Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ended up being more of a Multiversal taster session than anything else, and while those huge cameos left fans with plenty to discuss, high expectations led to some fans being disappointed.
We know some seismic changes were made to the sequel along the way, including a cut opening sequence that saw Baron Mordo confront the Scarlet Witch. That was going to result in the Doctor Strange hero-turned-villain being beheaded by Wanda Maximoff in a scene that, while gory, sounds like a waste of a character with real potential.
We didn't end up seeing the MCU's Mordo again, though his "Master Mordo" Variant did appear. Now, some newly released concept art shows what the version we know would have looked like after losing his head courtesy of the Scarlet Witch.
It's a gory image, but one that pales in comparison to a piece of artwork showing a dead Wong. We're not sure when and where this was going to fit into the story, but it seems Wanda was going to slice his noggin right in half, leaving his brains leaking all over the floor.
There would have been no redemption for the former Avenger after that, though we suppose it's possible this was the Wong from Defender Strange's Earth.
Both Mordo and Wong are likely to be a big part of Doctor Strange 3 and while it doesn't have a release date, rumours persist that the plan is for the threequel to arrive in theaters before Avengers: Secret Wars. The clock is ticking in that case, so fingers crossed we get some news soon.
Take a look at the concept art below and let us know your thoughts on these possible deaths of the two sorcerers in the comments section.
