What if they lied to us in Doctor Strange 2? What if the Marvel Multiverse isn’t exactly what we had imagined? What would happen then?
In an interview given during the Red carpet of Ms Marvelthe main star of the series, MagnetVellanitalked about Doc Strange 2. More specifically, on a certain aspect of the multiverse featured in this MCU Phase 4. As you know, in the sequel to the Sorcerer Supreme they say the land of the cinematic universe is the Earth-616. A wink or tribute to comics. However, for Iman Vellani this could be a lie. They would have lied to us with the nickname of our universe!
Shortly after waking up locked in a glass box, in Doc Strange 2 notify the character of benedict cumberbatch what is on the Earth-838. That is the land of illuminatiin which Wanda Maximoff he kills a bunch of superheroes. the actress of Ms Marvelhowever, believes that the Earth-616 nomenclature given to our world in the Multiverse could be a lie, a game of the very same Kevin Feig. “I wish it was Earth-616, like in the comics,” said Iman Vellani. “But I don’t think the MCU is Earth-616. As much as Kevin Feige would have us think that, maybe it’s Earth-199,999.” What does the young performer know that we don’t?
Earth-199,999 should be the one in the movies
Evidently, there is a lack of context in this short excerpt from Iman Vellani. But it is clear that the actress addresses how Doc Strange 2 tagged the Marvel Cinematic Universe like Earth-616. Vellani’s problem is that, for nearly a century, that designation has been that of the mainstream comics universe, while the Earth-199,999 is the number referring to the universe of the movies. Many fans hoped that the Multiverse would maintain the continuity of the comics, but the Sorcerer Supreme sequel proved that there were other plans. Unless… They have lied to us about this!
