A now-deleted product description for a Doctor Strange tie-up shirt in the Multiverse of Madness teases the arrival of a multiversal Avengers team.
WARNING: The following article contains potential spoilers for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madnessin theaters May 6.
An official merchandise tied to director Sam Raimi’s upcoming Marvel Studios movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness seems to suggest that a multiversal version of the avengers will factor into the story to some degree.
Recently an Amazon listing went live for the Marvel Doctor Strange Multiverse of Madness Avengers Logo Premium T-Shirt. There isn’t too much stuff on the shirt, just a silver and red Avengers logo. Although the design vaguely resembles strange doctor-esque, it’s honestly more reminiscent of the 2015 Marvel Cinematic Universe movie Avengers: Age of Ultron.
What makes it interesting is the fact that initially the shirt was specifically marked as being a Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness product. Additionally, the original product description read: “Discover Doctor Strange in an all-new mind-bending adventure with Marvel Studios.” Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. This Avengers t-shirt features the Avengers logo for Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Who Could Be From A Whole New Multiverse. Available in youth and adult sizes. Get it in a t-shirt, premium t-shirt, tank top, v-neck, long sleeve t-shirt, and sweatshirt.”
However, the list has since been updated. The t-shirt itself is now simply called “Marvel Avengers Silver and Red Logo Premium T-Shirt”, with the description updated to read “Avengers Assemble! This silver and red Avengers t-shirt features the Avengers’ A logo. ‘ worn by Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. . Available in youth and adult sizes. Get it in a t-shirt, premium t-shirt, tank top, v-neck, pullover t-shirt. long sleeves and a sweatshirt. That said, the listing URL still refers Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. It is not clear if the original version of the list was a real mistake, or if legitimate information on the strange doctor the sequel was released too soon.
After all, while some tie-in products have offered details of upcoming movies in advance, it’s not all on a t-shirt or in a toy set. It’s worth mentioning, though, that Marvel Studios’ Disney+ animated series What if…? recently introduced a multiversal “Avengers” team in the form of the Guardians of the Multiverse. This is particularly interesting, given how Multiverse of Madness‘ first trailer features the live-action debut of what appears to be Strange Supreme, Doctor Strange’s evil variant of What if…?. That being said, if Multiverse of Madness indeed features its own Avengers team, we don’t know if it will really be the Guardians of the Multiverse, or something else entirely.
Either way, it sure would be weird for a shirt with the Avengers logo to be branded as a strange doctor produced if Earth’s Mightiest Heroes disregarded the sequel in some way. There is an official Loki shirt with its own spin on the Avengers logo, but even Loki Season 1 featured Avengers cameos via recap images from Avengers: Endgame. Nonetheless, with the multiverse open and all bets off, it looks like Doctor Strange will have his hands full on his next solo outing.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness released in theaters on May 6.
