Nobody who has gone to see Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness can deny that the various multiversal sets-pieces are some of the most inventive to ever appear in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Recently, Strange composer Danny Elfman outlined the meanings of one of the most visually and aurally spectacular scenes.

Spoilers must follow the following guidelines.

The Doctor Strange sequel is filled with exciting fight scenarios, some of which are just unsettling, but one hands-down twist comes when the Master of the Mystic Arts confronts one of his multiversal variants and things take a musical turn. Grabbing sheet music from the titular Strange, the hero begins a series of fun encounters with each other while dumping it out for possession of The Darkhold.

Danny Elfman, a composer, spoke to Collider about the scene, admitting that he initially didn''t understand the director Sam Raimis concept at all. But with a little letter, and a last-minute assist from Marvel President Kevin Feige, the actors managed to take the scene off. According to Elfman:

In the eleventh hour, Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, said, "Lets just really unify it to Beethoven vs. Bach." Then, the president said, "It was a lot of fun." In the first hour, the group also redid Bachs Toccata and Fugue, but it was completely different. In the end, there was two or three different incarnations of the process.

The effort was excellent. Despite the difficulty and the difficult time, the scene surpassed the rest of the film''s most memorable scenes.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently showing in theaters.
