Marvel Studio’s second offering for 2016 is reportedly living up to its title, according to ComicBook.com. As was seen in the teaser trailer released last week, the world of Doctor Strange is most definitely strange and weird with images of the world being over upon itself as well as the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) punching Stephen Strange’s astral form out of his body.
As the old saying goes, “You ain’t seen nuthin’ yet,” for apparently what we saw was merely the smallest of samplings of where this movie may yet go. Screenwriter C. Robert Carghill had this to say in a recent interview:
“You are only getting a small taste of just how crazy this movie gets. We have only just the slightest hints of magic in there. There are major characters you don’t even glimpse in that trailer, there is so much stuff going on, that this thing is just nutty, the stuff they let us do, I can’t believe they let us do it.”
He said that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and producer Stephen Broussard would push the writers to be “crazier” and “play around” on a constant basis.
Carghill also said that Marvel pushed them to “let the movie stand on its own,” and didn’t force in a lot of the connective or set-up tissue.
Doctor Strange, directed by Scott Dericksson, is in post-production now for a November 4, 2016 release.
