As you can see in the image below, Doctor Strange is fighting a giant one-eyed creature. This is Shuma-Gorath, who first appeared as Strange’s opponent in the early 1970s. Shuma-Gorath is revealed to be one of the Ancients, and once ruled the Earth. Here’s a more detailed description of Marvel’s Shuma-Gorath powers and abilities:

Shuma-Gorath is the archetypal Class Three demon, native to an extradimensional realm. He is one of the “Ancients” who came to Earth uncountable millions of years ago, ruling it and reveling in the ancestors of humanity. Though banished in the distant past by the sorcerer Sise-Neg, Shuma returned to Earth and ruled for a time in what would become Cimmeria, fueled by blood sacrifices. Over 21,000 years ago, the newly resurrected god Crom led a shaman to three iron-bound books of magic with which the shaman imprisoned Shuma on what became Mount Crom. Around 10,000 a. C., the newly married wizards, Kulan Gath and Vammatar, attempted to free and enslave the demon, but failed after betraying each other. A century later, Shuma-Gorath was unleashed by the two wizards and others, but the barbarian Conan used the Books to banish the demon from Earth.

Is Shuma-Gorath already in the MCU?

Needless to say, this entity will be a serious threat when it appears. It’s also worth noting that we may have already met Shuma-Gorath in the MCU. We saw a tentacled creature several times along What if …? on Disney Plus. But we still don’t know if it was the Old One.
