‘Doctor Strange’ Almost Had a Completely Different Villain

Marvel movie scripts go through a ton of editing and plot reworking before they’re finally handed over to their directors, and Doctor Strange was no different. It’s a more ambitious film from its predecessors in many ways, not the least of which is introducing audiences to a new superhero and an entirely new way of thinking about the Marvel multiverse. Unsurprisingly, the writers went through a few villain ideas before it landed on the one Marvel president Kevin Feige felt would be most appropriate for the movie, but apparently we were very close to getting a completely different big bad. (Warning — SPOILERS ahead for those of you who haven’t seen the movie yet, so proceed with caution.)

But a new piece from IGN today reveals that in addition to the Sorcerer Supreme, Cumberbatch also played a second, uncredited role in the Doctor Strange production. (Here be SPOILERS.

Long before Finn Jones was cast in the role of Netflix’s Iron Fist, Marvel made headlines with reports that it considered casting actors of Asian descent for the title character.

Being a Marvel zombie has its advantages. Collecting comics for more than 20 years means I have thousands upon thousands of them stashed away in my parents’ basement and closets, a treasure trove worth tens of ones of dollars. It also means that the biggest cinematic universe going in Hollywood is pretty much aimed right at a target audience of me. And finally, it means when a giant floating head shows up out of nowhere in the middle of a movie, I know who the hell the giant floating head is and what the hell is going on. Dormamm-who?
