Marvel has been really silent about one of their movies on the list, Doctor Strange. After casting of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and Tilda Swinton as Ancient One there were no talks about the production at all.
Finally, couple of days ago Cinematographer Ben Davis has talked in an interview about the development associated with the movie so far. Read some of the most interesting comments of Davis below:
“I described it... as Marvel’s Fantasia, in a way, because it’s so sort of out there and different to everything else that they’ve done.”
“It’s all very out there. I can’t really say much more about it, I’m afraid. But I think it’ll be really interesting, and it’s a very dark movie, I’m pleased to say.”
So by comparing Doctor Strange movie with Disney's Fantasia one of the obvious ideas that pops into my mind immediately is that Marvel is really trying to experiment with this character and bring to screen not only the supernatural but also the surreal. And that makes a complete sense because from what I know in the comic books Strange is capable of going to different dimensions and messing with physics of our everyday lives.
On top of all I love the comment about the movie being really dark because that's something Marvel tried to stay away from in all of their movies. And even though second Captain America seemed a little darker than the rest of the Marvel movies it still had that comedic lightness to it.
So I'm very curious about Doctor Strange and mostly because it sounds very different than all of the other generic superhero movies.
