Marvel has given us a little taste of weirdness with Guardians of the Galaxy as well as the Quantum Realm material in Ant-Man — but things are all about to get real strange when Doctor Strange strikes theaters next drop. How strange, exactly? New descriptions in the film’s tone as well as the first reactions to be able to concept art have trickled in, so we don’t think it’ll be much longer before we get a peek at several of this stuff for ourselves (cough, D23).
Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Day of Ultron cinematographer Ben Davis spoke to be able to Screen Daily, where he confirms that will he’ll be the director of photography with Doctor Strange. Although he definitely couldn’t reveal very much, he did converse a bit about the film’utes overall tone — also it does sound splendidly weird:
It has a quite psychedelic grounding, and it’s not your typical Wonder action movie. Most of the work within it is approximately other dimensions. I described it, I believe, when I was actually talking to Marvel as Marvel’utes Fantasia, in a way, because it’azines so sort of on the market and different to the rest that they’ve done.
There’s a lot of previsualisation, as well as there’s a lot of perform which is very hard – you look at it and you see the imagery that they’ve designed for it and you assume, ‘well how the heck do we shoot which!?’ because it’s many sort of Escher stuff.
It’ersus all very around. I can’t genuinely say much more about that, I’m afraid. However i think it’ll become really interesting, and it’azines a very dark movie, I’m pleased to say. DP’s always appreciate the word ‘dark’. The trouble is that almost all producers don’t like dark. Mostly you get into DI [Digital Intermediate process] and people don’t seem to like dark anymore!
We don’t know much in relation to Marvel’s plans for your adaptation — Benedict Cumberbatch has been toss as the Sorcerer Superior, aka Stephen Strange, an expert neurosurgeon who discovers the art of magic and harnesses that power regarding his new personality as Earth’s # 1 defense against darkish, mystical forces.
Disney’ohydrates African division exhibited some concept fine art from the film earlier this week, with Blastr) confirm that Cumberbatch will sport the character’azines signature goatee, while anyone referred to his look as “menacing.”
We anticipate to learn more about Doctor Strange this 30 days at D23. The film hits theaters upon November 4, 2016.
