I had an epiphany the other day. I was thinking about, well, Marvel and something dawned on me.
The last Marvel movie to have a trailer as a post-credit scene for another MCU film was The Avengers at the end of Captain America: The First Avenger. The Avengers, of course, was the studio’s first ensemble film which managed to bring together a group of remarkable people to see if they could face the battles most never could. The Earth’s Mightiest Heroes lived up to the hype, stopping Loki and his invasion on Earth in a film that not only changed the game for the superhero genre but proved that Marvel Studios was, in fact, not a fluke.
So, considering that was the last MCU film to have a trailer as a post-credits scene is Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness secretly the latest Avengers movie? It makes sense if that were so.
Last year each film was very much a standalone story; from the series to the movies, the stories never really required a multitude of superheroes from different properties to save the day. Even Doctor Strange played a menial role in Spider-Man: No Way Home, allowing the focus to truly shine on Spider-Man and his story alone.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the first movie that is actually going to feature a multitude of heroes, Wong, America Chavez, and of course Wanda a.k.a the Scarlet Witch. And that’s not the only heroes we will see in this movie.
There are rumors that we will be seeing a multiversal Avengers team in this film comprised of a group of heroes that I will not disclose in this post. I will say this though, the rumored members of this team is going to have people cheering again for sure.
And with so many cameos destined for this movie this truly does feel like a major event coming our way this May and I am ready for the showdown. What’s going to happen, how will it affect the MCU moving forward, and is this in fact, technically, the next Avengers movie? I think it is.
Here’s the trailer if you need a quick reminder of the awesomeness that awaits us.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
