    Is it possible that dark matter could be the matter from the particles being in superposition, which could manifest through the many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics?

    Well, if you accept MWI, then you must accept all of MWI, which is that it reproduces all of the predictions of other interpretations of QM. Orthogonality of the many worlds means that they don't interact. So, as mathman has put it, "highly unlikely".
