Disney released tickets precisely one month ahead of the movie’s scheduled release. While no figures have been revealed yet, there were reports on social media of ticketing sites crashing for various retailers, signaling high demand. Similar things happened when tickets for Spider-Man: No Way Home went on sale and that went on to have a record-shattering run at the box office. It seems the Sorcerer Supreme’s next adventure in the Marvel Cinematic Universe may prove to be a profitable one.
Here is the synopsis for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
“In Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the MCU unlocks the Multiverse and pushes its boundaries further than ever before. Journey into the unknown with Doctor Strange, who, with the help of mystical allies both old and new, traverses the mind-bending and dangerous alternate realities of the Multiverse to confront a mysterious new adversary.”
The original Doctor Strange was released way back in 2016. This marks the longest gap in the history of the MCU between solo entires of a franchise. While some of that can be chalked up to the pandemic, much of it had to do with Marvel’s larger plans. Strange played a big part in both Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, as well as Far From Home. Those had to be handled before we could get to the sequel. Scott Derrickson directed the original but did not return for the sequel. He was originally supposed to but departed the project over creative differences. He remains on board as a producer.
stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, with Michael Stühlbarg, and Rachel McAdams. The film is directed by Sam Raimi, and Kevin Feige is the producer. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Eric Hauserman Carroll and Jamie Christopher serve as executive producers. The screenplay was written by Michael Waldron.
