Who is Defender Strange?
According to the aforementioned medium, the Defender Strange variant has its origin in the Marvel comics as part of the group known as Defenders. This team of heroes was created by Roy Thomas and Ross Andru in 1971 and had Doctor Strange teaming up with Namor and the Hulk.
They fought side by side against various threats and, despite not being an official team like the Avengers, they continued to work together when necessary.
Members of the Defenders evolved to include the Silver Surfer, Clea, Valkyrie, and more. Therefore, it is possible that his arrival at the MCU is not so difficult to explain, since we already have some of these roles in the movies.
On the other hand, it is not known exactly what the importance of Defender Strange would be for the plot of In the multiverse of madness or how it could influence future Marvel projects. However, it is possible that it will serve as inspiration for a new generation of Avengers.
