The Marvel universe is about to get mystical as Doctor Strange will introduce the mystical arts as well as alternate realities into the MCU. While magic has already been introduced to us in the form of Scarlet Witch (Elizabeth Olsen), this film is going to be some serious next level stuff.
The featurette focuses on how Marvel has adapted the incredible artwork for Doctor Strange by Steve Ditko for an immersive IMAX experience in the cinema.
Dr. Stephen Strange was severely injured in an auto accident permanently damaging the nerves in his hands. He was able to heal but not well enough to ever perform surgery again. After traveling the world in search of a healer, he discovered The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) in Tibet to which he offered himself as a disciple—becoming earth’s next magical defender.
The film’s director Scott Derrickson also tweeted a picture today of a new banner on display in China.
Doctor Stranger hits theaters November 4, 2016.
