Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness might be surrounded by the most rumors of any Marvel Studios project so far. With how Spider-Man: No Way Home offered the return of many iconic characters from the franchise’s past, it seemed löike everything is possible for the multiverse traveling film heading to theaters in May. Now, it looks like a leaked LEGO set named “The Sanctum Sanctorum” may be adding some fuel to the fire on who might appear in the upcoming film.
If this rumor turns out to be true, it may spoil the experience for those wanting to enter the film blind. So, only continue at your own risk.
The 2,708-piece model will include the usual sets of Minifigures from characters inspired by the upcoming movie. The last one featuring Gargantos included Strange, Wong, and the new MCU addition of America Chavez. Yet, it seems this new large set will include two rather interesting Minifigure additions. As the listing includes Iron Man and Spider-Man in the Sanctum Sanctorum fighting alongside three versions of Strange, Baron Mordo, and Wanda Maximoff. Now, these sets are never a one-to-one representation of what happens in the film, their inclusion is still quite noteworthy.
Let’s start off with Iron Man. There’s been a lot of theories going around the upcoming film may including a Variant inspired by the Superior Iron-Man, especially with how the returning Ultron Sentry seems to have a design similar to his from the comics. Not only that, there have been rumors that it may not be Robert Downey Jr. but Tom Cruise in the role, as he was in the running for the 2008 film. The former has technically left the franchise behind after Tony Stark’s death in Avengers: Endgame.
The big addition is that Spider-Man is included in the set, especially with there being rumors that No Way Home would open up the possibility of one of the Variants to make a return in a future entry. There’s no confirmation who it might end up being, but given that Strange no longer knows who Peter Parker is, it’ll be interesting to see him interact with the character again. Of course, it being a Sam Raimi film, it would seem fitting if Tobey Maguire returns once again in the role as a nice reunion. We’ll see once photos of the set find their way online if they tease which designs the LEGO set takes inspiration from to further add to these rumors.
