According to Comic Book Resources(CBR), on April 29th, Chinese box office analyst and reporter Oliver Chen confirmed that the long-awaited Doctor Strange sequel has been officially banned in China.

No official reason has been provided. However, according to CBR, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness drew some heavy criticism from pro-Chinese Communist Party (CCP) social media users in China. One of the scenes posted online included brief snapshots of the news box for The Epoch Times, an independent media that publishes uncensored news from China. However, it is unknown if this led to the ban, as the film has yet to be released.
