“Benedict has got an incredibly complicated emotional structure going on.”
Marvel Studios have released, via USA Today, a short behind-the-scenes featurette from the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Two Blu-ray box-set, which offers our first concept art of Benedict Cumberbatch as ‘Doctor Strange’ and more.
Director Scott Derrickson says that ‘Doctor Strange’ will be a “mind-trip action film.” “How do you put that on a screen within this cinematic universe? That is one of the primary goals of that movie,” Feige says.
“Doctor Strange” follows the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.
“Doctor Strange” is the latest film in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Phase 3’s goal—over the course of four years and nine films—is to introduce audiences to new heroes and continue the adventures of fan favorites.
Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” is produced by Kevin Feige with Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Charles Newirth, Stephen Broussard and Stan Lee serving as executive producers.
Director Scott Derrickson’s creative team also includes director of photography Ben Davis, B.S.C.
