Final thoughts on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (since that f*cking movie finally came out on digital):
Wanda and Peggy dying within the same 126 minutes was the only good thing about this movie.
You can keep pushing Dad!Strange till you're blue in the face, Marvel, it won't work. Strange is still an egotistical dickhead who made as much sense as a father figure to America in this movie as he did as a father figure to Peter in No Way Home, which is to say, none.
The only reason Strange even appears to be at all a father figure to America is because every other character is shown willing to kill America or let her die. I shouldn't have had hope when the ending of Doctor Strange itself took Mordo, a character with an otherwise understandable arc, and gave him a rushed villain arc by having him take away Jonathan Pangborn's magic (the ableism in that is so fucking horrifying as it is that that alone makes it a bad choice). And of course this movie shows an alternate version of Mordo (838 Mordo) who is also a villain. Classic. And Wong, the only ally Strange really has, is also shown willing to suggest that Strange should take America's power even if it kills her in this movie. It shows that Marvel is so desperate to prove Strange is a good guy that they'll neuter the characterizations of other characters or villainize other characters just to make Strange look better, which is especially sickening when it comes to Wong and Mordo, both characters of color.
The only character other than Strange who is redeemed is 838 Christine, who is also initially willing to lock America and Strange in cages and have the Illuminati pronounce judgment on them, but changes her mind and helps when Wanda comes to attack. At least this version isn't left a damsel in distress, but her association with the Baxter Foundation and by association the Illuminati also makes it so she gets a redemption arc, tied to Strange without being allowed to be a hero in her own right, especially weird because this is a Multiversal expert, not a human with no knowledge of the threats she's up against. She's also made the expository device to tell us the MCU is now arrogant enough to declare their main timeline Earth-616, because that's something they're doing now. The hell with that - the MCU is Earth-199999, and that's being generous, because it really should be called "Disneyfied hell". Also, I don't even care much about 838 Christine, my main point was that I'm tired of the way white characters are prioritized over everyone else in the MCU, and 838 Christine getting a redemption arc instead of, say, Wong finally getting the due respect he deserves as Sorcerer Supreme doesn't help.
About Wong - again, did I mention he's the Sorcerer Supreme now and Strange is shown not even honoring his traditional sensibilities by bowing in his presence until the very end of the film? Like, Wong could've had an entire fleshed-out arc as Sorcerer Supreme, hell, this movie alone could've made up at least somewhat for the way the MCU basically treated that as an afterthought, but no.
America is made out to be, as someone rightly said, a "tween damsel in distress". Just, given the disrespect towards characters of color the Doctor Strange franchise has already shown, the reduction of America's extensive powerset that makes her one of the most powerful superheroes in the universe to just Multiversal travel which she can't control is beyond insulting. A 12-second clip of her moms is also the only time the movie refers to queerness in relation to America, making it reminiscent of one of those moments from movies or shows where the only mention of queerness in relation to a teenage character happens to be in relation to an older relative, typically a parent, who happens to be queer, and the character themselves has their queerness or non-queerness left up in the air. There was also no particular reason for her to connect with Strange, because again, if you have to try so hard to make Strange out to be a good guy that you have to have his redemption be in becoming a grumpy sort-of dad to teenage characters, maybe he just sucks. It wouldn't exactly have helped with the lightwashing problem if Isabela Merced had played America in No Way Home as concept art indicated was the route the MCU was planning to take, and a teenager as young as Xochitl Gomez getting a role in a major franchise is proof that even the MCU is willing to cast actual teenagers as teenage characters, but at least Merced's version might have been 16 or 17 rather than 13 (which was an unnecessary aging-down as it is), and might've actually had a role to play beyond needing to be saved by Strange and becoming another student at Kamar-Taj.
Also, Lashana Lynch's Captain Marvel deserved her own movie rather than the monumentally stupid arc given to her in this damn movie. Like, the costume is better than Carol's costume ever was, she's a supremely powerful being, powerful enough to be a member of the Illuminati, and yet she, like every other member, is murdered within minutes by Wanda. That whole scene was stupid, but the worst part was pretending that Wanda wouldn't get one hell of a fight from Maria and come near to losing.
Strange has no arc and it's painfully obvious. The only thing left is to demonstrate, once and for all, that like the alternate versions of him, Strange is a gambler who gambles with human lives with the same careless disregard that Stark showed in disposing of them. Yeah, the only real difference between Strange and Stark is that Doctor Stephen Strange might not willingly take a life, but gambling with the fate of the universe with a trillion lives at stake is habitual for him. That's exactly what the villainous Strange Supreme did, that's exactly what main timeline Strange does, and that is who Strange is. It was obvious way back in the first movie when Strange was willing to do freehand surgery on a patient despite everyone around him telling him to not be a callous showoff and act like an adult for once. He's a gambler, and that's, functionally speaking, dangerous enough for the lives of the people around him that he should probably stop doing it, but that's just who he is.
John Krasinski as Reed Richards proves that maybe fancasts shouldn't always be taken seriously, not that the MCU would've necessarily had any better ideas. Like other posts have already pointed out, Krasinski's shtick is goofy, and Reed is not goofy (the godawful 2000s Fantastic Four movies proved that already, but let's keep making the same mistakes over and over again - why the hell not). Reed is an asshole who never stops talking about how smart he is, and as such is perfectly representative of the Illuminati as a whole, who think they know better how to govern other people's lives than those people themselves do. And it is not "feminist" to have Lashana Lynch's Captain Marvel in the Illuminati or even Peggy Carter, especially since the Illuminati is predominantly male for a reason - because it's about oversmart men making terrible decisions that hurt everyone else. Maybe they should've just stuck to that, instead of inserting more questionable corporate feminist politics into it, and they should probably have given Lashana Lynch the opportunity to play the real Captain Marvel in the main universe back when Captain Marvel was being planned, but of course not.
I do not like Charles Xavier as a character, but he wouldn't have been so easily dispatched by Wanda. There's no way in hell. The problem with Xavier is the opposite - he's usually too powerful for any threat to really pose a danger to the X-Men, and that's exactly why he's in the Illuminati.
This movie was such a soulless, empty, overlong slog that I wouldn't be surprised if this ends up being talked about as an example of one of the MCU's "rare" bad movies even by MCU stans. Like, this movie was terrible. And to think the entire plot of this movie is yet another example that the MCU will only overtly treat a white female character as a villain or disposable character if their plot is linked to their inability to be a mother is just fucking disgusting. Like, Wanda is only overtly called a monster and a villain in this fucking movie when she's going around trying to force her motherhood into existence. Not when she volunteered for a fucking Nazi organization. Not when she enslaved a fucking town. Only when her plot is couched in terms of motherhood and her inability to attain it. Natasha was also fucking killed off because Clint had a family and she didn't. Like, for fuck's sake, for once, just once, let a female character have emotions without letting that be the reason she's called a villain, even if she was already a villain before. Like, you're prioritising men having emotions because of the dangerous patriarchal message that men can't be vulnerable, but you're ignoring the fact that women are also not allowed to have emotions without it being valid. Stark and other men are at least shown having to learn how to communicate even if they don't actually go to therapy, but not a single woman is shown ever properly grieving or talking about her grief. Monica's grief never gets any consideration in fucking WandaVision because somehow her far more intense trauma and grief is not treated with proportionate importance and Wanda fucking enslaving an entire town as a coping mechanism is given disproportionate importance. Let a female character go to therapy, or at least be allowed to talk openly. Not Wanda, I'm more than happy she died, but the pattern you're perpetuating isn't fucking helping.
Black Bolt should've gotten a way better arc after the shitshow that was Inhumans. Did I mention the ableism in this franchise already, because that's just the fucking worst.

Upon a second rewatch of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, I could appreciate the acting more (as not too focused on the plot upon rewatch) especially from Benedict Cumberbatch
Some details I missed before:
-When 838 Mordo described about Dreamwalking, the candles in the Sanctum started to go off one by one which gave eerie atmosphere more.
-Black Bolt looked apologetic when Stephen looked at him after Xavier showed him how 838 Stephen died. Great acting by Anson Mount despite a very brief cameo
-Reed Richard was quite compassionate toward Stephen. So was Xavier which was clear on the first watch . Please bring them to MCU
-The one giving numbers to universes is 838 Christine 😁
-Upon reading subtitles, just realised most the souls of the damned talking to Stephen were females
-Stephen was supposed to be hurt pretty badly by the Scarlett Witch when she attacked him while possessing the Dead Strange (more fodder for whump fanfic writers)
-Wong was worried about Stephen after possessing dead Strange. He was also concerned that Stephen attended Christine's wedding. Those subtleties show that they're good friends now.
Might write some when I recall some more

He just looks so fantastic.
(Can't express how flabbergasted I was when my mans appeared in the movie. We really bullied this man Jim Halpert into playing Mister Fantastic. And I'm all here for it. He looks so damn cool.)

Okay but even after all that our unbelievably powerful, gorgeous, and possibly slightly crazy cinnamon roll still has my heart 🙃
