Judging by the first batch of instant reactions from the U.S. press screening of Doctor Strange, it sure sounds like Marvel Studios has done it again as the Scott Derrickson-directed film is receiving near universal acclaim from all sides, with the psychedelic visuals receiving special mention from practically every attendee.

As for the cast, Benedict Cumberbatch is getting a lot of love for his portrayal of the Sorcerer Supreme, with some critics even favorably likening his performance as Strange to Robert Downey Jr.'s take on Tony Stark. Tilda Swinton, who plays The Ancient One, also gets a couple shoutouts, and on another note it sounds like Marvel may have finally solved their villain problem, as there don't seem to be any complaints about Mads Mikkelsen's Kaecilius.

The reactions also provide confirmation that there will indeed be two post-credits scenes, which will tease the grand future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Check out the early reactions below:
