The character of Doctor Strange is arrogant, intelligent and superficial; similar to Sherlock Holmes in terms of these attributes. Benedict have already portrayed Sherlock in the famous British TV Series (3 seasons and one mini series episode is aired, next season is being worked on) successfully. He got so much recognition for it as well. So the role would be comparatively easy to slip in for him. He is a nice actor, so it could not have been a problem for him otherwise also.

The movie is setup in USA, Nepal, Hong Kong, and UK. The movie had a whooping budget of 165 million USD. So there must be some fantastic VFX we are going to see in it.

It seems some changes to some characters and storyline is made, but that usually happens when making a movie.

Let us see what is there in the movie for us. We will share details with you all after watching it.
