The Writer of ‘Doctor Strange 2′ Addresses Loki and other Character’s Connections to the Film

It’s remarkable that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness isn’t overstuffed, despite the fact that it includes numerous alternative realities, many variant title heroes, previous and future Marvel Cinematic Universe characters, cameos galore, and plenty of inter-dimensional action sequences.
Yes, the plot is packed with a lot to catch your attention, but it never really rests, adding to the feeling of continual motion that keeps things from getting bogged down. Fortunately, screenwriter Michael Waldron avoided employing Kang the Conqueror in his script, who was already established as the newest Thanos-level threat in Loki.
Speaking to Deadline, Waldron said we “felt like we had the biggest best bullet in Wanda,” so Jonathan Majors’ big bad was never considered for villainous duties, which he worked closely on with director Sam Raimi.
“When working with Sam, I said we should really make the decision to make Wanda the antagonist in this film, we can’t let another movie have that fun. If you introduced Kang…you would have risked the movie getting overstuffed.”
Unless he or one of his many variations appears before then, Kang will return in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania next year to cause more multiversal mayhem unless he is stopped first, but now that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is out there for everyone to see, it’s difficult to imagine where he would have fit in.
