The writer of Doctor Strange (2016) has unveiled Kevin Feige’s only request for the script of the first film with Benedict Cumberbatch.
The first film by Doctor Strange (2016) gave the possibility to Marvel Studios to expand that territory which until then had remained unexplored in Marvel Cinematic Universe, opening the doors to the supernatural, mystical and psychedelic side of comics. Despite the strong visual impact scenes in the film, it seems that initially the cinecomic starring Benedict Cumberbatch did not focus enough on the craziest and most bizarre elements of the character’s stories.
During a promotional interview with /Movie concerning horror The Black Phone, C. Robert Cargillscreenwriter of the first film on the Supreme Sorcerer as well as trusted collaborator of Scott Derricksonspoke about his experience on the film, revealing what was the only request from the president of Marvel Studios Kevin Feige during the script review phase:
“… for Doctor Strange, I wrote multiple drafts of the script over nine months for a myriad of reasons. Not because it wasn’t good enough, but always because I was asked, ‘Can we do better? Can we do this? Can we change this? We have another movie that will do a similar thing. ‘ It’s always about create something that fits into its own space in the MCU, which is not a carbon copy of something else. “
“AND Marvel fought for this as much as we did. I mean, the best thing I can say about Marvel is that every time we delivered a draft, Kevin Feige used to say ‘This is great. Can we make it more bizarre? ‘ and we were like, ‘Sure, we can make it more bizarre. ‘”
We remember that Doctor Strange (2016), written by C. Robert Cargill and directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister), sees in the cast Benedict Cumberbatch (Stephen Strange / Doctor Strange), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Karl Mordo), Rachel McAdams (Christine Palmer), Benedict Wong (Wong), Mads Mikkelsen (Kaecilius), Tilda Swinton (Ancient), Michael Stuhlbarg (Nicodemus West) e Benjamin Bratt (Jonathan Pangborn).
