Did you know that originally Donna Strangesister of the well-known magician Avenger, almost appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? This is how his actress, Lulu Wilson, who came to record scenes for the first Doctor Strange film directed by Scott Derrickson, has remembered it. Nevertheless, the post-production process ended with Donna’s sequences being removedso Stephen never got to meet his sister in the final footage.
In an interview with ComicBook, Wilson responded that I would be delighted to participate in a new Marvel movie, being able to resume her role as Donna after Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness. “Yes, of course! Who wouldn’t be? In that one, I was in the fifth grade and I was very, very young. It was only a couple of days on set and I’m not going to say what I did,” he explains in the middle.
However, the actress remembers that her character is not alive. “donna strange is dead, Doctor Strange says: ‘My sister is dead!’ So I died and I remember being a little bit angry because, come on, that would have been a good time and it would have been good for me.” the character was to appear alongside the iconic nemesis Nightmarealthough its deep history ended up eliminating it from the film.
Nightmare was too complicated for the MCU
The director of Doctor Strange himself explained that the problem with transferring Nightmare to the big screen was conveying the idea of the Dream Dimension as another dimension through a film that was already challenging enough with a lot of exposure, so they went for Dormammu. “We decided not to do that because it’s a bit of a complex idea, to present the idea of nightmares themselves as a dimension,” the filmmaker explained to Empire at the time. “I hope that at some point we can explore that because I think it’s a cool concept.”
while the possibility of seeing Nightmare in Doctor Strange 3 or in another Marvel series or movie it would be high, we don’t know what to see Donna Strange in the future. In the short term, yesterday the new trailer for Secret Invasion was released, which will be released in just one month on Disney +.
