The release date for Doctor Strange 2 on Disney+ has been announced. The latest MCU film will finally be available for rent or purchase after a rather brief theater exclusivity window (by Marvel movie standards).
There is no rest for the weary in the Multiverse of Madness, which the titular sorcerer discovers. He just saved the planet in Avengers: Endgame and the multiverse in Spider-Man: No Way Home, and now he’s got to cope with a universe-hopping dilemma.
DOCTOR STRANGE 2 CHEAT SHEET
- Release date and time: Originally released on May 6, 2022, Doctor Strange 2 is now streaming on Disney Plus, having arrived at 3 a.m. ET on Wednesday, June 22.
- Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Rachel McAdams
- Rating: PG-13
- Running time: 2:06
Beneath the surface, there’s a real Sorcerer Supreme named Wong (Benedict Wong). America Chavez, a newfound hero, lends a hand to the duo (Xochitl Gomez). To make matters even more confusing, Strange is having trouble sorting out his feelings for Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams).
Just another day at work for the author. With America Chavez’s introduction, we’re left wondering if she’ll have a bigger role in the forthcoming Marvel films. However, despite the Loki series and the next Quantumania, we still don’t know how all of this will play out in the multiverse. It’s a good thing that Thor: Love and Thunder has the potential to put a stop to all references to “multiverse.”
In order to view Doctor Strange 2 on Disney Plus, here are the details you need.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness cast
However, their appearances may surprise you. The core cast is straightforward. Chiwetel Ejiofor reprises his role as Karl Mordo. Benedict Cumberbatch plays Doctor Stephen Strange. Rachel McAdams plays Christine Palmer, and Benedict Wong plays Wong.
Since that Super Bowl commercial broke our heads when Patrick Stewart’s voice was heard, we’ve got another new Doctor Strange 2 TV promo to look forward to.
At some point in the latter half of 2020, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige hinted that the upcoming film Doctor Strange might have some connection to two other Marvel projects. In the teaser trailer for WandaVision, Elizabeth Olsen (as Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch) can be seen reprising her role.
Xochitl Gomez has joined the cast as America Chavez, a popular teen hero from the Marvel Comics series.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness trailers
As shown in the latest Doctor Strange 2 trailer, Stephen Strange and Wanda Maximoff are both plagued by disturbing nightmares.
The full Dr. Strange 2 trailer was released in January, as we reported in our live blog of the Super Bowl advertisements. I hear Patrick Stewart’s voice, Wanda Maximoff’s spiteful screams, Stephen Strange’s agitation (who may have been arrested), and more.
Several individuals have asked if it was Prof. X who made the appearance.
After the credits of Spider-Man: No Way Home, Marvel released a teaser trailer for Doctor Strange 2. When a spell to make everyone forget that Peter Parker is Spider-Man goes astray, Strange releases the multiverse.
Stephen turns to an old acquaintance, Wanda Maximoff, to help him mend what he’s broken.
