There are a lot of interesting details to take away from the new trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. I might even be running out of ideas on how to start these articles, but there is one more really interesting detail that might have bigger implications moving forward for the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Besides the biggest reveal in the trailer, there’s a small moment that actually may have hinted at an iconic location from the comics that finally finds its way into live-action.
In a blink-or-you-miss-it moment, Strange is seen floating alongside America Chavez from one portal to another. What stands out is that a tyrannosaurus rex is standing in the background ready to let out a powerful stream. No, it’s not a crossover with Jurassic World: Dominion but rather the first introduction of the continent known as the Savage Land. In the comics, it’s set in Antarctica and is a prehistoric land that has remained hidden through volcanoes surrounding it.
We don’t get a confirmation that this is definitely the Savage Land, but as the story is about dimension-hopping and not time travel, the MCU could introduce this land as part of its own pocket dimension similar to what we saw in Shang-Chi and the Legend of Tomorrow‘s Tao Lo. Chavez might be the reason they are being catapulted from one dimension to another, but it’s a great little addition in case the land makes a return in a future project. There’s still the chance it may simply be a dimension where dinosaurs continue to thrive but one can dream.
