Some newly revealed Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness concept art confirms Marvel Studios at least considered sending Doctor Strange and America Chavez to a world inhabited by a lot of Deadpools.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was far from disappointing, but its take on the Multiverse, well, it wasn’t quite as “mad” as we hoped. That can partially be blamed on ridiculously high expectations, especially as it’s hard to complain too much about the likes of Mister Fantastic, Professor X, and Black Bolt showing up!
The fact is, we’re spoiled, but there’s no denying that Marvel Studios missed a trick by not doing something with Ryan Reynolds’ Merc with the Mouth.
Deadpool 3 is in the midst of pre-production, and the Doctor Strange The sequel could have been the perfect place to pull Wade Wilson into the MCU. It seems there was once a plan to at least tease the character with a visit to a world that, for whatever reason, is plastered with Deadpool posters!
You can see the posters in the concept art below, and given Deadpool’s own ties to the Multiverse (he has a lot of Variants), this “cameo” would have made perfect sense.
Oddly enough, as revealing as the Assembled special looking at Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is, there’s not a single mention of John Krasinski’s Mister Fantastic. With that in mind, we have to believe that the actor was an extremely late addition to the blockbuster.
