No, but currently DDD doesn’t have this trigger on the list, so I’ll put a warning here: there is a brief scene where an illusion is placed. A character falls for it but eventually sees through the charade and the illusion is also stripped away.

Not specifically/prolonged, but could have similar imagery [spoiler] as Billy & Tommy are frightened of Wanda who shouts/is seen fighting America in front of them at the end of the film. This is minor & Wanda quickly changes from this, but could be seen in this similar vein.

During the beginning, battle scene, during Christine’s wedding, Strange mutates the big monster’s eye VERY graphically. The blood gushing, and the eye socket is shown separately from the body, and everything. For a CGI monster, it was egregiously graphic.

More brutal than any prior MCU movie but nothing on the level of Deadpool or Daredevil. A giant monster has its eye torn out of its head. A character’s head pops, another character is sliced in half but this is mostly obscured, only their reaction is seen.

During a flashback, America revisits her first time using her powers, when she accidentally sent her parents off to some other universe, in which she believes to have killed them. Later on, when dealing with the Illuminati, Richard Reed confronts Wanda and claims to have children too, and tells her that he understands her, which leads Wanda to ask if his kids’ mother is still alive, after Reed replies yes, she says “Good. At least they’ll still have someone else to raise them”, before she rips Reed apart and kills him.

Repeats throughout the movie & is a main theme. [Spoiler] Wanda possesses alternate versions of herself to chase down Strange & co. Strange also possesses his corpse in a different universe (zombie-type effect). A lot of these include unnatural/uncanny movement, scenes of the possession taking place/ending & is frequent throughout the movie.

As well as above discussion of vomit/spitting, there is a minor moment of spit where [redacted for spoiler] spits during a fight scene in a fleeting moment. This is a quick moment & after Wanda asks her something to the effect of “aren’t you tired of this?” (can’t remember exact wording sorry)

[SPOILER](copied from someone else) A character commits suicide to ensure no one can access something again- it is worth noting this character has been struggling with mental health throughout the film, and I found this ending to be very disturbing.

The entire movie is about jumping between alternate realities, which sometimes involves the characters' bodies being briefly made of different material. The characters also spend some time in the Mirror Dimension, which allows them to physically move, distort, duplicate, etc. everything around them. Lastly, there's a scene where Wanda takes the place of herself in another universe; a photo of her moves so she's always facing the camera as it passes by, then Wanda makes direct eye contact with the camera for a 4th wall break. It's all really trippy (moreso than the 1st movie), but still only triggers mild depersonalization-derealization for me.

This doesn’t explicitly count, but not sure where else to put this - at the end, there is a moment where Strange is overwhelmed by the sounds & sights of the city in a manner that resembled sensory overload (clutches his head/seems overwhelmed as things are dizzy & sounds are blurry) - this could also mirror panic attacks but it is a pretty minor scene.

Might not be 100%, but while there were flashing lights/strobe effects, these mostly came from the magic & powers rather than a scene like in Spider-man: No Way Home or Incredibles 2 where the entire scene was flashing. Might be misremembering but as someone with light sensitivity, this surprisingly was an okay one.

There is no miscarriage or pregnancy in the film, but FYI for anyone dealing with trauma related to infertility, this film does play into the trope of demonising childless women. Wanda is tormented and desperate because she cannot have a family - the children she wants only exist in alternate universes in the multiverse. Her desperation drives her to do horrible things.

No but I'd argue there's lesbian erasure, America Chavez is a lesbian in the comics but her sexuality is only barely hinted at through minor design details with the only queer scene being like 10 seconds of her two moms. It feels like they kept the parents lesbian but not America because they could easily cut the former's scene from some releases (they ultimately didn't, though). A few people find Wanda problematic for being both mentally ill and violent as well as being whitewashed from the original comic character who was Jewish and Romani.

Yes - majority is CGI, but like the other comment says, is probably the most explicitly gory in the MCU so far. [Spoiler for specific moments] Early in the film Strange has a bloody leg wound which the camera lingers on for a few seconds. While CGI, the monster in the New York fight is stabbed through the eye in a quite gruesome way. Many deaths/corpses shown throughout the fighting with some blood. Blood shown on Wanda in a similar way to Carrie from the horror film (mostly dried/in her hair and covering some of her face). Doctor Strange’s corpse/zombie reanimated might be seen as gory to some as well.
