Will Doctor Strange 2 be on Disney + for free?

Doctor Strange 2 will be available to stream on Disney+ for free for those who are Disney+ members who pay either £6.39 ($8/) a month or £63.91 ($80/) a year WITHOUT paying any extra. 

So although it won’t be completely free of charge, Disney+ subscribers won’t face added costs on top of their subscription for watching the movie. If you’ve not got Disney+ you could always see if friends and family have the subscription and don’t mind watching it with you and plan your own movie night together.

How to watch Dr Strange: Multiverse of Madness

You can watch Dr Strange: Multiverse of Madness in a variety of ways – firstly on June 22 the movie will be available to stream on Disney+ and the movie is also expected to be available to rent or buy through VOD retailers on or around that date.

And if you’ve not watched the first movie yet, or want to refresh on the storyline, then you can rent the movie on the following platforms: Apple iTunes, Amazon Videos or Google Play Movies.

Will every Marvel movie be on Disney+?

Not all Marvel movies will be available to watch on Disney+ as several movies outside the MCU that feature Marvel characters are not on Disney+ including The Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Spider-Man: Far From Home, and Spider-Man: No Way Home. The reason why not all Marvel movies are on Disney+ is because the streaming giant doesn’t have distribution rights to every Marvel title. There are around 58 movies missing from Disney+.

But as with any show, if you want to watch those that are on there you have to be quick as streaming services like Netflix confirmed that many of its Marvel shows including Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist are leaving the streaming service.

Disney+ has some upcoming Marvel Studios movies coming to its streaming platform soon including Ms. Marvel…

So, be sure to sign up for a Disney+ membership (opens in new tab) if you want to watch at home.
