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.”

OpEn DOOrS

“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.”

Ori­gin STOry

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.”

SmarT SO­lU­TiOnS

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.”

minD­lESS OnES

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.
