Dr. Stephen Strange's (Benedict Cumberbatch) life changes after a car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he looks for healing, and hope, in a mysterious enclave. He quickly learns that the enclave is at the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces such as demigod Dormammu who's fanatical zealots led by resentful master magician Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen) are bent on destroying reality. Before long, Strange is forced to choose between his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as one of the most powerful sorcerer in existence, by joining the ranks of the elite worldly protectors; the Sorcerer Supremes.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- While filming, Benedict Cumberbatch walked into a comic book store, in full costume, and bought an actual Doctor Strange comic.
- Joaquin Phoenix was the studio's second choice for Doctor Strange, but after a few months of deliberation, eventually turned down the offer due to his reluctance to do a multi-picture deal that was required by the studio if he signed on.
- Rachel McAdams' startled reaction in the broom closet was genuine, since the mop handle fell completely by accident, and scared McAdams almost out of her skin. Scott Derrickson decided to keep the reaction in the film, since she never broke character.
- Chiwetel Ejiofor is a 5th Degree Black Belt in karate, so his movements are second nature in fighting.
- Mads Mikkelsen admitted that with all the computer-generated imagery he got a bit lost on how to film his scenes, especially during the Mirror Dimension scenes.
- Tilda Swinton's children were crew members on the film. Her daughter worked in the costume department and her son in the art department designing planets.
