It’s our latest glimpse into the world of the calculating consulting detective, and we can see that this time around things are going to be a lot darker in tone.

With Toby jones’ Culverton Smith to contend with, could this be one mystery too many for Baker Street’s finest?

Doctor Strange has always been a trippy comic book. Back in the 60’s legendary Marvel artist Steve Ditko took readers to places only found in dreams and nightmares. Strange places that defied logic and normalcy, it was almost like Ditko was trying to visually depict a psychedelic acid trip. In this latest Doctor Strange Featurette, Kevin Feige, Scott Derrickson and Benedict Cumberbatch talk about translating Ditko’s artistic style to the big screen and how Doctor Strange fits into the larger Marvel universe.
