Scott Derrickson’s cinematic take on the Sorcerer Supreme had an impressive run at the box office before it finally arrived on home video. Despite the character not being as popular as Spider-Man, the X-Men, or the Avengers, Benedict Cumberbatch’s portrayal of Stephen Strange was yet another hit for Marvel Studios.

From Marvel Studios comes Doctor Strange, the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place – a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long, Strange – armed with newly acquired magical powers – is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.
