This movie has a lot of rumors and expectations Marvel-fans will have for this movie. Cameos, references, and characters that will eventually give nostalgia to theaters. But, what would the movie actually be about?

This February 19th, 2022, after the Super Bowl LVI in LA, California. We got our first Dr. Strange TV spot that revealed a big piece of the puzzle.

First, let’s take a look at our first TV Spot and the only one we have (yet). In this second trailer, we have more evidence pointing to new characters. Here are some theories of new characters that are rumored or even confirmed for the movie.

1. Dr. Strange

Even if this character is 100% confirmed, there are facts that you probably didn’t know about it. The character Dr. Strange, being played by Benedict Cumberbatch, will have some variants of himself helping him or trying to exterminate him.

Variants: Defender Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Sinister Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), Supreme Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Imagine playing the same role four times!

2. Wanda Maximoff

Again, this character is 99% confirmed, meaning this is not something new. But, this character also has a variants.

Variants: Depressed Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen)

3. Iron-Man (Tom Cruise)

Alright, this character has been rumored a lot because back in 2007, when they were doing casting, the famous actor Tom Cruise was thinking about acting for the steal-dude character. but in the end (and as we all know) the studios gave the role to the stunning actor Robert Downey Jr. which even Stan Lee was shocked that Robert perfectly matched the character.

4. Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire)

This actor has also been rumored a lot; this is because after the multi-millionaire and amazing movie “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, the actor Tobey Maguire realized how special it is to play a big role like Spiderman; he also got a lot of nostalgia from playing the character. With this in mind, many people think he might be given a chance to play the character again. Also, if we are talking about a movie about Multi-verse where there are an infinite number of characters that can join the big screen, why not have a character like the human-spider be in the story?

5. The Amazing Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield)

Garfield) It is hard to believe that Marvel-fans actually want more of Spider-Man after his triple arrival on the big screen this past December 17th, 2021. After the successful movie, the amazing actor Andrew Garfield, really took serious the fact that he is still young to make more Spider-Man movies. Like Tobey, he really enjoyed being inside the suit and doing those amazing stunts with his two best friends, or brothers, as he said in the movie. He really missed playing the character. “I don’t play Spider-Man for the money. I do it for the feeling and being the actual character,” Andrew said. So there are probabilities of having the wall-crawler in theaters again.

6. Deadpool (Ryan Rynolds)

After years of silence, the actor Ryan Rynolds is still denying his appearance in any Marvel movie yet, but this does not mean he will not be in any Marvel movie. Anyway, the studios wanted to get more close to the comics because they thought they weren’t getting close. This character first appeared in comics in 1993 in the comic “The New Mutants #98” and since then, he started being mentioned in other comics and mostly in Spider-Man comics.
And in newer comics, Deadpool and Spider-Man have been a duo of justice.

In other words, the multiverse is a concept about which we know frighteningly little.
