    Looks perfect. But I don't know anything about Strange. Never read a single page of comics featuring him. Just saw some pics.

    well that 1978 movie is a way to get a quick run down. Tho it lacks alot of the actual mythos of the comics in some ways

    That 2nd poster I especially love, but both promotional pieces are very cool. Can't wait for this movie. It is going to be such a trip watching it all unfold with all it's crazy effects.

    Finished reading Oath. Pretty fun stuff. Involves pretty much the cast from the movie. And even a scene of Night Nurse reviving Strange. The page with "that's why I never joined Avengers" is LMAO.

    Overall, pretty short and sweet introduction to the characters.

    They really have got this costume right. Glad they didn't downplay it.

    Well the Doc Strange "the Zealot" Prelude comic is out and nothing on the markings on his forehead IN the comic. I guess we'll have to wait for the movie. You DO see similar symbols all through the comic book but as magic and in books

    Especially with the origin story involved. Still hope they give Mads enough screen time too and not cut some of his scenes.

    What's enough ?

    I mean origin stories should never be too much about the villains imo.
    Batman Begins was mostly about Batmans story (villains were not the focus and just served for Batman to shine). Same goes for most origin stories. The sequels is when you explore the villains.

    I feel like people will moan about this films villain no matter what.
    One of the two (hero and villain) is going to be underdeveloped regardless so I'd rather they focus on the heroes story for its first film.

    My hope is that Mads stays on and is fully featured in the sequel alongside Mordo. Show Strange's origin and how he becomes Sorcerer Supreme by the end while building the villains slowly towards the end and letting them shine in the sequel. I would really hate if they kill him off with this film.

    Enough to make him somewhat memorable, but I pretty much agree with everything you said.

    I'm also not one of those who think the MCU really has a villain problem.

    But nothing about why he has it on his head in the movie. WE can guess why after reading the book, but, the others here might not yet know why. lol
