Doctor Strange Is Next Step in Marvel's Evolution Says Cumberbatch

27 April 2016 12:16 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Doctor Strange is one of the few movies that was in development long before Marvel Studios even existed. Marvel had been working on the project independently, much like they were with Ant-Man, a few years before Marvel Studios was established. Next week, Marvel will launch Phase 3 of their lucrative McU, with Captain America: Civil War, followed by Doctor Strange, arriving in theaters November 4. As fans noticed when the first trailer arrived earlier this month, the Sorcerer Supreme is a character unlike any we've ever seen in the McU thus far. And star Benedict Cumberbatch agrees. He says this movie will push the Marvel Cinematic Universe to new heights.

Fans previously caught a glimpse at the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the 2014 blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy, but Doctor Strange showcases some of the mystical elements of the McU here on Earth. Benedict Cumberbatch recently spoke with Empire Online, »

"Doctor Strange" Scribe On Ancient One Casting

25 April 2016 9:41 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

C. Robert Cargill, the "Sinister" scribe and the co-writer behind Marvel Studios' upcoming "Doctor Strange" film, says that no way the studio could avoid upsetting audiences in regards to the cast of The Ancient One role in the movie.

The character has traditionally been an elderly Asian man, but when it came time to cast the film it was tall, caucasian actress Tilda Swinton that scored the role. It was a left field casting choice that has been met by good reaction in some circles for smashing stereotypes, but bad in others for it being yet another case of Hollywood whitewashing.

Speaking with Double Toasted podcast, Cargill drops a "Star Trek" reference in his explanation as to why they couldn't win whatever choice they made:

"There is no other character in Marvel history that is such a cultural landmine, that is absolutely unwinnable. I've been reading a bunch of people talking about it, »

Tilda Swinton addresses “whitewashing” of The Ancient One in Marvel’s Doctor Strange

22 April 2016 2:15 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week, Hollywood was once again accused of “whitewashing” with the release of the first image of Scarlett Johansson in the live-action Ghost in the Shell movie, but that isn’t the only movie which has come under fire lately for culturally reappropriating a character traditionally depicted as Asian.

Marvel’s Doctor Strange features a bald Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, mentor to Benedict Cumerbatch’s Dr. Stephen Strange, and a Tibetan-born male character in the Marvel comic book universe. Despite Marvel receiving praise for casting a female, the studio has come in for some criticism due to this being a white female, and Swinton has addressed the controversy during a screening of her new film A Bigger Splash.

“Well, it’s not actually an Asian character — that’s what I need to tell you about it,” said Swinton (via THR). “I wasn’t asked to play an Asian character, »

It’s about time that we all watched that amazing Doctor Strange title sequence again

18 April 2016 12:24 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Last week saw Marvel debut their first trailer for Doctor Strange. Being a teaser, the promo focused on establishing the movie’s tone than giving away plot details. That tone does not seem to be a comedic one.

There will undoubtedly be some humour in the eventual Doctor Strange movie. That’s the Marvel way. But, for the initial marketing at least, Scott Derrickson and company are emphasising mind-bending visuals and car accidents over campy, magical fun.

In other words, this ain’t Thor with a goatee.

But 10 months ago, This Is Productions made a terrific opening credits sequence for Doctor Strange. Aptly using The Flaming Lips track The W.A.N.D., he gave the film a considerably more psychedelic interpretation than the teaser we got, referencing the character’s 60s-infused first decade. Enjoy the trip below…

What do you think of a campier, Guardians of the Galaxy-esque version of Doctor Strange? »

What Marvel’s Doctor Strange trailer Didn’T show you – comparing last year’s D23 Concept Art presentation with the film’s first teaser

17 April 2016 1:56 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oli Davis and Luke Owen compare what we saw in the first Doctor Strange teaser with the film’s Concept Art trailer screened last year…

This week saw Marvel debut their first trailer for Doctor Strange on Jimmy Kimmel. Ben ‘Batman’ Affleck must be fuming given his and Kimmel’s history. The trailer didn’t give away much in the way of story and we didn’t even get a proper look at Strange in his full gear; just a tantalising ‘up-the-cape’ shot (as the superhero gossip magazines call it). Instead, the teaser focused on conveying a sense of tone, setting up the mood of the film and introducing the first magical elements of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Asgardian mumbo jumbo not withstanding).

Back in October, however, Flickering Myth’s Luke Owen was invited to Disney’s presentation of their 2016 release slate. There, they showed a concept art trailer for Doctor Strange, »

First Doctor Strange Trailer – Flickering Myth Reaction

14 April 2016 1:59 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The Flickering Myth Team react…

See Also: Read the Flickering Myth Reactions to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Captain America: Civil War, Suicide Squad, Ghostbusters and more

Yesterday, we got our first look at the Mystical side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe via the trailer for Doctor Strange [watch it here]. It’s only a teaser, but we got to see a lot of Strange’s new and exciting worlds which will certainly act as a nice pallet cleanser following Captain America: Civil War.

But what did the Flickering Myth writing staff make of it?

Chris Cooper: Now I know what a Nolan Marvel film would look like. A mix between Batman Begins and Inception, with some Interstellar mixed in. Colour me curious.

Aj Black: Loved it. Feels like a superhero movie brewed with Inception. Fantastic. More excited about this than any other superhero film this year.

Doctor Strange Trailer Details Massively Origin Story Effort By Marvel

13 April 2016 3:36 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

One of the best things to come out of the comic-movie boom is the increased possibility of lesser-known heroes getting their own time on the stage. Before the huge expansion, and billions of dollars, of the last decade or so, comic fans had little hope of ever seeing some of their favorites outside of fairly goofy television incarnations.

Back when only Batman and Superman could manage a film at all, much less a decent budget, Doctor Strange fans didn’t even bother to hope.

But, here we are…

Not only is Doctor Strange coming in November, but hot property Benedict Cumberbatch, a brilliant choice, is going to play the Sorcerer Supreme.

The trailer looks both amazing and a little wacky, which is perfect, and gives you the idea that we’re in for something that does a lot of origin work. That makes sense, even if Doctor Strange were better known, »

The First Doctor Strange Trailer Is Here!!!

12 April 2016 11:50 PM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

Filming only wrapped recently, but the first trailer for Marvel Studios’ trippy exploration of the more mystical side of the McU is here, and, boy, does Doctor Strange look promising. As you would expect, it’s just a tease of things to come, but director Scott Derrickson (Sinister) promises some mind bending visuals and breathtaking set pieces. Whispers of another ‘gamble’ on Marvel Studios' part will no doubt abound up until the day of its release, and while this doesn’t feel like the all round crowd pleaser Guardians of the Galaxy was, I think the studios has another winner on their hands. Released: November 4th 2016Synopsis: “Doctor Strange” follows the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions. »

Cumberbatch Awakens In First Doctor Strange Teaser

12 April 2016 10:18 PM, PDT | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

The first teaser trailer for Marvel's Doctor Strange has just dropped and there is plenty to get excited about. Emanating a strong Batman Begins vibe, the film shows Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) having his mind well and truly blown after a serious beating appears to leave the successful surgeon's life and perception in tatters. Journeying to Nepal, Strange encounters Tilda Swinton's "Ancient One" and Chiwetel Ejiofor's Baron Mordo, and he learns to harness magic and become a powerful sorcerer.  The trailer also includes glimpses of Hong Kong among a number of suitably exotic locations for what appears to be a grand scale origin story from director Scott Derrickson (Sinister, Deliver Us From Evil) and writers C. Robert Cargill (Sinister) and John Spaihts (Prometheus). Featuring...

Benedict Cumberbatch Discovers a World of Magic In First Trailer for Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange’

12 April 2016 8:55 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Following last summer’s Ant-Man, the latest Marvel feature to let a new character lead the action comes is Doctor Strange. 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 film’s first trailer has now arrived. First, though, if you’re like yours truly and know nothing about the character aside from Cumberbatch wearing a fanciful get-up, we’ll let producer Kevin Feige explain.

“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 »
