“Face your fears, Doctor Strange.”

Fantastic for the offices of Marvel to really stretch and deliver a mind-bending horror thriller of proportions that almost leaves you in a quiet place.

I know it’s cheesy, took me awhile to figure out the wording :)

What a ride!

Required viewings of WandaVision & What If… would definitely come in handy.

Sam Raimi returns to Marvel with probably one of the biggest comic book sequels since the Avengers: Endgame (not that No Way Home wasn’t huge, this is just a different vibe cuz of Raimi’s return). You can tell that this is a Sam Raimi movie, both visually, as well as the blood & goriness. 

The decision to make Wanda the villain was an interesting choice, even from the trailers I had an inclination, but never really quite sure. I also find it interesting that they’ve never really addressed her as Scarlet Witch til now.

The one thing I actually found funny (and sad) was that they (Marvel) have now killed Professor X three times! Once in X-Men: The Last Stand, then in Logan, and now here, it’s just insane to me.

Comparing it to Everything Everywhere All at Once, both introduce the idea of a multiverse in their own unique ways, but to say one did it better than the other is a tad far fetched. However, because Marvel had already cracked open that nut with No Way Home, gotta give credit where credit is due 👏

All in all, though the runtime was short and things could’ve been cleared up early on, I had a good time with it.

Plus, as a side note, I hoped Tom Cruise as an Iron Man variant would be here, and sadly, he wasn’t :(
