Doctor Strange in the Madness multiverse

Benedict Cumberbatch puts on the Doctor Strange costume once again and pushes the limits of the Multiverse.

D.n this new installment from Marvel Studios, the Marvel Cinematic Universe unlocks and pushes the boundaries of the Multiverse even further. Doctor Strange, his mystical allies old and new, traverse the shocking and dangerous realities of the multiverse to face a mysterious new adversary.

It first appeared in July 1963 in issue 110 of the magazine Strange tales, Doctor Strange was created by cartoonist Steve Ditko and screenwriter Stan Lee. It took 53 years for the Master of the Mystical Arts to retain his place as a superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the release of Doctor Strange in 2016.

Originally, Scott Derrickson, the director of Strange Doctorhad to stage Doctor Strange in the multiverse of madness. But, due to creative differences with the studio, he eventually gave way to Sam Raimi.

The director is familiar with superhero movies, as we owe him the trilogy Spiderman led by Tobey Maguire (who reprized his role in Spider-Man: There is no way to go home). He also directed the relatively unknown Darkman in 1990, with Liam Neeson in the title role. It is a character created by the director, the latter not having, at the time, sufficient experience with the majors to be able to adapt an already established superhero. It was the fact that Kevin Feige wanted to bring a touch of horror to Doctor Strange for this second work that motivated Sam Raimi to accept the position of director. He explains : ” For me horror and suspense are the funniest thing in cinema! What fascinates me most about Doctor Strange’s character is that he is a wizard. I myself was in my youth, for children’s parties or weddings. I loved creating illusions. A superhero who is an illusionist and a magician is of particular interest to me. In terms of cinematic references and sources of inspiration, particularly in terms of action scenes and horrific sequence design, Sam Raimi cites Raiders of the Lost Ark (nineteen eighty-one), Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984), Poltergeist (1982) and Gremlin (1984).

MB14

Antoine, a young suburban Parisian, studies accounting without much conviction, dividing his time between the rap battles he practices with talent and his job as a sushi delivery boy. During a trip to the Opéra Garnier, his path crosses that of Madame Loyseau, a singing teacher in the venerable institution, who detects in Antoine a raw talent to harbor.

Despite his lack of lyrical culture, Antoine was fascinated by this form of expression and was persuaded to follow the teaching of Mme Loyseau. Antoine has no choice but to lie to his family, his friends and the whole city that opera is a bourgeois thing, far from their world.

The main male role is held by Mohamed Belkhir alias MB14. This rapper takes his first steps in cinema with Tenor. He is seeing it inside The voice, which the director and producer noticed. They made him pass tests that proved conclusive. The film mixes the medium of rap with that of the opera for a rendering that moves thanks to the vocal performance of MB14.
