Benedict Cumberbatch and Scott Derrickson talk Doctor Strange, new character rumours surface

9 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With just a little over three months to go before Marvel Studios unleashes Doctor Strange, Total Film has been chatting to star Benedict Cumberbatch and director Scott Derrickson about the latest chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“There’s never been any limitation on the weirdness that I was striving for and that I think the comics represent,” states Derrickson, describing the movie as “out there”. “[Marvel are] not at all enslaved to the source material, but they are, I think, very good at recognising what made each comic great.”

Derrickson then spoke about the decision to explore the origin of Stephen Strange’s Sorcerer Supreme, adding that: “I think that the movie needed to tell that origin in order to become invested in the character. But also, some familiarity was required given the incredible weirdness the movie gets into.”

7 Films New to Netflix to Watch In September 2016, Including ‘Zootopia’ and ‘The Imitation Game’

10 hours ago | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Next month over on streaming giant Netflix offers up a giant selection of films of all stripes — modern to classic, animated to live action, Oscar contender to…not so much — and we’ve picked seven (well, really 11) that you should watch as soon as humanly possible, either for the first time or as part of a nostalgic little binge. Enjoy.

1. “Footloose” (available September 1)

If you’ve never experienced the original “Footloose” — no, not the one starring Miles Teller, though he is quite serviceable in a charming role — do yourself a favor and check out Herbert Ross’ 1984 classic. Yes, the concept of a town outlawing dancing is bizarre and outdated, but Ross and his cast (including Kevin Bacon in the kind of star-making role that’s so rare these days) really sell the concept, thanks to some serious drama and hard-earned emotion. But there is also dancing! It’s joyous and gymnastic and pure, »

Rumor: Brother Voodoo May Appear In Doctor Strange Movie

13 hours ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Marvel's Doctor Strange is set to hit theaters in about two months time, and it looks the film will be adding another character with mystical powers who will be in the film for just a brief moment in Doctor Strange.

Warning, minor spoilers potentially ahead. 

It looks like Brother Voodoo may be making an appearance in the film. According to the folks over at That Hashtag Show, Jericho Drumm, better known as Brother Voodoo, will have a very small and brief cameo appearance in the film. Last month the Doctor Strange prelude comic book was released and Jericho's brother Daniel Drumm appeared in it, basically teasing us about Brother Voodoo.

Here is what That Hashtag Show had to say about it:

"Daniel Drumm's brother, Jericho, better known as Brother Voodoo will be making a small cameo in full costume. However, it seems as if it will be a very brief scene, »

Doctor Strange to Unleash the Power of Brother Voodoo?

25 August 2016 3:11 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With the release a little more than two months away, we will surely be learning a lot about Marvel's upcoming movie Doctor Strange as the weeks roll on. And it looks like we may have learned that Benedict Cumberbatch will be joined by a magic-using friend in the movie. No doubt, Stephen Strange is the most powerful and well-known practitioner of the mystic arts in the Marvel canon, but a new rumor suggests one of his fellow magician friend will be joining him, even if only for a brief moment in Doctor Strange. Warning, minor spoilers potentially ahead. With that out of the way, it looks like Brother Voodoo may be making an appearance in the movie.

According to a recent episode of That Hashtag Show, Jericho Drumm, better known as Brother Voodoo, will have a very small and brief cameo appearance in the movie. His brother, Daniel Drumm, already »

Lego Marvel Super Heroes – Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum (76060) Review

25 August 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Gary Collinson reviews Lego Marvel Super Heroes – Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum…

2016 has been a rather solid year for Lego’s Marvel Super Heroes line; we’ve had some excellent Captain America: Civil War tie-ins and Spider-Man sets (including Spider-Man: Ghost Rider Team-Up, which I absolutely loved), and now the folks at Lego have one other treat for us with Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum, which of course ties in with November’s hotly-anticipated Phase Three origin story starring Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme.

The set, which consists of 358 pieces and retails for $29.99 / £29.99, includes three exclusive minifigures for Doctor Strange, The Ancient One and Karl Mordo, all based upon their appearance in the upcoming film. Yes, Lego fans can finally put Smaug to one side with the very first Benedict Cumberbatch minifigure, and it’s a pretty fantastic rendition of the Master of the Mystic Arts. There’s some »

Community’s Dan Harmon has contributed to the Doctor Strange script

25 August 2016 1:45 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Dan Harmon has contributed to the screenplay for Marvel’s upcoming Phase Three origin story Doctor Strange, with the Community co-creator brought in to provide some last minute rewrites on the superhero blockbuster.

According to the site, Harmon came on board after post-production had wrapped, and contributed pages for “additional photography”, a.k.a. reshoots, which is of course a common occurrence on Marvel Studios productions (and most blockbusters today, for that matter). The actual screenplay is credited to director Scott Derrickson and his Sinister co-writer C. Robert Cargill, who also share a story credit with Jon Spaihts (Prometheus).

Emmy Predictions 2016: Period Pieces Dominate the Cinematography Race

24 August 2016 3:28 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Four of the top cinematography contenders— “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” “Sherlock: The Abominable Bride,” “The Man in the High Castle” and the “Downton Abbey” finale — play with period in ways that are eye-catching and often unusual.

Cinematographer Nelson Craig (“Homeland”), nominated  in the limited series/movie category for the “O.J.” opener (“From the Ashes of Tragedy”) , wanted a naturalistic look that made it contemporary and brought us closer to the players from “The Trial of the Century.” That is why he’s the favorite to win the Emmy.

What Craig had in mind was Michael Mann’s “The Insider”: not stylistically showy because the drama and performances were sufficiently heightened already. In fact, director Ryan Murphy initially wanted to shoot on film for the grain and the period look, but Craig found it too cumbersome shooting four or five cameras (for navigating »

Community creator Dan Harmon is set to follow in the footsteps of his Greendale alumni (read: Civil War directors Joe and Anthony Russo) directly into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with The Hollywood Reporter revealing today that Harmon has been drafted in to pen reshoots for Doctor Strange.

Scott Derrickson’s origin story may have wrapped principal photography some months ago, but one source close to THR claims that Harmon has been brought aboard for “additional photography” alongside Derrickson himself and co-writers C. Robert Cargill and Jon Spaihts. Beyond that, the exact specifics of those reshoots remain a mystery.

Either way, Doctor Strange isn’t the first superhero tentpole to ushered back before the cameras – nor will it be the last. Late last year, Captain America Civil War was subject to additional photography to nip and tuck Joe and Anthony Russo’s barnstorming blockbuster, »

Doctor Strange: extra scenes to be written by Community's Dan Harmon

24 August 2016 1:17 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Ryan Lambie Aug 25, 2016

With its release only months away, Marvel has brought in Community writer Dan Harmon to pen additional scenes, a report suggests...

We're only a few months away from Benedict Cumberbatch's debut as the Sorceror Supreme in Marvel's Doctor Strange, but the studio is still intent on fine-tuning certain aspects of its story. The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Community and Rick And Morty writer Dan Harmon has been brought in to pen some "additional last minute scenes" for Doctor Strange, which wrapped principal photography back in April. 

While we don't currently know exactly what Harmon's writing in those extra scenes, or how many there are, his track record might imply that he's adding a few quips or one-liners to lighten the tone. The original screenplay was written by Scott Derrickson (who also directs) and C Robert Cargill, a pair who previously worked together on the lean Blumhouse horror, »

Thor: Ragnarok Stars Take Mjolnir to Australian Children's Hospital

24 August 2016 8:32 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, Spider-Man: Homecoming star Tom Holland suited up as Spidey to visit a local Atlanta Children's Hospital while on-location shooting the Marvel Phase 3 adventure. The superhero charity train continued this week, as Thor: Ragnarok stars took a break from shooting their sequel to drop in on some unexacting kids. And trust us, they were all very excited!

Tom Hiddleston showed up at the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital wearing the same black suit he's been spotted shooting in on the streets of Brisbane this past week. He was accompanied by co-star and leading man Chris Hemsworth, who dropped by this Australia hospital in Thor's civilian wardrobe. He didn't need his Asgardian armor to be immediately recognized by the patients, though!

Marvel Studios and Chris Hemsworth shared photos from the fun meet and greet, which included an appearance by Thor's mighty hammer Mjolnir. The Thor pair even appeared on »

Ever since Iron Man roared onto the silver screen almost a decade ago, Marvel Studios has developed a lucrative knack of introducing relatively obscure characters to the moviegoing masses. Think Guardians of the Galaxy or even a lesser-known persona in the vein of Hawkeye.

That ability will be put to the sword once again with the release of Doctor Strange, Scott Derrickson’s mystical spinoff that is booked in for theatrical release in early November.

Given it stands as Marvel’s final superhero movie of the year, Doctor Strange enjoyed a strong showing at San Diego Comic-Con, when the company unleashed a brand new trailer on the vying masses crammed into Hall H.

Thor: Ragnarok Set Photo Reveals Huge Marvel Cameo Spoiler

22 August 2016 11:11 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since filming began on Thor: Ragnarok last month, shooting has taken place at Village Roadshow Studios in Queensland, Australia. While we've seen a few photos from the set, thanks to some aerial photography, we'll likely see plenty more now that filming has shifted to Brisbane, Australia. We reported yesterday that several New York City taxi cabs and emergency vehicles have been spotted in Brisbane in the latest sneak peek. Now that filming has started in the city, we have even more photos and video, including one that teases a huge Marvel Cinematic Universe cameo. There will be Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.

Long before filming began, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige teased that most of this story would take place in the cosmos, and it wasn't too surprising to learn that Natalie Portman's Jane Foster will not be returning. With the presence of these »

New Thor: Ragnarok Set Photos Hint At Doctor Strange Cameo

22 August 2016 6:39 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

Late last night, a new batch of stills emerged from the Brisbane, Queensland set of Thor: Ragnarok, showing off stars Tom Hiddleston and Chris Hemsworth in what’s supposed to be New York City. At the time, we had no idea what the context of the scene being filmed was, but today, we may have gotten our first clue.

Director Taika Waititi posted three more pictures earlier this morning to his Twitter feed (re-Tweeting photographer Daley Pearson) and one of them has revealed something pretty exciting. In the gallery above, you’ll notice the first photo features Hemsworth holding a business card. Nothing special about that, right? Well, not quite.

A closer look reveals the address on the business card, which reads 177A Bleecker Street. That may not mean much to most of you, but hardcore Marvel fans will know it as the location of Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum. »

Possible Spoiler – Thor: Ragnarok set photo suggests a huge cameo

22 August 2016 4:06 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Warning: potential spoilers below…

Thor: Ragnarok is currently in production in Australia and New York, and a eagle-eyed comic book writer has pointed out that a set photo reveals a potential cameo for the movie.

Drew at Hitflix was informed on Twitter by Gerry Duggan that the below set photo, which sees Thor holding a business card, is leading him to the home of Doctor Stephen Strange.

This should mean that Benedict Cumberbatch will feature in Thor: Ragnarok in some capacity, which is a clever way of keeping the character active before he joins Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in Avengers: Infinity War.

Should this rumour be proven correctly, it joins the news that Robert Downey Jr. is set to cameo in Doctor Strange, which is set for release in November. With Hulk also featuring in Thor: Ragnarok and a multitude of characters cameoing in Captain America: Civil War, it’s »

Looks like Thor might be searching for a strange doctor in 'Thor: Ragnarok'

22 August 2016 3:40 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Thor’s making a house call for a very specific Marvel Universe doctor. Doctor Strange, that is. Actually, we don’t know that for sure, but it looks like that’s at least a strong possibility. Daley Pearson, a writer for shows like The Strange Calls and 7 Days Later, is based in Australia where Thor Ragnarok is shooting, and he posted some photos from the set of the film. There’s a great one of Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, and director Taika Waititi, who may well be the funniest person to ever make a Marvel movie, and that’s a pretty high bar when you’ve got dudes like Shane Black, James Gunn, and Joss Whedon in the mix. There’s something that looks like a construction site. And then there’s this one — — where Hemsworth is holding a business card with a handwritten address on it. That address? It »
