Doctor Strange and Christine Palmer

Although Doctor Strange is the 14th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe franchise, all of its core characters are new to the big screen. Sure, comic book fans might know about the Sorcerer Supreme or the Ancient One already, and sure, even casual moviegoers are probably familiar with the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton. But what will Cumberbatch be like as Stephen Strange, or Chiwetel Ejiofor as Mordo? A new featurette offers a closer look at some of the performances we can look forward to seeing in the movie.

Meanwhile, there’s also some news about one character we won’t be seeing in Doctor Strange. Ever since we learned Rachel McAdams would be playing Christine Palmer, fans have wondered if she might take on her comic book alter ego, Night Nurse. However, Kevin Feige has now shot down that rumor in no uncertain terms.  Read More »

Doctor Strange Sneak Preview

We’re less a month out from the release of Doctor Strange and I don’t know about you guys, but I’m feeling pretty good about this one. Stephen Strange has been one of my favorite comic book characters for a long time, I’ve enjoyed the past work of director Scott Derrickson, and Marvel is still riding high from Captain America: Civil War, a movie that works about as well as a superhero movie possibly can. Plus, Marvel keeps on sending me and my fellow film writer colleagues those checks every month, allowing me to continue surrounding myself with solid gold Ferraris and diamond-encrusted toilet seats and what-not.

I kid, of course. I’m a writer. I live in a cardboard box. How about a new Doctor Strange international trailer to tide us over for the next few weeks?
