It’s never fun having any Marvel movie spoiled, especially when it’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. In less than ten days, every Marvel fan will be flocking to theaters to watch the triumphant return of Sam Raimi to the Marvel Universe, but one huge aspect of the movie has been spoiled and ruined for many.

From out of nowhere, Marvel reportedly uploaded a TV spot for Doctor Strange containing a shot of Captain Carter (Haley Atwell) fighting an aggravated Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen):

#MultiverseOfMadness is going to be INSANE!

Given that the advertisement above states “This Friday,” but at the time of publishing, the film still officially had eight days until its debut on Friday, May 6, it’s clear that Marvel accidentally dropped the ball.

While Captain Carter’s Shield was spotted in the first official poster for this Doctor Strange sequel, many fans are expressing their disappointment in actually seeing this character appear in the movie outside of a physical theater:

One fan shares:

Another fan writes:


Another fan passionately writes:

It was in the poster but i don’t understand why tf they wanted to show it, the movies out in 6 days


Going back to the days of Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021), Marvel is overflowing with groundbreaking cameos and jaw-dropping moments in Doctor Strange. Inevitably leaking one or two characters isn’t the end of the world, but still, an incredibly stressful task for fans to overcome, especially with the movie being so close to release.

The disappointment from Marvel fans is all over social media, but the sadness will soon be remedied upon watching the entire film next week.

Nonetheless, it’s safe to say that the internet will be a battlefield for Marvel fans over the coming week, with more spoilers and cameos undoubtedly being uploaded by eager viewers.
