Doctor Strange is the latest movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and is easily one of the most fascinating portrayals of a Marvel character yet. Benedict Cumberbatch plays Doctor Stephen Strange who is a former neurosurgeon who is schooled in the ways of magic and mysticism. It’s a really trippy and far out movie that is a far cry from the standard cookie-cutter superhero movie that Marvel has produced in recent years.

If you’ve soured on the Marvel movies because of that, give Doctor Strange a chance because you’re going to be pleasantly surprised. The action and the visual effects were brilliant and the movie received an Academy Award nomination for Best Visual Effects. Cumberbatch and Tilda Swinton are together on screen and this movie totally exceeded expectations.
