It seems we may have missed a little detail from yesterday’s Disney Earning all. while most o our focus was primarily on the impressive growth that Disney+ had in the last quarter of 2021. Yet, there was also a brief mention of the fact by Disney CEO that Bob Chapek confirmed the upcoming release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will land on Disney+ in the summer. Of course, the film won’t release until May of this year but it’s great to have a confirmation that it will release on the streaming service in a similar time window that we saw with Eternals or Shang-Chi. The confirmation was shared by @azalben on Twitter.
Disney has generally focused on shortening the release window between their projects, as they are not only trying to bank on the box office success but also growing their internal streaming service. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will likely be filled to the brim with easter eggs and Disney+ will be the best place to start looking for what one might’ve missed while watching it in theaters.
Disney+ has become the home for all of Disney’s IPs but during the Earnings Call, Chapek hinted that they want to also include the Spider-Man films, but Sony’s dealings are going to keep them from doing so. We know Spider-Man: No Way Home is heading to Starz first and Sony does have a deal that their projects will eventually land on Disney+, but there’s still no clear time window when we can expect it. So, for now, we’ll have to wait for further confirmation.
