Kevin Feige talks tone and magic of Doctor Strange

March 13th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Kevin Feige has made no secret of his love for Doctor Strange. He recently spoke with Badass Digest at the Captain America: The Winter Soldier press day and explained that the vibe that they’re going for with Doctor Strange.

The goal is:

 “a Ditko/Kubrick/Miyazaki/The Matrix mind-trip.”

Feige also explained how the Sorcerer Supreme will introduce magic. Something not yet seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe:

“Are you watching the ‘Cosmos’ series? That’s magic. It’s unbelievable. If somebody knew how to tap into that stuff, what’s the difference between that and magic? You don’t get into it in ‘Harry Potter,’ but if a scientist went to Hogwarts, he’d find out how some of that stuff is happening! And particularly for a character like Strange, who goes from a man of science to a man of faith and who traverses both worlds.”

The Sorcerer Supreme won’t be the only wielder of magic though, as Avengers: Age of Ultron will introduce the Scarlet Witch. Perhaps she will not be a student of magic yet, and only rely on her powers.
