Marvel's Doctor Strange: Read the Comic & See It On the Big Screen

In summary, there is excitement for the upcoming Dr. Strange movie due to a love for the comic as a child. The hope is to see it on the big screen and potentially get back the comic collection that was discarded while in the Navy. There is also interest in the direction Marvel is taking with the supernatural and the casting of Benedict Cumberbatch as the lead. However, there is a slight concern that the ending may resemble the film Inception.

I read and loved the comic as a kid. Can't wait for this one on the big screen.
The only thing better would be to get my Dr. Strange comic collection back that my mom tossed while I was in the Navy.:H:cry:

I'm not familiar with the comic but it looks interesting. Of course I can't miss any Marvel films these days either...

Read the Dr.'s comics in the '60s. They were different. Michael Moorcock different.

Looks good from the little bit shown in the trailer. Marvel is delving deeper into the supernatural, Cumberbatch is a good choice for the character, if they write a good story to boot we might have ourselves a movie here. The ending shots were a little like Inception, though, in my opinion.
