RUMOR: Is This The Plot Of DOCTOR STRANGE?

Check out a some plot details regarding Marvel's live-action Doctor Strange film, which is currently filming in Nepal. Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the Sorcerer Supreme, in the mystical film written by Jon Spaihts and directed by Scott Derrickson.

According to Latino Review, Doctor Strange will be an origin story that adheres to the source material pretty closely.  Not a huge surprise, considering it's Marvel Studios.  However, the report goes into specifics, describing the opening scene in the film.  Apparently the story opens in 1968  Kathmandu (the capital of Nepal) where some dark magic users open a portal to another dimension (probably making first contact with Dormammu, methinks).  Leading the dark arts practitioner is a character named Kaecilius, who has ties to Baron Mordo in the Marvel Comics lore.  From this first contact, the scene shifts to present day NYC, where we meet Doctor Strange, a gifted but arrogant surgeon.  Reportedly, Strange damages his hands in a car accident while talking on his cell phone and even several surgeries from Dr. Nicodemus West are not enough to restore functionality to Strange's fingers.  His medical career is effectively over.  Apparently his quest for a cure leads him to magic and subatomic particles (Kevin Feige previously stated that the MCU's first introduction to the mystical realm would be in Ant-Man) and eventually to the doorstep of the Ancient One.  Apparently, Strange's journey to find the Ancient One is what is currently being filmed in Nepal.  That's all the site has to report for now but more details will surely make their way online in the coming months as filming continues.

Doctor Strange arrives in North American theaters on 
November 4, 2016.
