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

The world of Harry Potter is rather mundane and regimented. Magic is bound up by rules and regulations, while witches and warlocks wear gowns and mortar boards like Oxford dons. That is the polar opposite of the chaotic, mystical universe Doctor Strange inhabits. Maybe Yates can make the transition and adapt the outre visions created by Lee & Ditko for the film, but it would be a stretch, IMO.

We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
