To talk about the great cultural differences in the world, I believe that everyone can probably hear some jokes made because of different cultures, but this time the cultural differences can be truly reflected in “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness”.
When it comes to Italy, in addition to pasta, the first thing that comes to mind must be the gestures that Italians like to make. There was even a joke that if you tied an Italian, he would become dumb.
Gesture culture runs through Italian life. They like to make various gestures while talking. However, because of this, the poster of “Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness” caused a misunderstanding in Italy.
According to foreign reports, in the latest poster released by Marvel, Doctor Strange poses a classic spell-casting gesture.
However, this has caused dissatisfaction among Italian officials and fans, who pointed out that the gesture of extending the thumb, index finger, pinky, and retracting the middle and ring fingers is offensive in Italy.
In Italian gesture culture, this gesture signifies that the other half of the couple is having an affair.
Therefore, the gesture of the Doctor made the Italians dissatisfied, and for this reason, Marvel officially remade a special Italian version of the poster overnight to eliminate misunderstandings.
