The super magician Doctor Strange, portrayed by Benedict “Sherlock” Cumberbatch, penetrates into other dimensions and dangerous, exotic parallel universes. It is based on the comic of the same name created by Steve Ditko, which first appeared in the early 1960s and enjoyed great popularity in the drug-tested subculture.
The film tells the career of the unusual magician: Stephen Strange is initially a surgeon practicing in New York who one day suffers an accident in which his hands are seriously injured.
Unable to continue his profession, he travels to the Himalayas, where he meets the 500-year-old sorceress The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton). This character was portrayed by a man in the comics, which sparked violent fan protests.
