Benedict Cumberbatch looks super strange in the first Doctor Strange trailer — which is just the way we like him.
Disney and Marvel Studios have blessed us with another poster, and this one features the Sorcerer Supreme looking more mystical than ever. The Twitter caption below reads: "You wonder what I see in your future? Possibility."
And it's about to get weirder, with the announcement that Marvel will further blow your mind by making Doctor Strange in 3-D. Just imagine the wondrous, enhanced visuals that will only be intensified by an added dimension; it's going to look superb.
Producer Kevin Feige discussed the plans for Doctor Strange during the Captain America: Civil War press junket:
"We were in VFX reviews the other day, one of the first ones for that movie — we just wrapped, we finished in New York…we did one of the first reviews and it was pretty exciting. It was pretty cool in terms of how 3D can serve that story. You know, sometimes 3D is a tool, like it is in Civil War, a tool of –another toy in the sandbox of how the Russos (Joe and Anthony) can present this movie, then there are times like what Disney is putting out with The Jungle Book –it’s certainly gonna be the case with Doctor Strange– that it serves the storytelling, that it advances the storytelling. And hopefully it helps bend people’s minds even more than with just the flat screen."
While I'm not the biggest 3-D fanatic, I do think that, when used correctly, it can enhance a film-watching experience rather than detract from it. Watching films like Mad Max: Fury Road and Avatar in 3-D only intensified their enjoyment.
Doctor Strange tells the story of a talented neurosurgeon who, after surviving a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions. It hits theaters on November 4.
