Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is an American superhero film distributed by Marvel Studios and the sequel to Doctor Strange. It has started releasing in theaters somewhere in the world on May 4, 2022, eventually releasing in North America on May 6. Due to featuring a lesbian character in the comics the film was deemed unsuitable for public exhibition in Saudi Arabia and three other Middle Eastern countries.
It is the first Marvel Cinematic Universe production that has a significant horror aspect, as director Sam Raimi specializes on horror.
- It is unlikely if Chinese censors would allow a release in China due to its anti-Chinese government element.
Middle Eastern censorship
- The film was banned in Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Kuwait, and Qatar because it features an LGBT character from the comics (America Chavez, portrayed by Xochitl Gomez). An excision was recommended by the Saudi Arabian government to remove a lesbian reference, but the distributor refused. However, in the United Arab Emirates, the film passed the censors with a PG-13 rating.
