Marvel Studios is no stranger to leaks, especially after the release of Spider-Man: No Way Home. However, with the latest wave of Doctor Strange 2 leaks, the cinematic behemoth has been forced to hide away from the internet’s wrath.
Marvel responds to Doctor Strange 2 leaks
With Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness rapidly approaching release, fans are excited to see the film without being spoiled beforehand. Unfortunately, as with most major movies, social media is already flooded with spoilers. This includes the movie's ending as well as unconfirmed cameos.
Just like with Spider-Man: No Way Home, Doctor Strange 2 leaks are currently being shared online by bots. Posts mentioning the movie on services like Twitter, Instagram and more. Of course, this means that official Marvel pages are targeted, making it almost impossible to avoid spoilers.
In response, Marvel has made a huge decision to turn off comments on all of its social media pages. Across Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok and more, all comments have been disabled so that bots — and fans — can't spoil anything.
This decision by Marvel shows just how bad Doctor Strange 2 leaks are. Over the franchise’s long history, Marvel has never turned off comments. Even when Spider-Man: No Way Home leaks showed Andrew Garfield’s webhead on set, comments stayed on.
The bigger they are, the harder they leak
As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues to reign as the top entertainment franchise, leakers hyper-target the MCU. Every new film that launches in the MCU is hit by a large number of leaks. After all, everyone’s eyes are on Marvel, and leakers want followers too.
After Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness releases, leakers will move onto Thor: Love and Thunder, and then the next movie. It’s impossible to escape leaks these days, and Marvel leaks are the most preeminent of them all.
