First Reactions to Marvel's DOCTOR STRANGE Praise the Film; Plus a New Clip

A flood of first reaction reviews for Marvel's Doctor Strange has hit the internet, and it sounds like Marvel fans are in for something pretty incredible! There is a lot of praise for the crazy psychedelic visual effects, the characters, the uniqueness of the film and how it brings something fresh to the MCU. You can read through the reviews below. They've definitely managed to get me even more pumped up about seeing this movie! I didn't think that was possible, but with everyone talking about how awesome it is, how can I not be more excited?!

It has also been confirmed that there will be two post-credits scenes teasing the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. 

Below the reactions I included a new clip from the film called "Heal the Body" that introduces Strange to the astral form. It's an extension of what we've seen in the trailer of The Ancient One punching Stephen Strange's astral form out of his body. It's pretty cool!

Doctor Strange will hit theater on November 4th and here are the reactions:

Even beyond its insane visuals (cool stuff like you've never seen before), #DoctorStrange is tons of fun. A bit formulaic, but very solid.

#DoctorStrange is SPELLBINDING! Hot movie! Great performances especially Cumberbatch as Strange, storytelling, & incredible visual effects!

Enjoyed DOCTOR STRANGE a lot.. A few nitpicks though, of course:) full review as soon as embargo lifts.

DOCTOR STRANGE is unlike any previous Marvel movie and that’s why I love Marvel. They keep pushing boundaries and make it look easy.

- Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) October 20, 2016

Visuals in DOCTOR STRANGE are fantastic. Actually worth seeing in 3D. Cumberbatch is great as the Sorcerer Supreme.

- Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) October 20, 2016

DOCTOR STRANGE has two after the credits scenes like most Marvel movies. They both set up future things...trying to stay spoiler free.

- Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) October 20, 2016

not going to say DOCTOR STRANGE is the best Marvel movie. It’s not. But it’s an awesome Doctor Strange movie with visuals that will floor u.

- Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) October 20, 2016

still in shock we've reached a point where Marvel can release a Doctor Strange movie. Can't believe how far we've come in 10 years.

- Steven Weintraub (@colliderfrosty) October 20, 2016

Doctor Strange's action set pieces make an MC Escher paintings look tame. Some really great, clever, incentive stuff. Worth the 3D ticket.

- Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) October 20, 2016

Cumberbatch owns Doctor Strange, the movie is funnier than I was expecting, a throwback to a pre-MCU Iron Man-like standalone story.

- Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) October 20, 2016

DOCTOR STRANGE = YES on California Proposition 64 because I want some of whatever Marvel has been smoking and I want it stat

- Josh L. Spoockey (@JLDlite) October 20, 2016

DOCTOR STRANGE magic makes HARRY POTTER's look like parlour tricks. Dark & spooky psychedelic horrors, abracadabra wowie zowie. Loved it

- Josh L. Spoockey (@JLDlite) October 20, 2016

Best of all, DOCTOR STRANGE's characters are as multi-dimensional as they can be. Their setups & payoffs are dazzling sleights of hand

- Josh L. Spoockey (@JLDlite) October 20, 2016

#DoctorStrange is definitely Marvel's strangest movie to date, but it's weird & wild in all the best ways. Incredible imagery, heady story

- ErikDavis (@ErikDavis) October 20, 2016

The action sequences in #DoctorStrange are unlike anything Marvel's done. There are so ferociously loopy, frenetic & nerdy, I adore them.

- ErikDavis (@ErikDavis) October 20, 2016

If #DoctorStrange has a weak spot, it's w/ its humor. Doesn't mesh as well as it does in other Marvel movies. But man is this sucker a ride!

- ErikDavis (@ErikDavis) October 20, 2016

DOCTOR STRANGE is guilty of *all* the usual Marvel movie problems, but Tilda & some VERY trippy visuals make it a spectacle worth savoring.

- david ehrlich (@davidehrlich) October 20, 2016

also, DOCTOR STRANGE is something i never thought i’d see: a Marvel movie with a good original score. what a time to be alive.

- david ehrlich (@davidehrlich) October 20, 2016

I liked DOCTOR STRANGE. The most self-contained Marvel movie in a long time. Fun visuals. Almost felt like a reboot of the first IRON MAN.

- Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) October 20, 2016

In that it feels obvious that asshole yet charming Stephen Strange is here to eventually take the place of asshole yet charming Tony Stark.

- Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) October 20, 2016

Strange and Stark are *almost* the same character. Makes sense now they'd hire big star Cumberbatch to phase in while Downey phases out.

- Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) October 20, 2016

I hope someday he learns to just be Doctor Normal.

- Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) October 20, 2016

I wouldn't put #DoctorStrange in Marvel's top five but it's an entertaining movie with big ideas, gorgeous CGI and unique action sequences.

- Wolfman Bibbiani (@WilliamBibbiani) October 20, 2016

Review #DoctorStrange is a wonderfully trippy, visually stunning origin story that intros great characters into the MCU & #CloakOfLevitation pic.twitter.com/bed50icyJE

- Andy Signore (@andysignore) October 20, 2016

Seriously the #CloakOfLevitation stole the movie for me - it's its own wonderful character that I can't wait to see more of 😊 pic.twitter.com/RhrAwWNA9a

- Andy Signore (@andysignore) October 20, 2016

Saw @DrStrange, it's watching Lee-Ditko come to life! Review next week -- & tomorrow I'll attend LA premiere, watch for my live tweets!

- Mark Hughes (@markhughesfilms) October 20, 2016

#DoctorStrange has some of the best action sequences in any Marvel movie EVER.

- Alex Welch (@AlexRWelch) October 20, 2016

There are some problems with the humor and the pacing of the story itself. #DoctorStrange

- Alex Welch (@AlexRWelch) October 20, 2016

Benedict Cumberbatch IS #DoctorStrange though. His performance anchors the whole movie. Not too 5 Marvel, but still good.

- Alex Welch (@AlexRWelch) October 20, 2016

And it teases some very exciting things for the future of the MCU. #DoctorStrange

- Alex Welch (@AlexRWelch) October 20, 2016

Also, Michael Giacchino's #DoctorStrange music is Marvel's best score to date.

- Alex Welch (@AlexRWelch) October 20, 2016

I saw Dr Strange. It is better than I could have ever hoped for. Among the very best Marvel films. It dazzles and entertains throughout.

- Jeff Cannata (@jeffcannata) October 20, 2016

Remember when The Mateix made you rethink what was possible in an action sequence? Dr Strange does that 4 or 5 times.

- Jeff Cannata (@jeffcannata) October 20, 2016

Prepare to dig #DoctorStrange! Not the strongest script, but it legitimately adds new colors to the MCU, and the action is beautiful & crazy

- Evil Eric Eisenberg (@eeisenberg) October 20, 2016

#DrStrange was so much better than I thought it would be. Incredible performances by Tilda and Benedict. Yaaaas @Marvel

- Beatrice Verhoeven (@bverhoev) October 20, 2016

I should add that Mads Mikkelsen is great too. Another win for Marvel #DoctorStrangehttps://t.co/QFmnU26ew8

- Beatrice Verhoeven (@bverhoev) October 20, 2016

#DoctorStrange isn't one of Marvel's very best, but it is still a very entertaining and visually dazzling movie with plenty of highlights.

- Eric Goldman (@TheEricGoldman) October 20, 2016

Now that #DoctorStrange got the origin story out of the way, I am excited to see him as part of the MCU and how he opens it up even more.

- Eric Goldman (@TheEricGoldman) October 20, 2016

#DoctorStrange is a stunning visual achievement. A welcome blast of weirdness that opens up the MCU. Super dug it. Maybe best viewed on 🍄🍄🍄

- jen yamato (@jenyamato) October 20, 2016

#DoctorStrange has weak spots but it's a solid intro to the character. Refreshing and exciting to see such bold, unique story on screen.

- Perrinormal Activity (@PNemiroff) October 20, 2016

#DoctorStrange is pretty all around delightful. Excellent visuals, great characters, inventive use of magic & Cumberbatch is fantastic.
