The Doctor Strange movie is about to hit theaters in a few months, and many are anticipating the weirdest film that Marvel ever made.
The movie will not make sense if there will be no oddness in it. For starters, Doctor Strange, played by British actor Benedict Cumberbatch, is a magician. He draws his powers from mystical entities such as the Agamotto, Oshtur, Cyttorak, Ikonn, Raggadorr and Watoomb. He can also manipulate mystical artifacts such as the Cloak of Levitation and the Eye of Agamotto. With all of these at his disposal, it means things will be getting weirder in the MCU.
Magic and sorcery are Strange’s specialties, hence the movie is definitely packed with events that are beyond the usual. Movie Pilot noted that the superhero deals with magically themed threats that no other hero in the MCU can tackle. He is also expected to explore multiple universes.
Director Scott Derrickson has earlier confirmed all these weirdness in the Doctor Strange movie. “This is the movie where Marvel goes full weird,” he told ComicBook.com. He added that Doctor Strange is going to be the beginning of the Marvel Cinematic Multiverse.
In the recent San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel also released the Doctor Strange movie trailer. It showed a city-warping scene, which could be just a prelude of the strange things the movie is set to showcase in November.

There have been rumors that Jericho Drumm, a.k. a. Brother Voodoo, will be having a cameo role in the movie. Apparently, this is to add more mysticism to the film.
Scott Derickson’s film also stars Rachel McAdams, who will play a surgeon who has a history with Strange. Other cast members include Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Michael Stuhlbarg and Mads Mikkelsen.
