The sequel to the Marvel Supreme Sorcerer, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen, premieres in the United States on May 7, 2021.
Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that Kevin Feige announced during the San Diego Comic-Con opens a door of new possibilities to the franchise. In addition to discovering more about the world of black widows with Black Widow or seeing Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) as the goddess of thunder in Thor: Love and Thunder, the new stage of the studio will premiere her first horror movie: Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (May 7, 2021 in the United States).
It has already been announced that Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange / Doctor Strange and Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch will be the protagonists. Also that its director will be Scott Derrickson, who will repeat behind the cameras after doing so in the first installment.
Even that will connect directly with the series that Disney + will premiere in spring of 2021 WandaVision. But no sign of the villain. Only one unconfirmed possibility: Nightmare. And the medium HN Entertainment has proposed an actress for the role that has made fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe go crazy: Eva Green.
Derrickson did not confirm this data at Comic-Con, but in 2016 he acknowledged that he would like to explore this character in a sequel. "I really like the character of Nightmare and the concept that the Kingdom of Nightmare is a dimension."
In the comics, this character is a man, but ... when has he prevented something from Marvel Studios to change the genre of his characters? They already did it in Doctor Strange with The Elder (Tilda Swinton) and will do it in Eternals with Ajak (Salma Hayek), Makkari (Lauren Ridloff) and Sprite (Lia McHugh).
In Marvel comics, Nightmare is one of Doctor Strange's enemies and is the epitome of nightmares. He is also one of The Lords of Fear, a group of supernatural creatures that feed on the feeling that gives them their name.
Green has already given life to more than one villain on the big screen. Both supernatural and not. For example, Artemisia in 300 (The origin of an Empire), Angelique Bouchard in Dark Shadows, also as Vanessa Ives played, at the end of Penny Dreadfull, with the darkest side. The truth is that Green could be a great signing for this new stage of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
And more bearing in mind that only the idea of its possible signing has become a trend in social networks. The aforementioned medium has also proposed other names for the act in the franchise: Enchantress, Viper or Karnillia, the queen of the Norns - the Moira of Norse mythology. Would you like to see Green as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe?
