Analyzing the Teaser Trailer for ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’

Well, the teaser trailer is here and that means it’s time to start theorizing about what this movie could be about to show us as well as the potential storyline taking place in Doctor Strange’s latest trippy adventure. Enjoy!

The teaser trailer starts off by having Doctor Strange echo the words he told Peter Parker: “The multiverse is a concept about which we know frighteningly little.”

The first shot we see of Doctor Strange is here in the broken watch that Christine gave to him as a present. This shot reminds me of a scene from What If…? where we see Doctor Strange lamenting Christine as he holds the Eye of Agamotto.

One thing What If…? made very clear was Doctor Strange’s love for Dr. Palmer and despite things not working out between them in Doctor Strange it doesn’t mean that he’s forgotten her.

Will Christine be a partial driving force of this movie? It’s very possible.

The Top Ten Post-Credit Scenes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

I haven’t done of these ranking posts in a while but after watching Ant-Man the other day and seeing the film’s second post-credits scene (which is the scene from Civil War when Falcon mentions recruiting Ant-Man) I got serious chills and a yearning to write this post. So, here we are, trying to rank ten out of many awesome post-credit scenes. Here we go.

10. Is Steve Rogers Still Alive?-What If…?

I may be in the minority here when I say that What If…? is one of the best entries in the entire MCU but I, personally, loved every second of it. The animation was gorgeous, perfectly illustrating the characters to make them feel almost lifelike, most of the actual actors were able to voice their characters which, of course, added extra depth to the story, and each week’s episode surprised me more than the last.

For this to be Marvel Studios’ first venture into animation they did a remarkable job.

And to end off the season we got another wonderful tease, that being Steve Rogers’ potential survival into next season. Will he be evil like Bucky or will the story take a different turn? Whatever the case, I’m excited to see what happens next for Captain Carter’s story.

9. Thanos’ Debut-The Avengers

THE AVENGERS - Thanos Post-Credit Scene (2012) Movie Clip - YouTube

Nine years ago a movie came out called The Avengers. It was an unprecedented achievement as it brought together six of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and shattered the box-office with its engaging story and iconic moments. The experiment that was the Marvel Cinematic Universe had paid off and from there it’s been quite the ride ever since.

But Kevin Feige had something greater in mind. An endgame that would lead to the highest-grossing film of all time thanks to a certain purple villain whose name would end up sending chills down the spine of any avid MCU fan; Thanos.

His first appearance in the MCU is small as he performs an out-of-character evil grin and simply side-eyes the camera with foreboding music playing in the background but for loyal comic book fans, they understood exactly what was coming. I, however, did not but after watching Infinity War I understood what the hype was about.

Where Does ‘Eternals’ Rank in the Marvel Cinematic Universe?

It’s time to see where Eternals lands. Oh, and because I forgot, let’s see where I end up ranking What If…? as well. Enjoy!

30. The Incredible Hulk

Eternals isn’t the worst MCU film. This is. It’s so bad, it’s not on Disney+.

29. Thor

It’s got one of the best-acted scenes in the franchise between Tom Hiddleston and Anthony Hopkins when Loki’s birthright is revealed but…that’s the only great thing about this movie.

28. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

There’s too much hollering, the jokes aren’t as funny, Ego is an okay villain, Yondu’s death is corny, and Gamora gets sidetracked for this story a bit. The only thing that keeps me coming back is how gorgeous this movie is.

A Definitive Ranking of the Episodes of ‘What If…?’: From Worst to Best

Well, it’s finally that time. The super fun What If…? series has reached a conclusion in its first season and now it is time to rank every episode. Enjoy!

9. What If…The World Lost Its Mightiest Heroes?

Despite this episode being fun for what it was I was ultimately a bit bummed by its rushed final minutes which flew through the story and concluded in an abrupt way. But it had its humorous moments and it was fun seeing how they utilized Loki in the episode.

8. What If…Captain Carter Were The First Avenger?

Despite absolute LOVING Captain Carter her episode was a bit boring in the fact that it felt like the least creative episode in the series. It basically took the storyline of The First Avenger and transplanted her into the role of the First Avenger, with a few tweaks along the way. And while that was enjoyable, the other episodes were entirely different beasts.

7. What If…Zombies?!

This episode was enjoyable with its incredible use of humor to balance the horror aspect thanks to the zombies. There were a lot of good jokes in this episode and the Zombie-fighting Avengers consisting of Spider-Man, Bruce Banner, Okoye, Sharon Carter, Bucky, Wasp, Happy, and Kurt was fantastic. They were a team I didn’t even I know needed.

The Guardians of the Multiverse Are Here!

The finale of What If…? has arrived and yes, it serves. The Guardians of the Multiverse have been formed to save the universe from Ultron’s genocidal machinations and boy are they awesome.

Captain Carter, Star-Lord, Killmonger, Doctor Strange Supreme, Black Widow, Gamora, and Party Thor were the ultimate team and I loved everyone of their additions. Captain Carter and Doctor Strange were the undoubted MVPs’ of the show as they managed to display their awesomeness in abundance. (I’m going to need live-action versions of them in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness asap.)

And yes, the showdown lived up to the hype. Ultron’s power was not diminished to make it an easy fight for the heroes. In fact, this finale showdown is actually one of the most tense in the MCU with so many jaw-droppingly awesome (and uh-oh) moments.

So yes, the finale was fun, it wasn’t my favorite episode, that still belongs to the fourth and eighth episodes, but it was a fitting finale. Now onto Season 2.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.

The Finale of ‘What If…?’ Is Tomorrow!

I’m so excited for 3am. Yeah, that’s the time I get up to watch What If…? and it has been one of the highlights of my Wednesdays for the past…eight weeks! Wow this show has been on for a long time.

Each week’s episode provides a surprise and last week’s penultimate episode was straight 🔥. Now we’re getting the finale tomorrow and, well, here’s this week’s poster for it.

Yeeeessss. Gamora arrives to save the day! Oh, I just know the finale of What If…? is going to be absolutely fantastic and I am bursting at the seams with excitement. It’s going to be epic, I just know it.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day.
