The upcoming Benedict Cumberbatch starrer Doctor Strange movie is the next in line, soon to be released Marvel movie, it has generated a lot of buzz among comic-book fans. It’s an origin story of a world famous surgeon turned master sorcerer whose life changed when he found the ancient one after he crippled his hands in an accident. Dr. Stephen Vincent Strange (created by Ditko and Lee in 1963) is searching for meaning in his life, exploring different possibilities that could determine his fate. He spent years trying to find a miracle treatment that would fix his predicament, eventually wound up at Tibet. Consequently, he shunned conventional medicine and embraced sorcery and mysticism, joined the order.
We always knew that Mads Mikkelson is playing the antagonist in the movie, in an interview with Yahoo, Mads Mikkelson said:
“If you look at the comic books, the comic books are quite different. I think that the film will be different from the other [Marvel] films that we’ve seen, but not as different as the books are because that was basically the ‘60s and ‘70s – it was more like an acid trip.”
“So you still have the energy, you still have the colors, you still have the madness, but you also have something you can identify with. I think that was a necessity – if not, you would just make a crazy film. But you still have it there – you have all the action, all the good ingredients you get in a Marvel film, but it will have a different flavor, that’s for sure.”
He further said “He’s not a villain in that way – he’s a man who believes in something else than the hero. That doesn’t mean that he doesn’t want to make the planet look wonderful or he wants to save the world as well, but he has a different way of doing it. He is the antagonist, of course, but he’s not necessarily wrong.”
Well, now we know Dormammu is going to appear in Dr. Strange as it was accidently revealed by Dan Harmon (the creative consultant) that he is part of a scene in the movie. He is a classic villain of Doctor Strange who has the mystical powers to conquer other universes and dimensions. He is a mutant member of an extra-dimensional society called Faltine. The question is Will he have just a cameo or Is he the big villain?
The movie is set to release on November 4, 2016.
