"It's an origin story in this film in particular and it always has been our model, with a few exceptions, to introduce a character and introduce their world and then have the fun of meeting that character in another movie down the line. Iron Man, Cap, Thor, most recently Ant-Man. Certainly, that's what we're doing in Doctor Strange,"
"If you didn't know this movie was connected to 13 movies before it, nothing in this movie would indicate that that was the case. This is very much a standalone introduction to a very complex character and a very complex world, which through this movie, and until maybe some upcoming movies, is relatively self-contained and independent.”
“There are people inhabiting the same world that are stopping buildings from falling down, robots from doing this or aliens from doing that. These people in this movie are stopping inter-dimensional forces from wiping out all of reality.
Although it doesn't necessarily come up, we've always sort of assumed that the sorcerers have bigger fish to fry. When they hear there's something happening in the city or there's a bank being robbed or something, they're not thinking about it. They're thinking about, ‘If we don't keep vigilant, our sense of reality will disappear and there won't be a bank to rob and there won't be a city to be conquered.’"
"He is very well-known as a surgeon. He has got various awards and plaques you're going to see over there; he attends various galas, might be driving at one point in this movie. He has name recognition and a talent and certain Hydra computers identified him as somebody that could cause trouble for their agendas."
"What we're playing with in this world is that there are dimensions, That the other dimensions are not just parallel realities -although some of them are - but [there is the] Dark Dimension, where Dormammu inhabits. There are dimensions that are so mind-bending that you can barely perceive them."
We wanted a grounded character, We wanted a character that was a connection to Strange’s life in New York City, in the normal world.
Somebody that could be his anchor to the real world, to his present in the beginning of the film, and by the time he re-encounters her, wearing that, someone who can comment on his transformation as a character."
"Everyone in this movie knows more than Strange. Everyone is more talented when it comes – for 90% of the movie, the magical abilities and the mastery of the mystic arts than Strange is, and Wong is a fellow warrior who has been a master in his own right.
As we meet him in this movie, he’s tasked with protecting some of the most valuable relics and books Kamar-Taj has. He doesn’t have a lot of time to worry about Strange. So those are a few of the ways we’ve updated those characters."
¡Geniales los chistes del final!
