Following last week’s debut of the first official teaser for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, a brand new promo art has arrived online which hails from Hasbro’s upcoming Doctor Strange 2 line of Marvel Legends figures. The sequel is currently slated to arrive in theaters on May 6, 2022.
In an Instagram post shared by packaging artist Jerry Wilson, the new Doctor Strange 2 promo art, which you can check out below, provides us with a closer and better look at Marvel Cinematic Universe newcomer Xochitl Gomez’s America Chavez in the fan-favorite character’s comic-accurate costume.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness sees the return of Benedict Cumberbatch as he reprises his role as Dr. Stephen Strange. This time the Sorcerer Supreme will be joined by Wanda Maximoff/ Scarlett Witch, portrayed by Elizabeth Olsen who is coming off from the critical success of WandaVision. The sequel is expected to tie into the events from WandaVision, Loki and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
The sequel will also feature MCU alums Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, and Rachel McAdams, who are reprising their roles as Karl Mordo, Wong, and Dr. Christine Palmer, respectively. It will also feature the introduction of the live-action debut of fan-favorite Marvel hero America Chavez., who will be portrayed by newcomer Xochitl Gomez (The Baby-Sitters Club).
Described as the first MCU horror film, it is directed by Sam Raimi (Spider-Man trilogy) from a script written by Emmy-winning scribe Michael Waldron (Loki). It is executive produced by Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige.
