"Doctor Strange" took its viewers into a whole lot new level and dimension of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Astounded by the stellar visual effects and unpredictable action sequences of "Doctor Strange," viewers were left hanging as the film concluded in a two-hour run time. Hitting theaters last November 4, "Doctor Strange" did not disappoint its fans by bringing the promised psychedelic visual scenes.

Unlike previous installments of the Marvel franchise, however, "Doctor Strange" stood faithful to its own community and established its own storyline rather than exposing the other gigantic web of narratives of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As per Wired, the fourteenth installment of Marvel gave its audiences a different yet beautiful experience of MCU. With this approach, "Doctor Strange" is deemed worthy of a full 3D version.

Also, through its screenplay that focused on the narrow community of sorcerers, "Doctor Strange" was able to diverge away from the usual formula of Marvel movies. The media outlet further pointed out some significant breakaways including the adventures of "Doctor Strange" that are not apocalyptic in comparison to other Avengers heroes' exploits. Likewise, "Doctor Strange" successfully established a memorable antagonist whereas usual foes of other heroes are one-and-done.

"In each sequence, there was a general concept to do a set piece that hadn't been done before. Each one of them was an idea that I just hadn't seen in a movie before," Scott Derrickson, director of "Doctor Strange," divulged, as quoted from an interview with ABC7.

This could be Marvel's first step on breaking away from its usual and already predictable cinematic formulas as "Doctor Strange" introduce fans into the world of supernatural and magic for the first time.

Don't forget to catch "Doctor Strange" in theaters this November and be the judge. Stay tuned for more exciting updates!
