At this point, it doesn’t seem like the fate of Multiverse of Madness will be influenced by new releases like Jayeshbhai Jordaar. Also starring Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Michael Stuhlbarg and Rachel McAdams, director Sam Raimi’s film pits the titular superhero against a threat to the multiverse.
In terms of worldwide collections, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has amassed $552.05 million (Rs 4,277 crore) to date. In its home market, North America, the film grossed $230.85 million.
The film had started its theatrical journey with a worldwide weekend opening of $450 million and in India it grossed Rs 79.50 crore in its first three days.
The film also features cameos from the likes of John Krasinski, Patrick Stewart, Haley Atwell, Charlize Theron, Lashana Lynch.
The Indian Express film critic Shalini Langer gave the film a mixed review. She wrote, “You can go universe to universe, forward and backward, to the 838th version of Doctor Strange or the 613th (the two specifically mentioned here), one thing remains constant. Everywhere you go, Marvel will follow you. It may be the Multiverse of Madness (which it is), but it is above all the Multiverse of Marvel. Space Continuum only takes you from one character to another, as much as you can cram into two hours of movie time.”
