As the next Marvel movie on deck, "Doctor Strange" is getting a full PR push ahead of its November release. Just in the last week we've seen TV spots focusing on Strange's time travel and his Cloak of Levitation and a whole lot of motion posters featuring the film's cast. Now, USA Today has posted a new featurette focusing on the film and its relation to the comics.
"It is strange in a way I suppose -- no pun intended -- that he's flown under the radar until now in the Marvel Cinematic Universe because he is a very big presence in the comics," said Cumberbatch. Feige also talks about Strange and his role as the introduction to Marvel's supernatural side -- a side that has yet to be explored in a Marvel Studios film.
Feige also praises Cumberbatch in the role, as does co-star Rachel McAdams. "[Cumberbatch's] transformation into Strange is really extraordinary," said McAdams. "He just automatically displays such fierce intelligence. He seems to have slipped into that character really easily and nicely."
Directed by “Sinister’s” Scott Derrickson and starring Cumberbatch, McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor and more, “Doctor Strange” opens on November 4, 2016.
