Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness marks a rift in the inherently not-so-close relationship between Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen). Wanda has her own intentions, but is blocked by Doctor Strange. The entanglements between these two special characters in the MCU from the same position on the front line, have now become so serious that they can no longer be repaired.
Mother’s love faces accusations of breaking the laws of nature
If you think Wanda and Doctor Strange have no problems, then come to the first meeting of the two in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. At this time, Wanda revealed her true face, claiming that she was the one pursuing America Chavez because she wanted to possess her ability to travel the Multiverse.
What is the reason? According to Wanda, she just wants to go to a certain universe to live peacefully with her children, but needs to personally use the Multiverse travel superpower to protect them from disease, suffering and other dangers. But Doctor Strange vehemently objected, criticizing Wanda for wanting to break all the laws of nature and “talk like villains”.
Scarlet Witch feels unfair compared to Doctor Strange, when both “sacrifice” but only one is considered a hero.
Doctor Strange’s decision to survive was an intolerable mistake in Wanda’s eyes
This is when Wanda’s last kindness to Doctor Strange officially wears off. Wanda next blamed Doctor Strange for handing over the Time Stone to Thanos, leading to a series of traumatic events in which Wanda had to personally kill the one she loved, the Vision… for nothing. chief. In the end, Thanos still got what he wanted – the Mind Stone by reversing time, using the Time Stone that Doctor Strange once guarded.
Whatever you say, Wanda faced the shock of taking the life of the one she loved with her own hands
It is worth mentioning here that Wanda never knew about Doctor Strange’s prediction, about the odds of winning against Thanos being only 1/14,000,605. From Wanda’s perspective, Strange gave the Stone to Thanos, and it was an act she would never forgive. Doctor Strange in Wanda’s eyes is a quitter who has allowed the villain to gain the upper hand, depriving half of the inhabitants of the galaxy the right to live and live.
Why Doctor Strange gave the Time Stone to Thanos will forever be a secret to Wanda
The revelation in Doctor Strange 2 makes Strange even more “unreasonable”
However, the deeper we go into the content of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the more we realize this misunderstanding is more difficult to resolve. The presence of the Illuminati is proof that there is more than one possibility of Thanos losing in the Multiverse. But Doctor Strange’s move led to too much loss: Vision left Wanda, half of the population disappeared for half a decade, Black Widow and Iron Man died,…
Thanos can be defeated in many other universes
That alone was enough to make Strange have to “do not make sense” with Wanda. Yes, Strange had to make an extremely difficult choice in life, but conversely he could not use it to justify Wanda’s suffering and loss since Infinity War. Strange failed to realize there was more than one victory against Thanos some 14 million times across the Multiverse, and Strange had little to do with forcing Wanda to his will, whether by force or mind.
Wanda felt lost and chose Doctor Strange’s decision as the biggest source of blame
It’s a pity that the journey of the two most powerful magical subjects in the MCU does not have a happy ending. But Doctor Strange will return, and so will the Scarlet Witch (somehow). Let’s wait and see if the two have a chance to heal and stand together again!
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is showing in theaters nationwide.
