DR STRANGE 2. The film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has some surprises in store for fans of Marvel films. Especially in a post-credits scene.
After Spider-Man No Way Home, the Marvel universe at the cinema returns to dark rooms with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. This second episode of the adventures of the sorcerer Stephen Strange is directed by Sam Raimi who brought his special touch from horror cinema. Benedict Cumberbatch once again plays Doctor Strange and is accompanied, among others, by Elizabeth Olsen in the role of the Red Witch aka Scarlet Witch, whose character the Disney+ series WandaVision had greatly developed. Promised to an impressive box office, Doctor Strange 2 should create the event in theaters in France and around the world.
Y a-t- there a post-credits scene in Doctor Strange 2?
Do you have to stay until the very end of the film to discover one or more post-credits scenes to Doctor Strange 2? Like all Marvel movies, the answer is obviously yes.
Who is the character in the post-credits scene of Doctor Strange 2?
Attention spoilers from the first post-credits scene of Doctor Strange 2 in the next three paragraphs: In the first post-credits scene of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, Stephen Strange can be seen walking down the street before being challenged by a blonde-haired woman platinum in a costume reminiscent of those of the Eternals. This is actress Charlize Theron. Long in the state of rumors, his arrival in the MCU is now confirmed. In the credits, we can read that her character is called Cléa. She announces to Dr. Strange that he has caused an incursion (understand, the telescoping of two dimensions) and that she needs him to solve this problem. Clea then appears to tear reality apart to open a portal to this dimension. Doctor Strange then follows her with great pleasure.
Appeared in the comics in 1964, Cléa is a superheroine from the Marvel universe in comics where she rubs shoulders with Doctor Strange in different versions. Alternately, she could be his enemy, his lover, his wife… Cléa has many powers, including that of being able to move between dimensions in the Multiverse. Originally from the Dark Dimension (which is also sometimes called the Underworld, governed by Dormammu), she is sometimes the guarantor depending on the comics in which she appears.
It should be noted that Charlize Theron’s participation in the Marvel Cinematic Universe had been rumored for a very long time but had not yet been confirmed. The first post-generic scene of Dr Strange 2 therefore formalizes this arrival for the Oscar-winning actress who therefore joins the clique of actors who have made an appearance in Marvel films. Given the short duration of this cameo, it is easy to imagine that Charlize Theron will soon appear in a film, perhaps in a potential Doctor Strange 3 which has not yet been announced.
The second post-credits scene is more of a wink than anything else. It is certainly not essential but it has the merit of being quite funny. During the film, Dr Strange and America Chavez meet a pizza vendor played by none other than Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi’s sidekick in the Evil Dead saga. As he insists that America pay him, Strange casts a spell on him. The pizza vendor is going to bang on it for three weeks. At the very end of the Dr Strange 2 credits, we find this man, still beating himself up until his hand finally stops punching him and he exclaims, relieved: ” It’s finish !” At first glance, nothing extraordinary, but the whole sequence of the pizza seller is actually a reference to Evil Dead 2, a film in which Ash Williams (played by Bruce Campbell) sees his hand possessed and acts on his own until what he decides to cut it with the chainsaw. Fans of Sam Raimi’s cinema will appreciate.

What should you have seen before Doctor Strange 2?
The MCU tells us waters of several releases per year since 1054 and Iron Man. With the arrival of series on Disney+, there are even more elements of this shared universe for fans and the general public to watch. Is it necessary to have seen everything to enjoy Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness? As always, Marvel Studios got it right: it’s possible to watch Doctor Strange 2 with minimal knowledge of everything else, but those who’ve seen it all will enjoy it all the more. Here, the minimum to have seen would undoubtedly be Doctor Strange 1, Avengers Infinity War and Avengers Endgame. Add the Wandavision series to it if you wish, but Sam Raimi’s film does the job of hanging up the wagons for those who do not have a Disney + subscription. Fans who have seen the Loki series will already know everything there is to know about the Multiverse, while fans who have seen the animated series What If? will capture all the better the many winks of the film, but all this is not necessary for the good understanding of the film.
Do you have to have seen Doctor Strange 1? Yes, it is still essential to know who the character and his adventure companions are.
Do you have to have seen Spider-Man No Way Home? The movie takes the direct sequel to No Way Home for Stephen Strange. It is better to have seen it.
What are critics saying about Doctor Strange 2?
For Le Figaro, Sam Raimi “has absolutely not denied himself and even signs an auteur film”. Doctor Strange 2 is “a vertiginous and pop big 8, packed with action and full of visually incredible digital effects”. Le Figaro criticizes, however, that this great entertainment is “sometimes incomprehensible but so jubilant”. Le Parisien regrets “a deluge of images designed by computer, to the point of disgust” and a film “totally disconnected from reality, evolving in extraterrestrial dimensions far too complex and phantasmagorical for us to get attached to it.” The criticism of the Ile-de-France newspaper also announces the color: “we didn’t understand anything about the film”. The reason ? “The Multiverse encompasses so many dimensions that the plot is difficult to follow.”
Numerama, like many media outlets, praises Elizabeth Olsen’s performance as Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch . The actress “had demonstrated her talent in WandaVision: she once again captured all the attention. Magnetic, terrifying, touching, Elizabeth Olsen delivers a great performance”. In the columns of Large Screen, we wonder about the style of Sam Raimi in the service of Marvel Studios. Was it erased or not? “Hardcore Sam Raimi fans will find the filmmaker’s so recognizable style diluted like good wasted syrup, but the usual MCU blandness is shown to be darned lifted by this added flavor.”
Première answers the question “is Doctor Strange 2 a film by Sam Raimi? Good news: yes, undoubtedly, and we play Samraimian bingo with a certain pleasure in front of Multiverse of Madness by spotting cut effects stamped with sound stalwart editor Bob Murawski […] and some very surprising gore visions within such a locked down franchise.” For the Journal du Geek, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness “is a success. In front of the camera, the MCU sports a new hue: that of blood. If the cursor could have been pushed further, the filmmaker’s incursion into the franchise benefits from a singularity that we can salute.”

What age is recommended to see Doctor Strange 2?
Marvel films are traditionally made to be seen by as many people as possible, this is also the case with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. In France, Doctor Strange 2 is rated for all audiences. In the United States, Doctor Strange 2 received the classification “PG-10” which means that some images may not be suitable for children under 13 years. The MPAA, which distributes these ratings, specifies that this judgment was made because the film contains intense sequences of violence and action. There are also scary pictures and some swear words. We’ve seen the movie and can confirm that Doctor Strange 2 might not be the eye-catcher. The film, directed by Sam Raimi, allows itself some violent and sometimes frightening sequences such as we have never seen in a Marvel film to date. However, it is difficult to decide on a minimum age to see this film as the children and their level of maturity differ. Between and 14 years old maybe? No less anyway. Anyway, if you are unsure whether your child can watch these images, we advise you to go see Doctor Strange 2 without him to confirm whether or not you want to show him later.
