    Hey Defenders!

    No spoilers, but I saw ‘Doctor Strange’ in the cinema yesterday, and just wanted to share the experience a little. I’m not crazy about 3D, so I saw it in 2D, but there are scenes in the movie that are made for 3D, so if you don’t care either way, I would recommend seeing it in 3D. The story takes its time to unfold; to get to know the characters and the universe of ‘dark arts’. It’s a great journey with lots of Marvel trademark fun along the way … oh, and remember to stay till the end of the movie, because there is both a ‘midpoint’ ekstra scene and a post credit scene all the way at the end. The movie is visually astounding … wow! I just finished the ‘Doctor Strange Omnibus’ (Lee & Ditko) (LOVED IT!) before seeing the movie, and there is a lot of that story and those characters in there. And in the end of the movie there is a little ‘easter egg’ from ‘The Amazing Spider-Man Annual 2’ story, so you might want to read that before watching.

    And of course I wore my cap with pride! Have a great time at the movies! 🙂
