Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson explains why he deleted a shot of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange drinking alcohol.
The trailer for Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange featured a shot of Benedict Cumberbatch’s eponymous surgeon holding a glass of liquor in a scene presumably set just before his fateful car crash. However, the shot in question was not seen in the theatrical cut of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange.
In a post on Twitter, one fan suggested Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange was originally supposed to be inebriated before the car crash but Disney opposed the idea of seeing a superhero drinking while driving. However, Scott Derrickson responded by explaining that the aforementioned shot was removed because he wanted the car crash to be caused solely by the over-confidence of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange and not the possible result of driving while under the influence.

No I took that out because I wanted the crash to be solely the result of his over-confidence, not possibly the result of alcohol. https://t.co/GEU8H3D5BJ
