This year, Spider-Man: Far From Home set the stage for myriad realities to explore within the MCU. It’s true that Jake Gyllenhaal’s Quentin Beck wasn’t actually from another dimension. Regardless, the multiverse is very real concept that Marvel Studios intends to develop. Kevin Feige once again confirmed as much while plugging Marvel’s next slate of films at CCXP in Brazil.
It’s not exactly a secret that the heroes of the MCU will visit other universes once Phase Four gets underway. Obviously, the title of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness provided the first official indication that this was happening. But according to Feige (via CBR), the existence of alternate worlds will have an even bigger role to play in the years to come.
“The multiverse is the next step in the evolution of the MCU,” said Feige. “And Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is gonna crack it wide open in ways that will have repercussions for a Disney+ series just before it, that’s not WandaVision, and for movies just after it in a big, fun way.”
Feige previously revealed that the Doctor Strange sequel will spin out of the events of WandaVision, which hits Disney+ in early 2021. The streaming service’s upcoming Loki series will also tie into the film, but it’s interesting that Feige neglected to mention this show by name. The only other series premiering before Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness opens in theaters is The Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which arrives in the fall of 2020. However, it’s hard to imagine the multiverse playing a role in a series that’s being described as a spy thriller.
