Much like with the Bryan Singer interview on the final X-Men: Apocalypse trailer, Empire recently released a new interview with Scott Derrickson and Benedict Cumberbatch, the director and star, respectively, of the upcoming Marvel film Doctor Strange. If you haven’t seen it already, go ahead and watch the trailer below before we look over the interview:

While the pair didn’t reveal much, they did speak about the tone and the feel of the good doctor’s movie. In fact, Benedict Cumberbatch was quoted as saying:

It’s a very different feel, different hero and different set of circumstances to what we’ve seen before. It’s another moment during Marvel’s evolution.

Scott Derrickson, introduced in the article with the promise that he would “push Marvel’s creative and visual palate in whole new directions,” continued by stating:

We felt free to go as far as we could imagine, so we’re doing a lot of things that I think have not been done before. Once we’d crossed a certain line we just kept going.

One thing’s for sure. With a director like Derrickson (having films like Sinister under his belt) at the helm, an actor like Cumberbatch in the lead role, and impressivly mind bending visuals, Doctor Strange will certainly be one of the most, if not the most, talked about films of 2016.

Doctor Strange will arrive in theaters November 4, 2016.
