Dr Strange is one of the upcoming marvel films I am really looking forward to, beacuse unlike most all the previous movies which has used science as its grounding for the superhero aspect, Dr Strange is completely, supernatural themed, filled with spells and magic and cosmic beings.
In an interview with Screen Daily (via CBM), cinematographer Ben Davis – who previously worked on both Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Age of Ultron – confirmed he will be working on Doctor Strange, and offered up some details on the look of the film.
Davis first stated that Doctor Strange “has a very psychedelic grounding,” before going on to add that “it’s not your typical Marvel action movie.” In fact, it’s so different that Davis went onto call it the “Fantasia” of the MCU:
“Most of the work within it is about other dimensions. And I described it, I think, when I was talking to Marvel as Marvel’s Fantasia, in a way, because it’s so sort of out there and different to everything else that they’ve done.”
“There’s a lot of previsualisation, and there’s a lot of work which is very hard – you look at it and you see the imagery that they’ve created for it and you think, ‘well how the hell do we shoot that!?’ because it’s all sort of Escher stuff.”
