The movie options the titular Master of Mystic Arts dealing with a menace endangering the existence of the Multiverse. The menace is Elizabeth Olsen’s Wanda herself, who remains to be not over the lack of her youngsters that she made out of nothing in WandaImaginative and prescient, and is trying to find them in different realities to fill that void in her life. She has actually change into the Scarlet Witch because of the cursed literary artifact Darkhold that provides its readers powers but in addition turns them evil.
Across the course of the film, Strange together with Wong (Benedict Wong) take the cost to guard America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) upon themselves. Wanda needs to soak up the woman’s powers to journey throughout realities, which would go away her lifeless.
At one level, Wanda takes on the Illuminati — Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart), Reed Richards or Mister Fantastic (John Krasinski), Captain Marvel (Lashana Lynch), Captain Carter (Hayley Atwell), Black Bolt (Anson Mount), and Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) — on her personal and kills all of them besides Mordo (who’s trapped and is unable to return to his comrade’ support. It is simply after Strange takes maintain of a parallel universe model of Darkhold that he’s in a position to defeat Wanda. But like what occurred to Wanda, studying the cursed guide comes at a price for him too. He develops a 3rd eye in consequence like Sinister Strange. The full significance of that’s not defined but in MCU, but it surely can’t be good.
The author of the film, Michael Waldron mentioned the third eye was the toll Strange needed to pay for studying Darkhold. “The bill comes due, as Mordo warned in the first movie. He used the Darkhold to possess his own corpse and the Darkhold exacts a heavy toll. I guess the question that our tag is asking is: is Stephen embracing that darkness? What does that mean for him? What path is he going down as he meets Clea and haunts off to the Dark Dimension?” he advised Screenrant.
The Clea within the quote is the Marvel character that debuted within the mid-credits scene. Played by Charlize Theron, the character is a talented sorceress and Strange’s love curiosity in comics. She opens a rift in actuality casually utilizing a blade and invitations Strange to undo the harm he brought about (incursion) whereas defeating Wanda. The rift reveals the Dark Dimension, the abode of terrifying beings like Dormammu, the demon we noticed within the authentic movie. Interestingly, Clea is expounded to Dormammu (she is his niece) in comics, the place she and Strange fought in opposition to the demon and defeated him.
Strange could have defeated Wanda, however it’s clear Darkhold has left a mark upon him. It can be fascinating to see how that performs out within the sequel.
