Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is about to hit another milestone this weekend.


Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is about to hit another milestone this weekend.

The Marvel Studios sequel will surpass DC Comics’ The Batman which starred Robert Pattinson as the titular character and was directed by Matt Reeves. 

The Batman ended its theatrical run with $752 million at the worldwide box office, and the Doctor Strange sequel will pass that long before it stops showing in theaters. Multiverse of Madness will officially pass that after this weeks numbers come in.

Michael Waldron, who wrote both Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Loki, recently revealed the big problem with Marvel Studios’ use of the multiverse. The scribe thinks we should proceed with the multiverse very cautiously.

During a previous discussion with SFX Magazine, the Loki and Doctor Strange writer scribe detailed how Marvel Studios use of the multiverse could become a double-edged sword.

“The danger is you can expand your scope too wide, and you can actually reduce the stakes if you don’t make it personal as you go bigger and wider.

But the opportunity in the multiverse is to have characters confront literal ‘What ifs?’ and alternate versions of themselves and perhaps others in their lives.

It’s an interesting way to hold up a mirror to characters,” Waldron said. “In every way, it shapes the emotional heart of the story. It has to. The multiverse isn’t just a MacGuffin where we’re like, ‘Okay, this is just a kitschy thing that we’re playing with in this movie.’

If you’re faced with alternate realities and with alternate versions of yourself that has to become the emotional heart, exploring who you might be if you were a different version of yourself, if you made other choices, the right choices or the wrong choices.

It’s complex stuff, emotionally, and that’s exactly why it’s so thrilling and so great for a cast as dramatically talented as this one.”
