Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has become the best premiere of the year. The Doctor Strange sequel, directed by Sam Raimi and starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen, has grossed an estimated $450 million in its opening weekend worldwide. In this way, it has far surpassed what was the best debut of 2022: The Batman. The Dark Knight movie starring Robert Pattinson made more than 250 million dollars worldwide.
In the United States, the Marvel film has grossed about 185 million dollars in its opening weekend. In Spain, more than 5.5 million euros. With these figures, the film has been ranked second on the list of best releases of the pandemic, only below Spider-Man: No Way Home, which grossed more than 260 million dollars in North America and more than eight million euros in our country.
In Spain, 783,942 viewers have already seen the film about the Marvel sorcerer, and its presence on billboards has accounted for almost 80% of the total box office, which has risen 57% compared to the previous weekend.
In our country, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has starred in the fifth-best opening weekend of a Marvel title. In first place is Avengers: Endgame, in second Spider-Man: No Way Home, in third Avengers: Infinity War, and in fourth Spider-Man 3.
For now, the highest-grossing movie of 2022 is The Batman, which has grossed over $764 million worldwide. However, by the figures of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it seems that the DC vigilante film will be relegated to second place.
Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is set after the events of Spider-Man: No Way Home and the Disney+ series Scarlet Witch and Vision. The Marvel sorcerer must face a new and unexpected threat and the multiverse will be the key to avoiding a great catastrophe.
