As Doctor Strange 2 is inching closer, Marvel Studios has made a decision to disable its comments on social media, in order to prepare for the much-anticipated premiere of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
As the world gears up for the premiere of the Doctor Strange sequel, and with social media looming with way too many spoilers, Marvel Studio has disabled comments on both Instagram and Twitter. On the post, Marvel shared another message: “See you on the other side of the Multiverse. Replies will now be disabled.”
Here’s the tweet for Doctor Strange 2:

Of course, there is a lot to spoil in a movie like Multiverse of Madness, with Doctor Strange (played by Benedict Cumberbatch), Wong (portrayed by Benedict Wong) and Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch (played by Elizabeth Olsen) all ready to face alternate versions of themselves. After the success of No Way Home, it was revealed that Multiverse of Madness will see “more fun with the multiverse,” with various reshoots and more cameos than ever. The initial trailer confirmed appearances from Patrick Stewart as Professor X, and Captain Carter, who made her debut in Marvel’s What If…? series, and the debut of America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez).
‘The Most Complex” Film of Sam Raimi’s Career
Cumberbatch has earlier commented on the massive scale of production, even saying that he felt if the sequel wasn’t really “his” movie. “There’s a lot of stuff going on in it,” he said. “It’s like, do I have a character arc in this? Is it working? No, there’s great stuff for me to do. It’s very busy. It’s called The Multiverse of Madness, and it’s bonkers.”
Spider-Man trilogy director Sam Raimi had also described the movie as “very complex,” terming it as the most complex film of his entire career. “It’s probably the most complex movie I’ve ever had anything to do with,” Raimi said. “Not just dealing with one character or even five characters, but multiversal versions of those characters — and each one has a storyline.” Doctor Strange 2 wrapped its extensive reshoots back in January, directed by Raimi and Loki writer Michael Waldron. Earlier, Scott Derrickson was supposed to helm the project but Sam Raimi took over the directorial duties from him later.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will hit the theaters on May 6.
