Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is finally coming this week and it looks like Marvel wants fans to be properly hyped up for the premiere. In an awesome move to promote the Marvel Cinematic Universe sequel for its Japanese premiere, three manga artists have dropped stunning art featuring their own version of the Sorcerer Supreme!
The illustrations were shared by the Marvel Studios Japan Twitter account. The artworks were created by Dr. Stone artist Boichi, Fairy Tail creator Hiro Mashima, and Space Brothers creator Chuya Koyama. Each illustration is truly unique and depicts Doctor Strange in a cool new way, and it's easy to distinguish which artist worked on each artwork. Check it out below.
We're loving the Doctor Strange illustrations and it's great to know that Marvel commissioned respected manga creators for the project. It's also fitting to see the Sorcerer Supreme in a new medium considering that the Multiverse of Madness might include universes that exist in anime and manga. Needless to say, these collaborations are amazing and we are truly looking forward to the MCU flick this Friday.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the second MCU film focusing on the Sorcerer Supreme and will take place a few months after the events in Spider-Man: No Way Home. In the sequel, Stephen Strange works with new and old allies as he travels into the multiverse and faces a mysterious new enemy. New leaks recently revealed interesting new details about the film and confirmed the arrival of new characters in the MCU.
The sequel will star Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Rachel McAdams. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will finally hit theaters on May 6, 2022.
