PiercingMetal Thoughts: Like I said just above, I have been looking forward to Doctor Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe for a very long time or at least as long as the films have been coming out. He is one of my favorite characters and I was a constant reader of his title when I was a hard core collector and can say that I have at least one long box full of his adventures in storage somewhere. Don’t worry they are all bagged and boarded for safe-keeping. I’m hoping to catch this one today on its opening day but have to make sure I don’t have anything else to do so I can enjoy a proper day of cinema and after adventure. What do you readers think? Are you as excited for this one as I am? Clearly the MCU is the winner in the run for this sort of thing when compared to those other films. Let me know what you think about it all in the comments below.
