Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is the 28th film in the MCU, and another impressive addition to the narrative of the larger universe. While most of the movies can be watched on their own, this one has some stronger ties to past projects. In my opinion, essential viewing before this one is WandaVision, with Spider-Man: No Way Home and the first Doctor Strange movie very helpful to understanding many of the references.
