‘Ben Davis’ on Marvel’s Doctor Strange
With the production beginning soon, Marvel’s Doctor Strange has received a few teasers by Director of Photography Ben Davis. He believes that the movie will be different than the usual Marvel flicks. Doctor Strange is part of Marvel’s Phase Three, along with Captain America: Civil War. The role of Doctor Strange will be played by Benedict Cumber batch.
Davis told Screen Daily that Most of the work within it is about other dimensions. And he described it, he think, when he was talking to Marvel as ‘Marvel’s Fantasia’ in a way, because it is so sort of out there & different to everything else that they have done… There is a lot of previsualisation, and there’s a lot of work which is very hard – you look at it and you see the imagery that they’ve created for it and you think, ‘well how the hell do we shoot that!?’ because it’s all sort of [M.C.] Escher stuff”.
Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man had a sequence where the ant sized superhero visits the “Quantum Realm”. According to CinemaBlend, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed that the Ant-Man sequence will be like a stepping stone for what’s to come in Doctor Strange. Releasing on November 4 next year, Doctor Strange will be directed by Scott Derrickson and written by Jon Spaihts.
