A new Doctor Strange film has reportedly been banned by several more countries over the inclusion of an LGBT+ character.

Doctor Strange: Multiverse of Madness sees Benedict Cumberbatch return as Dr Stephen Strange, who has become a cornerstone of the MCU since his introduction in 2016.

The sequel has been massively anticipated by fans, even more so after Strange’s vital role in the acclaimed Spider-Man: No Way Home.

But Marvel fans in multiple countries are set to miss out after the film was banned for featuring a character from the LGBT+ community.
Reports emerged this week that Saudi Arabia had banned the film, with sources close to decision-makers saying the introduction of a gay character contributed to the move.

Kuwait and Qatar have since reportedly followed suit, and Imax Egypt has now confirmed they will not be showing the film, which is set to be released in May.

I Call Bull: Absolute bull that in this day and age films are still being banned because they depict gay relationships and/or characters.
These "backward" thinking cultures really are a stain on society as a whole aren't they.

Just pushing it underground where I'm sure the pirating business will do very well
