A parallel universe or alternate reality is a hypothetical self-contained plane of existence, co-existing with our own. The sum of all possible parallel universes that constitute reality is often called a 'multiverse'. In pop culture, this terminology and stories dealing with it have long been the fancy of audiences and creators alike. This is the reason why over the years there have been several movies and shows made on this subject.

Such is the intrigue surrounding parallel universes that even Marvel, one of the biggest franchises in the world, could not help but have a slice of this inter-dimensional pie. With the inception of Marvel's Phase 4, the company stepped into its next big chapter of storytelling, the multiverse saga which encompasses films, TV series, and TV specials of the MCU that will conclude with the end of Phase Six. However, if you are someone who either finds it too tedious of a task to keep track of all the interconnected Marvel story-lines or just someone who can't seem to get enough on this subject, then here are some movies about parallel realities that you should give a try.

However, he proves to be experiencing something potentially apocalyptic involving time travel, destiny, and the creepiest rabbit suit youíre likely to see in this or any other dimension. †
