Released in theaters in May 2022, Doctor Strange 2 was a box office hit. However, some parents were indignant that the film was not suitable for young audiences, despite the fact that it is not recommended for children under 10 years old. Yet Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness could have gone even further, the proof with a new scene that was cut.

A very gory deleted scene for Doctor Strange 2

Like many other films, Doctor Strange 2 had to make concessions. In order to keep his -10 classification, and especially his PG-13 across the Atlantic, Sam Raimi and his teams were forced to review some of their plans. Originally, the sequel to the adventures of Steven Strange could have been more gory than what we have seen. A new cut action scene indeed shows us a completely different version of Wanda’s fight against the Kamar-Taja soldiers and it’s anything but family friendly.

This sequence produced by the stuntmen was accompanied by some special effects to give body to the whole, not forgetting the camera angles specific to Sam Raimi. We see a more frontal Wanda, who goes into the fray to decapitate and kill soldiers shamelessly, forcing them to kill each other before smashing their heads and dismembering them. It’s sure it’s not very PG-13 anymore, but the staging and the combat are very classy.

Special effects supervisor Erik Winquist has previously revealed that he also wanted to make Doctor Strange Zombie more gory and even include a scene where he throws his dismembered arm at Scarlet Witch to strangle her. Again, this didn’t make it into the final cut, as Disney wants MCU films to remain family-friendly.
