DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS Unused Poster Reveals Earth-616's Cut Version Of Mordo

DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS Unused Poster Reveals Earth-616's Cut Version Of Mordo DOCTOR STRANGE IN THE MULTIVERSE OF MADNESS Unused Poster Reveals Earth-616's Cut Version Of Mordo

Chiwetel Ejiofor was originally going to play two Mordo Variants in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and an unused poster for the MCU sequel reveals what the Earth-616 version looked like...

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness underwent quite a few changes during reshoots, including scrapping the sequel's original opening. 

In that, we'd have caught up with Doctor Strange's Mordo still on the hunt for those he believes are abusing the magics. Understandably, the Scarlet Witch was right at the top of his list, and we'd have seen the hero-turned-villain attempt to kill Wanda Maximoff with a crossbow. 

Mordo was going to find more than he bargained for, though, ultimately losing his head courtesy of the Witch. 

Marvel Studios instead decided to save Wanda's villainous reveal for later in the movie and left Earth-616's Mordo alive to fight another day. We'd later spend time with his Earth-838 Variant, learning he held just as much disdain for his reality's Sorcerer Supreme. 

An unused poster for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has now found its way online, offering a first look at the original Mordo. His appearance clearly wasn't going to be shaken up too much, but when he was cut from the sequel, he understandably vanished from posters like this one. 

It's interesting to see Rintrah as that's someone else whose role was heavily edited after shooting, taking him from a supporting character to a minor cameo. The design for Cthulhu's demon also appears slightly different. 

In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the Marvel Cinematic Universe unlocks the Multiverse and pushes its boundaries further than ever before. The movie sees Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies both old and new, traverse the mind-bending and dangerous alternate realities of the Multiverse to confront a mysterious new adversary.

What do you think about this unused poster for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness?

And there were people who actually believed Marvel Studios is gonna give Raimi more control than Sony did on Spider Man 3 which was laughable even back then and obviously never happened, Sony gave Raimi a lot more control and unlike Fiege didn't hack his movie in editing room.

@TCronson - I think Raining name was used to sell tickets, that's it. Victoria Alonso indicated that they directed a movie which had a big name director attached and I think this is that movie.

@TCronson - Wasn't Sony the one who forced Venom to be in Spider-Man 3?

@TheShellyMan - they are, but they just wanted to replace Vulture with more popular Venom, it's a major misconception that Sony forced 3 villains, 3 villains were always a thing before Venom.

Will that plot be brought back in the third film

Or will he join the ranks of The Leader, Armin Zola and other villains that had future plots hinted at, only for them to be swept under the rug after their first appearance

@dracula - Well at least the Leader has now been unswept from under the rug. And Zola was followed up on after his first appearance

What is this headline? I clicked thinking there was an unused poster with a comic accurate white Mordo, since that's what 616 means to me - comics, but I got the exact same bullshit as in the movie.

@URCOMMENTSUCKS - I think they're talking about the lame and contradictory use of the 616 designation for the MCU universe.

LORD willing, nothing particularly bull about it.

Pretty weird that the majority of MCU projects with Wanda involve her either killing/hurting, trying to kill/hurt or getting killed/hurt non white people. Age Of Ultron, Civil War, WandaVision and Multiverse Of Madness.

@Dingus - I don't think I even thought of it until I saw someone point out some instances and then I felt it compiled. Wanda killing Mordo in the original version of this movie would've been another.

I liked MoM.

But I think the MCU really screwed up and wasted a very good actor when they just dumped Mordo.

Bad Disney!

I like how they go out their way to make everyone a redhead except for Mary Jane Watson
