Just when you thought the first taste of Doctor Strange’s debut solo outing was looking weird enough, it seems that Marvel are keeping their secrets hidden, and the film itself will raise the crazy bar even further… it’s gonna be trip, dude.
Speaking to The Sunday Service podcast, the film’s screenwriter Robert C Cargill has said that what we’ve seen so far in the first teaser trailer is actually very little.
“This teaser is, it’s the definition of a teaser,” he says, while also trying very hard to not give anything away. “You are only getting a small taste of just how crazy this movie gets.”
We like the sound of that.
“We have only just the slightest hints of magic in there. There are major characters you don’t even glimpse in that trailer, there is so much stuff going on, that this thing is just nutty, the stuff they let us do, I can’t believe they let us do it.”
Praising the team over at Marvel, Cargill continues “Kevin Feige and the other producers like Stephen Broussard would be ‘How can we make it crazier?’ and I was like ‘Aw right, let’s play around.’ It’s just a hell of an experience.”
It is now being speculated that Marvel have intentionally played down the crazy level in this first trailer, so as to not take away from Captain America: Civil War, which will no doubt have the trailer attached to it.
And could we maybe see the good doctor making a special cameo appearance somewhere in Cap’s third outing? Time will tell, but it would get us all very excited if we were to get the first glimpse of Benedict Cumberbatch in the MCU in one of the now infamous post credit stings.
Doctor Strange will be conjured into cinemas on the 4th November.
