Marvel just recently revealed how Benedict Cumberbatch is going to look in his role as Doctor Stephen Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme. Those who know about Doctor Strange are aware of just how powerful he is, and the endless possibilities that his presence in the MCU will provide. It’s rumored that the first connection to the upcoming DOCTOR STRANGE movie was in ANT-MAN when he went subatomic. But who exactly is Doctor Strange, and what is it that makes him the Sorcerer Supreme?
LISTEN: Want more of the best underrated characters? DC Comics’ Martian Manhunter was the subject of our last episode!
Join ComicsVerse as we dive into the history of Doctor Strange. Exploring the mysteries of the magical realms, we journey with Strange and Doctor Doom into Mephisto’s hellish realm on Doctor Doom’s most noble quest. We find out just how Strange earned the title of Sorcerer Supreme- and have quite the debate about what exactly this title means.
With some of ComicsVerse’s biggest DOCTOR STRANGE fans, including Editor-in-Chief Travis Czap, Chief Operations Officer Sean Bartley, and ComicsVerse staff and interns Fabio Castelblanco, Brian Delpozo, Kay Honda, and Bob Franco, you’ll discover a character whose power is greater than that of the rest of the Marvel heroes combined… depending on the storyline. While being a hero that is very versatile, he’s also incredibly inconsistent, which makes defining his character a tough task.
HEAR: Like Doctor Strange, Marvel’s BLACK PANTHER will soon be taking over movie theatre’s everywhere, listen to his origin story in this podcast!
This podcast and the readings that correspond with it are so varied, and yet, the one constant is that they never let up on a sense of wonder and mystery. This is a great quality to the stories and to the character himself — whether he is a womanizer or a sage, he always carries with him a superb knowledge of the mystical realm, and deals with it so casually that the reader is forced to be swept up in awe at the magic that has become Stephen Strange’s norm. New readers and old will be left with one major question on their minds- how will Benedict Cumberbatch bring this character to life?
