A new stunt video reveals an incredibly violent scene that was ultimately cut from Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness.
Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness was a film that shocked audiences with how violent it was. Throughout the film, the movie’s main antagonist, Scarlet Witch managed to rack up a pretty high body count. The most memorable of these was when she took on the Illumanit singlehandedly, killing all of its members. At one point, however, there was an even more violent fight at Kamar-Taj.
At the start of Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness, Scarlet Witch attacks Kamar-Taj and defeats all of its sorcerers singlehandedly. At one point, however, this battle had an even more graphic sequence involved. In a recent post, fight coordinator Liang Yang revealed a rehearsal for a fight between Scarlet Witch and the sorcerers of Kamar-Taj. In the fight, the stunt doubles fight one another, and the film’s antagonist dispatches them in very violent manners that would have likely pushed the film into a hard R rating.
