On the very first edition of Trailer Talk, a podcast-esq discussion, I am joined by my very good friend Laura Alexander to discuss the upcoming Marvel film Doctor Strange. Both Laura and I are huge fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). We have seen all of the films in the Avengers series several times each.
Laura has read several Marvel comics and is well-versed in both the comic book and cinematic story lines Marvel has produced. She is currently an English and Journalism major at the University of Iowa with a focus in creative nonfiction.
During our discussion we cover Steven Strange’s background, the whitewashing controversy surrounding Tilda Swinton’s character the Ancient One, the highly visual style of the film, Benedict Cumberbatch and more.
