In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson and lead Benedict Cumberbatch dropped some new details about the film.
Cumberbatch on the character of Stephen Strange:
“This man reaches the very bottom and then more. You think, How much more can this guy take? He’s broken, he gets up again, he’s broken — and that’s really what makes him a superhero. A lot of people have asked me, ‘What makes him a superhero?’ That’s really the answer I should have given. It’s not the Cloak of Levitation. It’s not the Eye of Agamotto. It’s about his staying power. It’s a marathon and not a sprint. The guy endures so much.”
Derrickson on the unique visuals, story and overall ambition of the movie:
“The ambition was to use cutting-edge visual effects to do things that are fresh and new — to not just blow things up… All I will say is that the movie deals heavily with other dimensions.”
Along with these quotes regarding the movie, some new images were released. Check ’em out below.
“Marvel’s Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.”
Doctor Strange hits theaters on November 4.
