Doctor Strange comes out in less than two weeks now, but the early buzz is already remarkably high for director Scott Derrickson‘s Marvel movie. Critics are embracing the origin story, which shares a few things in common with the likes of Batman Begins, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Iron Man. Doctor Strange is an exceptional origin story where the setup is as entertaining as the setpieces, but with Stephen Strange’s origin story now told, what’s next for the character?
Below, read what Scott Derrickson said about a Doctor Strange sequel.

Doctor Strange is my favorite Marvel comic book character, so I’ve spent the past year-plus in suspense, waiting to see how director Scott Derrickson was going to bring this admittedly (dare I say strange?) odd character to the big screen. A bad Doctor Strange movie would be, for me, about as heartbreaking as a bad movie where Batman and Superman and Wonder Woman team up to fight Doomsday. My soul couldn’t take another hit like that in 2016.
So the first wave of mostly positive reviews have been heartening, to say the very least. With these good vibes firmly in place, how about we check out four new TV spots for the film?

Last week brought the first reactions to Doctor Strange after press saw the movie before it hits international markets this coming week. Now the embargo has lifted on full reviews of Marvel’s latest addition to their cinematic universe, providing us with a much more detailed reception from critics.
The full Doctor Strange reviews paint a promising picture full of rich performances, dazzling visuals and some of the best action we’ve ever seen. However, these reviews also dive deeper into the movie’s shortcomings, mainly coming from treading familiar territory as another origin story and putting forth a lead character whose defining characteristics might be a little to close to the Marvel franchise that started this whole universe with Iron Man. But thankfully, Benedict Cumberbatch and director Scott Derrickson keep that from being too frustrating.
Check out some highlights from the Doctor Strange reviews after the jump. Read More »
We’re still a couple weeks out from seeing Doctor Strange in the United States, but next week brings the film to many international markets, and that means some spoilers will start to spill onto the web, including details on both of the credits scenes (which have been screened for press already).
We’ll be keeping any spoiler talk in check here at /Film so that you don’t have Doctor Strange ruined for you, and that includes knowledge of a certain character who survives the first movie and will be part of The Avengers: Infinity War. No we’re not talking about Doctor Strange himself, who has already been confirmed to appear along with the presumed assembly of every surviving character in the Marvel cinematic universe, but a supporting character.
So who is the Doctor Strange character appearing in The Avengers Infinity War? Find out below, but beware of slight spoilers. Read More »

Even though we won’t see Doctor Strange until November 4th here in the United States, the trailers have already indicated that Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) will quickly become a master of the mystical arts, despite the fact that he doesn’t really believe in all that spiritual nonsense at first. However, it appears some wires got crossed and Jimmy Kimmel thought Doctor Strange was just a magician who could entertain at a kid’s birthday party. While Strange does his best to put on a good show for the kids, he doesn’t really know how to deal with them properly.
See what happens when Jimmy Kimmel hires Doctor Strange after the jump. Read More »
