The days of superhero films having issues attracting A-list talent to be in their films are long gone, and the cast of Doctor Strange is a testament to this.
In the newest featurette for the upcoming film, stars like Benedict Cumberbatch (Doctor Strange, Tilda Swinton (The Ancient One), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Karl Mordo), Rachel McAdams (Christine Palmer), and Benedict Wong (Wong) share their thoughts on the talented gathering.
Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige starts things off though and has nothing but positive things to say. "Well you look at the cast of Doctor Strange led by Benedict Cumberbatch, and it is an embarrassment of riches. Cumberbatch echoed his sentiments, saying "It's utterly inspiring, the cast of this film."
Rachel McAdams describes her character and her past with Stephen Strange. "I play Christine Palmer, an ER trauma doctor. Stephen and Christine were involved in this relationship and then as his life starts to fall apart their relationship becomes much more strained. Being able to work with all these amazing actors just raises the stakes. I mean Tilda looks incredible as the Ancient One."
