We have already seen big critical and commercial success of Marvel this year and this autumn we are going to see Doctor Strange introduced to audiences for the first time.
Yes, another Marvel movie is on the horizon and Doctor Strange is one of a string of new franchises that will be heading our way over the next few years.
This is one of the autumn movies that I am looking forward to the most and Doctor Strange looks set to mix elements of fantasy, sci-fi, and action and adventure and we will see Benedict Cumberbatch step into the superhero genre for the first time.
Cumberbatch will take on the central role of Dr. Stephen Strange and it looks like it is going to be a perfect piece of casting. Cumberbatch is no stranger to the blockbuster genre with Star Trek Into Darkness and The Hobbit trilogy under his belt, but this is one of the biggest film roles of his career.
The movie sees Cumberbatch team up with filmmaker Scott Derrickson for the first time as he takes up the director's chair for a Marvel film for the first time.
Derrickson has brought us movies such as Deliver Us From Evil and Sinister in recent years and I am exciting to see him take on a much bigger movie project.
Doctor Strange is based on the comic books by Steve Ditko and has been adapted for the big screen by Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill.
The director has brought together an impressive cast as Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Mad Mikkelsen, Tilda Swinton, and Chiwetel Ejiofor will all star alongside Cumberbatch. It really is another great cast in a Marvel film.
When Dr. Stephen Strange's medical career is left in tatters, he is taken under the wing of a sorcerer and trains him to defend the world against evil.
Doctor Strange is the second of two Marvel films to be released this year and comes after the huge success of Captain America: Civil War.
We are going to be treated to some great blockbuster movies this autumn and Doctor Strange is one that really is not to be missed. It looks like it is going to be a visually stunning film and I cannot wait to see what Derrickson and co deliver.
Doctor Strange is released 28th October.
