Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’s new poster appears to contain a variation of Captain Carter’s shield from Disney+’s What If…? Now, a Disney+ official account appears to have announced the character’s inclusion in the film.
Disney+ IT shared a photo of Carter on Twitter. The caption basically translates as “It seems that shield has recently reappeared somewhere … doesn’t that sound like ‘Madness’ to you?” While this is not definitive proof that Captain Carter is in Multiverse of Madness, it does present an indication that she could be.
The titular hero, who first appeared in What If…? Season 1, Episode 1, “What If… Captain Carter Were the First Avenger?” is a version of Peggy Carter who is strengthened by the Super Soldier Serum rather than Steve Rogers, as shown in the first episode of the season. She subsequently appears in Episode 9, “What If… The Watcher Broke His Oath,” as a member of a multiversal Avengers squad tasked with taking down Ultron in the episode “What If…” Additionally, Captain Carter will star in her own standalone comic book series, set to release later this year.
What If…? was written and directed by A.C. Bradley, and it was released in 2021. It discovered several alternate timelines in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For a second season, the animated series has been revived; a release date for the next season has not been set at this time. Captain Carter will, however, make a comeback in What If…? Season 2, which will premiere in 2019.
A sequel to 2019’s Avengers: Endgame and 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home, Multiverse of Madness finds Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) traveling into the unknown to face a strange menace, as well as his erstwhile comrade Karl Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor). His journey will take him through several character variations, as well as encounters with characters such as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), Wong (Benedict Wong), and America Chavez (Benedict Wong) (Xochitl Gomez).
Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness is a spin-off to 2016’s Doctor Strange, which introduces the eponymous character to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In addition to grossing $677 million at the box office, the movie garnered overwhelmingly good critical reception, getting an 89 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes. In spite of the fact that filmmaker Scott Derrickson was originally set to direct the sequel, Derrickson withdrew from the project in 2020 due to creative differences.
Directed by Sam Raimi and penned by Michael Waldron, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to be released on May 6.
