has told me what I’m doing.” “But in my head, I’m just assuming that they’ll want me back. I’m not sure in what way, but I hope to be back. I hope there’s also something else that’s more fun.”

The actor also talked about her last scene in the movie and whether or not that means her character is dead. She said this to Access Online: “I don’t think she could ever leave, especially since there are many worlds. But I’m not sure, because I think she knows what she’s done. I don’t think she’s gone, though.”

Doctor Strange 2: What’s The Deal With Stephen’s Third Eye?

In the last scene of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Stephen Strange is walking quickly through New York when a third eye opens on his forehead. This hurts him a lot. Later, in a scene in the middle of the credits, Strange agrees to go with Clea (Charlize Theron) to fix a problem that he seems to have caused. Just before he steps through a portal with her, his third eye opens again.

In both cases, Stephen’s third eye looks a lot like the one on the head of the version of Sinister Strange he fights earlier in the movie. Unfortunately, none of the scenes in the movie explain where Stephen got the third eye or what it’s for, though it’s clear that having it isn’t good for him. In fact, Stephen may have gotten the third eye when he used the Darkhold to beat Wanda, according to something Wong said near the end of Multiverse of Madness.

Doctor Strange does sometimes show up in comics with a third eye on his forehead. But that third eye usually comes from the Eye of Agamotto, which is the same magical object that Doctor Strange wears around his neck in the MCU. In the comic book version of the talisman, the person who wears it can, among other things, playback to recent events and see certain truths about a person’s soul. When the talisman is used, the person who has it usually gets a third eye on their forehead.

But in the comics, only magic users who are on the side of good can use the Eye of Agamotto. Sinister Strange is most certainly not on the side of good in Multiverse of Madness. So, it seems reasonable to think that Doctor Strange’s third eye in the MCU might turn out to be a little different from the one in the comics. We still don’t know how these differences will show up or what problems they might cause for Strange.

At The Last :

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ends with Stephen Strange and Wanda Maximoff going in very different directions from where they started. It does what every good MCU movie should do: Bring some arcs to a close while setting up new stories for both characters at the same time.
