The world is waiting with open arms to welcome Galactus in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
After a long time, Marvel Studios and The Walt Disney Company have the rightful ownership to the live-action film and TV rights to the Fantastic Four franchise, which includes villains like Galactus.
This does make sense, in a way, at least for now, to introduce the world-eating villain in the upcoming film Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
Why Doctor Strange?
Fans are raising curious eyes as to why the sequel to Doctor Strange was chosen for Galactus’ entry.
The franchise is already under immense threat from Dormammu, so introducing another villain will not be something that will surprise or in this case, shock fans.
Moreover, with both Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch on an inter-dimensional road trip, the film will truly be Marvel’s first step into the world of “scary” movies.
Galactus in Doctor Strange:
Before digging deeper, it should be clear that Galactus might not be a fully-fledged antagonist in the sequel to Doctor Strange.
The makers believe that it would make more sense if the character were to have some fight sequences during the inter-dimensional travels or post-credits in some way.
Considering that the Doctor Strange franchise is, in a way, MCU’s free pass to introduce larger than life ideas, this villain would fit right into it, that too quite comfortably.
A plot twist maybe?
Imagine this scenario, Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch have taken down the main antagonist of the Multiverse of Madness, like Nightmare.
They get back into the Sanctum Sanctorum, and along with them, something else also manages to come through it.
They then hear a cling on the ground and turn around to see a silver-colored surfboard laying on it. What do you think will happen next?
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is slated to release in the summer of 2021.
