Much like how Thor introduced extraterrestrial
elements to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Fri-
day s Ant-Man will introduce the Microverse, 2016 s
Doctor Strange will leave its own unique mark.
When the film hits theatres next year, it will directly
delve into the world of magic for the first time in
Although fans have seen various superpowers and
bizarre technology used by the heroes and villains,
magic is an entirely different beast, and according to
one of the main stars, this will give the audience a
different experience from Marvel's other cinematic
While confirming that she will be playing The
Ancient One in Doctor Strange, actress Tilda Swinton
told Screen Crush that Doctor Strange will have a
unique feel to it compared to the other Marvel movies.
She said: "I'm a Marvel fan and I think this particular
world that Doctor Strange goes into is really, really,
really exciting. I'm really interested as both an actor
and a fan to see what's done in this particular world.
It's all about creativity. It's not about everything
exploding at the end. It's about something very dif-
Marvel hasn't divulged any specific story details
for Doctor Strange, but fans can likely expect a more
unusual superhero offering. Last year's plot synopsis
mentioned that the movie would explore the "hidden
world of magic," which includes alternate dimensions
like the Astral Plane.
While we will see the Sorcerer Supreme fighting
various kinds of malevolent beings and rogue magic
users, it's unlikely that he will be fighting them the
same way this universe's superheroes do, ie engaging
enemies on an actual battlefield with fists flying.
Strange relies on his magical abilities and artifacts to
fight evil, and often times these battles occur in these
other realms where the laws of physics aren't the
same as they are on Earth.
In other words, Doctor Strange will likely be a much
more psychedelic experience for moviegoers that may
be lighter on the action, but still a fascinating story.
Doctor Strange will be released on November 4,
How Doctor Strange will differ
from previous Marvel movies
Self-confessed Marvel fan Tilda Swinton says she's
"excited" to be in the Dr Strange movie.
The most expensive Indian movie
ever made turns out to have spent a
fair bit on getting one man to the top
of a cliff and then leaving him hanging.
SS Rajamouli s Baahubali---a Telugu
production, dubbed into Tamil and
releasing in two parts (Baahubali: The
Conclusion follows next year)---report-
edly set its producers back around
US$40 million: pocket change by Hol-
lywood standards, a sign of how the
movie world s other half live.
Yet for once with these lavish items,
the budget isn't the whole story: the
impressive results only set one to won-
dering why the American studios don't
insist on getting more for their money.
The eponymous hero ("The One with
Strong Arms") embodies several legends
for the price of one. Plucked from a
river, the infant Baahubali could be
Moses; shifting a stone shrine several
hundred feet, his teenage self is as hefty
as Hercules; swinging from vines so as
to climb the waterfall his village sits
under, he's as romantic a figure as
The film, like its hero, keeps flexing
its muscles; Rajamouli clearly asked
"What can't we do with this cash?" You
want to see a man wrestling a bull with
his bare hands? You got it. Two lovers
fleeing an avalanche on a rock? Check.
A hero swatting 10,000 arrows using
his sword alone? Why not.
New frontiers unfold before our eyes:
one moment we're witnessing mildly
risqué canoodling in a forest of orchids,
the next prowling the streets of a fortified
city where hundreds of flogged and flog-
ging extras have been charged with
erecting a towering golden statue. (Again
with the Moses comparisons.) The final
45 minutes roam a vast battlefield that,
with its human shields and Boadicea-
style murder chariots, makes Helms
Deep resemble a punch-up in a chip
shop. At each turn, the money's right
there on screen, yet what's most striking
is how these resources have been mar-
shalled---to enhance, rather than clutter
up, the narrative throughline.
In this, Baahubali demonstrates the
pleasing, straight-ahead simplicity of
certain videogames: whenever our hero
accomplishes a task, some new challenge
scaling that waterfall, the adult
Baahubali (the genial, moustachioed
Prabhas) finds he's strayed into a civil
war; only with a glimpse of warrior
princess Avanthika (Tamannaah Bhatia)
does he sense which side to pick.
...fantastic value for money
