Breaking along the ‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ theory 

If you have got seen Avengers: Endgame (just non-fans have actually however to begin to see the epic conclusion into the grand tale), you are already aware that the “Time Heist” showcased in Avengers: Endgame led into the development of a few brand-new realities, as each visit to an innovative new destination — whether it’s S.H.I.E.L.D headquarters or Morag — caused another split, as ComicBook.com explained. Theoretically, these branches may be the “multiverse” Strange must travel through. The theory argues:

…Endgame produced at the least five individual timelines as an immediate result of activities taking place into the movie, meaning the multiverse has already been produced and awaiting chaos to unfold

Using this concept, that will mean Doctor Strange into the Multiverse of Madness wouldn’t be about a visit between proportions or worlds — instead, it’d be in regards to the Sorcerer Supreme traveling amongst timelines in hopes of ironing out of the kinks therefore the multiple timelines don’t somehow are able to fold in on on their own.

If we should get more technical, Strange himself had formerly seen the way the Avengers win, meaning it is all but guaranteed in full he saw they journeyed through time and produced half dozen brand-new timelines in the act.
