Marvel Cinematic Universe and Walt Disney Motion Picture’s next to watch Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness releases worldwide and people are really loving to watch this movie in theaters, from May 6, 2022. Here is everything that you need to know about Doctor Strange 2 movie release.
Doctor Strange 2 movie world premiere held at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood on May 2, 2022, released in the United Kingdom on May 5, 2022, and in the United States on May 6, in 4DX, RealD 3D, IMAX, Dolby Cinema, ScreenX, and Superscreen. Originally, it was set for release on May 7, 2021, but was pushed back to November 5, 2021, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, before it was further shifted to March 25, 2022, after Sony rescheduled Spider-Man: No Way Home to November 2021.
In October 2021, it was shifted once more to its current May 2022 date. The film is part of Phase Four of the MCU.
In April 2022, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that the film would not be released in Saudi Arabia due to the inclusion of America Chavez, a gay character. Nawaf Alsabhan, Saudi Arabia’s general supervisor of cinema classification, said the film had not been banned from the country but revealed that Disney was “not willing” to grant their request of cutting “barely 12 seconds” of a scene in which Chavez refers to her “two moms”.
The film had been set to release in several Persian Gulf countries on May 5, before advanced tickets were removed from cinema websites in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Qatar.
Tickets were still available in the United Arab Emirates, which The Hollywood Reporter stated was an indication that the film could still be released there.
IMAX Corporation also confirmed that the film would not be released in Egypt.
Benedict Cumberbatch was disappointed by the countries’ decisions to not release the film, said:
“We’ve come to know from those repressive regimes that their lack of tolerance is exclusionary to people who deserve to be not only included, but celebrated for who they are and made to feel part of a society and a culture and not punished for their sexuality. It feels truly out of step with everything that we’ve experienced as a species, let alone where we’re at globally more as a culture, but frankly, it’s just even more reason why this isn’t tokenism to include an LGBTQ+ community member“.
Deadline Hollywood also reported that the film was unlikely to release in China after the lettering for The Epoch Times, a newspaper that opposes the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), was noticed in some footage. The film had been submitted for review to Chinese officials by that time.
