“Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” brings back Benedict Cumberbatch as the title character, as he goes on a new adventure jumping through various realities thanks to the help of newcomer America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez). Why is he on a quest through the multiverse? Well, he’s trying to save his young friend from the clutches of an evildoer who has nefarious plans for America’s multiversal powers.
