Previously, Sam Raimi was best known for his work on the Evil Dead series, which is considered one of the most influential horror films of all time. This is why, with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, director David Fincher enters the Marvel Cinematic Universe and mixes superhero action and mind-numbing horror. A film that blends the thrill of superhero movies with the creepiness of horror films does just that, all while keeping an eye on the most important aspect of storytelling: ensuring that it is human at its core. In addition, here are some early reviews for Marvel’s Doctor Strange: The Animated Series: “Magical moments to remember forever,” say the critics.

Briefly put, the Multiverse of Madness picks up where Spider-Man: No Way Home left off, with Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) attempting to contain the effects of his multiverse-fracturing spell. There are also traces of three other Marvel web series, including WandaVision, What If…?, and Loki. Stephen Strange is still plagued by the consequences of what he did in No Way Home, when he opened Pandora’s Box. He must act quickly to prevent something (or someone) catastrophic from occuring before it is too late. America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez), a young woman with the capacity to move between realities, joins him on his quest.


The original Dr. Strange and WandaVision were both visually stunning. A big-budget project about sorcerers and witches must, of course, be visually stunning. Doctor Strange 2’s unique selling point is just that. This is one of the most visually stunning MCU flicks to date. Fans were concerned about ‘poor CGI’ in a recent trailer, but the film put their anxieties to rest.

But it’s not just action and CGI. At its core, The Multiverse of Madness revolves on a narrative about human emotions, and it does it with aplomb. ‘Am I happy?’ is the question that Strange is pondering. It’s either that, or Wanda wonders, “How far is too far to obtain what you want?” And in the United States, where shame and anxiety are weighing heavily on her shoulders. There are feelings that have been brought to light because of the text, not because of the CGI.

Nevertheless, the horror aspect of the picture serves as a unique selling point. No jump scares, but the tenor and the background music bring out the terror of being pursued by a “monster” in an effective way. Almost like in a monster movie, when the hero saves the kid from the villain’s clutches, it’s like the hero is being chased by a monster. Moreover, The Multiverse of Madness does a great job at it. There are moments in the play that cause gasps from the audience and make you fear for the safety of your protagonists.


The main cast’s performances are the icing on the cake. There is nothing strange about Benedict Cumberbatch’s portrayal of Strange, or any of the Stranges. In this film, the Oscar-nominated actor demonstrates why he is so admired. According to reports, he will be the focal point of the MCU moving ahead, and this film reflects that. As America Chavez, Xochitl Gomez is a welcome addition to the series, and she performs well in the company of some very talented performers. That honour goes to Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda/Scarlet Witch. Be prepared to be blown away when you witness what she can do in this sequel to WandaVision. Torment and menace are harmoniously blended in her demeanour and demeanour. You won’t be disappointed if you watch this film for her.

Doctor Strange 2 explores the idea of other realities and the multiverse, so it’s not surprising that a number of celebrities have been rumoured to appear in cameo roles, either as new characters or as familiar faces from prior films. They’d been hinted in the teaser, but some of them, including Patrick Stewart as Charles Xavier and Hayley Atwell as Capt. Carter, were still unknown. Criticism or criticism is impossible without mentioning some of its flaws. This is why we won’t be mentioning it in our review.

Overall, if Doctor Strange 2 is to set a new course for the MCU, it’s off to a good start. As a result, it gives us fresh personalities to cheer for and offers up a multitude of choices for our heroes and villains. It will be intriguing to watch how this film fits into the larger picture of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the years to come. Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe includes Doctor Strange: The Multiverse of Madness. Released on May 6, 2022 in theatres around the world, it stars Rachel McAdams and Benedict Wong, as well as Chiwetel Ejiofor.
