Dr. Strange’s most recent appearance was in Spider-Man: No Way Home, in which he assisted Tom Holland’s Peter Parker with some light tinkering with reality.

As Doctor Strange makes his way to the multiverse, readers may anticipate a joyride full of thriller and madness.
2. Appearance of Wanda
In this sequel, Doctor Strange returns to battle Karl Mordo, the one-eyed monster Shuma Gorath, and an alternate version of himself. ”The Multiverse Of Madness’ will feature Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) entering the fight after the conclusion of ‘WandaVision,’ and then later assuming full Scarlet Witch mode.
