October was a complete bust as far as things I was actually interested in seeing in theaters, but November more than makes up for it with three solid movies that are sure to delight.
Doctor Strange – November 4
The next in the growing line of Marvel Cinematic Universe stories, this film introduces us to core Avengers member, Doctor Strange. I believe he’s also the first non-mutant magic-user introduced in the universe. (Scarlet Witch being the mutant daughter of Magneto, though her magic isn’t actually part of her mutation.) I never read much Doctor Strange growing up, though he has popped up in fanfiction from time to time, so his origin story is fairly new to me. I’m interested in seeing what Bandicoot Cumbersnatch does with the role, though as much as I adore Tilda Swinton, why’d they cast a white woman in the role of an old Asian man?
