July 7, 2022 0 Comments

Though there are plans for the team in the future, 
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness‘ Honest Trailer raises some valid concerns about the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s X-Men. The recently released sequel saw a longer development cycle than many MCU sequels as original co-writer/director Scott Derrickson departed with creative partner C. Robert Cargill over creative differences with Marvel Studios. Sam Raimi would come on to take the helm and start from scratch on 
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness with 
Loki creator Michael Waldron being brought on to pen the script.,Benedict Cumberbatch returned to lead 
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness as the titular sorcerer meets the multiverse-traveling America Chavez and learns she is being hunted down by a corrupted Wanda Maximoff, who wants to take her powers to head to another universe and be reunited with her sons. The MCU sequel was met with generally positive reviews from critics for Raimi’s stylish direction, a shift to a horror tone and Elizabeth Olsen’s performance, while criticism was directed towards its overstuffed plot and rushed pacing. In spite of its reviews, 
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was a box office smash, grossing over $951 million against its $200 million production budget, initially becoming the highest-grossing film of the year, only to be recently surpassed by 
Top Gun: Maverick.,Related: Marvel’s Perfect MCU X-Men Debut Avoids Eternals’ Worst Mistake,Just weeks after its streaming premiere,

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Honest Trailer points out, many audiences have been left concerned about what the future could hold for both the X-Men and the Fantastic Four in the MCU with the deaths of both Patrick Stewart’s Charles Xavier and John Krasinski’s Reed Richards. Marvel has already confirmed plans for both superhero teams in the future, with a 
Fantastic Four film having been in the works with 
Spider-Man: No Way Home‘s Jon Watts set to direct, though he stepped down earlier this year as he wanted to take a break from the superhero genre, and a mutant-centered movie. Given Stewart’s return as Xavier in the sequel, many MCU fans were hopeful 
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness would introduce the X-Men to the fold, though his death has left many uncertain about how they will make their franchise debuts.,The other major criticism from the 
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Honest Trailer audiences are sure to agree with is Wanda’s actions in the MCU sequel after the emotional nature of 
WandaVision. Olsen has frequently defended her arc in the film, explaining that Wanda is processing big emotions and that she was corrupted by the Darkhold, though many have felt the former was properly explored in the Disney+ series and that the closure of her story felt underwhelming.
