Sam Raimi’s return to the superhero genre with the MCU's highly-anticipated Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently taking the spotlight as the month of May's biggest box office film.


While the upcoming film is generally receiving praises from both critics and fans from exclusive early screenings, some have expressed disappointment over the film's script, calling it 'too ambitious' and 'chaotic.'

The Doctor Strange sequel is getting praised for the stunning cinematography, the elevated action sequences, and Raimi's distinct touch on the horror elements that are not usually present in a Marvel film. Despite the film being alright, some fans seemingly find the script to be the only issue with the film.


Well, the reason might point out why the script is labeled 'chaotic' is due to the baffling multiversal storyline that Phase 4 currently centers on. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is also considered to be the official chapter one of the new Multiverse Saga, which aims to dive into a deeper understanding of the multiverse concept after being introduced by Disney+'s Loki and last year's Spider-Man: No Way Home.


If the Doctor Strange sequel doesn't settle every multiversal question Marvel fans expect to unravel throughout the film, it will be uncovered in the MCU's future projects related to the multiverse.

Luckily, Elizabeth Olsen's Scarlet Witch stands out as a winning element for the Sam Raimi picture. Marvel fans who already saw the film claim that Wanda carried the entire flick, calling her the 'MVP.'

Nevertheless, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to break box office records, even breaking last year's MCU box office milestone, Spider-Man: No Way Home. Alongside praises for both lead stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen, critics also hailed Xochitl Gomez's fun yet fearless, America Chavez. And of course, the primary focal point for critics is Sam Raimi who helmed the film, calling the director 'Brilliant' for making Marvel's scariest film of all time.

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will premiere in theaters on May 4.
