When Will Doctor Strange 2 Come Out on Digital Platforms
Doctor Strange 2 comes out today! The beloved sorcerer makes yet another appearance, and it’s not a cameo this time. After being shown his exploits in Doctor Strange, Infinity War, Endgame, and No Way Home, fans were hungry for more. The prayers of these fans are clearly being heard as Doctor Strange 2 has been released with a wonderful cast.
Marvel has a habit of bringing its most ignored heroes to the forefront suddenly. They did the same with Doctor Stephen Strange when no one was even expecting it. We all thought that Marvel was too busy pushing its other superheroes like Iron Man and Captain America. In 2016, MCU decided to shake things up and since then, Doctor Strange has become a household name. The result? The upcoming Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is one of the most awaited films of 2022.
If you haven’t been living under a rock then you must know that Dr. Strange is all set to make another Hollywood appearance on 02 May 2022. Knowing all about the hype, you must be wondering when Doctor Strange 2 comes out on digital platforms. Don’t get us wrong! The theatrical releases are great and you’ll have a blast watching the movie in theatres. However, nothing beats the comfort of your home. The biggest reason to watch any movie at home is that you can watch it multiple times at your own pace. So, if you’ve been waiting for Doctor Strange 2 to come out on digital platforms, read on because we have some good news for you.
What Is Multiverse of Madness All About?
In this second iteration, we get to see the MCU push the boundaries of the multiverse further. Marvel has time and time again used the multiverse to justify the tangential storylines that would otherwise make no sense. With new allies and deadlier foes than before, the Sorcerer Supreme has to rise to the challenge and save the universe.
The challenge isn’t small either, just like all the adversaries that Strange has faced before. If you loved Elizabeth Olsen’s portrayal of the Scarlet Witch in the Avengers movies and WandaVision, you’re in for a treat. Wanda Maximoff makes multiple appearances and forms an important part of the story. This movie is all about expanding the horizons of sorcery, cosmic witchcraft, and multiversal theories in the MCU.
Directed by Sam Raimi- the man behind the original and most beloved Spiderman franchise, the trailers, teasers, and cast for Doctor Strange 2 are very promising. Benedict Cumberbatch gave an equally impressive performance the last time around, with part one bagging a rating of 89% on Rotten Tomatoes. The supporting cast in Doctor Strange 2 is equally impressive with the likes of Elizabeth Olsen, Rachel McAdams, and Patrick Stewart who’ve impressed Marvel fans worldwide.
Platforms on Which Doctor Strange 2 Will Come Out
We know that you want to watch Doctor Strange 2 very soon, because, the trailers are very promising and so is the movie’s performance at the box office.
We know for a fact that Multiverse of Madness will eventually make its way to the various digital platforms. These platforms are too important to be ignored and any studio seeking to make profits will have to consider them. The problem, however, is that it’s very difficult to speculate on the release date. The vast number of OTT platforms out there doesn’t help either.
What we do know is that it’ll be released on popular platforms like Amazon Prime Video, iTunes, Disney Plus Google Play Movies & TV, and more. If you’re not a big fan of OTT and prefer your movies on Blu-ray/DVD then you’ll have your chance as well. However, be ready to wait for a while because it usually takes some time.
How Would One Predict the Release Dates?
Remember that we said it’s difficult to guess the exact dates? Difficult, not impossible. For movie geeks like us, predicting a tentative release date is no biggie because this is what we live for! Even though there aren’t any official rumors regarding the dates, we do have past data.
If we look at the time gap between the release dates of Shang-Chi and The Legend of The Ten Rings, we can get some clues. Shang Chi made his theatrical debut on 02 Sep 2021 and was available on all the major digital platforms by 12 Nov 2021. The Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, and DVD versions made it to the public by 30 Nov 2021.
In another example, Eternals made a disappointing debut in the theatres on 05 Nov 2021. By 12 Jan 2022, Eternals was released on the OTT platforms and the people sitting in their homes were also given a taste of the disappointment. Finally, the Eternals movie made it to Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, and DVD versions by 15 Feb 2022 and disappointed the few remaining fans. We hope that Stephen Strange doesn’t give us the bland and emotionless performance that the Eternals painfully did!
So When Is Doctor Strange 2 Coming Out?
Now, the part that you’ve been eagerly waiting for – the tentative release dates of Doctor Strange 2. Shang Chi and Eternals were released not so long ago and both these movies followed a similar track record. So, we can safely assume that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will do so too.
We’re talking about the track record of release dates on different platforms, mind you! No one would want this movie to be as engaging as the last two (because those weren’t).
The master of the mystic arts will most probably arrive on digital platforms by mid-July. How? The last two movies were available on OTT approximately after a gap of 70 days. If we were to make an educated guess then 15 July 2022 should be the day when you can see the movie in your home.
As for the Blu-ray, 4K Ultra HD, and DVD releases, it might take a wee bit longer. Our best guess would be somewhere between August and September. This is definitely a long wait for someone who has been eager to watch the movie. We know that we are, and we’re going to watch it at least once in theatres before we watch it a hundred times on digital platforms. So, the choice is yours! Either you can wait for the digital releases or you can go witness the breathtaking visuals of the multiverse on full-size screens.
