Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

Legendary director Sam Raimi reinvigorated the superhero film when he directed the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man films in the early 2000s. Now, he's returning to the Marvel fold with this mega-sequel, drawing on his horror roots (we'll be screening his iconic Evil Dead films very soon) to take the Marvel universe in new, darker directions.

Having rewritten reality itself in Spider-Man: No Way Home, Benedict Cumberbatch's Doctor Strange learns the hard way that there are dangerous consequences to dabbling in forbidden ancient magic. As his long-time friend and ally Wong (Benedict Wong) gravely warns him "you opened the doorway between universes...and we don't know who or what will walk through it".

Seeking as much help as he can find to keep the forces of darkness at bay, Strange turns to the Avengers' ultra-powerful magic-user The Scarlet Witch AKA Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen), last seen manipulating reality with her own brand of dark magic in Disney%2B's hit show WandaVision.

Among the foes Strange must come up against include alternate versions of himself from parallel universes, and Raimi looks set to deliver even more mind-bending, dimension-shifting action than the first Doctor Strange film. While Spider-Man: No Way Home and Loki opened the door to the multiverse in the MCU, if rumours are to be believed, the Marvel universe could be about to get a whole lot bigger and stranger in this bumper-sized superhero blow-out.
