Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness actually garnered mixed reviews from the public. Some praise its performances, particularly Olsen as she transforms from the miserable and alone Wanda into the frightening Scarlet Witch. Gomez’s debut as America has also been heralded, leaving many excited to see what’s next for her in the MCU. But, there are some glaring criticisms of the sequel as well. As exciting as the mid-credits scene is, not everyone is exactly impressed by it, especially since there is barely any set-up to Charlize Theron’s Clea introduction. Overall, some have argued that

Eternals moves away from that trend.

Moon Knight on Disney+, on the other hand, take the time to really focus on their titular characters. That being said, Marvel Studios need to make sure that at the end of the day, their stories are solid. Screen Rant’s Pitch Meeting for
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness highlights some narrative weaknesses in the film. Had they been fixed, the sequel would have benefitted.,More: Iron Man Already Proved The Illuminati Exists In The MCU’s Main Timeline
