Avenger Visits Comic Book Store

Scott Derickson, the director of the Dr. Strange movie, shared a video from the set on Twitter. In between filming, Benedict Cumberbatch visited a comic book store.

The similarity is undeniable.

Almost four years have passed since the world premiere of Doctor Strange, one of the typical superhero origin movie from Marvel Cinematic Universe. The title character is played by the British actor known for his role of Sherlock Holmes in the BBC series, Benedict Cumberbatch. The movie was received positively by fans and critics alike.

The director, Scott Derrickson, decided to boast of a backstage recording on hisTwitter. It shows Cumberbatch entering an American comic book store in his superhero costume. There he interacts with the staff, comparing his face to Dr. Strange's comic book version. This action was initiated by Derrickson and he didn't have to persuade the actor long.

We could also follow the character of Stephen Strange in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. He quickly became a fan favorite and the object of many memes. At this moment the sequel to the movie, titled Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness was confirmed. The name itself indicates that Marvel will finally want to introduce the concept of the multiverse, i.e. the phenomenon of parallel worlds, intertwining with each other. We could see similar practices in CW series like Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow.

It is also known that Scott Derrickson will not return to the role of a director due to internal disputes with the studio. This is sad news, considering the high level of the original, although the creator will be replaced by a silent legend of superhero cinema - Sam Raimi. If you don't associate him by name, it's enough to quote Spider-Man film trilogy with Toby Maguire in the lead role. A real classic of the genre. Dr. Strange's sequel was supposed to make its debut in 2021, but due to the coronavirus pandemic we will see it in March 2022.

His adventure with journalism began with a personal blog, the name of which is no longer worth quoting. Then he interpreted Iranian dramas and the Joker, writing for cinematography journal, which, sadly, no longer exists. His writing credentials include a degree in film studies, but his thesis was strictly devoted to video games. He has been writing for Gamepressure since March 2020, first writing a lot about movies, then in the newsroom, and eventually, he became a specialist in everything. He currently edits and writes articles and features. A long-time enthusiast of the most bizarre indie games and arthouse cinema. He idolizes surrealism and postmodernism. He appreciates the power of absurdity. Which is probably why he also tried soccer refereeing for 2 years (with so-so results). He tends to over-philosophize, so watch out.
