“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” from Marvel Studios, continues the MCU practice of slipping in some goodies during the credits. Those who see the film can look forward to a midi-credits tease as well as something following the credits. We’re here to tell you if there are any post-credits/end-credits scenes without giving you any specifics in a spoiler-free manner. Doctor Strange Multiverse of Madness Post-Credit is finally here and there are two post-credit scenes. Let’s get started
The first post-credits scene is eerily similar to the bizarre sequence we mentioned previously in the film’s conclusion. Dr. Strange is accompanied by a mystery woman from what looks to be the dark dimension that emerged in Doctor Strange (2016) and is home to Dormammu, the Destroyer of Worlds while roaming the streets of New York. Clea is played by Charlize Theron, who makes her Marvel Cinematic Universe debut as the enigmatic figure in an ornate purple outfit.
This surprise appearance of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which was preceded by some suspicions that eventually proved to be accurate, is particularly intriguing because Clea is not only Dormammu’s niece in the comics, but she is also the love interest of our favorite surgeon. The woman pleads with Strange for help since the fate of a reality is at risk in the film’s sequence, but we don’t know who the Doctor will have to fight to save our planet. Perhaps the comics can still help us: in the original stories, Clea reluctantly joins forces with Stephen to combat his uncle Dormammu, who we recall having come to terms with the protagonist in the first Doctor Strange, and so is not defeated.
Is it possible that the strong cosmic entity wishes to restore its place in the universes by seeking to conquer the Earth once more? Knowing Feige’s techniques, we may expect to see references to this storyline in future films or series in order to figure out where we want to go. Before we go onto the second scene after the credits, which we expect to be pointless in the context of the House of Ideas, there is one little but crucial detail to note: the appearance of the writing “Doctor Strange will return.” Contrary to popular belief, our favorite sorcerer might star in another feature picture (perhaps even one directed by Sam Raimi, but you have to check the box office numbers) or even a television program.
Returning to the present, the other post-credits sequence of Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness picks up on a scene from the film. After taking their first voyage through the multiverse together, America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) and Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) arrive in a seemingly utopian universe. America, on the other hand, immediately attracts the wrath of a street seller after stealing a bowl of their pizza balls, presuming the food is free. After a humorous scene in which the street vendor sneers at both America and Strange, the sorcerer casts a spell on the disgruntled citizen that drives him to punch himself for several weeks. The bruised, red-faced street vendor is later caught up within the film’s post-credits sequence at the exact moment the spell fades. “It’s over!” exclaims the vendor, who looks directly at the camera. This stranger is played by Bruce Campbell, Raimi’s historical fetish actor, who addresses the audience in the room once the spell is broken by simply stating, “It’s over!”
Campbell’s two cameos also do an excellent job of making the MCU picture feel like a credible addition to Raimi’s oeuvre. Fortunately, Campbell’s presence in the film is only one of several imaginative choices made by Raimi during Multiverse of Madness that make it feel like an MCU addition that only he could have directed.
