Benedict Cumberbatch gets the Hot Toys treatment with Doctor Strange collectible figure

7 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to Toy Ark, we’ve got an early glimpse at Hot Toys’ upcoming 1/6th scale Doctor Strange collectible figure based on the likeness of Benedict Cumberbatch from Marvel Studios’ upcoming Phase Three origin story for the Sorcerer Supreme. The images show a prototype of the figure, which is on display at Animation-Comic-Game Hong Kong; check them out here…

Marvel’s Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.

Benjamin Bratt has a role in Doctor Strange

26 July 2016 10:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to the eagle-eyed folks over at McU Exchange, it is now known that actor Benjamin Bratt will have a role in this year’s Doctor Strange.

Many believed that the cast list for the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe installment had already been released in its entirety, but Bratt’s involvement, which was revealed when his name was spotted at the bottom of the newest Doctor Strange Comic-Con poster, proves otherwise. Who knows, if this bit of casting news was kept secret until now, maybe other actors will pop up on screen and surprise audience members when the movie hit theaters. Currently, the actor’s character in the film is unknown.

As you may have heard, a small gathering of like-minded fans is taking place in San Diego this weekend.

Watch the film’s newly released trailer below.

Tilda Swinton’s casting as the Ancient One, a character conceived of and previously portrayed as Tibetan, has made “Doctor Strange” part of this year’s ongoing whitewashing debate along with the upcoming “Ghost in the Shell.” Her character, a sagacious mentor who’s been retconned as Celtic, is on prominent display here as she helps Strange unlock his supernatural abilities; the trailer also offers glimpses of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong and Mads Mikkelsen.

Doctor Strange Gets A New Trailer

24 July 2016 12:17 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Marvel Studios invaded Comic-Con’s Hall H, and while the panel was less trailer heavy than Warner Bros. a few hours before, there was some awesome reveals. The sole trailer  released to the public kinda made up for everything though, with a new, more rounded look at Doctor Strange and the craziness Scott Derrickson’s (Sinister) walk on the more mystical side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has in store for us. A visually stunning head trip is definitely promised, and if Marvel Studios pull this off correctly, there’ll be no stopping the giants of the comic book movie genre. Talking raccoons are one thing, but getting audiences to be down with something drastically different from the usual super heroics like this is another story entirely. Released: November 4th 2016Synopsis: “Doctor Strange” follows the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden »

Reality Collapses in Full-Length Trailer For Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange’

23 July 2016 7:04 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

The most promising Marvel movie in some time will be hitting theaters in just a few months. With the promising talents of Scott Derrickson (Sinister) behind the camera and perhaps the best cast the studio has assembled (Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Tilda Swinton), the second trailer has now landed for Doctor Strange and it’s a trippy ride, with quite a hilarious stinger at the end.

For those that need a briefing on the character, “He can do a whole host of things, eventually,” Feige explains to EW. “He does cast spells, which in the comics have very sort of tongue-twisty fun names. We don’t want to shy away from that, because that’s what makes Doctor Strange Doctor Strange. He has a Cloak of Levitation that allows him to fly, but he doesn’t fly like Superman or like Thor. It »

The Purge: Election Year triples its budget with an impressive opening weekend at the box office

4 July 2016 3:09 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

It’s been a good year for horror movies doing well against bigger budgeted blockbusters, and The Purge: Election Year can add its name to that list.

Opening against stiff competition in Steven Spielberg’s The Bfg, The Legend of Tarzan and the money-printing machine Finding Dory, The Purge: Election Year managed an incredibly impressive $31 million on its opening weekend. This means that The Purge: Election Year has already tripled its reported $10 million budget.

It’s also good news for the franchise as its showing signs of growth. The first movie, released in 2013, opened to $34 million but its sequel – The Purge: Anarchy – dropped to $29 million. However, The Purge: Anarchy out-grossed its predecessor’s total with $111 million, which means The Purge: Election Year – in theory – should earn more (it’s also achieved the highest CinemaScore of the trilogy, so that will help).

Expect to hear a fourth movie in development very »

'Captain America: Civil War' Blu-Ray Will Have Exclusive 'Doctor Strange' Content!

30 June 2016 8:12 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

With DC getting all the superhero press lately, you might be wondering, "Doesn't Marvel have another movie coming out this year?" You'd be right, of course, since Doctor Strange is set to take us to new, fantastical places when it comes out on November 4. But, aside from a trailer that's now several months old, there hasn't been much to say about the next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That's going to change when Captain America: Civil War is released on blu-ray.

The home release of Captain America: Civil War is going to include all kinds of great bonus features, but the one that caught our attention was this one:

"'Open Your Mind: Marvel’s Doctor Strange' – Exclusive Sneak Peek – Go behind and beyond the scenes as Doctor Strange makes his journey to the big screen."

Sounds pretty groovy for fans dying for a taste of what director Scott Derrickson »

Benedict Wong says Doctor Strange’s Wong won’t be “a tea-making manservant”

28 June 2016 1:40 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

This November Benedict Wong (Prometheus, The Martian) is set to team up with fellow Brit – and fellow Benedict – Benedict Cumberbatch, as he portrays Dr. Stephen Strange’s sidekick Wong in Marvel’s Doctor Strange.

During an interview with Den of Geek, the appropriately named actor has revealed some details on the direction Marvel is taking with the character:

“I’m certainly not going to be the tea-making manservant. We’re heading in a different direction,” said Wong. “He’s more of a drill sergeant. There isn’t any martial arts for Wong in Doctor Strange actually, he’s more of a drill sergeant to Kamar-Taj. He’s one of the masters of sorcery.”
