Fans of Marvel Cinematic Universe were expecting a lot more comeos in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness than they ended up getting, which many have described as a deception given the possibility for surprise guests to feature.
While Tom Cruises Iron Man, Hugh Jackmans Wolverine, Ryan Reynolds Deadpool, the entire Fantastic Four lineup, a smattering of X-Men, Eric Banas Hulk, Nicolas Cages Ghost Rider, and others, the Illuminati went quite awry.
On a visual level, director Sam Raimi delivered one of the most eye-popping scenes to date, demonstrating that the filmmaker was given a level of creative freedom he was not given on his last superhero blockbuster, when Sony effectively eliminated Venom.
With that in mind, a staunch Raimi defender has taken to social media and reprimanded the hypocrites who found themselves dissatisfied with Doctor Strange 2 only with half a dozen major features, flipping the Spider-Man 3 script on its head.
Why did they impose Sam Raimi to add Venom to "Spider-Man 3"? It ruined the film!Also fanboys: Why didn''t they impose Sam Raimi to add Deadpool, Wolverine, Iron Man, Spider-Man, etc. to "Doctor Strange 2"? It ruined the film!
It''s a fair point, with the other side of the divide generating the well-reasoned argument that Cameos: The Movie would have been a sugar rush of fan service that was significant to the area''s broadest, other than a short high of seeing new and familiar faces drop by to exchange a quip or two, but it would not be revealed without explanation and leave the story unfinished.
