Benedict Cumberbatch Wants ‘Doctor Strange 2’ Directed by Scott Derrickson Again

7 hours ago | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Doctor Strange is officially out of theaters, and it racked up an impressive $675.8 million at the worldwide box office. It’s going to make even more now that it’s available to download on Digital HD, and next week it will be available on Blu-ray and DVD too. Despite the film’s success though, Marvel Studios has […]

Benedict Cumberbatch wants director Scott Derrickson to return for Doctor Strange 2

24 February 2017 4:16 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel may be a little too busy to start thinking about Doctor Strange 2 just yet, but we’ll be seeing plenty of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dr. Stephen Strange in Phase Three, with the Sorcerer Supreme set to appear in November’s Thor: Ragnarok, along with next year’s Avengers: Infinity War. Nevertheless, given the box office success of the first movie, it’s inevitable that we will get a second sequel, and speaking to Cinema Blend, Cumberbatch has revealed that he hopes to see Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson back at the helm.

“Scott’s got, he’s very good on process, and he’s very good on visuals and he had to cram a lot in,” said Cumberbatch. “I mean this was a much harder shoot in many ways than I imagine some of the other origin stories had been. They’re all hard, not to detract from the »

Can We Give The DC Extended Universe A Little Credit?

24 February 2017 2:56 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

"The DC Extended Universe is in trouble." That’s a lot of the narrative surrounding this universe from Warner Bros that began with Man of Steel in 2012 and continued in 2016 with Batman v Superman and Suicide Squad. Frankly, a lot of fans don’t seem to like these movies, and some have seen the last two films on the slate as a desperate attempt to catch up to Marvel’s own Cinematic Universe before they’ve earned their place alongside them.

But is that really the case? Do they really deserve all the naysayers surrounding them these days?

We believe the answer is twofold, as in "yes, and no."

First, let’s start by getting the negative press out of the way. The Flash lost two directors in a year, and The Batman lost Affleck at its helm, seeming to imply a lack of faith in the project. Meanwhile, they »

Doctor Strange 2: Benedict Cumberbatch Talks Director Scott Derrickson’s Strengths For Potential Sequel

24 February 2017 11:33 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Like Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy before it, Doctor Strange was one of those movies that could revealed itself as the chink in the proverbial Marvel Studios armor. It was a property few mainstream audiences knew about, and it also threatened to tear down the very logic on which the Marvel Cinematic Universe was grounded in. Could they manage to incorporate magic and sorcery into this world with the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor without breaking it completely? The answer was a resounding yes, and audiences and critics fell in love with the Sorcerer Supreme-to-be, and given the success of the film, it’s inevitable that Marvel Studios will eventually revisit the character in his own standalone film.

The question remains, however, is who could the studio hire to take on this task, if it were to happen? Would they hire a new director to helm the project, »

Benedict Cumberbatch Has Only One Director In Mind For Doctor Strange 2

24 February 2017 5:27 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Three years ago, Guardians of the Galaxy shouldered the burden of Marvel’s ‘big risk’, and after James Gunn’s spacefaring romp blew past all expectations, a similar pressure began looming over Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man solo movie the following year. Ditto for Doctor Strange, and it’s really a testimony to writer-director Scott Derrickson that the Sorcerer Supreme’s standalone flick was able to transition audiences to the more fantastical, mythical corners of the McU with relative ease.

A $673 million haul at the international box office was enough to warrant early chatter of a sequel, and though Derrickson himself has conceded that his busy schedule may force him to vacate the director’s chair – or, the very least, nudge Doctor Strange 2 onto the back-burner – Benedict Cumberbatch is adamant that Scott Derrickson is the only man for the job.

Chatting to Cinema Blend, the Sherlock actor highlighted Derrickson’s particular creative process, »

Doctor Strange Director Thanks Fans as Theatrical Run Ends

22 February 2017 9:32 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a week before the Blu-ray release, Doctor Strange has finally wrapped up its theatrical run. The movie came out in November and was kind of a risk for Marvel Studios considering that very few people were familiar with the character just a few months ago. Now that this Phase 3 adventure has finished its time at the box office, it is safe to say the risk paid off and that Doctor Strange is definitely a success.

All told, Doctor Strange made $675 million at the worldwide box office, which definitely surpassed expectations. It really speaks to the brand that Marvel Studios has managed to build, further displaying how much trust fans have in their movies. People also really seemed to respond to Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange. Director Scott Derrickson took to Twitter in order to thank the many Marvel fans who helped make the movie a success, along with a »

New to Streaming: ‘Moonlight,’ ‘Allied,’ ‘Fire at Sea,’ ‘Doctor Strange,’ and More

17 February 2017 10:50 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Allied (Robert Zemeckis)

That thing we can’t take for granted: a film whose many parts – period piece, war picture, blood-spattered actioner, deception-fueled espionage thriller, sexy romance, and, at certain turns, comedy – can gracefully move in conjunction and separate from each other, just as its labyrinthine-but-not-quite plot jumps from one setpiece to the next with little trouble in maintaining a consistency of overall pleasure. Another late-career triumph for Robert Zemeckis, »

41 Things We Learned From The Doctor Strange Audio Commentary

16 February 2017 7:46 AM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

No matter how much we cover about these films leading up to their release, the amount of work that goes into them, and the number of stories that can be derived are almost endless. As such, there's always a good number of facts and anecdotes that slip between the cracks of all our coverage. If you're a film junkie like us, audio commentaries serve as great insight into these films from the filmmakers themselves, and the one for Doctor Strange was no exception.

In the Digital HD release of Doctor Strange, director Scott Derrickson delved into many details from the film. From the controversial casting of Tilda Swinton to some of the callbacks and homages he threw into the picture, there were a great number of details we relished in our watchthrough of the audio commentary.

Here are 41 things we learned from Scott Derrickson in the commentary:

The Raid Remake Gets Bad Boys 3 Director Joe Carnahan

15 February 2017 1:50 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Remakes are a very common thing in Hollywood. Often times, a foreign movie will introduce a great concept but not manage to be able to find their way to American audiences. So, a filmmaker or filmmakers will get inspired to retell the story or revisit the concepts in the hopes of bringing the movie to a larger audience. Director Joe Carnahan has now officially confirmed that he is going to attempt this with The Raid and will be directing a "reimagining" of the beloved action flick with Frank Grillo attached to star.

A remake of The Raid has been in the works for quite some time now, but Joe Carnahan, who is known for directing movies like The Grey and the upcoming Bad Boys 3 is now in place as a very important piece of the puzzle. He has worked with Frank Grillo in the past on The Grey and the upcoming action flick Wheelman. »

How Doctor Strange Connects to Ant-Man

15 February 2017 10:38 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Doctor Strange has finally landed on digital platforms and the Blu-ray is set for release in a couple of weeks. Director Scott Derrickson provided a commentary track for Doctor Strange and those can often reveal fun little tidbits about the movie that weren't previously known. In this case, it was revealed that Doctor Strange and Ant-Man share a connection.

During the commentary track for Doctor Strange, as reported by Comic Book Resources, Scott Derrickson confirmed that, during the psychedelic sequence that occurred when The Ancient One opened up Stephen Strange's mind, the Quantum Realm does appear, which was first seen in Ant-Man. Here is what Scott Derrickson had to say about it.

"This image here is obviously a nod to Ant-Man and the Quantum Realm, acknowledging that as one of the mysterious realms of existence."

It was long suggested by Marvel Cinematic Universe fans that we did get a glimpse »

That Was Indeed The Quantum Realm From Ant-Man In Doctor Strange

14 February 2017 6:59 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

While Doctor Strange took us to some very, well, strange places, it was actually Ant-Man which first explored a different side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When Scott Lang shrunk down in order to stop Yellowjacket, he was transported to the Quantum Realm, the same place it’s thought Janet Van Dyne is trapped.

In Doctor Strange, the titular hero was sent into multiple realms by The Ancient One, and if at least one of those looked familiar, it’s because you’ve seen it before. Scott Derrickson’s film is now available on Digital HD, and in his Director’s Commentary, he confirmed that the movie did indeed pay a brief visit to Ant-Man‘s Quantum Realm.

“This image here is obviously a nod to Ant-Man and the Quantum Realm, acknowledging that as one of the mysterious realms of existence.”

It’s widely believed that we’ll return there »

Doctor Strange Gets Unnecessarily Censored in Fan-Made Video

14 February 2017 3:47 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Doctor Strange wound up being a really big success for Marvel Studios, despite the fact that it was something of a risk, since only die-hard comic book fans were really familiar with the character prior to the release of the movie. While the movie did feature some interesting language, due to the fact that it had a lot to do with magic and sorcery, it was a pretty clean and family friendly movie, outside of some relatively tame violence, at least by American moviegoer standards. But thanks to a new YouTube video and some needless censorship, that has all changed.

The DailyAsgardianNews YouTube channel recently uploaded a video titled Doctor Strange: Unnecessary Censorship. Marvel Studios released Doctor Strange on digital platforms today, which gave DailyAsgardianNews the footage they needed to make this video happen. It essentially takes the unnecessary censorship segment from Jimmy Kimmel Live and applies it to Doctor Strange. »

New Concept Art From Thor: Ragnarok Gives Us Our First Look At Cate Blanchett As Hela & World War Hulk

13 February 2017 9:50 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Unless we get a major surprise in the next few weeks, Marvel Studios isn't expected to debut the first teaser trailer for Taika Waititi's Thor: Ragnarok until at least mid-April with the arrival of James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, so until then these new pieces of concept art will have to hold you over. The amazing new artwork comes to us from the Phase 3 sneak peek, that was included on the Digital HD release of Scott Derrickson's Doctor Strange (which is available worldwide Now), and is arguably the most revealing thing we've seen from the movie thus far as we catch our first real look at 2x Academy Award-winner Cate Blanchett as the film's primary villain Hela. The art also teases the sure-to-be epic gladiator battle between Chris Hemsworth's God of Thunder and Mark Ruffalo's Incredible Hulk. Check it out below:  In Marvel Studios' "Thor: Ragnarok, »

Doctor Strange Deleted Scenes Expose Villain Kaecilius

13 February 2017 3:05 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

New bonus material from the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray release of Doctor Strange gives us a deeper peek at it's villain, Kaecilius and the Zealots that follow him. The two deleted scenes show a few darker moments that were cut from the movie and some excellent concept art where you can see how this character was developed.

2016 was a big one for Marvel Studios. Not only did Captain America: Civil War deliver in a big way and finally introduce Spider-Man into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Strange, which was something of a gamble, really paid off. Not only did the movie do very well at the box office, despite being a very bizarre and pretty unknown character prior to the movie, fans and critics really responded and it has opened up an entirely new corner of the Marvel Universe. Now, in anticipation of the home video release of Doctor Stranger, Marvel »
