Update on Marvel’s Dr. Strange Movie


Marvel’s upcoming Dr. Strange movie is something we’re watching closely here because, well, we dig the character and it delves into the supernatural at times.

The last update we received, writers Thomas Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer turned in a draft and that script.  Domain names connected with Dr. Strange were being secured last fall.  The news has not been groundbreaking, but they’re definitely baby steps

The latest morsel of news comes via an interview with Sean Carroll, a theoretical physicist at the California Institute of Technology, who served as an advisor on the science behind Thor.  The interview was conducted over at io9 who dropped the following update.

Now that Carroll’s done with Thor, he’s moved on to Doctor Strange, about a surgeon who becomes earth’s Sorcerer Supreme. Carroll’s job is to apply limits to Strange’s powers. “You need constraints to provide tension,” he says. A world where anything can happen makes for a very boring movie. It’s when science imposes boundaries on what a superhero can do that the real drama begins.

Yeah, take that superheroes…drop some reality on your ass and give you limitations!  Ahem, more on Dr. Strange as it comes in.
