Doctor Strange Director Reveals Which Prop He Took Home
Doctor Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum has numerous mystical relics, ancient tomes, and portals to other dimensions throughout its hallways, but there is one such relic that stands above them all, and it's probably no longer there.
That's because a certain director might have made off with it after filming wrapped on the film, that director being Scott Derrickson. In a recent interview, Derrickson was asked what magical item he would love to take home with him, and the choice was an easy one.
"The Eye of Agamotto. I do have the Eye of Agamotto by the way. I took it from the set. Yeah, it's in my house. It's mine. It's the one prop I took (laughs)."
Doctor Strange managed to bring in over $85 million in its first weekend debut and is expected to top the box office for a second week in a row, so Marvel is probably just fine with Derrickson taking home a keepsake.
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.
Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt, and Scott Adkins, with Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton. Scott Derrickson is directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Stephen Broussard, Charles Newirth and Stan Lee serve as executive producers. Jon Spaihts and Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill wrote the screenplay.
