Marvel fans are experiencing a real explosion of emotions and theories after the release of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”, first in theaters, being one of the most watched films of the year and now streaming to Disney Plus.

And, while there are still many questions about “Doctor Strange 3”, there are several answers that suggest the return of the protagonist and various characters in the film.
Is that the second feature film left more than one door open for new events that could change the course of the hero. In this sense, get the sense of the post-credits scenes of “The Multiverse of Madness”, since it will finally be revealed what will happen to one of the most relevant avengers of this phase.
“Doctor Strange 2”, not only left two things about whether the story would go directly to America Chávez, how it would affect the destruction of the Darkhold at the hands of Wanda Maximoff or even what implications the return of the Fantastic Four would have for the future. Those two, also lead to whether an upcoming appearance of the Supreme Wizard will be in his third film or some other Marvel production.
Questions also arise when thinking about whether Benedict Cumberbatch would continue to play the role of one of the most important heroes for the eponymous title, or whether any other character could take his place as is happening in this Phase 4 of Marcel with other heroes. , where their legacies pass to female characters. Although now, as for Strange, it seems like it’s not the time yet.

Another return would be that of his new henchman América Chávez (Xochitl Goméz); and the same, the Bite played by Chiwetel Ejiofor could return, either the Illuminati version or the version we saw in the 2016 film.
But in a post-credits scene from “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” actress Charlize Theron appeared as Clea, a witch connected to the villain Dormamu (who already appeared in the MCU) and comes from the dark dimension, he is asked for help. to Stephen Strange because their actions caused the collision of two universes that could collapse the entire multiverse, and they need to stop this (they could even recruit Mordo to achieve this).
Now, there is no Marvel or Disney announcement about “Doctor Strange 3” let alone an official synopsis. But keep in mind that there is a possibility that a third film is the farewell of Benedict Cumberbatch as the Supreme Wizard, so the story would also go to find a way to close the story and retire to Strange of a. convincing form.
But also, there are those who say that the appearance of Reed Richards as one of the Illuminati also points to the Fantastic Four being on the way (John Krasinski is a candidate to star, but is not yet confirmed as part of the cast, nor no further details on the film) and the possibility of having a crossover with the same Strange.
