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.

At the end of the month, Doctor Strange comes to Blu-ray and DVD, but if you can’t wait until then, you’ll be able to download it before then on February 14. But before you can sit down and scrutinize every detail of Marvel’s mind-bending superhero origin story, the folks at How It Should Have Ended have taken on Scott Derrickson‘s mystical adventure.
When you’re dealing with mystical powers that operate even further into the fantastical world than most of the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, you’re bound to find more plot holes and fallacies in logic. That’s exactly what How It Should Have Ended calls attention to when they tackle Doctor Strange.

Scott Derrickson’s Doctor Strange has one of the most inventive and clever final showdowns of any superhero movie in recent memory (and we’re going right into spoiler territory here). Rather than exchange blows or magic blasts with Dormammu, the demon who has been lurking behind the scenes for the bulk of the film, Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Dr. Stephen Strange finds a more off-kilter way to battle his foe. It’s a hoot and further evidence that Strange will be a refreshing change of pace from the other MCU heroes.
And here’s some trivia for you: Dormammu was almost voiced by the great character actor Tony Todd, who actually recorded all of the character’s dialogue before the filmmakers opted for a different approach.

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.
