Doctor Strange introduces Marvel fans to a whole different cosmic side to the universe, and it will take us to new dimensions. If you saw the trailer from the Comic Con you know what they are talking about, trailer was awesome and Benedict looks well placed in the role, Check out the trailer here.
Director Scott Derrickson recently talked to ComicBook.com about the film and said it will take Marvel to the weirdest place yet.
“I think that the short answer is this is the movie where Marvel goes full weird. That full weirdness is written in the Ditko images, the Jack Kirby images, the early Doctor Strange comic book panels that are still to this day so mind blowing.”
He went on to talk about the inspiration of the comics and what they bring to the film, saying:
“What the comics did was, they brought with Doctor Strange an extra dimension into psychadelia, mysticism, and spirituality and all these very 60’s things and broke open the Marvel comic book universe into the Marvel multiverse. I think Doctor Strange is going to be the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse. It’s really serving the same function that the comic did. Even though it was a weird aberration as a comic book, I think it was a real linchpin in the comics. It ended up being decades of new stories and I think this movie will do the same thing.”
The film stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange, Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer, Benedict Wong as Wong, and Mads Mikkelsen will be playing the villain Kaecilius.
Marvel’s Doctor Strange will hit theaters on November 4th, 2016.
