What Is "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" About?

Doctor Stephen Strange (Cumberbatch) uses his powers to open a portal to a multiverse, which contains multiple alternate realities and dimensions. In doing this, Dr. Strange also leaves the world vulnerable to opposing forces, including Wanda Maximoff, who uses her powers for her own selfish desires. When Dr. Strange meets dimensional traveler America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez), he has to fight to protect her from Wanda, who seeks to use her so she can travel through the multiverse herself.

Is "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" Available to Stream Now?

Unfortunately, "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" has an exclusive theatrical release and is not available to stream at the moment.

When Will "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" Be Available to Stream on Disney+?

Since the start of the pandemic in 2020, Disney has carefully planned and navigated the release of original titles. In 2021, the company announced that many of their exclusive films, including "Encanto" and "West Side Story," would have exclusive theatrical runs ranging from 30 to 45 days and hit Disney+ afterwards. The Marvel films of that year, including "Shang-Chi and the Legend of Ten Rings" and "Eternals" had longer exclusive theatrical runs with approximately 70 days in theaters, according to Newsweek.

The platform has not formally announced a streaming date for "Doctor Strange 2" yet, but "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" could follow in its Marvel predecessors and have a lengthy run in theaters. If this is the case, we can expect the film, which released on May 6, to hit Disney+ sometime in mid-July. If it follows a 45-day release, it could be available to stream as early as June 20.
