So far, the fans are quite mixed but we'd expect many more reactions in the coming days.
One thing they seem to be able to agree on is the performance of Wanda star Elizabeth Olsen and a fan went as far to argue she "carried the movie".
To the people who are calling this film "Scarlet Witch Multiverse of Madness" I only have a few words for you people.— IsThisOkay? (@IsThisOkay2) May 4, 2022
You are right. She literally carried the movie. Strange, America Chavez and Christine were great too. #DrStrange #DrStrangeMultiverseOfMadness pic.twitter.com/fclGYbQSZz
Clearly, some were less than impressed with the rest of the film, calling it "Dr. Strange In The Multiverse Of Blandness"

Dr Strange: Multiverse of Madness was a little underwhelming. 🙈
Not taking anything away from the brilliance of the cast, they were awesome #DrStrangeMultiverseOfMadness #MultiverseOfMadness #DrStrange #MCU #Marvel
However, Mark disagreed, writing: "Yeah I’m gonna need you to chill #Marvel what was THAT??
"#DrStrange was outstanding".
The Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is in cinemas now.
