Doctor Strange 2
Revealed A
Terrifying Truth
About Dreams
In The MCU

THIS STORY CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR...

"Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness."

SPOILER WARNING!

Some of the creepiest moments in "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness,” come when powerful magic users deploy a technique called dreamwalking to possess their alternate universe counterparts. The film almost casually reveals the truth about the nature of dreams in the MCU, which is nothing short of terrifying.
The movie also gives an example of a common bad dream and how it might play out in the MCU multiverse when the Doctor (Benedict Cumberbatch) encounters a variant of himself who kills alternate-universe Stranges. The variant reveals that most dreams of falling that the main Strange had were likely caused by the Darkhold Strange killing other Strange variants in ways that, presumably, involve great heights.
The viewer can't help but think that every bad dream a character has ever had in the MCU is just a vision of their variant having a bad time. This, by proxy, implies that the MCU is an even wilder place than you've seen so far.
Every time the heroes and villains go to sleep and dream, they conjure up wild and awful adventures of their multiversal variants. With this film, the MCU may have opened the door to stories that are so weird that they make even "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" look like a walk in the park.
