Kevin Feige talks ‘Doctor Strange’ his ‘unique’ powers and Eye of Agamotto

Marvel made a splash with their exclusive look at Doctor Strange, revealing Benedict Cumberbatch’s character in action and some details in the new EW article.

Kevin Feige offered up official details from Marvel Studios speaking with Entertainment Weekly, particularly about his powers.

“He does cast spells, which in the comics have very sort of tongue-twisty fun names. We don’t want to shy away from that, because that’s what makes Doctor Strange Doctor Strange. He has a Cloak of Levitation that allows him to fly, but he doesn’t fly like Superman or like Thor. It’s almost got a consciousness of its own, this cloak, which, again, gives us a superhero with a red cape — which we’ve seen a few times — but allows us to do it in a wholly unique and wholly original way. He can create these mandalas of light that he can use as shields and he can use as sort of weapons. He can create portalas that will open before your eyes that he can step through and go to other places around the world. And frankly, even in this film, we’ll only touch upon what a lot of his powers are.”

Director Scott Derrickson (Sinister) will helm the film, the first to deal with bizarre aspects of Marvel’s comic book universe, like the mystical Eye of Agamotto, which is a part of the Strange’s powers,

“In this film, the Eye is a very important relic that can be quite dangerous if used in the wrong hands, because it has the ability to do any number of things, the most dangerous of which is, it can sort of manipulate probabilities. Which is also another way of saying, ‘screw around with time’ — which is part of our story.”

Some fans have speculated that the Eye of Agamotto could turn out to be one of the Infinity Stones, and the theory doesn’t seem too far-fetched considering Marvel is working towards Avengers: Infinity War in 2018 and 2019.

Doctor Strange is currently shooting. The film opens in theaters November 4, 2016.
