Doctor Strange 2 Writer On the MCU’s ‘Oncoming Collision’ with Another Universe

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness screenwriter Michael Waldron discusses the Incursion event headed the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s way.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness screenwriter Michael Waldron opened up about the “oncoming collision” between the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s core reality and another universe.

Waldron discussed the impending catastrophe, which was set up during the Doctor Strange sequel’s first post-credits scene, in an interview with† “Strange went to the Multiverse and tampered with it as much as you probably possibly could,” he said. “I don’t think it’s any surprise per the rules that Reed [Richards] laid out that he caused an Incursion. So now there’s an oncoming collision of universes. But what does that mean for the MCU? We’ll find out. But we’ve got a semi-corrupted Doctor Strange and Clea on the case! So it’s going to be a lot of fun.”

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness introduced the concept of Incursions to the MCU. Triggered by excessive Multiversal meddling, the disastrous event results in two different realities crashing into each other, destroying both. Doctor Strange’s actions in Multiverse of Madness allegedly set an Incursion in motion, prompting Charlize Theron’s Clea to appear unexpectedly and demand his help in putting things right.

Waldron recently shared how excited he was to bring Clea into the MCU and what it could mean for the next Doctor Strange story. “Clea has been Strange’s counterpart in the comics for a long time,” he said. “She’s an amazing sorcerer. She’s also his great love; she’s his wife at one point… I think [the end of Doctor Strange 2 is] the perfect place for him to be mentally to finally meet Clea, who’s gonna be a really important figure in his life moving forward.”

While Clea’s role in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was kept under wraps until opening night, several of the movie’s other big surprises were spoiled ahead of time. Waldron recently made it clear that MCU leaks don’t bother him, as he believes that many viewers manage to avoid these spoilers. †[Y]ou can come to think that if something is spoiled on a corner of the internet that suddenly the whole world knows. But they don’t. It’s the people who are actively seeking that out and who want to find that stuff [that get spoiled],” he said.

Waldron’s also not concerned about the controversy surrounding the Doctor Strange sequel’s PG-13 rating, either. “You know, I think the movies that were the most impactful for me were the movies that felt a little bit dangerous to watch as a kid, so it’s kind of fun to feel like we made one of those,” he observed.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is now playing in theaters.
