Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness had its Red Carper premiere on May 2, giving fans their first look at Doctor Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and the mind-blowing journey of Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) through the multiverse. Marvel Studios has adapted a bulletproof strategy to prevent movie spoilers from being posted online after the red carpet event.
The studio said all replies and comments on official accounts on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook have been disabled in an effort to prevent fans from discussing the sequel in the respective comment sections. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is ready to make its mark and fans are eagerly awaiting the story to unfold.
Marvel Studios Disables Social Media Comments
With the possibility of potential spoilers as Marvel prepares for the world premiere of its Doctor Strange sequel, the @MarvelStudios account has blocked comments on Twitter and Instagram. This could help them keep major cameos and surprises in the movie a secret. Marvel revealed this in a somber post on Instagram and Twitter: “See you on the other side of the multiverse. Replies will now be disabled.

Nearly 10 million Marvel Studios fans are unable to react to tweets from @MarvelStudios or the official @DoctorStrange account. It’s worth mentioning that this is the first time a major studio has done something like this, which means Doctor Strange 2 will be full of surprises. Of course, it’s unusual these days for a superhero movie to avoid at least a few leaks, and a plot breakdown (which may or may not be true) has been circulating for some time.
What do we know so far?
An insider alleged last month that Multiverse of Madness contains “more big surprises” than Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame, and Spider-Man: No Way Home combined, with reshoots featuring even more cameos than originally intended. Captain Carter (Hayley Atwell), a variant of Captain Marvel (Lashana Lynch), the leader of the X-Men, Professor Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) of the MCU Illuminati, and the live-action appearance of America Chavez, played by Xochitl Gomez, are all confirmed.
The film’s director, Sam Raimi, called it “very complex”, calling it the most complex film of his career. “It’s probably the most complex movie I’ve ever had to do. Not just one character or even five characters, but multiversal versions of those characters — and each one has a storyline,” Raimi said. Although the film follows the occurrences of No Way Home, Multiverse of Madness will also connect to two of Marvel’s Disney+ series – WandaVision and Loki, both of which deal with the multiverse to a large extent.
Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Elizabeth Olsen, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Michael Stühlbarg and Rachel McAdams, directed by Sam Raimi and produced by Kevin Feige, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness opens exclusively in theaters May 6.
