Marvel Studios changed a poster for Doctor Strange in Multiverse of Madness which was released in Italy, as it contained a gesture that is considered by many in the country offensive.

Shared on Reddit, a poster for the upcoming film showed Benedict Cumberbatch’s Master of the Mystic Arts flashing a gesture known to some as a rock and roll symbol. However, for others, it is known as “the horns”, which can have many different meanings depending on the country or region. In Italy and other Mediterranean countries, the gesture, with the fingers pointing down and not at another person, is used to ward off bad luck or the “evil eye”.

However, when it is pointing upwards (as in the poster) or aggressively at another person, it is considered offensive to call someone a “collar”. Marvel Studios edited the Italian poster so that Doctor Strange would give a sign of peace.

Multiverse of Madness completed extensive reruns in January 2021 with additional material edited by director Sam Raimi and Loki author Michael Waldron. Raimi took over the direction from Scott Derrickson, who directed the first film and left the sequel due to creative differences. After its success Spider-Man: No Way Homeit was reported that Multiverse of Madness would have fun “more with the multiverse”, with reruns for the film involving even more cameos and character introductions than originally anticipated.

Cumberbatch commented on the scale of the production, saying he was not entirely sure if the sequel was really “his” film. “There are a lot of things happening in this,” he said. “It’s like, do I have a character arc in it? Does it work? No, there are great things to do. It’s very busy. It’s called The Multiverse of Madnessand it’s scary. “

The first trailer for Multiverse of Madness teased everything that MCU Phase 4 has gone through, portraying not only a possible team between Doctor Strange, Wanda Maximoff / Scarlet Witch and Wong, but also the US Chavez / Miss America (Xochitl Gomez) MCU debut. Multiverse of Madness he will not get it only after his events Spider-Man: No Way Home but will link directly to two of Marvel’s Disney + series, WandaVision and Lokiboth of which dealt extensively with the multiverse.
