THE WONG FANDOM IS DYING.
LIKE IF YOU ARE A TRUE WONGER.
As we go deeper into the multiverse, Marvel has to keep in check with the inconsistencies of the world jumping. It might cause damage to the entire fundamentals of the series.
But for now, Doctor Strange 2 is a fun trippy ride. Its been nearly a decade since Sam Rami has directed a feature film and it truly remarkable that he chose to come back to superhero filmmaking. Even with Feige’s artistic touches, Rami break the formula for his horror sensibilities. That means there’s a bunch of crushing violence, campy special effects, and turning camerawork. Wanda (Elizabeth Olsen) gives it her all with a demonic evil performance for the ages. Fans of WandaVision will be pleased by the rewarding experience. Also, the usage of cameos are used to perfection and are a part of Wanda’s destruction.
I think this is the second best Phase 4 film behind No Way Home. It definitely feel for the first time, a true comic book page turner.
Side note: Avatar 2 trailer made me nut 💦
