If you follow the American movie landscape then you probably know that this weekend the box office has been set on fire by Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. You might also we aware that the last few weeks, we another multiverse movie, Everything Everywhere All at Once, has been making huge waves as well. In fact, there’s been a rash of multiverse focused movies and TV shows lately from Spider-man to Riverdale and beyond. But why? On this week’s episode, Mav, Wayne, and Monica are joined by multiverse author Darby Harn to talk about fictional multiverses. What’s the history of multiverses in other literature? How does the science of the actual many worlds theory connect to the idea of fictional canon and continuity? What makes multiverses so popular in general and why in specific this year? Plus, we give our reviews of both Doc Strange in the Multiverse of Madness and Everything Everywhere All at Once. Join us as we break down the concept of multiverses in this universe and maybe some others and then let us know what you think in the comments below.
