DOCTOR STRANGE Director Addresses Final Battle, Possible CAPTAIN MARVEL Easter Egg, And More

Here director Scott Derrickson talks in detail about the final battle between Stephen Strange and [SPOILER] in the movie and even addresses a possible Captain Marvel Easter Egg...

Over the past 24 hours or so, you may have seen a lot of headlines asking if you spotted the big Captain Marvel Easter Egg in Doctor Strange. Don't fret if you didn't though as that stems from an interview director Scott Derrickson took part in where he would neither confirm nor deny the interviewer's speculation that it could be a nod to the character (despite it sounding nothing like Carol Danvers).

In case you're still not sure what we're talking about, when Strange is trying to pick his next patient before that car crash, he's presented with a woman who had a chip in her head to control schizophrenia. What intrigues him is that the 22 year old has been struck by lightning, and many believe that this could be the new origin story for the hero one of the screenwriters previously alluded to. "All I can say is...maybe," Derrickson teased. "That one, you're going to have to wait and see..."

I think it's entirely possible that this could be a character from the comic books, but Captain Marvel? I'm not so sure, but there's no denying that there's something very interesting about his remarks.

As for Dormammu's surprise appearance, Derrickson has now confirmed that Benedict Cumberbatch provided both the facial capture and voice for the villain. "The reason for that was threefold. One, Benedict suggested it. [Two], the awesomeness of his voice – he was Smaug, of course. [Three,] he understood exactly who Dormammu was. He's the ultimate cosmic narcissist. There was something great about the mirrored relationship between the two of them." Interestingly, Empire Online mentions that the actor's voice was blended with some else's so it would be too recognisable. 
 
Asked to elaborate on that final battle, Derrickson explained that an earlier version of the script would have revealed that Doctor Strange had been brutally killed by Dormammu over a thousand times! "We had a line where Strange said, ‘we've been through this a thousand times. Literally. I fancied the idea that they went through it thousands of times before Dormammu finally realised he wasn't going to get out of it." Pretty cool, eh?
