What Superhero Fatigue? Doctor Strange Blowing Away International Box Office

If superhero movies are anywhere near losing ground, Marvel's latest entry isn't showing any signs, and it's not even out in the U.S. yet. Overseas, Doctor Strange is knocking down box office predictions for its opening weekend, as well as numbers set by previous Marvel movies like Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe Gets Strange in the First Doctor Strange Movie Trailer

Looks like someone hit the Inception button.

Marvel's movies have tried to stay pretty grounded so far (as grounded as Thor and the Hulk can be, anyway) and keep everything in the realm of exaggerated science as they build audience trust. With Doctor Strange, though, it looks like we've run out of "where I come from, science and magic are the same" excuses, and Marvel's finally ready to let things get weird.

Snowpiercer Director Bong Joon-ho & Tilda Swinton Are “Planning More Adventures”

A Very Cranky Dr. Strange Round-Up: Tilda Swinton’s In; Rachel McAdams Rumored


I have a bad case of Cumberbatch Fatigue. It's due in part to his inexplicable omnipresence in all my favorite genre fiction, but mostly to his unimpressive turn as a white-washed Khan in Star Trek: Into Darkness.

The comic will be drawn by Sara Pichelli, and written by Brian Michael Bendis, who told The New York Daily News, "Our message has to be it’s not Spider-Man with an asterisk, it’s the real Spider-Man for kids of color, for adults of color and everybody else."

Gender-Swapped Jones: Nine Leading Ladies We’d Like to See Cast in Iconic Male Action Hero Roles

I recalled a comment that I read on TMS a little while back, to paraphrase it went a little bit like this: ‘Gender swapping is lazy, make your own characters!’ To me this misses the point, gender swapping characters can be a very powerful message about gender stereotyping.
