Doctor Strange continues to make a big impact at the box office.
According to Deadline, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has officially surpassed the $400 million milestone at the box office, proving that the multiverse is still alive and well. Doctor Strange is currently the tenth film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe to reach this milestone, trailing only Captain America: Civil War. In the United States, the MCU film is presently the 11th highest-grossing picture based on a Marvel comic, trailing only Spider-Man (2002) and ahead of Spider-Man: Far From Home.
The latest episode of the Marvel Cinematic Universe raked in $187 million on its opening weekend and lasted at the top of the box office for three weeks before being challenged by Top Gun: Maverick, which has already surpassed its domestic total. Despite being overshadowed by Maverick, Doctor Strange is still the second highest-grossing film at the domestic box office and the top grossing film of the year globally.
Despite the fact that it is now improbable that the picture will gross $1 billion worldwide, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has amassed an astounding box office total of $932 million despite the fact that it has yet to be released in several key countries such as China and Russia. The box office appears to be making a solid recovery, thanks to the success of Doctor Strange and Maverick, as well as other recent films.
This year, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will be followed by two MCU theatrical releases: Thor: Love and Thunder on July 8 and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever on November 11. Benedict Cumberbatch, Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Rachel McAdams, and Michael Stuhlbarg star in the film, which is directed by Sam Raimi, who previously directed his Spider-Man trilogy.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently in theaters and will be available to stream on Disney Plus on June 22. On July 26, the film will be released in 4k Ultra HD, Blu-Ray, and DVD formats.
