Doctor Strange 2 Director - Scott Derrickson

Doctor Strange is officially out of theaters, and it racked up an impressive $675.8 million at the worldwide box office. It’s going to make even more now that it’s available to download on Digital HD, and next week it will be available on Blu-ray and DVD too. Despite the film’s success though, Marvel Studios has been quiet about any plans they might have for a sequel. That’s not stopping Benedict Cumberbatch from letting us know who he’d like to direct a follow-up.

Deliver Us from Evil and Sinister director Scott Derrickson made quite the leap in his career by taking on his first blockbuster tentpole with Doctor Strange. Apparently Derrickson’s work on the film was impressive enough to convince Benedict Cumberbatch that the director should be brought back behind the camera for Doctor Strange 2. Read More »

Doctor Strange Gag Reel

Tomorrow, Marvel’s Doctor Strange will be available to download on Digital HD if you can’t wait for the Blu-ray and DVD to hit shelves in a couple weeks. The home video release will be chock full of bonus features, and one of the most entertaining bits on from all the extras is always the gag reel. There’s just something hilarious about seeing Earth’s mightiest heroes flub their lines, take a misstep, drop their weapons or dance like total goofballs. And the Doctor Strange gag reel is no exception, especially when it comes to Benedict Cumberbatch showing off some dance moves in the Sanctum Sanctorum.

Doctor Strange Deleted Scene

This month you’ll be able to bring Doctor Strange into your living room when the film hits Digital HD next week and Blu-Ray and DVD just a couple weeks later. Marvel’s latest superhero is just getting started with his own franchise, but we’ll see Benedict Cumberbatch in the cape again later this year with a small, key role in Thor: Ragnarok, as well as a pivotal part in The Avengers: Infinity War.

If you can’t wait until Doctor Strange can be watched from the comfort of your home, we have a little fix for all of you fans of the mystical arts out there, especially if you like dogs. Marvel has released a Doctor Strange deleted scene that will be included on the home video release of the franchise starter, and it’s one that might have made him seem like less of a jerk much earlier in the movie.

Dan Harmon Doctor Strange - Benedict Cumberbatch

President Kevin Feige and key decision makers at Marvel are big fans of Community, which was made clear after they first hired directors Anthony and Joe Russo. Feige is also a fan of another show Dan Harmon is responsible for, Rick & Morty, a science-fiction series with some terrific concepts. Feige and filmmaker Scott Derrickson appreciate the far-out ideas explored in that series, as well as its often ingenious structure, so they brought him in to work on some scenes before they did reshoots for Doctor Strange. His feedback on an early cut was invaluable.

Below, learn about Dan Harmon’s Doctor Strange contributions.

The War Magician

Benedict Cumberbatch received an Oscar nomination for playing Alan Turing in 2014’s The Imitation Game, so it makes perfect sense that he’s seek out another movie with an awards-friendly premise where he gets to play a fascinating historical figure. The Current War gives him one hell of a role: Thomas Edison, the prolific American inventor and businessman responsible for the lightbulb, the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and countless other items we take for granted today (he held over 1,000 patents in the United States alone). And he was also something of a total dick, a subject that this film will undoubtedly explore.

Our first look at Cumberbatch as Edison in the film has arrived, so how about we take a look?

Ryan Gosling as Doctor Strange

Even though Marvel Studios ended up picking Benedict Cumberbatch to play the title role of Doctor Strange in the second theatrical release this year, there were several options that were on the table at various times. Actors like Joaquin Phoenix, Jared Leto and Ryan Gosling were once in the running, and now we get to see what it might have been like to have one of those actors wearing the cape of The Sorcerer Supreme.

Concept artist Court Chu has shared two pieces that he created when Marvel Studios was hoping to land Ryan Gosling as Doctor Strange. It sounds like maybe their desire was short-lived, or maybe Gosling quickly turned down the role, because he says, ““I worked probably not even a day on some version of Doctor Strange years ago, and back then they wanted Gosling.”
