Marvel has restricted a poster for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness that was released in Italy for an entirely unexpected cause. On May 6th, the forthcoming Benedict Cumberbatch starrer will be released in theatres. In several countries, booking for the event has already begun, and it has already surpassed the 2022 advanced ticket sales record.
Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is slated to provide another multiversal adventure directed by Sam Raimi, following the huge success of Spider-Man: No Way Home. Cumberbatch’s character will delve deeper into known and unknown dimensions as he explores the dangers of deadly magic.
As we come closer to the release date, the hype for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness grows. In Italy, though, a poster for the Benedict Cumberbatch movie had to be censored by Marvel. According to a Reddit user, the poster depicts Doctor Strange doing a hand gesture that is known as the rock and roll symbol.
In Italy and other Mediterranean countries, however, the same gesture has a completely different meaning. The symbol in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness poster, called “the horns,” is an unpleasant or nasty manner of calling someone a “c*ckold,” according to the user. This is why Marvel agreed to change the Benedict Cumberbatch starrer’s poster in the country.
This is an amusing hiccup! Meanwhile, the film made headlines once its running duration was revealed. The movie is 126 minutes long, which translates to 2 hours and 6 minutes. Even with the several cameos, it has promised, it is crisp.
Elizabeth Olsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong, Xochitl Gomez, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Rachel McAdams star alongside Benedict Cumberbatch in Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. There are also rumors of several other cameos, including Tom Cruise’s Iron Man. Keep an eye on our website for more!
