Easter Eggs are all over the MCU, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and they often come in the form of superheroes and characters. Every superhero, sidekick, and villain is somehow tied together with a backstory or future story.
What is an Easter Egg? According to Clued Upp, an Easter egg in movies is a hidden message, image, or feature that you love to spot and makes you go “ahhhh, clever!”. Before exploring the eggs, let's start with the main characters of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
America is the crux of the storyline: she is the only person in existence with the power to jump between universes. Of course, she’s young and can’t control her powers. The villain (spoiler alert going forward!) tries to extract her powers and is indifferent to killing her in the process. As central as America is to the story, she somehow didn’t get that much to do. Until the very end, she was always in need of saving, and she didn’t get much to say. This was such a poor utilization of America’s character, as she was super feisty and relatable! The movie was already exciting, but if America were given more focus, Doctor Strange could’ve been that much better!
: We finally get a Latina superhero, and her power is immigration??
The central protagonist, as the movie title goes. Smart and a bit conceited as usual, but Strange is a good person at heart. He is also a better person than all his alternate versions in the alternate multiverses. He is surprisingly self-deprecating and good-humored in this movie.
Wong is the Sorcerer Supreme at Kamar Taj (after Doctor Strange disappeared for 5 years due to Thanos), and Doctor Strange’s best buddy. Reliable and cool, Wong instinctively offers his life to protect the multiverse from Wanda’s destruction (yes, she is the villain!), but he refuses to sacrifice the lives of his friends.
Doctor Strange’s love interest with whom it never works out, regardless of which universe it is. They have a history, and they still care for each other, but Strange can’t get his stuff together to ever truly be there for her. Christine ends up saving him at one point.
