1 May - Much to the disappointment of Marvel fans in Brunei, it was recently reported that the Benedict Cumberbatch-starrer "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness" is banned in the country.

The Bruneian authorities did not elaborate more on the reason of the said ban.


It is noted that apart from Brunei, Saudi Arabia and Egypt have earlier banned the film from release in its theatres. The sequel marks the introduction and debut of the character America Chavez (played by Xochitl Gomez), who has been portrayed as gay in the comics.
