Marvel gets mystical in the latest entry in its cinematic universe. Not quite as widely recognised as the heroes from the Avengers series but still with a cult following, Doctor Strange deals with magical rather than physical threats to the world. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the world’s top neurosurgeon, Stephen Strange, who, after a car accident leaves him unable to work, goes in search of a way of healing. On his journey he meets the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) who becomes his guide in the mystic arts and he soon becomes a powerful sorcerer. No doubt the movie will lay down some initial groundwork for the future all-encompassing Avengers: Infinity War team-up movies but whether its nods, cameos and Easter eggs will have fans excitedly waiting for the next movie remains to be seen. With the current track record of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, both in movies and the excellent Netflix tie-ins, it’s doubtful Doctor Strange is going to disappoint.
