Kevin Feige on Doctor Strange’s Powers

On top of the huge amount of information released by Entertainment Weekly yesterday, we also got some very big news from Kevin Feige on both Doctor Strange himself, as well as on a particular item in his possession..

On Strange himself, Feige described the character as such:

He does cast spells, which in the comics have very sort of tongue-twisty fun names. We don’t want to shy away from that, because that’s what makes Doctor Strange Doctor Strange. He has a Cloak of Levitation that allows him to fly, but he doesn’t fly like Superman or like Thor. It’s almost got a consciousness of its own, this cloak, which, again, gives us a superhero with a red cape — which we’ve seen a few times — but allows us to do it in a wholly unique and wholly original way. He can create these mandalas of light that he can use as shields and he can use as sort of weapons. He can create portalas that will open before your eyes that he can step through and go to other places around the world. And frankly, even in this film, we’ll only touch upon what a lot of his powers are

Thankfully, it sounds like this film won’t actively downplay much of what makes Doctor Strange unique as a character. Even more interesting however, Feige also possibly hinted at an Infinity Stone existing in the movie.

The Cloak of Levitation [and] the Eye of Agamotto are his two signature pieces…In this film, the Eye is a very important relic that can be quite dangerous if used in the wrong hands, because it has the ability to do any number of things, the most dangerous of which is, it can sort of manipulate probabilities. Which is also another way of saying, ‘screw around with time’ — which is part of our story.

So the Time Stone is in Doctor Strange, and it’ll be the Eye of Agamotto? Good thing I called it about a year ago!

Doctor Strange will arrive in theaters on November 4, 2016.
