New Magazine Cover Suggests Dinosaurs Are Coming To The MCU
The Marvel Cinematic Universe has featured aliens, robots, and even zombies, but it never dipped into the world of dinosaurs. However, it looks like prehistoric creatures could enter the MCU via Doctor Strange 2thanks to a new magazine cover filled with Easter eggs.
New ‘Doctor Strange 2’ Magazine Cover Features a Dinosaur
The next issue of Empire will be all about the strange doctor sequel, and one of the images is a classic Marvel magazine cover. It features Doctor Strange in the center, and around him are several smaller images that tease the upcoming MCU movie. And one of the Easter eggs on the cover of Empire is an image of a dinosaur, leading fans to believe that Savage Land is part of Doctor Strange 2.
The Savage Land is a prehistoric tropical location hidden in Antarctica in the comics. It’s a place where dinosaurs roam and where superheroes, especially the X-Men, often visit.
After seeing the trailer, fans first speculated that Doctor Strange 2 would introduce dinosaurs to the MCU via the Savage Land. The video features Doctor Strange and America Chavez falling through a forest with dinosaurs hiding in the background. So now, with the latest issue of Empire, it’s clear that the MCU now has dinosaurs. However, they likely exist in a different universe.
Benedict Cumberbatch Compares ‘Doctor Strange 2’ To Another MCU Movie
By speaking with Empire on Doctor Strange 2Benedict Cumberbatch has made a bold prediction about the next MCU movie.
“It’s a big, big movie,” the actor teased. “It’s going to be an absolute riot. And if he brings the level of ambition he has, we’re going to have Spidey-level success. Here, I’m going to plant my flag in the sand.
Fans last saw Doctor Strange in Spider-Man: No Coming Home, which featured him with Peter Parker accidentally tearing the multiverse apart. The events of this film lead directly to the strange doctor sequel as the wizard deals with the consequences of messing with the multiverse. It is therefore not surprising that Doctor Strange 2 could potentially perform at the same level as the third Spider Man movie.
More, Doctor Strange 2 is unquestionably ambitious given that it features dinosaurs in the MCU.
Everything we know about the upcoming ‘Doctor Strange’ sequel
The MCU cast of Doctor Strange 2 includes Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange, Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch, Benedict Wong as Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Karl Mordo, Xochitl Gomez as America Chavez and Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer.
Although Marvel has yet to verify the casting news, Patrick Stewart has confirmed the rumor that he will be in the film. Stewart previously played Professor X in the x-men film series, but his role in Doctor Strange 2 is unknown. He’s probably reprising his role as Charles Xavier or playing some variant of the mutant.
Other rumored cameos include Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool, Tom Cruise as Iron Man, and John Krasinski as Reed Richards. However, fans probably won’t know if these rumors are valid until the movie hits theaters.
The synopsis for the strange doctor The sequel reads, “Journey into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the aid of mystical allies old and new, traverses the mind-bending and dangerous alternate realities of the multiverse to face a mysterious new adversary.”
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness premieres exclusively in theaters on May 6.
