Wow, has it really been that long since we’ve dusted off the glasses? One moment you’re reviewing how well 3D worked for Spider-Man: No Way Home, and before you know it, it’s time to dive back into the Marvel 3D well. After all of the hype and waiting that’s led us to the release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, it’s finally time to step back into the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s big screen component. Which means that it’s also time to add another entry into our To 3D Or Not To 3D archive, thanks to the good doctor himself.
If you’re looking for spoiler-free commentary on how director Sam Raimi’s return to the world of comic adaptations fares as a movie experience, you can find that in our own Eric Eisenberg’s official review. Consider it another branch to the multiverse that is discussing the full Doctor Strange 2 experience. Here and now, we’re going to slip on our 3D glasses, and talk out whether Benedict Cumberbatch’s next solo chapter is worth the extra money, or if you should save it for some Pizza Poppa’s Pizza Balls on the way home.
Putting aside the business practice of regularly releasing comic films in 3D for a profit boost, the visuals on display in the trailers for Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness definitely suggest a potentially eye-popping time at the movies. The precedent for that notion goes further back as well, since 2016’s Doctor Strange used 3D to an impressive extent. Not only is this movie absolutely fit for 3D, it shows that Sam Raimi was born to make 3D movies
