D23 Expo: ‘Doctor Strange’ linked to ‘Ant-Man’ but like ‘Inception’ and the comic books

The D23 Expo offered Disney fans a great look at the studio’s upcoming project, but also a look at Doctor Strange, the new Marvel adaptation coming next year with Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular character.

Cumberbatch send a video message promising ““Girls, cars, explosions and a bit of astral projection into multiple dimensions. The usual fare.”

Marvel Studios Exec Kevin Feige noted that director Scott Derrickson won’t start filming until November and showeda reel of concept art and visual imagery, set to music, to give fans an idea of what to expect.

Strange’s origin story is very much intact from the comic books, with him originally having been an arrogant neurosurgeon in New York, who is horribly injured in a car accident, destroying his hands.

The art follows Strange to Asia, likely China, to learn the mystic arts from The Ancient One, played by Tilda Swinton.

Movie pilot noted the next set of  images of “cars and whole highways of vehicles floating in formation with no pavement [and] insane-looking buildings moving in warped patterns” suggesting a Christopher Nolan’s Inception feel.

Strange conjures his “magic” and shoots a yellow beam from his hands – pretty awesome.

Quoting Slash Film “There were very surreal-looking visions of planets and other sights that could be intergalactic, or simply other-dimensional. Think of the last major shrinking sequence from Ant-Man, which was clearly a lead-in to Strange, but on an even weirder scale.”

The images depicted Strange wearing his iconic red cape (with collar, no less), complete with his trademark greying temples  – all points to a feel classic feel for Stephen Strange.

Doctor Strange will arrive in theaters on October 26, 2016.
