There are spoilers ahead in this story. Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness has an official release date on Disney Plus, and it may be a lot sooner than you think. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olson, the Doctor Strange sequel will arrive on the streaming platform on June 22.
The announcement comes surprisingly soon after its May 6 release date in the UK – and one month since it debuted in the US. The film follows in the wake of Shang-Chi and Eternals, which arrived on Disney Plus soon after their theatrical runs.
According to Forbes, the sequel has amassed more than $800 million (at the time of writing) at the box office. Domestically, Doctor Strange 2 is currently the highest-grossing film of the year, pipping Matt Reeves’ The Batman to the top spot. Spider-Man: No Way Home takes the third spot, with Tom Holland’s other blockbuster Uncharted, stealing sixth.

Alongside the release of the Doctor Strange sequel, the latest Marvel series Ms Marvel will be premiering on Disney Plus from June 8, with the finale airing on July 13. Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness, directed by Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man trilogy director Sam Raimi, fully realises the multiverse as Wanda Maximoff attempts to harness the power of a multiverse traveller to reunite with Billy and Tommy – the children she’d created with magic in Westview.
As the film delves into the limitless possibilities of the multiverse, Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer encounters the Illuminati, Sinister Strange, and a universe where everybody becomes liquified paint. Plus, if that’s not enough, there’s a surprise cameo from The Evil Dead’s Bruce Campbell.
Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness also stars Xochitl Gomez, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Patrick Stewart, Hayley Atwell, and John Krasinski. For more Marvel content, make sure to take a look at FlickLuster’s review for Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness.
