Veteran Hollywood actress Michelle Yeoh’s latest film Everything Everywhere All At Once is finally hitting theaters in India today. The universe-hopping sci-fi fantasy action film is widely regarded as one of the best films of the year. So if you are a fan of stories about the multiverse and parallel universes, we have curated a list of films and TV shows just for you.

Dr Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (Disney+ Hotstar)

Let’s begin with the most popular title on this list, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Helmed by Sam Raimi, the film features Benedict Cumberbatch reprising his role as the former Sorcerer Supreme as he travels between parallel universes to stop the Scarlet Witch from destroying the multiverse.

Rick and Morty (Netflix)

If ever there was an animated program that truly became a pop culture icon, it is Rick and Morty. Created by Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon, this adult animated series is a black comedy satire that follows the universe-hopping adventures of the eccentric scientist Rick and his grandson Morty.

What if…? (Disney+ Hotstar)

Marvel Studios stepped out of its comfort zone in 2021 when it released the animated series What if…?. The anthology series explores ‘what if ‘ scenarios in alternative universes where crucial events from the Marvel Cinematic Universe were slightly alerted. Some of the episodes certainly pushed the boundaries of the fabled MCU formula, with thought-provoking narratives and compelling stories.

The Flash (Amazon Prime Video)

The CW network’s reputation may have taken a hit in recent years after some truly bizarre creative choices when it comes to their DC TV shows. However, there can be no argument that the network did produce quality DC content a few years ago with the first seasons of Arrow and The Flash. While Arrow has concluded its run, The Flash is set to air its ninth and final season next year. And to its credit, The Flash introduced compelling multiverse storylines long before the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (Netflix)

Spider-Man: No Way Home shattered global box-office records in 2021, largely thanks to the film featuring three different Spider-Men from different universes in an entertaining story. But it is not the most critically acclaimed Spider-Man film about multiverses. That particular honour belongs to the 2018 animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The film won an Academy Award for Best Animated film, and it was praised for its unique cel-shading animation and gripping story.

Loki (Disney+ Hotstar)

Tom Hiddleston returned to reprise his role as the God of Mischief in the live-action 2021 series. The Disney+ Original Marvel TV show became an instant hit and featured Lokis from parallel universes who team up to take on a mysterious enemy who threatens to destabilize the multiverse.

The Man in the High Castle (Amazon Prime Video)

Dystopian stories about an alternate reality where the Nazis and the Axis Powers won World War II have always intrigued audiences across the globe. The Man in the High Castle is one such story where the Nazis won World War II, and the world is ruled by a totalitarian regime. The plot revolves around a resistance group who discovers films about an alternate reality where Allied Powers defeated the Nazis. These films become pivotal in strengthening the resistance movement.

Well that's the list of movies and shows that explore the multiverse, until the next episode it's your host Nikhil signing out.
