The highly anticipated sequel to 2016’s Doctor Strange is set to release worldwide in just a few days after multiple delays due to the pandemic. The film will see the eagerly awaited return of not just Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Doctor Strange but also Elizabeth Olsen as Wanda Maximoff, who we last saw in the WandaVision finale. The film could be one of Marvel Studios most ambitious projects, as we embark into the multiverse after only getting a taste of is in Loki and Spider-Man: No Way Home. The film just had its red carpet premiere in Los Angeles and the social embargo has lifted releasing a wave of initial reactions to the film.
Not every review was glowing for the film, as it seems some didn’t have the same enjoyment from the film and saw a conflict between Raimi‘s usual vision not meshing well with the script, or even stating his style hasn’t evolved from his earliest filmmaking days.
