Doctor Strange’s iconic nemesis revealed in a new deleted scene from Multiverse of Madness

Nightmare is the oldest villain in Doctor Strange’s rogues gallery. In fact, the villain and Sorcerer Supreme made their comic debut in the exact same issue, the former being the first threat Strange ever faced. That’s why it’s surprising that in two movies that cross the multiverse, the character hasn’t been introduced in live action or at least even mentioned. At one point, Scott Derrickson was expected to bring in the character Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madnessalthough those plans never materialized after Sam Raimi took over the film.

Still, Nightmare was on the project long enough to be incorporated into concept art and keyframes produced by Marvel Studios’ visual development department. Weta Digital’s new concept art Aaron Black depicts a mysterious figure on a horse cutting through the multiverse in various ways. Longtime Strange fans will notice that as Nightmare and his horse Dreamstalker.

Would Nightmare really be in it? Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness?

Nightmare has been a Derrickson favorite since the beginning of the franchise. He was even included in early drafts of the first Doctor Strange film before finally being removed by studio executives.

Kevin [Feige] made a very compelling case,” the director told Empire. “The problem with starting Nightmare is trying to convey the idea of ​​the Dream Dimension as another dimension. The movie was challenging enough. It’s already a movie with a lot of exposition… Dormammu made the most sense. And he’s the most present villain in the comics.”

“We decided not to do that because it’s kind of a complicated idea to try and introduce everything we do and introduce the idea of ​​nightmares themselves as a dimension,” the filmmaker explained in a separate interview. “I hope we explore that sometime in the future, because I think that’s a super cool concept.”

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Insanity is now streaming on Disney+ and available for purchase on physical home media, where movies are also sold. What did you think of the sequel?
