Justin Timberlake & Ellen DeGeneres Spoof ‘Doctor Strange’


What if Doctor Stephen Strange was exactly as his name described? Strange. Strange and creepy. Well, talk show host Ellen DeGeneres won’t let you ponder that thought for very long.

On The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the host, along with singer Justin Timberlake, spoof Doctor Strange, which is the number one movie in America right now. The spoof is called Strange Doctor.

“I’m sure you know Doctor Strange is the number-one movie in America; it’s already made over 300 million dollars, and they are saying it’s probably going to be the number-one movie again this weekend. I am coming out with… This is so strange… So, that’s Doctor Strange. I’m coming out with a similar movie. Similar in the sense that it’s completely different but sounds the same. Mine is called Strange Doctor, and it stars myself and Justin Timberlake. And I think it’s going to be even bigger than that.”

In the video, DeGeneres is sitting in a doctor’s office with a neck brace and arm cast. Not before long, Timberlake as the Strange Doctor, pops up from behind a plant and begins examining her. It’s a bizarre encounter and Timberlake looks like he’s sniffing DeGeneres and gives her a really awkward and uncomfortable-looking massage.

Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Mads Mikkelsen, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Tilda Swinton. The film is now playing in theaters.

    Interesting that Channing is a part of this. Wondering if this will be his only foray into the DC world (COUGHSHAZAMCOUGH)

      We can only hope. That said, Tatum would kill the role of Gambit if the studio ever wanted to get its sh*t together.

        I dunno, Gambit seems like a non-starter to me. Plus, Shazam is a far more high profile character than Gambit is. Also, for the life of me, I don’t get why Gambit would get his own solo film right off the bat. He’s a character that should be intro’d in another film first.

        Shazam on the other hand, needs no real introduction.
