In Doctor Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch first appeared in the role of the MCU magician in 2016. The blockbuster tells how surgeon Stephen Strange becomes a superhero. In addition to the typical Origin story, the film is often a colorful spectacle full of bright colors and weird parallel dimensions.
The Marvel blockbuster, which you can stream on subscription * at Disney, does not only use the various dimensions for gimmicks. The Doctor Strange multiverse is an important cornerstone shaping the entire future of the MCU.
Doctor Strange's multiverse is critical to the next level of MCU
In the Marvel movie, the elder explains to the superhero that there are parallel dimensions that all exist at the same time. This also makes it possible for our earth to exist in many different versions. Strange gets to feel the concept of the multiverse directly when he is thrown directly into it in a crazy scene.

One dimension of the multiverse, the quantum level from the Ant-Man universe, later even became the decisive component in order to be able to undo Thanos' devastating snip from Avengers 3 in the fourth part. The multiverse is not used for time travel in the MCU.
It will also serve to open doors for superheroes who are actually not part of this comic book universe. It has been known for a while that the multiverse is of great importance for the new phase 4 of the MCU, in order to further increase the number of characters and to bring superheroes from different universes together.
The sequel Spider-Man: No Way Home should offer a first impression of the multiverse madness. Doctor Strange will also appear in the blockbuster, which according to initial information may lead to guest appearances by Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield as Spider-Man. The upcoming sequel Doctor Strange 2: In the Multiverse of Madness has the multidimensional directly in the title.

The question of how the X-Men get into the MCU after the takeover of 20th Century Fox by Disney is also answered by the multiverse. What this can look like was recently shown by a wacky twist in the new MCU series WandaVision.
Doctor Strange has laid the foundation for the future of the MCU, in which superheroes from all possible dimensions are likely to overturn each other. It is one of the most important Marvel films ever.
