For as much praise as Doctor Strange In The Multiverse Of Madness got for Sam Raimi’s directing and such, its existence still leaves a bad taste in my mouth for the complete derailment of the Scarlet Witch character. Wanda is not supposed to be evil, and the comics don’t usually treat her as such, though they usually go for the sexist trope of her powers driving her into insanity and doing self-destructive things. Raimi decided to take the worst interpretation of Wanda possible, ruining over a decade of character development for the sake of shock.

The original AKIRA is regarded as a landmark, not just for Japanese animation but for expanding the medium’s reach. Prior to the Western release of this film, anime very rarely made the journey across the sea, at least officially, and its American audience was extremely small. Once Akira became popular on a global scale, the stage was set for other properties to become international, and today anime is one of the nation’s most popular exports. It’s fortunate that Japan’s present isn’t what this movie predicted it would be.
