The previous trailer for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness included Rachel McAdams’ character Christine Palmer in a critical sequence.
A new promotional video for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness includes a sequence from earlier trailers, but without cast member Rachel McAdams.
The scene in question originally had Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange peering through a multiversal portal, surrounded by Xochitl Gomez’s America Chavez and Rachel McAdams’ character Christine Palmer. However, as shown in the latest teaser, McAdams’ character has been digitally deleted. The character’s departure from the most recent position is unknown.
Dr. Christine Palmer was a colleague surgeon and Dr. Stephen Strange’s prior love interest, as seen in 2016’s Doctor Strange. Her position in the impending sequel, though, looks to be very different.
Palmer is shown working inside a prison facility beside an Ultron drone in the film’s first full-length trailer. The drone would suggest that the facility is located within the headquarters of the enigmatic Illuminati conspiracy, which appears to be holding Strange and Chavez hostage.
It’s also unknown whether this Palmer is the same as the one shown in Doctor Strange, or whether he’s a multiversal form of the character. Palmer’s digital withdrawal from the scene might signal her demise, which is more plausible if the character is a variation.
McAdams also performed the character’s voice. Palmer is killed in a car accident in the episode, and Strange tampers with the fabric of time by traveling back in time to absorb the energies of various magical beings to obtain the power to erase her death.
Corrupted by the magical forces now at his disposal, this evil “Strange Supreme” saves Palmer, but in doing so causes a temporal paradox that eventually destroys that world, save for a portion of it that Strange saves to survive.
It’s not the first time Marvel Studios has edited trailers digitally before a film’s premiere. To keep their roles under wraps before the film’s release, Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield’s Spider-Man characters were CGI-ed out of the trailer for Spider-Man: No Way Home.
However, it’s uncommon for the same scenario to be so drastically altered in numerous commercial segments.
Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness will hit theatres on May 6.
