Doctor Strange News

It is almost unavoidable for anyone who pays attention to movies even a little bit, but "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" is in theaters as of today. Perhaps not at all surprisingly, the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is expected to make a lot of money this weekend, and it's already off to an incredibly strong start. So much so that we're now looking at one of the biggest opening weekends of the pandemic era at the box office. As reported The Numbers, director Sam Raimi's "Doctor Strange" sequel took in $36 million in Thursday preview screenings.

Star Trek: Strange New Worlds Showrunner On Reinventing A Classic Villain And Letting Spock Be Sexy [Interview] "Star Trek: Strange New Worlds" is a breath of fresh air. The episodic, optimistic, and yes, even sexy new series is both a throwback to classic "Trek" and a bold swing at something different. It's the live-action "Star Trek" show fans have been waiting for, and also a perfect jumping-on point for new viewers wondering what the fuss is all about. It loves franchise history (The Easter eggs! The in-jokes!), but it stands on its own, ready to transform a legion of newbies into die-hard Trekkies.

"Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" scribe Michael Waldron is no stranger to magical chaos or alternate MCU timelines. Along with penning the latest adventure from Benedict Cumberbatch's sarcastic wizard — the one that hits theaters tonight (!) — Waldron also served as head writer for the debut season of "Loki," where the Asgardian prince accidentally had a hand in breaking reality and unleashing utter chaos.

One of the best characters in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe is Wong. This may sound like a weird thing to say, especially to long-time fans that know the character's comic book history, but it's true. With each appearance from "Doctor Strange" in early Phase Three to the recent hit "Spider-Man: No Way Home," Benedict Wong's Master of the Mystic Arts and current Sorcerer Supreme has carved out a very special place in our hearts as he kicks major ass, takes no guff from nobody (particularly Dr. Stephen Strange), and is one hell of a singer at the karaoke bar.

If you would have told me in 1994 that the little sister who randomly appeared in my straight-to-VHS Mary-Kate and Ashley movies would become the bigger Hollywood star, I wouldn't have believed you. Then again, I was also four and still wearing velcro shoes because "loop, swoop, and pull" was beyond my baby brain. Elizabeth Olsen made her "non-cameo in famous siblings' movie" debut in 2011 with the horror film "Silent House," which impressed audiences with its use of "real time" shooting.

Comic book movies generate billions of dollars at the box office, not to mention the amount of money they end up producing in terms of merchandising and other ancillary revenue after the fact. That might lead one to believe that the creators of the characters that go on to inspire these movies are wealthy.

"Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" will hit theaters on May 4, 2022, and today we have a new teaser trailer with a new line of dialogue and what appears to be a smidge more footage? I'm not going to say that I'm 100 percent sure; even though I've been watching every single thing about this film, it's all starting to blur. It also has a note about ticket sales, which will begin on April 6, 2022. You'll excuse me if I slow down on my articles that day, won't you?

Thanks to all the big game day trailers, it's starting to feel like Marvel is chucking out new movies and TV series left and right. The hype train for both "Moon Knight" and the forthcoming "Doctor Strange" sequel has very much left the station, partially because the projects promise a new crop of characters and world-shattering consequences for the entire MCU.

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to grow, fans keep their eyes peeled for certain heroes to make the leap from page to screen. Sometimes, these are fan-favorite characters like Spider-Man or Kate Bishop.

A new piece of promo artwork gives us our latest look at Benedict Cumberbatch’s next foray as Marvel hero Doctor Strange in the highly anticipated sequel Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Revealed by the Twitter account Marvel Studios Movies, the artwork shows The Sorcerer Supreme displaying those mystic arts he is so well-known for while wearing a similar yet slightly altered costume.
