Actually, Doctor Strange should actually appear in the finale of the Marvel series. MCU boss Kevin Feige has now personally revealed why this did not happen.

– Attention: Spoilers for “WandaVision” will follow! –

At the time, there was a lot of excitement about the finale of “WandaVision”. That was not only due to Ralph Bohner (Evan Peters) but also to the star appearance supposedly announced by Paul Bettany. Ultimately, it turned out that the vision actor was just kidding himself and was talking about himself, after all, he played double vision at the end of the Marvel series.

Fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) had promised themselves all sorts of big surprises, the most harmless of which was a presumed appearance by Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). The Marvel star even apologized to the fans because he did not appear in “WandaVision” – which, according to MCU boss Kevin Feige, was actually planned.

Speaking to Rolling Stones, Feige revealed that there was an agreement with Cumberbatch to appear in the series finale. Ultimately, however, it was decided to write Doctor Strange from the episode. According to Feige, the reason was pretty simple:

“Some people may say, ‘Oh, it would have been so cool Dr. Strange to see ‘but it would have taken Wanda’s attention, which we didn’t want to do. We didn’t want to devalue the end of the series by moving on to the next film – here is the white guy.

Doctor Strange was also to star in the TV commercials in the Marvel series.

Feige’s argument is understandable, the appearance of such an important MCU character would have subtly distracted from Wanda’s (Elizabeth Olsen) adventure in the dramatic finale. Especially since she got the chance to discover chaos magic for herself, which could lead to interesting situations in the further course of the MCU. The first meeting with Doctor Strange should now be much more dynamic.

In addition to the appearance of Doctor Strange, the TV commercials in “WandaVision” were also supposed to be messages from the magician to Wanda; an appearance by the doctor was even planned for one of these commercials. Also the beginning of ” Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ” had to be rewritten because of these changes, as Feige explained. After all, Wanda and the title character of the film had hardly anything to do with each other in the MCU, so getting to know each other properly must first be established.

In addition, “WandaVision” didn’t even need Doctor Strange to announce Wanda’s appearance in his film. In the end, the heroine, now established as Scarlet Witch, received a cry for help from her children, who had actually disappeared. Wanda will probably try to find her offspring accordingly, which should lead her and Doctor Strange into the multiverse. We will find out exactly what adventure awaits them next year at the latest: “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” starts in cinemas on March 24, 2022.
