Not even Stephen Strange himself could tell you while Doctor Strange 2 is coming to Disney Plus — as Disney is cagey approximately its MCU film release dates. But we’ve got thumbed thru the 14,000,0065 potential realities that the best doctor noticed in Avengers: Infinity War and come returned with two probable consequences.
That’s the awful news: we live in a timeline with a loss of actuality — and in a put up-Black Widow reality, it seems like we’re going to never get a movie on Disney Plus the same day it hits theaters ever again. The excellent information? Well, the present day we assume the imminent Marvel movie will hit streaming is proper around while Thor: Love and Thunder arrives in theaters, so do not pass questioning you may be able to ward off spoilers till August.
There are two feasible Doctor Strange 2 Disney Plus dates we have got circled: Monday, June 20 and Thursday, July 14. Both seem viable, and we will smash down why that is the case underneath.Why Doctor Strange 2’s Disney Plus release date will be June 20

Remember last summer season, when Black Widow got here out and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings become within the close to future? We saved questioning if Shang-Chi might get the identical Disney Plus Premier Access remedy that Natasha Romanov’s swan music did, best for Scarlett Johansson to sue Disney over breach of settlement for this on line launch. That incident is seem as the stop of the road for day-1 releases, and we’d soon listen Disney CEO Bob Chapek declare that Shang-Chi had a 45-day theatrical exclusivity window, which he referred to as “an interesting test.”
Chapek’s phrases have been used as gasoline for the hearth to ship audiences to the theaters, as Simu Liu, Shang-Chi himself, tweeted “We aren’t an test. We are the underdog; the underestimated. We are the ceiling-breakers. We are the birthday party of lifestyle and pleasure with a purpose to persevere after an embattled year. We are the wonder. I’m fired the f**k as much as make records…”
I go through all of this recent history to say this is why I accept as true with June 20 is a ability Doctor Strange 2 Disney Plus launch date. June 20 is forty five days after the movie’s May 6 release. This is what you’ll call a exceptional-case state of affairs.
But is it the likeliest? Why Doctor Strange 2’s Disney Plus release date may be July 14

Disney, to date, has regarded in no rush to get its films to streaming. Quite the opposite, truly. Both Eternals (68 days) and Shang-Chi (70 days) took additional weeks to reach on Disney Plus.
Until Disney Plus has a Netflix-sized subscribers trouble, the corporation likely would not see a want to make its movies more reachable. Instead, the movies can live at theaters, and promote tickets alongside the manner.
So we break up the difference among the ones two incredibly similar launch windows, and say that the today’s we count on Doctor Strange 2 on Disney Plus is 69 days after May 6, aka July sixteen.
I could name this the worst case state of affairs, as it’s the furthest-out date on my calendar. But even inside Marvel movies, there is a worse example.The actual worst case scenario for Doctor Strange 2 arriving on Disney Plus
Imagine the timeline where Doctor Strange 2 is a Sony & Marvel collaboration movie, and you’ll see the worst viable final results. Sony’s Spider-Man: No Way Home isn’t always even on a streaming carrier yet, and it took 118 days for that film to attain virtual video on demand services.
I don’t suppose Disney and Marvel will wait this lengthy, due to the fact Doctor Strange 2 is not genuinely at the identical stage as No Way Home. That movie turned into the end result of not one however three variations of Spider-Man movies. If, however, Doctor Strange 2 has the type of global-shaking ramifications we’ve grown to assume it could — the MCU debut of Professor X indicates this will be where we in the end see the X-Men in a Disney Marvel film — Doctor Strange 2 may want to spend even extra time in theaters. That stated, that is extraordinarily not likely, whilst BoxOfficePro is projecting a excessive of $210 million, and No Way Home hit $260.1M.
More importantly, Sony’s put off is possibly because it doesn’t have a streaming service of its personal to reinforce with No Way Home — which heads to Starz first. The film could visit Disney Plus after that, however not anything’s been showed.
So, thank your Sorcerers Supreme that Doctor Strange 2 isn’t always a Sony movie. And pass your arms it arrives in June and not July.
Also, we’ve got were given the Doctor Strange 2 publish-credit score scenes info in spoiler-unfastened and spoiler-complete variations.
