    Of all the MCU movies that I've been anticipating the most (aside from Civil War), this is it. And it looks awesome! :woot:

    I really want to see this movie. Not because of Cumberbatch, but because I'm intrigued by the plot, and Mads Mikkelsen is a phenomenal actor.

    But yeah, I need to see something where I actually enjoyed Cumberbatch's role and acting.

    I expected cap3 to be fantastic but I expected this to be just as good. this movie is really setting up the tail end of all phase 3 and I think the intro to phase 4. it allows them to bring in extra-dimensional enemies into future conflicts. outsider forces not just from space. should be really cool what they do during dr. strange and everything they do afterwards.

    Saw trailer. Awwww yiss.

    Not 100% sure on Hufflepuff Bandersnatch's American accent, but we've only heard a few lines. I'm sure it'll be fine.

    Stephen Strange and Peter Parker played by Brits. Captain America opening in London before the US. I think someone in Marvel/Disney is a fan of my rain-sodden set of islands!

    Trailer looks dope and I'm in, but why in the hell is Tilda Swinton the Ancient One?! I mean WTF?! Why not go get the old guy from Kill Bill? He would have been perfect...

    You mean Gordon Liu? Sadly, after a stroke in 2011, he's been completely out of the spotlight ever since. :(

    Also, this isn't the first time MCU's tinkered with gender swapping. Jeri Hogarth from Jessica Jones got the same treatment, with Carrie Anne Moss playing the character.

    And besides, it's Tilda Swinton. She can play practically anyone.
    I'm hyped for this! I don't know much about Dr Strange but trailer looks cool, and promising cast~

    Am I the only one that thought Tilda looked pretty attractive with a shaved head?

    I feel like my enjoyment of Dr. Strange comes solely from sharing a surname...

    That said, Benedict Cumberbatch = Yes.

    Saw the film late last night. It's not groundbreaking as it's got the same issues as all the Phase 1 MCU origin films, and a few other narrative problems, but damn I still enjoyed the hell out of it.

    Phase 3 is opening up to some amazing possibilities that I'm certainly looking forward to.

    An army of faceless bad guys facing off against one protagonist in a neat, ~2 hour story, and when it's all over you realized it felt like there was nothing at stake?

    Saw twice already,the first night showing, and later today with my office mates.
    Upon seeing the second time, I agree that the origin story build-up kinda felt rushed, but as the story progresses, it's awesomeness all the way. Benedict fits the character so much, the moment you see
    him shaving that trademark facial hair
    I almost screamed like a lil bitch!! worth a trip to the cinema, don't forget the two post credit scenes too!!

    I saw it the other day. Liked it. I went in not knowing anything about the character


    Story wise it's not Shakespeare but I liked the vibe of it and the visuals were amazing in parts.

    FTFY. :yesway:

    At this point in time, all the MCU movies are at least solid at worst, even the ones that don't work. And their flaws are more interesting to talk about rather than saying, it's MCU, it's awesome routine.

    Ok yes, Doctor Strange has it's issues, namely that it's in a rush to get to the action scenes, while amazing, could do a little less of, thanks to the nature of the character and lore. I still think it's a great movie, more in line with Ant Man and just above the underrated first Thor. The action scenes are the most creative and dazzling to date (saw it again in 3D last night), and all the cast really bring their characters to life (yes Tilda Swinton does a great Tripitaka-esque job with The Ancient One).
