The multiverse is finally here. Nearly a year after it officially started to crack open during the events of Loki, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has arrived with its Hollywood premiere. Marvel Studios and Disney aligned the social reaction embargo with the ending of the Hollywood premiere, allowing critics and members of the media to tweet their thoughts immediately after it was over.
As you might suspect from a Marvel Studios premiere, a substantial amount of critics appear to have enjoyed the movie, with many praising its far-reaching plot and dedication to the source material. Some criticisms include the picture's expansive cast and breakneck action pace.

Ultimately wasn't a big fan of #DoctorStrange in the #MultiverseOfMadness, but one thing's for sure: it's a stylistic buffet. Started off rather tame, but it got crazier as it went on. It had some laughs, fun visuals, and an entertaining score. pic.twitter.com/wcJZJfEwvN— Film Poser™️ Josie Marie 🇵🇷 (@TheJosieMarie) May 3, 2022
Brutal and Violent
Just watched #MultiverseOfMadness and it’s a Sam Raimi film through and through. It features some of the most brutal and violent moments we’ve seen in the MCU. The darker elements are blended with silly humor and snippets of horror. It’s a BLAST. #DoctorStrange #MarvelStudios pic.twitter.com/JFScZyahOQ— Joshua Ryan (@MrMovieGuy86) May 3, 2022
