This is one superhero film we have come to expect from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but Marvel Studios still continue to fascinate us with new concepts and takes on a worn-out genre. Doctor Strange, and its trippy, colourful presentation, is the latest film to hit theatres.
Starring megastar Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, The Hobbit trilogy) as the titular character, Doctor Stephen Strange, the film is not just another chapter in the cinematic universe; it has the responsibility of introducing the magical realm and the mystic arts to the otherwise sci-fi determined reality established through the previous films. Now, people of science like Tony Stark and Bruce Banner have to come to terms with this new possibility of infinite possibilities. Even Thor’s Asgardian world seemed more science-y than Doctor Strange’s world. Indeed, the world is about to get “Stranger”.
The film boasts of an incredible cast with phenomenal actors and actresses like Rachel McAdams (The Notebook, Spotlight), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Children of Men, 12 Years A Slave), Tilda Swinton (Burn After Reading, A Bigger Splash) and Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story).
