The cinematic Marvel Universe just got a whole lot bigger with the introduction of Doctor Strange. Up until now, Walt Disney Studios has taken us around the world, into outer space, and all the way to Asgard. It has presented technologically based, science infused, otherworldly and god-like heroes, but with this new entry, magic has made it’s introduction. Doctor Strange, starting Benedict Cumberbatch, adds a new layer to the world of the Avengers, and it looks pretty incredible.
