Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Review

By H.JanGra May 3, 2022

When you bring Sam Raimi into the Marvel Cinematic Universe you can bet you are going to get something different, 

And that is definitely the case with his pretty scary take on the latest MCU entry, Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness.

Though Raimi is well versed in the Marvel comic book world having directed the first Spider-Man trilogy he is just as well known for many other genres

Benedict Cumberbatch stars as Dr. Stephen Strange, a magician and sorcerer and superhero who can conjure up all sorts of colorful spells to save the day, just as he did in his first stand alone 2016 film

For this one he travels the multiverse, encountering different sides  – as it were -of key players including himself

Most notably though is the reunion with Wanda Maximoff aka Scarlet Witch played to the hilt by Elizabeth Olsen who steals this film lock, stock, and barrel

No shock there as she is coming off her own Disney+ take on the character in WandaVision which acts as a nice setup for what begins to transpire here

when Strange enlists Wanda to help him deal with a young girl named America  Chavez (Yochitl Gomez) who it turns out has the keen ability to traverse many multiverses but doesn’t know how to control her powers.
