The age of social media has become an absolute nightmare for anyone with any kind of active account to avoid major spoilers, with the Marvel Cinematic Universe leading the pack when it comes to projects shrouded in mystery that people can’t wait for. to ruin everyone else. However, in a surprising turn of events, Doctor strange in the multiverse of madness writer Michael Waldron doesn’t seem to care.
In the build-up to Sam Raimi’s wacky blockbuster, the internet was flooded with countless rumours, speculations, gossip, gossip and everything in between, and much of the talk (as usual) turned out to be very wrong.
In an interview with Murphy’s Multiverse, the Loki The creator admitted that he was just like us in the past, so he fully understands why netizens would be out there actively looking for surprises to spoil them.
“I like the idea that it can be mythologized in another way. I have a lot of respect for what you do, for what everybody does, all the fansites, because that was the shit I grew up reading. I’m so son of Upcoming Corona Attractions, Ain’t It Cool News. Those things are probably a big reason I’m a writer. Scoop culture, to a degree, I’m cool, that’s part of it. I think it’s our job… we want to preserve these secrets because it only makes for a better theater experience for the audience. You’re going to get a better pop from the audience if they don’t know what’s coming.
But I think it’s also… if you really spend a lot of time online, you might think that if something goes wrong in one corner of the Internet, suddenly the whole world knows about it. But they don’t. They are the people who are actively looking for that and who want to find those things. And if you want to find out, that means it will probably enhance your enjoyment of the movie.
And people who don’t want to know probably don’t. It’s like, I’d be mad if they headlined the news on CNN about who was in the Illuminati, but they don’t. there is [a] Spoiler warning and you know where you are going if you go to a spoiler website. It’s like it’s what we do. It’s like the symbiotic nature of these things and it just builds anticipation and excitement. I think it’s cool.”
There you have it, the brains behind the secrets of Doctor strange in the multiverse of madness He has no problem with multiple cats getting out of their respective bags early, even if muting mentions is now a regular part of daily life online.
