Director Sam Raimi drags Marvel’s psychedelic sorcerer into bizarre new worlds.

As Earth’s saviour and most powerful mystic, Stephen Strange still senses gaps in his life and dimension - which become more noticeable when universe-jumping teenager America Chavez appears requiring his protection from an aggrieved, familiar enemy. To save his world and myriad others, Strange must grapple with horrors beyond even his experience, and demons closer to home than ever. Having long proved himself with superheroes with Spiderman and demented horror-comedy in the Evil Dead films, Raimi (with the help of Loki/Rick and Morty writer Michael Waldron) has no trouble with the burden of Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, shrugging it off to deliver a twisted, disorienting, and unabashedly wacky adventure through its less grounded avenues, while keeping sight of the proud but lost hero at its centre.
