10 Upcoming Movies That Aren't What You Think

Superhero movies and hyperbole go hand-in-hand, and when someone involved with one makes a seemingly innocent remark, it inevitably gets blown wildly out of proportion by the collective Internet.

Even before principal photography on Doctor Strange in the Multiverse Of Madness began, various personnel linked to the production referenced it being tonally similar to a horror film.

And so, numerous sites went on to report that the superhero sequel would indeed be the MCU's first straight-up horror film.

This claim spread like wildfire online, such that MCU mega-producer Kevin Feige even had to come out and clarify that it's not a horror film, but rather that it will feature "scary" sequences.

Fans of the first Doctor Strange will recall that it features some of the MCU's more unsettlingly surreal scenes to date, and we can presumably expect an expanded version of that rather than the card-carrying horror vibe some overzealous fans are hoping for.
