Speaking at a press event in Berlin (via Screenrant), Sam Raimi said of Benedict’s hero, “He’s grown a bit throughout the Avengers movies I’ve seen. I think at the beginning of this film, he starts off as a very confident person – maybe too much – who feels that she is the one who controls all the decisions best. It’s the safest that way… He has the most trust in himself, and not so much in others.”

He added: “And I think in this photo, this little chapter of his life, he’s learning to let go a bit. That it’s not all about him. [and] that he can trust others.”

While Disney and Marvel Studios are waging a “measured marketing campaign” for the film, it has become difficult to decipher the exact narrative of events. Meanwhile, Patrick Stewart’s involvement in the project has been confirmed, with the actor set to return as Professor X.

The synopsis of the film reads –

“In Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the MCU unlocks the Multiverse and pushes its boundaries further than ever before. Journey into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies old and new, Traverse the mind-bending and dangerous alternate realities of the Multiverse to face a mysterious new adversary.”
