Kevin Feige On The Difference Between Scarlet Witch & Doctor Strange

maxresdefault

With the arrival of Marvel’s next blockbuster, Doctor Strange, set to hit theatres everywhere in November, it is around this time fans will be provided juicy details about the character’s placement in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. When Comicbook.com visited the set of the film, they asked Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige to discuss the difference between Scarlet Witch’s magic, and Doctor Strange’s. Since the release of 2015’s Ant-Man, and the arrival of the quantum realm, fans have speculated about the involvement of the “Reality” Infinity Stone in Doctor Strange. Feige initially believed that there was no real comparison between the two at all, as Scarlet Witch’s powers were being finalised as Doctor Strange head into production. However, the producer had some more explicit details to provide:

“Her powers, she’s never had any training, I’m talking about Scarlet Witch. She never had any training; she’s figuring it out. Arguably, you could say that that’s why her powers are much more chaotic and much more loose in the way that we showcased those light effects.  In [Doctor Strange], some of what you might see today, even the cover of Entertainment Weekly, it’s much tighter. It’s all about focus. It’s all about pulling energies from other dimensions in an organized and purposeful fashion, which is why they can do a lot more than she can in, at least, a much more precise way.”

That said, Marvel fans will recall an abundance of times the two heroes have crossed paths in the comic book world, and with the confirmation of Doctor Strange in Infinity War, one would assume the two will unite on screen. So what do you guys think? Is Feige telling the truth or is it a quick continuity fix?

Doctor Strange hits theatres everywhere on November 4, 2016, while Captain America: Civil War is out now on Blu-Ray and DVD.

    SW’s character continuity is all messed up. As of now, they can say almost anything and it can be correct.

    • SAMURAI36

      True, & that’s the problem. I see them shoe horning all sorts of things into these films, such as Cap’s strength.

      • Bruce Norris

        Right! Cap’s strength is a strange one too. In the “ULTIMATES” comic Hulk was a result of an attempt to replicate, in some way, the serum that created Cap. They even fight in one issue. Alright, I can deal with the link. My problem is that I couldn’t/can’t grasp what his power level was/is because it’s different from what I know it to be.
        At times in the films he seems too strong…and it’s not consistent throughout the movie.
        Ex. He can casually kick an armored vehicle and move it but struggled several times in a fight with men in an elevator?

          I see what you are saying, and agree to an extent. But is he really struggling against those guys in the elevator? I seem to remember him beating all their a$$es while one hand was magnetically “tied up” to the wall.

          • Bruce Norris

            If I could kick a truck and move it, a magnet and elevator wall should be no problem. Everyone I strike would be dead or have severe physical trauma.

          • batghost

            Ha. Fair enough. Can’t really argue against that. It’s just not enough to take me out of it. Maybe he was pulling his punches. Who knows.
