The following contains spoilers for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, usually that every comic-book movie is littered with Easter eggs, but when you''ve got a comic-book thriller that involves literally everything, it''s not exactly a surprise that an Amulet of Agamotto is featured. We''ve included as many as we can find right here in this comprehensive list.
The Illuminati Feature Some Familiar Faces
The MCU Illuminati, which includes five Marvel heroes from Earth-838, with a limited cast of people in this world, is still alive, thanks to the film''s variety of trailers and promotional materials. Depending on how many people are there, Krasinski is likely to play Richards in the upcoming Fantastic Four film, which features a modern version of San Juan.
I Understood That Reference
In Multiverse of Madness, we don''t just get Professor Xavier, but we get a version of him that looks like it was in the top right hand hand of the popular animated X-Men TV series from 1992 to 1997 (and Disney+ will soon be reviving). However, Peggy does not just inherit Cap''s shield and abilities in this universe, but also confesses to an attacking Wanda Maximoff, "I am doing this every day."
Reading Is Fundamental
The first is the Darkhold, a powerful tome developed by the Elder God Chthon, who gets nicknamed-dropped in the film. In the comics, the book also appeared as a plot point on Agatha Harkness, a Marvel TV series that streams on Hulu. You may vary on whether or not the two things count as MCU canon.
Marvel Comics Deep Cuts
In the following scenes, the Miriam Xiao is the protagonist of the film, starring Jonas Lazaret, who is the protagonist of the film. In the next scenes, the Miriam Xiao is the protagonist of the film, as well as Richard Baldwin, who is the protagonist of the film. According to the author, the film "Incursions" is more visible in the series than in the original.
What Universe Are We in Now?
Doctor Strange visits two other alternate planets during the film: Earth-838, where the Illuminati protect the people and red lights mean go, and another darker reality where an incursion left the place in apocalyptic turmoil. (Strange asks who did this, but the answer never comes.) And the funny part is that mysterio was just completely making a hit up at the time. What are the odds that he did it right?
Name That Tune
In Multiverse of Madness, there are a few brief but difficult-to-miss musical calls. The motif that recurs throughout WandaVision''s various theme songs makes an appearance. Instead, Captain Carter''s arrival is accompanied by an X-Men theme from the animated X-Men TV series. So, keep an eye on that earworm while you rest of the day.
Yeah, but Where''''s Mickey?
Wanda''s kids are seen seeing an Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoon. Because, in the real world, Oswald was an early Walt Disney character that, due to rights issues, was eventually replaced by Mickey Mouse. However, in Earth-838, things appeared different, and it''s fairly possible that Oswald not Mickey became the face of Disney.
Sam Raimi''''s Old Buddy Makes an Appearance
Most people in Multiverse of Madness expect Sam Raimi to appear again in the film, but none of them anticipate him to play the chef in Earth-838. In addition to the yellow 1973 Oldsmobile Delta, which was first shown onscreen in the original Evil Dead and has made a cameo appearance since. Strange and Christine take a look at the dark, incursion-afflicted universe.
