Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness features characters like Doctor Strange, Wanda Maximoff, and America Chavez.

On May 6, 2022, Marvel is releasing a new action-packed movie, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, which is a sequel to the first Doctor Strange movie that came out in 2016. Since then, a lot has happened in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Phase 4 of the Marvel Movies is combining TV shows and movies into the timeline, making it more interesting and unique from what they’ve done before. 

Originally, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was supposed to come out closer to when Spiderman: No Way Home did. However, the release date was pushed back from November 5, 2021, to May 6, 2022, because of the actor’s inability to work through the coronavirus pandemic, which postponed the initial shooting process. They also had a reshooting to touch up some details, further postponing the already pushed-back release date. 

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is connected to Spiderman: No Way Home. After the end credits of the movie are over, there is a teaser for the new Doctor Strange movie. It features some familiar faces, including Wanda Maximoff from the Avengers and Wong the Sorcerer Supreme from Doctor Strange. Wanda is just coming out of Westview, a town that she controlled, to live out a life with her deceased husband, Vision. In the teaser, she is seen in a cabin in the middle of nowhere reading “The Book of the Damned,” which she stole from Agatha Harkness, a witch, at the end of WandaVision. Wanda hears the voices of her children, who disappear when she breaks the barriers of the Hex, letting all the people who were trapped inside out. People assume that Wanda is in the teaser because of how she found out she was Scarlet Witch in WandaVision. Later in the teaser, Doctor Strange is seen looking out of a door that leads to what people assume to be part of the multiverse. 

With the trailer and teaser releases, there has been some backlash that has come along with it. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness features new characters, and that is where the problem stems from. The new hero is America Chavez, played by actress Xochitl Gomez, from the Marvel comics. According to the Marvel comics, the hero America Chavez is homosexual. Because of the character’s sexual orientation, they aren’t showing this movie in Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries. Any movies that include gay characters or are about homosexuality aren’t allowed in those countries. Disney did not censor the movie of this to have it shown in those regions. 

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is soon to come out in the theaters, and Marvel fans are ecstatic.
