SFX’s lifeblood (that’s you, dear readers) dream Doctor Strange.
hey there, house of ideas, our readers have got a whole load more ideas for your upcoming blockbuster…
EMBRACE THE MAGIC
The mcU has done a superb job mixing the mythical with far-fetched science, but Jonathan harvey wants Doctor Strange to introduce the mystical side of marvel comics to the big screen. “Fully embrace the world of magic, no half-hearted reliance on science.”
“i think one of the most important aspects is that it opens the door to the supernatural in the mcU,” says Lysander. “With that, marvel has justification to name-drop characters like ghost rider, moon Knight, Daimon hellstrom etc. hell, characters like captain britain could make more sense since he is tied into merlin and avalon.”
We may be intimately familiar with Spider-man, iron man and captain america’s origins at this stage, but the origin story of Stephen Strange is significantly less well known, which is why gary pratt wants to see it done right. “have a brief origin story. according to Kevin Feige, Stephen Strange has one of the more interesting origins, so not being a big comic book fan i’d like to see this. also no killing off the villain after one movie.”
if Doctor Who has taught us anything it’s that the Sonic Screwdriver can get its owner out of almost any predicament. FlangeBadger doesn’t want sci-fi’s other famous Doctor to possess a similar get out of jail free card. “i’d like Dr Strange to use his mind as much as his magic. i’m not interested in seeing foes vanquished with a flick of the wand.”
The ancient One and baron mordo have already been confirmed as supporting players, but you’d also like to see Dormammu, nightmare and a certain army of extradimensional faceless creatures. “pant-wettingly terrifying mindless Ones. The scarier the better,” says mediumatomicWeight.
