The Plot of Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness is as follows:
One of the most difficult things for staunch Wanda fans to comprehend is that the Scarlet Witch is the story’s main villain. Wanda isn’t here to assist Doctor Strange with his universe quandary. She’s here to wreak havoc on the MCU.
Wanda’s travels and the reason she’s the villain are described in the Doctor Strange 2 plot leak. She believes her children are in danger and is willing to go to any length to save them.
Doctor Strange and Wong, on the other hand, will do everything in their power to stop Wanda and provide America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) a safe haven. Early in the film, she’ll be taken to the main MCU universe, in a scenario that Marvel teased at CinemaCon just a few days ago.
That scene description can also be found in the storyline leak for Multiverse of Madness.
America Chavez offers a fresh version of a power that we’ve seen before in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in numerous ways. Wanda is after her because she has the ability to open portals between realities. The Scarlet Witch wants to take that power so she can use it to transport herself to the reality where her children are in peril.
Wanda can only travel by astral projection without America. As a result, she winds herself at the Illuminati’s headquarters. Wanda gets into a brawl while wearing a sweater and pants in that scenario.

Review of Doctor Strange Multiverse of Madness
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (which opens tonight in the US as a theatrical exclusive) proves that a superb picture can work even when twisted around a clichéd plot. Despite its predictability, it is a great example of Marvel Studios letting filmmakers be themselves—and demonstrates how brilliant, visually compelling filmmaking can transcend “formulaic” plot elements into a captivating journey for numerous people. (Plus, after so much alternate-universe wackiness in previous Spider-Man flicks, this one pleasantly surprises with new applications of the concept.)
