A new Doctor Strange featurette has appeared ahead of Marvel’s giant Phase 2 Blu-ray box-set, which features people like Kevin Feige and Scott Derrickson discussing what’s special about what they’re doing.

It’s very brief and doesn’t feature the cast (although Derrickson is full of praise for Benedict Cumberbatch), but it’s interesting to hear their pitch for the movie and present it as a challenge. It feels like Doctor Strange does present the Marvel Cinematic Universe with the opportunity to do something new visually, let’s see if they can pull it off.

Doctor Strange will be released in cinemas on 28 October 2016. You can find out more about the characters and the comics that inspired them by picking up the latest edition of 100 All-Time Greatest Comics.
