Now that marketing for Doctor Strange 2 has ramped up, fans have gotten to see more details about the upcoming movie. In a recent featurette, Marvel showed Wanda in what appeared to be the Mirror Dimension as she fired a laser that ricochet back towards her. Some fans thought she was fighting a variant of herself or even a new villain, but upon further inspection, it’s clear that she is trying to escape:

No, more than fighting someone, #Wanda is really trying to escape from the “Mirror Dimension”. She fires a chaos magic spell, ricochets off walls and turns her head to dodge it.

Some fans point out that it must be Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Doctor Strange trapping Wanda in the Mirror Dimension even though it seems it’s easy for her to escape:

That’s strange trapping her in the mirror dimension she breaks free some time later but she fires a blast but it bounces and she dodged it she’s making progress cause it’s cracking

Looks like she’s trying to break free from whatever prison Dr. Strange has her in and her magic is backfiring

It seems to be a localized mirror dimension like the sorcerers created a pocket of the mirror dimension just around Wanda, what do y’all think ?

While other fans believe that Wanda is trying to break through the glass barriers of the Multiverse:

That’s definitely the place where the watcher lives (outside of the unvierses)

While it isn’t confirmed, it seems that Wanda is most likely in the Mirror Dimension. Even though fans are quick to assume Doctor Strange trapped Wanda, the real question would be which variant of Strange did it.

So far, Doctor Strange 2 will have at least five different variants of Strange — Doctor Strange, Defender Strange, Strange Supreme, Zombie Strange, and Supreme Strange. Most fans may believe that Strange Supreme (the evil Doctor Strange from Marvel’s What If…?) is responsible, it’s very likely that Doctor Strange is the one behind it.

Not many people can break out of the Mirror Dimension. So far, no other super hero has broken through, but Spider-Man was smart enough to break out of the Mirror Dimension using Math. Josh Brolin’s Thanos did use his Infinity Stones to break a Mirror Dimension barrier, but Wanda will be the first person in the MCU to use her raw power to break through the Mirror Dimension.

Many fans know that in the comics, Wanda becomes a villain and after WandaVision, Marvel seems to be leaning towards the Scarlet Witch no longer being an Avenger. It seems that Strange is trying to contain Wanda, but due to her immense power, even the Mirror Dimension won’t be able to hold her.

This isn’t the first time Wanda has shown off her abilities as she destroyed the Mind Stone in Avengers: Infinity War (2018) while fending off Thanos. Many fans expect the sequel will have the two heroes fight each other at one point and it seems that there’s a good chance that Wanda will win. Her powers seem to be too strong for the once Sorcerer Supreme, but fans will get to see soon if Wanda is indeed the stronger super hero.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness releases in theaters on May 6, 2022.
