We’ve seen what Doctor Strange looks like, but what is the Sorcerer Supreme capable of?
Producer Kevin Feige shared some details about the extent of Doctor Strange’s mystical powers, though he teased that what we see in the film is only the start.
“He can do a whole host of things, eventually,” Feige tells Entertainment Weekly. “He does cast spells, which in the comics have very sort of tongue-twisty fun names. We don’t want to shy away from that, because that’s what makes Doctor Strange Doctor Strange. He has a Cloak of Levitation that allows him to fly, but he doesn’t fly like Superman or like Thor. It’s almost got a consciousness of its own, this cloak, which, again, gives us a superhero with a red cape — which we’ve seen a few times — but allows us to do it in a wholly unique and wholly original way. He can create these mandalas of light that he can use as shields and he can use as sort of weapons. He can create portalas that will open before your eyes that he can step through and go to other places around the world. And frankly, even in this film, we’ll only touch upon what a lot of his powers are.”
That sounds like quite a portfolio of powers, and it will be interesting to see how each of them manifest on screen.
