There can be no doubt that Marvel Studios are killing it at the moment. While arguably formulaic, the films are brilliant introductions to characters to those who are less aware of the long comic heritage of Marvel. Guardians of the Galaxy showed how a lesser known team can make for an astoundingly great film and I’ve heard nothing but good things about the latest release – Doctor Strange.
I was a bit sceptical when it was announced that the Sorcerer Supreme would be making a cinematic appearance – in a stand-alone movie no-less. Would the magical nature of the character jar in the – I won’t say “real” – let’s go with pseudo-scientific universe established by the films while retaining the core of the character and his origins? I’ve not seen Doctor Strange yet myself so I can’t comment on that. What I can comment on is this mash-up trailer put together by the good people over at Comedy Central. What if Doctor Strange was a member of the Avengers right now? How would that look. Here’s your answer:
Pretty cool huh?
