Yesterday I went and watched Multiverse of Madness again in theaters (IMAX, of course) to not only see the film featuring my favorite superhero of all time again but to grasp the story details a little bit better. And to my great surprise, I enjoyed the film even more!
My first viewing was a rollercoaster of emotions to absorb. From the shock of knowing that Wanda was the unapologetic villain of the movie to the roiling adventure that literally feels like it’s going nonstop for two hours straight. It was a lot to take in and I missed a lot.
So, with this second viewing, there were some things I enjoyed even more like the action sequences, of course, but most importantly, the emotional beats.
Since Doctor Strange, Stephen Strange has barely had any character development outside of his growing skill with his spellbook. To finally resume his arc by forcing him to literally face alternate versions of himself to better understand his place in the multiverse was simply brilliant.
In this post, I want to dive into the absolutely stellar character progression in this film and how it all came to be.
Okay, it’s time to share my next five favorite posters. Enjoy!
15. Mr. Knight Gets a Poster
I love a good character poster and this one blew my mind. I’m still kind of in shock that we’re actually getting the Mr. Knight persona in Moon Knight. I barely know anything about the character but I do love his outfit and yes, Marvel Studios has brought it to life. I’m so excited.
14. The Beginning of Doctor Strange
The Doctor Strange movies have always had some of the best posters and this one, of course, is no exception. The colors, the fact that you can still see Cumberbatch’s face through his fingers, and the iconic window of the Sanctum Sanctorum acting as a backdrop is just the perfect layout for this remarkable poster. Marvel Studios really did cast the PERFECT person to play Doctor Strange.
13. Marc Spector is the Moon Knight
Simple yet brilliant, this poster’s supernatural vibe lets us know that this show will be entirely different than anything we’ve seen in the MCU before and that alone is worth getting excited about.
12. The Legacy of the Jedi
When this teaser poster first came out I remember staring at it for days for any clues it could provide about the film. It was a fascinatingly bold poster with so much thought put into it.
Its obvious connection to the poster for A New Hope made one realize that Rey was truly the next hope for a new generation of Jedi. Her lightsaber, changing from blue to purple to red made me wonder if this poster was hinting toward her turn to the dark side. Luke Skywalker didn’t exactly look benevolent, Kylo Ren would be an important figure in Rey’s story, and the striking red color made me instantly think of the Sith.
It was a lot to process but beyond all of the movie implications the poster was signaling, it’s also a beautiful poster as well.
11. The Avengers Have Assembled
Avengers: Infinity Warwas one heck of a movie and this poster made it very clear that we would get to see roughly every MCU superhero take a stand against one of the greatest movie villains of all time, Thanos. How the artists managed to fit every single character onto this poster without it ever feeling overstuffed is impressive enough as it is, and then the poster’s actually gorgeous too?!
When I first saw it my mind was blown and even now I still love to look at it.
So those are the next five posters to make my list. Now we’re about to get into my top 10 and I am very excited to share them with you.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day.
It’s almost time! Tomorrow is the big day and I am ready for every moment. Of course, there are some things that I’m more excited for than others.
First off, I’m very excited to check out a new enhanced experience for the streaming service which features IMAX Enhanced MCU movies…meaning the aspect ratio that comes with watching a film in an IMAX movie in theaters will be available on Disney+.
The MCU movies that will be getting this treat are as follows:
1. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings
2. Avengers: Infinity War
3. Avengers: Endgame
4. Guardians of the Galaxy 1 and 2
5. Ant-Man and the Wasp
6. Doctor Strange
7. Captain America: Civil War
8. Iron Man
9. Black Widow
10. Black Panther
11. Thor: Ragnarok
12. Captain Marvel
I am an IMAX enthusiast so you can imagine my excitement. It’s also exciting because I didn’t get the chance to see Iron Man or Civil War in IMAX so that’s going to be a treat.
