Among the most elaborate MCU films to date, Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange ventures between dimensions and encounters many versions of himself in The Multiverse of Madness. The movie features a number of Marvel characters, including Wanda Maximoff played by Elizabeth Olsen, who is hunting for the multiverse-traveling America Chavez played by Xochitl Gomez. On May 6, 2022, Doctor Strange 2 was released in theatres and on June 22, 2022, it was made available on Disney+. The movie has now set a milestone for the MCU on Disney+ in terms of viewership, as a brand-new audience jumps back into the chaos of the Multiverse. Here are the details:
Smashing the records with Doctor Strange:
Samba TV just revealed updated data for the Disney+ launch of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and the results show that the movie has broken a previous best for viewership. During the first 5 days of its digital premiere, 2.1 million US households watched Benedict Cumberbatch’s most recent picture, the platform claims. This particular claim now places the most current MCU project at the top. In contrast, the latest Eternals movie came in slightly below Multiverse of Madness with 2 million US households watching it in a comparable time frame.
Other milestones for The Multitude of Madness:
Since it’s release on Disney+, the Doctor Strange movie has already set several benchmarks for the MCU. The film recently received a 14+, the highest age rating for a Marvel Studios production in the UK. Whatever the case, it appears that the film has been receiving considerable success since its streaming and digital release. Interestingly, people seem to enjoy it even more now than they did in May in the theatres. Since Cumberbatch is currently one of the MCU’s most important characters, we can assume that we will be seeing Strange on screen sooner than we thought. Most probably, his next adventure may be with Clea, where the pair may work together to stop an incursion. Regardless of the what it may be, the actor has recently revealed that he would “love to do another one” because there is “so much more to explore” with regard to his character.
