Manga creators do not remain confined to their field and are interested in the seventh art. This is particularly the case of Gege Akutami, the man behind the phenomenal Jujutsu Kaisen. Like many movie buffs, the bestselling author has had time to venture into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The Marvel work that caught his eye is, of course, the studio’s latest big hit, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness.
And here is what the mangaka of Jujutsu Kaisen has to say about it.
The success of Doctor Strange 2
It’s been a few days now since Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness debuted in theaters. And it didn’t take long for the MCU’s latest creation to be a hit. This second part of the adventures of Doctor Strange has undeniably conquered the public and it is the same for Gege Akutami who is full of praise.
The latter notably expressed his admiration for the director of the film Sam Raimi in a commentary while mentioning the film. Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness isn’t done touring the planet yet. It will most certainly still be screened in cinemas and in view of the success of phase 4, we can expect some nice surprises with future MCU productions.
