It would come as no surprise if it’s announced that the upcoming Marvel Studios movie Doctor Strange were rated PG-13.

There are some great shots of his costume, which is very cool and quite in line color-wise with the comic book version. (more…)

Director Scott Derrickson is wasting no time getting right to it in Nepal where this picture originates. Prayush Khadka snapped and posted the shot. We’re not sure if Khadka is just a passerby or works on, or around the set where filming is taking place. Check out the picture below.
