‘Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness’ Surpasses Half a Billion at the Global Box Office
With the Marvel adventure seeking the jumpstart the summer film slate, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has now surpassed half a billion at the global box office.
It is undeniable that Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has inherited both functionalities as a multiversal story, and the massive weight and expectation from Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Both films were highly anticipated by fans for the uncertainty that could come of them, with both revolving around themes that could create situations in which non-MCU characters made their way into the universe.
Spider-Man: No Way Home gave fans one of the best comic book movie moments and was a record-breaking financial success for both Sony and Marvel, and it seems as though the Doctor Strange sequel has followed in its footsteps in that regard as well.
In a report Tweeted from Boxoffice Pro, it seems as though Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has already surpassed half a billion at the global box office, with 49 Markets bringing in an astounding $688.1 million.
The domestic box office, it appears, is also approaching the $400 million mark, and it will be interesting to consider just how high those numbers can get, considering both the history of Marvel film’s success, and the excitement surrounding this film.

We don’t believe that it will approach the massive heights of Spider-Man: No Way Home, but it is completely plausible that the film will eventually surpass both $400 million at the domestic box office and $700 million at the global box office.
With those numbers, it seems as though the Sam Raimi-led Doctor strange sequel has firmly established itself as the second-biggest film of the pandemic era; only trailing, you guessed it, Spider-Man: No Way Home.
As with all things Marvel, however, there is no telling when the train will begin to slow down, as Marvel fans have always shown a propensity to support the theatrical runs of their favorite MCU films.
