doctor strange sanctum sanctorum

Every superhero has a place where they can take a load off, put up their feet, and get away from the world for a little while. Batman has the Batcave, Superman the Fortress of Solitude. Across the aisle, Thor can chill out in Asgard, Tony Stark in Avengers Tower, and Spider-Man in Aunt May’s second bedroom. However, the coolest secret lair/base of operations in all of Marvel-dom has always been Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum, a house that is filled with countless magical items and magical artifacts and all of the perils that accompany keeping those items in one place.

We already received one glimpse of what this place will look like in Scott Derrickson‘s upcoming Doctor Strange movie back when the first photos of Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme were released. Now, Marvel has released another glimpse at this mystical manor and it may look a little familiar to seasoned comic book fans.

Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange (header)

Marvel can take big swings these days. This year, they turned Ant-Man — a character most people are hardly familiar with — into a box-office hit, following the massively successful and equally obscure Guardians of the Galaxy. When Marvel’s name is on a film, people will show up, which is why it’s the perfect time to introduce Doctor Strange. Director Scott Derrickson (Sinister) can get weird with this comic book adaptation, and from the sound of it, that’s what he’s doing.

After the jump, read Marvel’s CEO Kevin Feige‘s comments on just how strange (not a bad pun, I promise) of a comic book movie Doctor Strange might be. He also gets into the character’s unique abilities and accessories — like the Eye of Agamotto, which could turn out to be very important to the MCU later on.

Doctor Strange

We’ve spent the past couple of weeks gorging ourselves on new footage, photos, and details from Captain America: Civil War, due out next summer. But Marvel’s other big theatrical release of 2016, Doctor Strange, remains shrouded in mystery. Not only is the character brand-new to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he represents a more mystical side of the MCU that hasn’t been explored too deeply in the films so far.

Shooting on Doctor Strange has only just begun, so it’ll likely be a long while before we get a real trailer. But to tide us over in the meantime, director Scott Derrickson and producer Kevin Feige have dropped a few hints about what we have to look forward to — including a first peek at some Doctor Strange concept art. Check it out after the jump.  Read More »

Doctor Strange 2

Marvel Studios has officially announced the start of production on Doctor Strange… three weeks after the first set photos surfaced on the web. Yeah, we were already onto you, Marvel.

Disney and Marvel kicked off day two of the D23 Expo 2015 with a presentation for Doctor Strange, complete with a video call-in from star Benedict Cumberbatch and a showcase of production art and animatics provided by director Scott Derrickson, who is in London prepping the movie .
