Are you ready to see Marvel’s latest massive superhero film? The sequel to 2016’s Doctor Strange, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, will be released in theatres on Friday.
But what about streaming possibilities at home? Based on recent Marvel films, you might expect the Benedict Cumberbatch-starring film to arrive on Disney Plus soon after its premiere. That’s a distinct possibility. Let’s get into the specifics.
When will the latest Marvel film be available to stream?
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness does not yet have a Disney Plus release date, but the Benedict Cumberbatch-led sequel will undoubtedly arrive on the streaming service soon.
Except for the Spider-Man films (which are complicated by Spidey’s partnership with Sony, therefore Spider-Man: No Way Home isn’t on Disney Plus yet), all Marvel films released by Disney eventually end up on the streaming platform following their theatrical release.
On Disney Plus, when will Doctor Strange 2 be released?
We’ve done our best to determine a release date even though we don’t have one yet. Eternals was released on Netflix 70 days after its cinematic run, while Shang-Chi followed a similar timeline. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is expected to hit theatres between 70 and 90 days following its theatrical premiere.
Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings premiered in theatres in September, followed by a two-month run on Disney Plus (or 70 days). Eternals premiered in theatres in November, and it was released on Disney Plus two months later (68 days). (Note: Due to a confusing license-sharing contract with Sony, the Christmas film Spider-Man: No Way Home is unlikely to be included in Disney Plus anytime soon.) So, can we expect Doctor Strange 2 to be released on Disney Plus in July? When we factor in the 70 days since its May 6 release, we arrive at a July 15 Disney Plus release date.
The conclusion of Ms Marvel on Disney Plus (beginning June 8) and the theatrical premiere of Thor: Love and Thunder on July 8 could push this back even more. Stay tuned for Disney’s formal announcement.
