It is no question that Spider-Man: No Way Home is the biggest movie of the year as it perfectly sets the stage for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in so many ways. Its post-credits scene poses a question of whether Venom will be coming into the franchise and the other one being a sneak peek for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and it confirms the long-awaited return of Baron Mordo.
Spider-Man: No Way Home End Credits Scene Confirms Return of Baron Mordo
Baron Mordo debuted in Doctor Strange where he was one of the lieutenants of the Ancient One and he trained Stephen Strange to become a sorcerer, to use magic, and to face Kaecilius and his cronies. However, when he found out about Ancient One’s powers being drawn from the Dark Dimension, he felt betrayed that he chose to walk away from the life he knew.
There, he started hunting other sorcerers across the world and stole their powers because he believes that there can’t be too many. He thinks that there are so many powered people who don’t deserve what they have.
Chiwetel Ejiofor is already confirmed to return in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse and it puts the question on whether he would remain with his vision of eliminating sorcerers or come back to being an ally to Strange now that the multiverse has opened. Mordo has been missing in the scene since then. Finally, we see him again after years of being in the dark.
The end-credits scene of Spider-Man: No Way Home takes the lines of Strange of the tampering of the stability of space-time and how scary the multiverse is. Someone on the other end tells Strange that there is a punishment for the “desecration of reality,” then Strange responds that, “it’s the only way,” and that he didn’t mean anything that happened.
Strange gets face-to-face with Mordo and he even said sorry to Strange, possibly pertaining on the dilemma that Strange will be facing after the events of Spider-Man: Now Way Home. A voice says, “I hope you understand,” pertaining to Strange, that “the greatest threat of our universe is you.” Then a variant of Strange is the one who responds that “things just got out of hand.”
Whether the film will expound on the past of Mordo remains in question. Mordo has been in the shadows for so long that we haven’t seen him since the post-credits scene in Doctor Strange. On whether he’ll be an ally is another one waiting to be answered in the film.
Do you think Mordo will become Strange’s ally again?
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is scheduled for release on May 6, 2022. Spider-Man: No Way Home is now out in theaters.
