With Marvel's Doctor Strange releasing in theaters soon, fans will finally get to see another one of Stan Lee's classic comic book creations come to life on the big screen.
So far, Doctor Strange is pulling in positive reviews as Marvel Studios takes their very first leap into adapting such a mystical, mind-bending comic into an MCU film.
In a recent interview with Parade, Stan Lee was asked which superheroes he would like to have dinner with and he surprisingly didn't say Spider-Man.
“I’d probably enjoy talking to Iron Man. I’d like to talk to Doctor Strange. I like the Silver Surfer. Iron Man is sort of a classier Donald Trump, if you can imagine that sort of thing. The Silver Surfer is always philosophical; he comments about the world and man’s position in the universe, why we don’t enjoy living on this wonderful planet and why we don’t help each other."
Of course he chose Doctor Strange, maybe he can asking him to explain excatly how the entire universe works. Iron Man would make for a rather intelligent dinner conversation, and it would just be off to see The Silver Surfer glide into a restaurant with metallic skin.
“But I only wrote about these characters fighting and having problems. I never really did many episodes where they were eating, so I don’t even know how their table manners are,” Lee added.
From Marvel 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. Join Strange on his dangerous, mystifying, and totally mind-bending journey.
The cast features Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, Star Into Darkness, The Imitation Game), Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave), Rachel McAdams (Sherlock Holmes), Michael Stuhlbarg (A Serious Man), Mads Mikkelsen (Casino Royale) and Tilda Swinton (The Grand Budapest Hotel).
Marvel's Doctor Strange will open in theaters on November 4, 2016.
