Doctor Strange wrapped principal photography back in April, where Benedict Cumberbatch spent part of his last day of shooting making a surprise appearance at a comic book shop in his full Sorcerer Supreme wardrobe. However, just recently when a rumor popped up about a potential cameo from one of The Avengers in Doctor Strange, it appeared as if some additional photography was done as recently as this month, thanks to an update to Twitter by co-star Benedict Wong.
Now we have confirmation that new scenes for Doctor Strange were recently completed, and the scenes in question were actually last minute additions written by Community and Rick and Morty creator Dan Harmon.

If you thought the visual effects in that last Doctor Strange trailer were mindbending in 2D, wait until you experience them in 3D. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige says that sequences of Doctor Strange require 3D to “tell the dimensional story.” So how will the story translate when downgraded to traditional 2D projection? Find out about the Doctor Strange 3D, after the jump.

The first Doctor Strange trailer was all about table setting, introducing a lesser known (to non-geek crowds) Marvel superhero to the unwashed masses. The new trailer, which premiered at the Marvel Studios panel at Comic-Con 2016, goes all in with the big action and crazy images. This movie looks nuts…but nuts enough to break the usual Marvel mold? Let’s take a closer look.

In a few months, Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) will have his world turned upside down, both metaphorically and literally. Today at Comic-Con, Marvel presented the second trailer for director Scott Derrickson‘s (Sinister) origin story. The trailer has now made its way online, which continues to tease a potential head trip of a comic book picture.
Below, watch the new Doctor Strange trailer.

Ever since the first trailer for Doctor Strange debuted, controversy about whitewashing in Hollywood has been swirling online again. This came about because it was confirmed that actress Tilda Swinton was playing the role of The Ancient One, a character who was originally an Asian man in the comic books. Many Asian actors, actresses, filmmakers and fans have spoken out against this casting, saying that it plays into the tendency Hollywood has to have white actors and actresses in the roles of characters of different ethnic backgrounds. Tilda Swinton previously responded to the matter, and now Marvel Studios president CEO and Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson have chimed in on the matter.
Find out what they had to say about the Doctor Strange whitewashing controversy below. Read More »

Captain America: Civil War will probably be pretty great, but if I could only see one Marvel superhero movie this year, it would be Doctor Strange. Part of this is because I have an affinity for the character, who is one of my favorite comic book heroes of all time. However, it’s also hard to say no to a superhero movie that takes a hard left turn into the realm of the mystical and the magical, which sounds like a refreshing change of pace. And that’s before you even talk about the cast that director Scott Derrickson has assembled, which includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Benedict Wong.
The first teaser trailer for Doctor Strange arrived late last night, so you know what that means – a frame-by-frame breakdown of the new footage.

Over half a century after he was first introduced in the pages of Strange Tales #110, Doctor Strange is finally conjuring up his first live-action big-screen feature this fall. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the surgeon-turned-sorcerer, while director Scott Derrickson works his magic behind the camera. And although Doctor Strange will be the 14th film in the overarching Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’ll be the first to dive deep into the psychedelic, mystical outer reaches of that universe.
Which is a roundabout way of saying it’s been tough to guess exactly what Doctor Strange might look like — but now we no longer have to. Marvel Studios dropped the very first Doctor Strange trailer on Jimmy Kimmel Live! tonight, and you can feast your eyes on it after the jump.

Over the weekend, production wrapped on Marvel’s forthcoming mystic comic book flick Doctor Strange. There have been some set photos making the rounds, but since copyrights can be tricky for those kind of images we won’t post them here.
But what we can post are some images that a comic book store manager posted when Benedict Cumberbatch decided to pay a visit while still in his full Doctor Strange wardrobe. Plus, Marvel posted a picture of Cumberbatch in the shop with comic book in hand. See the Doctor Strange photos below! Read More »

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.

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.
