'Doctor Strange' Honest Trailer Hits the MCU Film Right in the Astral Plane


Screen Junkies' Honest Trailers hit more often than they miss, and they've got Doctor Strange's number in their latest effort. If you remember their Ant-Man "Tiny Iron Man" Honest Trailer, you've got some idea of what to expect here as the similarities between 2008's Iron Man and yet another MCU origin film are all too obvious. 

For the record, I liked Doctor Strange, but its shortcomings are numerous, namely the fact that this film really needed to be seen in IMAX 3D to be appreciated and the generations to come introduced to it on television screens likely won't take the same shine to it that we did. I think this is the tightrope that Marvel has to walk for the rest of time: How much emphasis do we place on visual effects when those are only going to be truly impressive in the film's theatrical release, which is super fleeting in this day and age. 

I doubt Marvel will take any lessons from these trailers, and the makers will tell you that it's "all in good fun," but why bring it up if you don't want them to actually enact any change?
