Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the eagerly awaited sequel from Marvel Studios, was published in 2022.
Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), a neurosurgeon turned Master of the Mystic Arts, made a return appearance in the sequel.
He embarked on an adventure that ventured outside the known Marvel Cinematic Universe into brand-new, perilous alternate realities of the Multiverse to face the impending threats.
The movie closes on a cliffhanger, showing Doctor Strange calmly strolling through New York City's streets before suddenly stopping in pain and displaying a third eye sprouting from his forehead.
A later post-credits sequence introduces Clea (Charlize Theron), a previously unidentified sorcerer.
Before entering a vortex leading into the Dark Dimension, she goes in search of Doctor Strange to apologize for provoking an incursion and asks for his assistance.
Since then, fans have looked for hints as to where Doctor Strange would make his subsequent live-action debut.
Fans are curious as to whether or not Strange could get one more solo outing before stepping up to the plate and taking on the incoming Council of Kangs as we move through the Multiverse Saga and on.
