In perhaps Marvel’s most challenging film, concepts such as the multiverse, mirror dimensions and the astral plane are introduced into the MCU. The film’s subject matter leads John and Wai to have an unique conversation about mortality and lawfulness in their lives.
Plus, we discuss who Marvel considered for the titular role besides Benedict Cumberbatch, as well as the controversy surrounding the casting of Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One amidst accusations of Hollywood “whitewashing”.
Synopsis from Google:
Dr. Stephen Strange’s (Benedict Cumberbatch) life changes after a car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he looks for healing, and hope, in a mysterious enclave. He quickly learns that the enclave is at the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying reality. Before long, Strange is forced to choose between his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.
