Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness took fans on a journey to every corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, building on the mind-bending concepts that are standard part of the Doctor Strange franching. While moviegoers got to see all sorts of multiversal goodness, even more was cut from the film, including some of the character’s main supporting cast.
A new piece of concept art circulating online from Aaron Black of Weta Digital shows the Vishanti forming from a cosmic cloud. By the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth, am I right?
Who are the Vishanti?
The Vishanti are a trio of characters who essentially oversee the entire realm of magic within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. You have Hoggoth, the character who appears as an interdimensional tiger; Agamotto, the first Sorcerer Supreme after which the Eye of Agamotto is named; then there is the enigmatic Oshtur, the sister of Chthon and Set, and the mother of the aforementioned Agamotto.
The movie, the Book of Vishanti, is an important MacGuffin as it serves as the antithesis of the villainous Darkhold.
Will there be a Doctor Strange 3?
Despite the sizable box office run of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Marvel Studios has yet to greenlight a threequel. Either way, Strange star Benedict Cumberbatch hopes to keep playing the character for a while yet.
“I hope so. I’d love to do another one,” Cumberbatch told New Indian Express. “Doctor Strange is such a complex character and it feels like there’s so much more to explore with him. He’s such a brilliant character and I still enjoy playing him.”
Marvel Studios describes Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness as follows: “To restore a world where everything is changing, Strange seeks help from his ally Wong, the Sorcerer Supreme, and the Avengers’ most powerful Scarlet Witch, Wanda. But a terrible threat looms over humanity and the entire universe that can no longer be done by their power alone. Even more surprising is that the biggest threat in the universe looks exactly like Doctor Strange.”
