    The First Trailer For "Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness" Is Here, And Now We Know Where Wanda Is After "WandaVision"

    Doctor Strange, Wanda Maximoff, and America Chavez are my new favorite trio already.

    🚨Warning: There are MAJOR spoilers ahead for Spider-Man: No Way Home.🚨

    I personally have to hand it to Marvel, they really give us no time to relax and just love throwing content at us left and right. That's all to say that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness officially has its first teaser trailer.

    After debuting as the second post-credits scene in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Marvel dropped the first trailer online today, and it was well worth the wait.

    Basically, this is a pretty accurate representation of what I looked like while watching it in the theater and just now.

    Following the massive events of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange is now dealing with some major problems after cracking open the multiverse to help Peter Parker (whoever he is 😉).

    We also get our first glimpse at Wanda Maximoff after WandaVision, so just know I am very much lying face down on the ground.

    So, here are all the details and Easter eggs we need to talk about right now after watching that teaser trailer:

    1. First, the trailer opens with us hearing Wong telling Doctor Strange not to "cast that spell" and Doctor Strange talking about the multiverse, which is all dialogue from Spider-Man: No Way Home.

    Strange says "The multiverse is a concept about which we know frighteningly little"

    2. We get this amazing shot of Doctor Strange's reflection in his broken watch, a watch we previously saw in Doctor Strange. Also, the watch being broken could symbolize how time (and space) are fracturing.

    3. Doctor Strange ends up in a decaying version of our world, and it appears as though the Mirror Dimension — which we've visited in Doctor Strange and Spider-Man: No Way Home — is collapsing.

    4. Rachel McAdams makes her first appearance since Doctor Strange as Dr. Christine Palmer, and we catch a glimpse of her wedding. It appears to not be her wedding to Stephen, though.

    5. In our first look at America Chavez, who will be played by Xochitl Gomez, you can spot her signature star from the Marvel comics on her jean jacket. The star represents her ability to create star-shaped portals that allow her to trek across the multiverse.

    6. The first thing Wanda does is apologize to Doctor Strange for Westview — I'm emotional — and we can see that she's no longer living in the house we saw her in during the WandaVision post-credits.

    7. The door we see Doctor Strange, America, and Christine and/or Wanda open could finally be giving us a look at the Nexus of All Realities from the comics.

    8. Chiwetel Ejiofor reappears for the first time since Doctor Strange as Karl Mordo. This time around, he's rocking a gold and green outfit, which closely resembles Baron Mordo's look in the comics.

    9. You can see that Wanda's Scarlet Witch outfit has changed slightly since we last saw it at the end of WandaVision, and I'm fully freaking out about it.

    10. When Doctor Strange is performing some magic toward the end of the trailer, you can see that he's using red magic, which is associated with Chaos Magic, aka the magic Wanda wields.

    11. Doctor Strange appears to use his magic to create some... tentacles? Snakes? Something. I'm assuming this is him, once again, harnessing Dark Dimension magic.

    12. Doctor Strange and America Chavez can be seen in the street fighting what appears to be Shuma-Gorath. In the comics, Shuma-Gorath is a mythical one-eyed, multiversal tentacle monster who often clashes with Doctor Strange in the comics.

    13. And finally, the teaser trailer ends with us coming face to face with another (probably evil) version of Doctor Strange, who we previously saw a version of in What If...? Episode 4.
