Benedict Cumberbatch says he almost missed out on Doctor Strange role, confirms Avengers: Infinity War appearance

20 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

In less than a month, Marvel Studios will unleash its latest superhero franchise as Benedict Cumberbatch takes on the role of the Sorcerer Supreme in Doctor Strange. However, speaking to Empire, the British actor has revealed that he almost missed out due to his commitments to a stage production of Hamlet.

“[I] really did think I had to kiss it goodbye,” said Cumberbatch. “If you can’t jump on board when the ride’s going past, that’s usually it. So the hugest compliment they paid me was to come back to me. It motivated me to try to fulfill their faith in me.”

As it happened, director Scott Derrickson felt that Cumberbatch was the only fit for the role, despite meeting with Jared Leto, Ryan Gosling and Joaquin Phoenix, so Marvel chief Kevin Feige pushed the film back from its original summer date in order to secure Cumberbatch’s participation. »

Modern horror movies, and the rise of negative space

20 September 2016 2:34 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Kirsten Howard Sep 23, 2016

With horror films such as Blair Witch, It Follows and Sinister, why it's sometimes what you don't see that matters...

This article contains spoilers for It Follows, Sinister, Ringu, the original Blair Witch Project and – as always – Fight Club.

It’s everywhere, it’s terrifying and it’s preying on our fragile psyches. No, not The X Factor, but the other monster, the one we might like to call ‘absolutely nothing at all, really’. It’s the sky, the darkness, the woods or just the background in the frame surrounding the people we see in our television shows and movies. It’s where the threat is, or might be – the unknown in which something could suddenly appear at any moment.

Negative space can be an essential element of any visual composition, but it’s horror movies that often rely on what you don’t see to make a story work. »

Director Scott Derrickson on the casting of Doctor Strange, The Ancient One and Wong

16 September 2016 9:35 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Marvel Studios came under fire this year for its casting on Doctor Strange, receiving criticism in some quarters for the “whitewashing” of The Ancient One, with Tilda Swinton set to portray a character generally depicted as an elderly Asian male. Swinton has previously shared her thoughts on the controversy, and now director Scott Derrickson has weighed in during an interview with the Los Angeles Daily News, where he explained his casting choice:

“Tilda was a way of adding diversity in terms of not just an ethereal, enigmatic, otherworldly actress playing an ethereal, enigmatic, otherworldly character, but we’re bringing a middle-aged woman who’s not 28 years old in leather pants into the Marvel Universe in a major role.”

Derrickson went on to reveal that by switching the race of the Ancient One, he was convinced to add Wong (Benedict Wong) into the film, having initially been reluctant to include him »

Check Out the New Featurette For Marvel’s Doctor Strange

15 September 2016 7:48 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Marvel’s Doctor Strange opens November 4th and this new 2-minute featurette  they’ve just released looks at some crazy, trippy visuals in the film and some hints about the main character’s back story. Doctor Strange is about a surgeon, played by Benedict Cumberbatch, who becomes a mystical superhero following a car accident and a spiritual sojourn to Nepal.

Doctor Strange which Scott Derrickson co-wrote with frequent collaborator C. Robert Cargill (Sinister), co-stars Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Mordo, Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, Michael Stuhlbarg as Nicodemus West, Benedict Wong as Wong, and Mads Mikkelsen plays the story’s villain Kaecililius. This featurette serves as an introduction to the character Doctor Strange, and seems aimed more so at people unfamiliar with the Marvel hero.

Doctor Strange Runtime Revealed, Gets Early UK Release Date

7 September 2016 2:30 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After a disappointing summer season, the movie-going public is eagerly awaiting something that can wash the bad taste out of their mouths. Marvel Studios' Doctor Strange is only a couple of months away, and the McU's latest hero could very well be the palate cleanser we all need. It just so happens that if you live in the UK, you will be getting that palate cleansed a bit sooner than everyone else, as the release date for the movie has just been bumped up overseas.

Thanks to a tweet that was sent out earlier today from the Marvel UK Twitter account, we now know that Doctor Strange will be landing in UK cinemas on Tuesday, October 25. Originally, the movie was scheduled to open on the 28, which doesn't make it a massive move, but the sooner the better. Well, sooner for fans in the UK anyway. As of now, the U. »

What Does Stan Lee Think of the Doctor Strange Movie?

3 September 2016 1:27 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Doctor Strange is a movie that has been a long time coming. It was always planned as an McU adventure, and is known as a pet project of Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige. This November, Stephen Strange's mystical journey finally comes to the big screen. And early word of mouth is that it's great. Of course, these words are coming from none other than Marvel Comics creator himself Stan Lee. And this is a man who finds it hard to even criticize the worst that Marvel has had to offer over the past couple of decades.

But according to Stan 'The Man' Lee, director Scott Derrickson was the right man, perhaps the only man, for the job. Derrickson is best known as a horror director, having helmed such hits as Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Deliver Us From Evil. And it was this penchant for the supernatural that won Derrickson the job. »

Doctor Strange Video Asks You to Open Your Mind

30 August 2016 2:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Two years ago, Marvel Studios introduced fans to the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, which went on to be one of the biggest movies of 2014, despite being based on a rather obscure comic book. This year, the Marvel Phase 3 lineup continues with an introduction to the mystical and magical corner of the McU with Doctor Strange, hitting theaters nationwide November 4. Today we have a new preview that goes behind-the-scenes of Doctor Strange, and offers more details on how Chiwetel Ejiofor's Baron Mordo fits into the story.

This new preview, which debuted on Marvel's YouTube, features plenty of behind-the-scenes footage along with interviews with executive producer Stephen Broussard and Chiwetel Ejiofor, who reveals that his character Baron Mordo is "instrumental" in Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) being introduced to this universe, since he is "close" to The Ancient One, played by Tilda Swinton. We also hear from Tilda Swinton, »
