Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the most anticipated film of the summer, is officially in cinemas. Although the film met the expectations of the audience, some questions remain unsolved. Doctor Strange’s third eye was one of the most frightening and terrifying scenes in the film, and it’s something we can’t stop thinking about.
Wanda takes a dark route to abduct America Chavez in order to travel to the universe and see her boys. She also managed to catch her by duping Doctor Strange.
The movie, on the other hand, proves that the book corrupts everyone who reads it. As a result, while Strange was wandering through the streets at the end of the film, he collapsed. A third eye emerges on his forehead at that point. Fans are now interested in learning more about the evil eye.
What is the significance of Doctor Strange’s third eye?
Sinister Strange was originally seen with a third eye in the MCU, and this is the first time Strange has seen with this strange trait. This version of Dr. Strange uses the Darkhold to kill numerous alternative versions of himself. Furthermore, he was responsible for his universe’s Incursion, which murdered trillions of people.
So it’s clear that the Strange version was tampered with. Fans soon associated the additional eye with evil since he had a third eye. Fans worry if Dr. Strange from the MCU has turned evil now that he has a third eye like Strange from Earth 616.
Doctor Strange‘s third eye is claimed to be the manifestation of the Eye of Agamotto, who was a member of Vishanti in the comics. The eye is not a sign of evil; in fact, it is the polar opposite.
The Eye of Agamotto was built to hold the Time Stone, which we saw Doctor Strange use in the first film. ‘Infinity War’ destroyed it, but Strange brought back the Eye in ‘No Way Home‘.
The third eye has numerous abilities, including the capacity to detect hallucinations or disguises made by others. So it’s one of those abilities that Strange may find useful in the MCU’s imminent Skrull Invasion.
It also emits a mystical light and allows you to open gateways to alternate universes. When the eye emerges on a wicked person, it usually doesn’t perform properly, and only someone with a pure heart may use it.
Although the eye appears on Darkhold users in the film, this does not indicate that anybody can use its abilities. However, unlike Sinister Strange, Earth 616’s Stephen has a pure heart, thus we could see Strange employ it in future MCU endeavors.
