New Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness trailer lands online

A brand new trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has landed online, showcasing the source material for the movie’s LEGO set.

76205 Gargantos Showdown is (so far) the only LEGO Marvel set based on the Sam Raimi-directed sequel, which looks to lean into the wackier side of the comics – and may even open the door to a new band of superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

For now, the 264-piece LEGO set – which has been available since January – brings us familiar characters in the form of Doctor Strange and Wong, along with a brand new superhero in America Chavez. We spend time with all three of those characters in this latest trailer, along with their tentacled adversary Gargantos.

Judging by this footage alone, 76205 Gargantos Showdown looks to be pretty close to what we’re actually getting on-screen, which can’t be said of all LEGO Marvel sets. (Here’s looking at you, 76008 Iron Man vs. The Mandarin: Ultimate Showdown.)

But what of that new band of superheroes? Well, if you’ve watched the trailer above, you might already know what we’re referring to: at roughly a minute and 18 seconds into the clip, a very familiar voice announces: “We should tell him the truth.”

Unless we (and the rest of the internet) are mistaken, that’s the voice of Patrick Stewart, or the X-Men’s Charles Xavier. In case you’ve been living under a rock for the past few years, Disney acquired 20th Century Fox – the studio behind the X-Men movies – in 2019, and it looks like it’s going to use Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness to finally bring the mutants to the MCU.

That could subsequently open the door to more LEGO X-Men sets in future, although there are no more sets based on the Doctor Strange sequel rumoured to be in the pipeline. For now, 76205 Gargantos Showdown is available to order from LEGO.com.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
