Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness has crossed the $500 million mark (Rs 3878 crore ) at the global box office, even as it nears the Rs 100 crore mark in India.

The film also features cameos from John Krasinski, Patrick Stewart, Haley Atwell, Charlize Theron, Lashana Lynch, among others.

The Indian Express film critic Shalini Langer gave the film a mixed review. She wrote, “You may go universe to universe, forwards and backwards, to the 838th version of Doctor Strange or the 613th one (the two specifically identified here), one thing remains constant. Everywhere you go, Marvel will follow you. It may be the Multiverse of Madness (which it is), but it is above all the Multiverse of Marvel. Space continuum will only take you from one character to another, as many as you can cram into two hours of movie time.”
