Doctor Strange opened to critical and box office success, but one of the common reactions to the film were about how similar the film was to the very first Marvel Cinematic Universe entry, Iron Man. Now, the latest edition of Honest Trailers has been released, roasting Doctor Strange and comparing the film to watching Iron Man while intoxicated.
In addition to noting the many similarities between Doctor Strange and Iron Man, the video also comments on star Benedict Cumberbatch’s American accent, the controversy surrounding Tilda Swinton’s casting and the exposition-heavy dialogue.
The video isn’t all about criticism though. The latest Honest Trailers installment gives the film credit for it’s unique take on the common Marvel third act finale…albeit with a slight dig at the end, of course.
