The box office collection is still very respectable and Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is still a bonafide hit in the Indian market, but it's not going to come anywhere close to No Way Home, which was released in dying stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, with theatrical restrictions still in place. As for Infinity War and Endgame's collections...well, they're a distant dream at this stage. Doctor Strange 2 has made the necessary initial whack needed to push it into 'clean hit' status, but it's now clear that the content has not been appreciated as much, as was indicative with the early reviews themselves.
Coming to its global numbers, Doctor Strange 2 has brought in $185 million in the US and $265 million from other countries for a collective worldwide cume of $450 million in its opening weekend. That slots the Benedict Cumberbatch and Elizabeth Olsen starrer as the fourth highest opening weekend ever for an MCU film worldwide, behind Avengers: Endgame, Avengers: Infinity War and Spider-Man: No Way Home in that order. If that wasn't enough, then the Marvel movie has also secured the sixth biggest opening weekend worldwide of all time for any film.
