Being an inch away from Sam Raimi's triumphant return to his superhero roots with the highly-anticipated Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, the upcoming film is unluckily receiving leaks that spoil major characters and awaited surprises from the film. Fortunately, Marvel Studios takes action by making a historic move to prevent leaks and spoilers by disabling their social media account's comment section.

Marvel Studios is no stranger to disappointing leaks, mentioning how spoilers from last year's Spider-Man: No Way Home also swirled online prior to the film's theatrical release, spoiling Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield's widely rumored inclusion. Now that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the MCU's biggest film to date, the "big surprises" prepared by Marvel are being leaked.

In response to this disappointing incident, Marvel Studios posted a statement on their official Twitter account regarding their action on the said issue, marking a historic move to prevent spoilers. Marvel Studios tweet is below:

And if you check the account's bio, "Find out in a theater. Not online. Replies disabled. Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness in theaters Friday. Get Tickets Now"

Let's admit it, the leaks are devastating for the fans, but the studio together with the production team certainly suffers more. This new tactic should help the endeavors of the Doctor Strange sequel, even though the leaks are now posted on several platforms online. Despite that, it's good to see Marvel doing their best in handling the surprises meant to be seen on the big screens. Aside from that, whoever wants to be spoiled with details from such a long-awaited film?

For now, the only confirmed characters appearing in the film are Patrick Stewart's Professor X, Lashana Lynch as a Captain Marvel variant, and Hayley Atwell's Captain Carter.

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