What To Watch Before Multiverse Of Madness?
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is currently in theatres right now and it’s safe to say it’s doing very well. The film, directed by the horror maestro, brings something completely new to the MCU which has not been seen before.
So even if you’re not a fan of the MCU, this flick is still worth checking out. But if you want to be prepared, you don’t need to watch more than 10 ten years of films for it. This guide will give you the Marvel content you need to watch before enjoying the new film fully. So without further ado, let’s begin.
What movies should I watch before Multiverse Of Madness?
Before we begin, we have to mention that the film can be enjoyed just as it is as well. But if you do go through these films and shows mentioned, your experience will be much better. So let’s start with the first MCU film-
Avengers Age of Ultron
Avengers Age of Ultron is the second film of the Avengers franchise. While it doesn’t feature Doctor Strange in it, it introduced Wanda Maximoff into the MCU for the first time. So considering how important she is to the plot of the new film, this film is probably important.
Since the new film is a sequel, it’s no surprise that this one is a must-watch. It introduces Doctor Strange into the MCU and is the origin story of the character. This one is definitely a must-watch if you want a deep understanding of the character.
Avengers Infinity War
The third film in the Avengers franchise and one of the most successful Marvel films ever made. The Doctor is one more prominent character in the movie with a very big role to play. Also, a very important part of Wanda’s story also takes place in this film.
The second part of the infinity war saga, this film also stands as one of the top films in the MCU. When it comes to Marvel, this film can be considered a must-watch for nearly all the storylines. Although both Wanda and Doctor Strange are in the final battle, so this does play a part in their story.
This might be one of the more odd entries into the list. Kevin Feige did say that some elements from this anthology series will be seen in future Marvel films. So without spoiling much, let’s just say the new Doctor Strange sequel does make good on that claim.
Shang Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
Speaking of odd entries, this awesome surprise hit is another one. The film focuses on a brand new hero Shang Chi and his origin story. But we do also get to see what Wong is up to and he is somewhat of an important character in the new Doctor Strange film. So do give Shang Chi’s film a shot if you want more Wong.
“WandaVision” is the first Disney+ original show and it takes place right after the events of Endgame. It is all about Wanda and shows how past events had affected her while teasing where she will go next. So as you may have guessed this short series is a must-watch before going for the new sequel.
Spider-Man No Way Home
Spider-Man No Way Home is one of the more recent MCU films and is the most successful film in the pandemic era. Doctor Strange himself is very prominent in the film and its events lead directly to Doctor Strange 2. So just like “WandaVision”, this is also a must-watch.
And that’s it. You can find most of these movies on Disney+. Once you go through a few or all of the above films, you’ll have a much better experience with the Doctor’s sequel film. But since you have worked so hard to watch all this, you should at least know what the new film is about, so let’s go over that too.
What is the movie Doctor Strange in the Multiverse Of Madness about?
After preventing the Multiverse from unleashing in Spider-Man No Way Home, Doctor Strange is now at leisure as the master of the Sanctum. But by either luck or fate, he finds himself again at the mercy of the Multiverse and this time he might not be able to stop it.
Also, you will se what Wanda is up to after fully embracing the title of Scarlet Witch back in “WandaVision.” While it is an MCU superhero flick, we have famed horror director Sam Raimi who does not hold back. His skills allow this sequel film to be a haunting experience that has never before been seen in Marvel.
The events of the Doctor Strange sequel take place right after Spider-Man No Way Home.
Yes, the events of WandaVision are important to Wanda’s story, who is a prominent character in the Doctor Strange sequel.
