Doctor Strange wordt psychedelisch


Marvels Phase Three gaat in mei van start met de film Captain America: Civil War. Deze wordt opgevolgd door Doctor Strange in november. In een interview sprak Director of Photography Ben Davis over de film:

”It has a very psychedelic grounding, and it’s not your typical Marvel action movie. Most of the work within it is about other dimensions. And I described it, I think, when I was talking to Marvel as Marvel’s Fantasia, in a way, because it’s so sort of out there and different to everything else that they’ve done. There’s a lot of previsualisation, and there’s a lot of work which is very hard – you look at it and you see the imagery that they’ve created for it and you think, ‘well how the hell do we shoot that!?’ because it’s all sort of Escher stuff. It’s all very out there. I can’t really say much more about it, I’m afraid. But I think it’ll be really interesting, and it’s a very dark movie, I’m pleased to say.”

Doctor Strange wordt geregisseerd door Scott Derrickson. Het scenario is geschreven door Jon Spaihts. Hoofdrollen zijn er voor Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor en Rachel McAdams.
