DIRECTOR Scott Derrickson STARS Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen RELEASED 28 October 2016
IT’S A BIRD, IT’S A PLANE It’s a whole new supernatural seam for the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Benedict Cumberbatch assumes the cloak of Stephen Strange, headstrong neurosurgeon turned hex- casting master of the mystic arts. Far- flung filming locations include Nepal and Hong Kong but the plot will hurl us even further out, into the hitherto unseen occult realms of Marvel’s back pages. Freakiness ahoy! From his sorcerous goatee to his silvered temples, Cumberbatch looks like pure comic art, summoned to life by some forbidden spell… SECRET ORIGINS Back To The Future’s Bob Gale wrote a screenplay for Doctor Strange way back in 1986, so long ago that the Ancient One had zits.
SUPER POWER We’re already salivating at the thought of a big- screen take on Steve Ditko’s mindbending dreamscapes from the comic books. IMAX psychedelia, baby!
He has the power.
