'Doctor Strange 2' Will Be the MCU's First Real Horror Movie

'Doctor Strange 2' Will Be the MCU's First Real Horror Movie



It's a bit shocking given this is the Marvel Cinematic Universe we're talking about. The stories—as exciting, epic and powerful as they are—do have the grandiose, splendor, humor and positivism we all love about superheroes. We hardly see the terror in the eyes of a victim suffering from nightmares and demons, or the weird things that go bump in the night.

That's largely due to the fact that the stories often are told from the perspectives of those heroes! When you think about it, this does make perfect sense as aliens from the sky would be pretty terrifying, and you'd think lots of humans would have major nightmares from all of it. We don't see that side of the story. We see the explosions, the fight scenes, the clever one-liners, and so much more.

The sequel's being billed as the studio's first real horror film. With the title, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, we're getting a sense of some Clive Barker, psychological horror, Jacob's Ladder stuff. And to make it even more interesting, Wanda Maximoff AKA Scarlet Witch will also be in the film.

So this isn't very novel at first glance when you think about it. Yet we're going from Avengers-style sex appeal in Scarlet Witch and debonair mystic arts of Infinity War spectacle in Doctor Strange—to true character studies of the fiercely mortifying kind, stripping these characters down to what makes their skin crawl the most.

There's currently no synopsis for this Doctor Strange sequel, however. But we can certainly make educated guesses that it all hinges on the madness that is the Scarlet Witch. And Strange must somehow solve it. We're digging that angle.

Again, though, Marvel—and even DC (and perhaps one more brand you might recognize)—gets their fair share of horror tropes, starting with...

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
