The multiverse is everywhere lately: In movies, on television; in Marvel, DC, even Oscar winners. Everywhere you look, one universe is simply not enough anymore.

But can you have too much of a good thing? That’s the subject of our latest Marvel video, which examines the reasons why multiverse movies and shows are so popular right now, and why, despite their popularity, they might actually be harming the Marvel Cinematic Universe. After all, there is so much multiversal content out there right now, people might start to get burned out on it all. And we are still four years away (at least!) from the end of Marvel’s Multiverse Saga. That’s a whole lot of Marvel movies and shows pegged to an idea that some viewers seem to be losing interest in.

We’ll also look at Everything Everywhere All at OnceSpider-Man: No Way Home, What If...?Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of MadnessLoki, and even It’s a Wonderful Life to understand this concept and its appeal. Watch the entire video below:
