Is Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness''s honeymoon a long time already? Given that the 28th installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe surpassed $500 million at the global box office in five days, were inclined to say no, but the Sam Raimis sequel has set a frighteningly bad record for the franchise.
Multiverse of Madness has had its worst Friday-to-Friday drop in the superhero sagas 14-year history, despite the fact that Benedict Cumberbatchs reality-hopping escapade received $17 million from domestic screens yesterday, up by almost 82% compared to the previous Friday.
Black Widow, which fell by 79% in its second season last summer, should be noted, although Scarlett Johanssons was probably a hybrid Disney Plus release, which hampered its commercial prospects.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness will easily win the weekend with a projected haul in the $60-65 million range, which will see it pass $300 million on domestic soil in ten days. At this stage, we know much better than we can bet against the MCU.
The Batman may be passed sooner rather or later, becoming the highest-grossing Hollywood production in 2022.
