Director Scott Derrickson Production company Marvel Studios
Since first appearing in Marvel Comics in 1963, the doctor and superhero Stephen Strange moves in a supernatural world, in a reality without confines: a ‘multiverse’. Strange is a character imbued with the US New Age culture of the Seventies. The atmospheres are both murky and realistic, with (in)credible special effects: from gaps in space-time to kaleidoscope cities, they fold in on themselves and coagulate into suspended, multidimensional fragments where gravity changes its rules. Marvel Studios explored this dimension through real sets and bold special effects. The film was shot in London, New York, Hong Kong and Kathmandu, together with 21 built sets.
