Disney+ Announces Doctor Strange 2 Release Date (But Is It Real?)

When will Doctor Strange 2 ACTUALLY premiere on Disney+?
Disney’s exclusive theatrical window for its film is 45 days, leading fans to believe the film will be released on Disney+ on that schedule. However, this was not the case for Shang Chi and eternal.
Shang Chi premiered in US theaters on September 3, 2021 and was eventually released on the streaming service on November 12, 2021 on Disney+ Day. The gap between those two dates is 70 days, 10 full weeks after its exclusive theatrical release.
The trend continued with eternal. Directed by Chloé Zhao, the film began its theatrical run on November 5, 2021, and then arrived on Disney+ on January 12, almost 10 weeks (68 days) after its theatrical release.

Additionally, the Disney+ premiere date is the Doctor Strange The sequel is about to hit theaters. although Multiverse of Madness Having just suffered a huge slump at the box office just into its second weekend, it’s safe to say the film still has legs to try and surpass the $1 billion mark in the coming weeks.
