Kevin Feige Confirms That Dan Harmon Added Humor To Additional DOCTOR STRANGE Scenes

Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that writer and producer Dan Harmon contributed to script duties for Doctor Strange, along with detailing why the studio decided to bring him onboard.

It was widely reported last August that Community/Rick and Morty creator Dan Harmon was brought in by Marvel for script writing duties on extra scenes being filmed for Doctor Strange. While the nature of those scenes were a mystery, many speculated that it was to add humor to the film, given Harmon's writing background.

As it turns out, those reports were true! Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige recently spoke to EW about Harmon's contributions to the film, saying that they admired the blend of humor and sci-fi on Rick and Morty and felt it would benefit Doctor Strange"We are all big fans of his work, clearly," Feige said. "We’re also fans of his cartoon Rick & Morty, which is about, of course, humor, but I would argue that any given episode of that show has an unbelievably amazing sci-fi concept that could be its own movie. So, really, we just wanted him to watch the movie, and talk to us about it, and give us his opinions on the sci-fi concepts. That was as important to us as any humor that he could add to the movie.”

From the looks of many recent trailers and TV spots, the film's dry wit is in keeping with Harmon's style, though we'll have to wait for the full release to see how everything plays out!
