What to watch before watching Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness?

The latest feature film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise opens in cinemas on May 6. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the second standalone film starring the master of mystical arts, but it also looks set to incorporate some very unique interactions from within the MCU, and even from outside. That’s because Stephen Strange must deal with a threat that could destroy not only the MCU, but the entire multiverse. Whether you’re a fan of Marvel movies or not, it might be a good idea to check out some key movies and series before you head to the theater to see Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
