Life has never been easier Wanda Maximoff And since the character first appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve been following her complex journey. She lost her parents as a child, then her twin brother, Pietro, Ultron and eventually killed VisionThe greatest love of his life, even murdered.

Amidst the pain, Avenger created the perfect reality for herself, but when that didn’t work out, she saw her world collapse before her eyes with her family, which would make anyone mad. It was at this point that we found her in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” which hits theaters on Thursday (5), an ambitious production that breaks Marvel standards to bring an unprecedented horror story to the franchise. Emotions.

In the story – which is directly related to the events of the first series of the Marvel Cinematic Universe “WandaVision” – Wanda is more powerful than before, now she’s a Scarlet Witch and wants to regain the life she once had. Westview at all costs.

In spite of Doctor Strange After claiming that all this was a fraud, Avenger convinces her that if she ends up in another reality, she can get her whole life back. She has to search for it America Chavez, A young woman with a wonderful power to travel between different realities. However, recognizing that Wanda is no longer the same, Doctor Strange does everything to stop her from getting her hand on the girl.

Direction Sam RaimiReturning to the world of superheroes after directing the first trilogy Spider-ManReleased between 2002 and 2007, “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” follows the Marvel Cinematic Universe model 4: it doesn’t look like we’ve seen it before. Of course, there is “Marvel Essence” that has won many fans over the years, but the film still has many unique elements, including “Vandavision”, “Loki” and “Moon Knight”, for example.

While the film is a Doctor Strange story, the highlight is undoubtedly Wanda. The character turned from enemy to enemy to the thrilling moments of “Multiverse of Madness”, from action to emotion and Elizabeth Olsen Completed on paper, we find Scarlett the witch terrified, but still sympathizing with Wanda and all her sorrows.

The biggest problem with “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”, however, is the lack of direction it brings to the franchise. This is less than a picture mistake Kevin FeizPresident of Marvel Studios, and others responsible for continuing the franchise after “Avengers: Endgame”, the most important event in the series so far.

The film ends this arc of Wanda’s story, but leaves no concrete clues as to what to expect in the future. With “Multiverse of Madness”, eleven productions have already been released and so far, Marvel’s plans for the future of the franchise have no idea and everything ends in speculation. No major event is in sight like “The Avengers,” which caused the first stage to finish in 2012, and it leaves a bitter taste in the mouth even after such a good movie.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is no longer alone and has become a great story, with productions filling the space, in the end, to form a puzzle. If Marvel decides to treat its productions as they did in the first three stages, and some of them are completely detached from the main story and move them when they see fit, even the most loyal fans may eventually lose interest. .

However, this “problem” does not diminish “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”, which has the potential to make fans jump in the chair with excitement like “Spider-Man: No Return Home.” Extend what we already know about Marvel Multiverse and reintroduce us new – and, not so new – characters, which you sure hope to see more of on the big screen.
