Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Has a Lower Metacritic Score Than Its Prequel
Dr Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is almost here and MCU fans all over the world are bubbling with anticipation. The red carpet event and premiere for the same happened recently and the critics have already had their say about the movie. However, the average Metacritic score for the movie might not be a very good sign.
Currently, Doctor strange 2 sits at a score of 64 after considering 41 reviews. Surprisingly, the prequel i.e. Doctor Strange sits at a score of 72 with 49 reviews considered. This is definitely a head scratcher considering the hype and anticipation around Multiverse of Madness.
The best review gives the Doctor Strange sequel a Nine out of Ten. However, the worst review yet which is posted by New York Post, calls it one of the worst movies of this year and gives it a 1 out of 4 rating. While all this might seem a little concerning, there’s a reason why it doesn’t really matter that much.
Several other MCU movies have had a score lower than 70 but have performed really well at the box office. For example, Avengers: Infinity War has a score of 68, Iron Man 3 sits at 62, and even Captain America: The First Avenger has a low score of 66. However, these movies did extremely well in terms of earnings where Infinity War is still the 4th highest-grossing movie of all time.
So, there isn’t really a very strong cause for concern right now. However, there could be a possibility that the global ticket sales are affected after multiple countries imposed bans on Doctor Strange 2. This could definitely affect the earnings, but hopefully will not be a substantial loss.
Nevertheless, die hard MCU fans already know that they HAVE to watch the movie no matter what as this could be a very important inflection point in the MCU Phase 4. There are lots of rumoured and confirmed cameos for the movie so there is added incentive to watch it.
