CBS has created a list of what to watch before seeing the new Dr. Strange flick. Of course, the first Dr. Strange movie is a must watch. The Disney+ series WandaVision is on the list as well. And at this point, if you haven’t seen Spider-Man: No Way Home, you’re on your own.
The list also includes Disney+ animated series What If? Good news is, if you don’t have time to sit down and watch a whole series before Dr. Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, HypeFresh contributor Stephanie Garcia has broken down the crucial fourth episode. Check it out here.
The Reviews Are In
Nicholas Barber of BBC’s Culture review gives a ton of credit to screenwriter Waldron. Barber says he has knitted together an immensely complicated yet largely comprehensible dimension-jumping plot.” Barber goes on to say, “[Waldron] has rightly given McAdams and Wong much more to do than they had in the previous Doctor Strange film, and he has incorporated lots of big surprises that the studio has managed to keep quiet about.” Ultimately, he gives credit where credit is due. In support of the MCU director, he concludes that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, “feels like a Raimi project to the core.”
