2016’s massive hit, Captain America: Civil War, saw some of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most powerful players knock each other about in a fight of epic proportions! Of course, the two heaviest hitters who have found fame on the silver screen: Thor and the Hulk were nowhere to be seen. . To explain his absence, Marvel dropped Team Thor in the summer pairing up the God of Thunder with his roommate, Darryl Jacobson, and as luck would have it, the pair may be reuniting soon.  (more…)

Doctor Strange was a huge hit for Marvel Studios back in November, and that’s good because Marvel was in desperate need for a hit. Hah! Of course, they aren’t. Doctor Strange was the latest in a long line of successes for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, as it was expected to be, so when next might we see the good doctor? Surely another Marvel hero could use a hand in a mystic arts matter in the near future, right? Well, it turns out you’re correct. Dr. Strange will be appearing in a Marvel movie in 2017, and you can probably guess which one it is. (more…)

‘Doctor Strange’ Breaks Marvel Solo Record

Doctor Strange has just broken Marvel’s box office record, having earned a staggering $616 million worldwide (according to Box Office Mojo). It has topped The Incredible Hulk, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Thor, and is now Marvel Cinematic Universe’s highest grossing solo intro film since Iron Man. This is particularly impressive for a film whose main character was not necessarily that well-known before the film was released, unless perhaps you were a studious comic book reader. Marvel and Disney must be pretty happy right now.

After its first week in the US, Doctor Strange is already shattering expectations. You can check out our review for the movie here. The most recent Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) movie has already scored $85 million for its first weekend. Although it did not the previous MCU record set by Thor: The Dark World (which was $85.7 million), it’s still doing better than expected, and that doesn’t even count its global box office.

Nerd Bastards own Mel Valentin sure seemed to like Doctor Strange, but as the saying goes, “you can’t please everyone,” and it takes a special kind of bizarre disposition to look at a movie like Doctor Strange and label it “abhorrent.” That’s not a statement of quality though, that’s the way one critic is labeling the subject matter of Doctor Strange, a movie about a surgeon that takes up a new career in the exciting field of fighting extra-dimensional monsters and protecting the fabric or reality. Or as Dr. Ted Baehr calls it, “a dangerous introduction to demonic occult deception.” (more…)

Anyone who thinks – let alone imagines – that Stan Lee and Steve Ditko’s Doctor Strange, the latest entry in the ever-expanding Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) will revolutionize big-budget superhero-oriented blockbusters will be likely disappointed. Story wise, there’s nothing in Doctor Strange that can be described as revolutionary or even evolutionary, but that’s looking at Doctor Strange through one narrow lens, a lens that obviously ignores that film operates on a visual, cinematic level too and there, Doctor Strange succeeds beyond even the highest of expectations shared by comic-book fans and MCU fans (i.e., everyone else). Despite a sporadically intriguing, mid-level career as a genre filmmaker, Scott Derrickson (Deliver Us From Evil, Sinister, The Day the Earth Stood Still, The Exorcism of Emily Rose) has delivered a superhero entry bursting with visual ingenuity, creativity, and imagination unparalleled in superhero-themed filmmaking, in or out of the MCU, expanding the MCU into a multiplicity, into a multiverse of possibilities that will repay a near infinity of repeat visits.

Majestic, powerful, mysterious… The legacy of Doctor Strange is one that has remained unmarred for generations. A truly unique hero, his abilities are a mystery to even the most intelligent and well traveled of the Avengers. No matter how brilliantly intelligent or well versed in alien skills, there are some things they just can’t handle alone. As if he needed to be any more magnificent, the newest movie stars Benedict Cumberbath as the Doctor himself – a positively regal man who has stepped perfectly into the role of neurosurgeon turned legendary mystic artist.
