The first wave of reactions to Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness have arrived, and it sounds like Marvel has another big hit on its hands.
When last we saw Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), he was helping to clean up a mess involving three Spider-Men and a weird talking Lizard. Now, it seems, the door to the multiverse is well and truly open - and audiences are going to learn just what that means for the MCU going forward.
Check out a trailer below!
Fresh from the world premiere event in Los Angeles, California, critics are sharing their first impressions of Multiverse Of Madness on social media. While full reviews are yet to come, these initial impressions paint a very promising picture indeed.
"By far the creepiest, gnarliest, zaniest, most haunting & terrifying Marvel movie, Multiverse Of Madness definitely brings the Sam Raimi horror vibes, and I loved that about it," writes Fandango's Erik Davis.
"Danny Elfman’s music is a perfect fit for the film’s odd, mysterious tone & Elizabeth Olsen is MVP, IMO. I most enjoyed how ambitious #DoctorStrange is. How it swings for the fences & how it’s lighter on humor & leans more into the evil of it all. That’s where Raimi really has some fun. Ultimately a film about being pulled toward darkness & the fight to keep it from engulfing us."
ComicBook's Jenna Anderson was also a big fan. "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness rules. It’s inventive, truly weird, and absolutely a joyride to watch," she wrote.
The Direct's own Liam Crowley was a little more hesitant to praise the movie, noting that it throws a lot at the wall. "Not perfect, but a worthwhile experience," he admits.
Elsewhere, The Direct's Matt Roembke called it "the most unbelievable Marvel movie ever made", which is high praise indeed.
"All gas, no breaks. With every scene more shocking than the last. Marvel Studios shows they are not afraid to push every limit imaginable," he wrote. "The Doctor Strange franchise is completely unleashed."
While we've yet to see Multiverse Of Madness ourselves, we recently sat down with its director Sam Raimi for a quick chat about his long-awaited return to superhero cinema. You can read up on that here, and look forward to Multiverse Of Madness hitting cinemas May 5.
