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, utilising a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel Cinematic Universe.Written by
Benedict Cumberbatch states that the spiritualism of Doctor Strange is what appeals to him the most about the role. "I'm very excited about that spiritual dimension. It's something that's been a huge part of my life. I meditate a lot, that's a huge tool in trying to calm myself, get away from the crazy circus of it all, have a focused mind as well as be a kinder, considerate person in the world," said Cumberbatch.

The MRI scan would not have happened if there was a bullet in the brain. Consequence of doing an MRI scan would mean the patient would have died due to the magnet and its strength. A CT scan would have sufficed.
Actually a CT would not show the brain stem (the area the bullet is located). So the only chance saving the patients life (with time being of the essence) IS the MRI - hoping the bullet is not magnetic (for example titanium).
Most modern bullets in production today are copper jacked lead or just lead. While steel core copper jacketed bullets are available, they are uncommon.
Copper and lead are both non-magnetic so this would not present a problem. See more »
I think this film hugely benefits from being something at least a little different from most Marvel films. It's different in the focus that is on magic and sorcery and all of that. However, it's still quite familiar in its arc and predictable beats. The cast is fine, although nothing ever really great. Swinton manages to rise above her material, as predicted that she would. Rachel McAdams also adds a lot of heart to her character, who has a lot of screen time but who is really likable. The action sequences here are really impressive and they make a lot of the film worth it. As it is, it's not bad at all and it's enjoyable, just nothing too memorable.
