For local fans Kavin and Emmanuel who were amongst the lucky ones to join Friday’s screening said that they have been eagerly waiting for the second Doctor Strange’s film.

“We are really excited for the second film.

“Because we last saw him in Spiderman: No Way Home and we want to see what’s happening because there have been spoilers going around especially on social media,” Kavin told Malay Mail.

In order for them to avoid spoilers, both of them have decided to refrain themselves from using social media, especially Twitter until they’ve watched the film.

Long time magic fan Miharu was excited to see what was in store for the latest Marvel film.

“I’ve always been a fan of on-screen magics and sorceries and I’m so excited for Doctor Strange! Because the hype for the film is amazing, it’s one of the most anticipated movies this year.

“So yes, I’m super excited right now as they’re opening the multiverse because we’re used to seeing only one universe in the MCU and in the comics there are a lot of other universes.
