For episode 2 of our Summer of Strange we discuss the Doctor Strange TV Movie 1978 starring Peter Wooten as the Sorcerer Supreme. We discuss our top 5 points about this TV movie that could have been the pilot for a third 70s Marvel TV Show. Following in the footsteps of Spider-man and Incredible Hulk. While this has definitely dated there are some things to love about the first adaptation of the masters of the mystic arts. But will the team defend Stephen Strange’s first outing beyond comic books.
