Doctor Strange 2 Runtime – Multiverse Of Madness Tickets On Sale Soon
If Spider-Man: No Way Home, or if Disney+’s Loki didn’t give viewers enough of the multiverse, tickets for all two hours and six minutes of Doctor Strange 2: Multiverse of Madness’ runtime go on sale April 6. On Saturday, Marvel released a new trailer to celebrate this auspicious news, as well as confirmation of the 126-minute runtime. One month after you grab those tickets, the film will be released. On May 6, Doctor Strange finally gets a own sequel to his 2016 debut. Doctor Strange 2: Multiverse of Madness stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, and Bruce Campbell. It also features the big screen debut of The Baby Sitters Club’s Xochitl Gomez. Most intriguingly, Patrick Stewart, also plays a part — presumably his role as Professor X in the formerly mostly separate X-Men universe.
The 28th movie in the Marvel saga gives us Doctor Stephen Strange, Scarlet Witch/Wanda Maximoff, Wong, and alternate versions of these characters. Doctor Strange himself is set to have two other versions, possibly villainous, in Strange Supreme and Defender Strange. Some rumors suggest that an alt Strange is the big bad, and not a new version of the more recently dark Scarlet Witch. (After all, she was almost a bad guy in WandaVision already).
What Is Wrong With the Multiverse in Doctor Strange 2?
We know a little more about the plot than Doctor Strange does about the multiverse —which as one trailer for Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness says, is “frighteningly little.” And since Doctor Strange 2 has a more than two-hour runtime, that means there are a lot of movie left to surprise us. After the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home and Loki, every universe is in peril. To counter this, Doctor Strange requests help from Wanda Maximoff and her magical powers. Presumably, part of the threat involves Xochitl Gomez’s America Chavez, a teenager who can break through the barriers between worlds.

In a world where trailers overshare, the big question now is just what international treasure Patrick Stewart is doing in Doctor Strange 2. The rights to Marvel characters are still somewhat divided between Disney and Fox. Scarlet Witch’s brother Quicksilver was the only character who managed to bridge the gap, as played by both Aaron Taylor-Johnson in Avengers: Age of Ultron (RIP) and Evan Peters in various X-Men and WandaVision. Subsequently, Peters’ interactions with Elizabeth Olsen in WandaVision became a hilarious metajoke. The nice thing about copyright disputes between Fox and Disney breaking down is that they will not endanger us all.
More Marvel Movies and Shows to Follow Multiverse of Madness
The 2022 Marvel list will not end at Doctor Strange 2: Multiverse of Madness on May 6. We also have Disney+’s Ms. Marvel TV show on June 8, and the fourth Thor movie, Thor: Love and Thunder on July 8. The fall will bring even more fun releases in Marvel’s fourth wave., including a new Black Panther Whether the walls of the multiverse continue to crumble may depend on Doctor Strange and Scarlett Witch’s success in Doctor Strange 2 (and how many tickets it sells). And maybe just what Professor X can do to help! (Or hurt. What if he’s evil alt Professor X?)
