Kevin Feige and his team dropped the first trailer for Doctor Strange In the Multiverse of Madness as a Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) post credits scene, delighting Marvel Cinematic Universe fans.
The film will take place after the events of WandaVision, Loki, No Way Home, and numerous other recent MCU projects. This means that the Marvel Multiverse has been blown wide open, leading to the possibility of numerous cameos including, perhaps, the MCU debut of X-Men characters like Wolverine (Hugh Jackman).
True to form, however, Marvel boss Kevin Feige and his team have been tightlipped regarding the exact plot of the movie. But, as it turns out, the project has already made Marvel Studios movie history before it even hits theaters.
A new poster for Doctor Strange 2 reads “A Kevin Feige Production.” As one recent article noted:
This is the first time any Marvel Studios film has been officially promoted as such, a true sign of how much prestige Kevin Feige has at Disney and within Hollywood today.
However, this isn’t the first project of 2022 to make this distinction, as the Moon Knight credits sequence also lists the show as “A Kevin Feige production” before its own title card on Disney+.
The Walt Disney Company is clearly giving Feige his just due after nearly 15 years of the MCU, which began in 2003 with Robert Downey, Jr.’s Iron Man. The Marvel Cinematic Universe now includes 27 movies, six Disney+ Original series, and a host of projects that are currently in production.
