Default Re: What "style" should the Dr. Strange movie be?

As far as the style of Doctor Strange is concerned, what I want to see is a Ditkoesque panoply encompassing all of the bizarre, unique character designs and dizzying landscapes Steve Ditko created in the original Strange Tales run of Doctor Strange. The film needs to have that kind of disorienting feel, wherein the weird and the malformed seem commonplace. It should have a dark yet colorful palette, with the vibrant hues of the rest of the MCU subdued. Red becomes crimson, blue becomes midnight. Also, all of the odd creatures like Nightmare, Dormammu, the Unspeakable Umar and the Living Tribunal should be lurking at the edges, feared and alluded to even if not actually seen.

In short, I want to see this:

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
