Looking for something fun to do this weekend? Head to the theater and catch Marvel’s latest comic turned film flick, “Doctor Strange”. The movie is now playing in theaters nationwide and I’ve got the scoop to share with you!
Neurosurgeon Dr. Stephan Strange, played by actor Benedict Cumberbatch, introduces audiences to a unique super hero with powerful magical powers and one of a kind skill set. His character bring new and exciting storylines to Marvel’s cinematic universe. “Doctor Strange” introduces us to the supernatural side of Marvel comics.
The movie explores the exciting idea of parallel and alternate dimensions. Our superhero, Dr. Strange, suffers from a horrific car accident where he loses the use of his own hands. Strange turns to non-traditional medicine for healing powers and, in return, acquires magical powers. He is forced to decide between returning to his old life of fortune and status or leave it behind and defend the universe as a powerful sorcerer.
What can audiences expect when they watch Marvel’s “Doctor Strange”?
Producer Kevin Feige gives some insight: “This is a mind-trip that rivals any cinema c mind-trip that has ever been done before. Steve Ditko is one of the greatest Marvel ar sts in history, and it’s amazing that we’re now able to take what he did in the mid-’60s—these trippy comic panels and comic covers—and put those into big three-dimensional space on a movie screen. What it really does is give a “Matrix”/”Incep on”/Miyazaki–style mind-bending trip to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We’ve translated it into an ac on sequence and a giant blockbuster film.”
