A new threat emerges that threatens the multiverse in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. When an interdimensional threat arrives in New York City, Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) comes into contact with America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez), a young woman with the ability to travel between universes. This sets the stage for a battle for control of the multiverse, which involves the current Sorcerer Supreme Wong (Benedict Wong), the Scarlet Witch Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), Strange's ex-girlfriend Dr. Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams) and his old adversary Baron Karl Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor).
Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead, Spider-Man) takes the reins for the latest film of Phase IV of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and acts as both a direct follow-up to last year's Spider-Man: No Way Home, as well as the Disney+ series WandaVision. Since it is going to be hard delving into the rest of the film without spoilers, I'm going to summarize my thoughts on the film by saying that I thought that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness ended up being a solid mix of action, horror, and surprise cameos. The rest of the review will now go into SPOILER territory, so you have been warned.
