Marvel just announced the comeback of Doctor Strange in his solo title at the Comic-Con on Saturday, called Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. And now, the Internet is speculating who will be the villain against the Avenger in this sequel. Back in 2016, Scott Derrickson, the director of the movie, shared that Nightmare was the villain that he wanted to feature in the sequel.

Nightmare could be the next villain of Doctor Strange

Nightmare is depicted as the first enemy that Dr. Strange fight against, making the very first appearance alongside Stephen Strange in Strange Tales #110 of Marvel Comics. This villain is the ruler of the Dream Dimension, where the demon tortures tormented humans during their sleep.

Nightmare can be a really interesting villain for Strange and Scarlet Witch

It's likely that after several years, director Scott Derrickson has changed his mind about having Nightmare in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Especially, Strange has battled some monstrous, fearful enemies, including supernatural creatures, demon gods and villainous deities. Besides, the first movie of Dr. Strange, the Ant-Man films and the last two films of the Avengers have had a lot of craziness going on with the time and space or upon different dimensions. It seems that Marvel is ready to go further into the darker corners of its universe.

Mysterio was a huge liar, but the multiverse does exist in MCU

Don't worry, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness won't be horror. The star of Doctor Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch shared his thoughts that "it's vital to maintain the humor of the first film, but with this twist of horror." At the Comic-Con, Marvel's Kevin Feige also said that the sequel would be PG-13

It has revealed that the film will star Elizabeth Olsen as Scarlet Witch, along with Cumberbatch coming back with his role as Dr. Strange. The fans are excited and look forward to the performance of the Sorcerer Supreme and the powerful witch of MCU. The film release on May 7, 2021.
