American Filmmaker Sam Raimi, who’s well known for his Spider-Man Trilogy as well as for Evil Dead. Raimi replaced Scott Derrickson as the director of Doctor Strange 2. While many fans are appreciating Raimi’s work, some are against the motion.

From the disappointment of absent cameos to the lack of enjoyment of Sam Raimi’s horror style, this may be among the most dissenting entries into the MCU. These are the mistakes that affected Marvel’s Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.

Doctor Strange 2 CGI were not up to the mark!

While Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness had a lot to do with animation and graphics, the movie lacked it in some parts. Fans noticed few scenes were too obvious to be faked. In the movie, there was a scene when Doctor Strange along with Wong and America Chavez were dealing with a giant tentacled monster, half of the shots in this whole fight mismatched lighting. Not only that, in another scene when Strange, Wong and Chavez were standing on a rooftop where they had to bury another universe’s Doctor Strange, the CGI was completely visible. Many keen-eyed fans noticed that the wide shot of that rooftop looked like a very obvious sound-stage shot that NYC had been CGI’d onto.

Good Moments Went Fast in Doctor Strange 2

Sam Raimi’s directed Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness hyped the excitement level when the Super Bowl advertisement was released. The Illuminati could have been the best moment of the movie with Scarlet Witch facing the Illuminati but sadly, it practically ended in a few moments. The Illuminati consisted of heroes with incredible strength and power but their fights were not up to that level.

Sam Raimi’s horror touch up to the movie was something new, especially for Marvel. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness became the first MCU horror film. Though it didn’t really have those horror moments if we compare it to other Marvel movies, it certainly did entertain the fans to some extent.

Though there are mistakes, the fact stands high that Raimi directed Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is already doing great at the box office and fans are overall happy with the outcome.
