Early Reviews For Doctor Strange Shower Praise On Spectacular Visuals, Strong Performances


Much like Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man before it, Doctor Strange has been shackled with big expectations in the build up to its theatrical release for the simple reason that Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme isn’t what one would call a household name. Not yet, at least.

That all changes on November 4, for better or worse, and as Scott Derrickson’s feature is being readied for its debut in the UK on October 25, the first wave of Twitter reviews have now found their way online. Official reviews remain under embargo at the time of writing, but these knee-jerk reactions still give us a good indication of the general consensus coming out of those early junkets and press screenings. Rest assured, you won’t find any spoiler-sensitive material included in the Tweets below, but if you really are under media blackout until Doctor Strange graces theaters, bookmark this page for a later date.

Still with us? Below you’ll find a sample from the overly positive Twitter outpouring. At least based on these reactions, Doctor Strange may not go down as the greatest entry in the MCU, but it looks set to be a visually spectacular ride nonetheless.

Also starring Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, and Scott Adkins, look for Doctor Strange to land on these shores on November 4.
