Doctor Strange Review

Via:  http://geeknation.com/doctor-strange-set-photos-reveal-new-looks-at-the-sorcerer-supreme/. Since Civil War was utterly incredible, I came to Doctor Strange with a sense of hesitation. As a long time Marvel fan, I’ve stood by them through the good times (Iron Man 1) and the bad (Iron Man 2), and they haven’t truly disappointed me to a painful degree. Of course, however, disappointment is …
