Right now, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is destroying the box office. In overseas markets, the picture grossed a whopping $260 million. Not to mention the fact that the picture only trails three previous MCU films in terms of worldwide opening weekend gross. Behind Avengers: Endgame, Avengers: Infinity War, and Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange 2 now has the fourth biggest foreign opening. The film’s box office figures show that Marvel-produced films are still going strong.
Doctor Strange 2 may have been banned in some areas because the character America Chavez was identified as a member of the LGBT community, but that doesn’t matter because the picture is presently dominating the box office. According to Box Office Mojo, the film has grossed approximately $449 million worldwide thus far. Given that the picture has only been released for a week, that is horrific in nature. This might be the picture to match the box office success of the most current Spider-Man. That is all speculation and big ambitions, but the picture has nearly reached half a billion dollars in less than a week.
Benedict Cumberbatch reprises his role as Steven Strange in Doctor Strange 2. Strange is currently suffering from the consequences of being blipped and the Avengers’ victory over Thanos, their most terrifying nemesis. For this exciting sequel, Sam Raimi did not hold back on the horror themes.
Doctor Strange 2 is a box office success for a variety of reasons, most of which are likely related to Sam Raimi’s new aesthetic. While some may object to the aesthetic used in this latest MCU film, it is nonetheless fascinating that Marvel permitted such a crazy design to be used at all. They’re not strangers to taking chances. Spider-Man: No Way Home was a huge undertaking, but it paid off handsomely. Doctor Strange is yet another example of Marvel taking a chance and succeeding.
