The anticipation for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has been high ever since it was confirmed that it will tackle the concept of alternate realities. The upcoming sequel is directed by Sam Raimi (Spider-Man), and it will feature the return of Benedict Cumberbatch's titular sorcerer as he grapples with the consequences of his decision to break the Multiverse wide open in Spider-Man: No Way Home

Marketing for Multiverse of Madness has been ramping up as it inches closer to its May premiere. Alongside the release of posters and official merchandise, rumors about its plot and potential cameos have also spread like wildfire on social media, driving more hype for the film. 

Now, amidst the fan-driven conversations on social media, an important update about the sequel that should excite audiences has arrived.

Hype for Doctor Strange 2 Continues 

This latest update about Multiverse of Madness should serve as an added boost for those waiting to see the sequel on the big screen, especially considering the high demand for the movie. 

Based on previous ticket sales, there has been a common trend for massive MCU films similar to the scale of the Doctor Strange sequel. Back in 2019, tickets for Avengers: Endgame went on sale on April 2, three weeks before its worldwide premiere. 

The ticket sales for Multiverse of Madness will go on sale exactly one month before its United States premiere, which is in line with the timeline for Endgame

However, this ticket-selling timeline isn't the same as other MCU movies. For example, tickets for Avengers: Age of Ultron went on sale on March 4, which was almost two months before its May 1 premiere. Tickets for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 were available for purchase on March 25, which was in line with the timeline for Age of Ultron.

By looking closely, it seems that the shorter timeline for ticket selling is assigned to films that have massive stakes on hand, since Endgame and Multiverse of Madness present major ramifications for the MCU. 

Meanwhile, there's a strong chance that more footage for Multiverse of Madness will be unveiled since it's been common for Marvel Studios to promote its tickets with a new TV spot or trailer. 

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set to premiere in theaters on May 6.
