Apparently, there are a lot of Marvel movie fans out there thirsty to get back into theaters, because Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has just broken Fandango's advanced ticket sales record for 2022. Advanced tickets for Doctor Strange 2 went on sale yesterday, Wednesday, April 6th; in the first 20 hours, Multiverse of Madness managed to sell more tickets than any other film in 2022 (so far) – including DC's The Batman, which has since grossed $351.8 million at the domestic box office, and $714.5 million, worldwide. With that line of comparison in mind, it feels safe to say that Marvel Studios is likely to have another billion-dollar winner on its hands with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

"The epic first day of presales for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness proves fans are beyond excited to experience all the thrills, chills and blockbuster surprises Marvel Studios is known to deliver," said Fandango Managing Editor Erik Davis in a statement.


With Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness opening the door to an entire Marvel Cinematic Multiverse (with all kinds of epic surprises and twists), there's no surprise that fans are lining up to get into theaters first, to experience all the reveals before they are trending on social media as spoilers.
