Exclusive: Why Scott Derrickson Wanted to Make Marvel’s DOCTOR STRANGE #DoctorStrangeEvent

disney mom blogger scott derrickson interview

A few years ago I was given an assignment that took my pop culture interests to a new level. I was told that I had to watch Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Captain America and The Avengers in preparation for the Iron Man 3 premiere.

I was so hooked after those three films that I immediately watched Thor and The Avengers. I surprised myself and most people who knew me when I became a huge Marvel fan!

Now I eagerly await the release of every new Marvel, and I’ve binge-watched every Marvel series on Netflix. The Marvel Cinematic Universe fascinates me, and I feel like a section of my brain is devoted to connecting the dots between everything I see on screen.

When I was reading up on Doctor Strange, I found it interesting that Scott Derrickson was the director. Derrickson has established himself as a screenwriter and director of horror films, and I was wondering how he would translate that expertise into Marvel’s comic book roots.

You’ll learn about this as you read the details of my interview with Tilda Swinton below, but it’s absolutely fitting that the director wrote the part of The Ancient One for Swinton.

Benedict Cumberbatch on Doctor Strange, A Sequel and other Marvel Things #DoctorStrangeEvent

benedict cumberbatch interview doctor strange

I know I’m an especially lucky blogger. I get to do interesting and exciting things far more often than I ever dreamed of doing.

But last week was a new high: I had the opportunity to interview Benedict Cumberbatch for Marvel’s Doctor Strange.

I’m a serious fan of Benedict Cumberbatch and his cheekbones. In all seriousness, he’s one celebrity I never dreamed I’d have the opportunity to interview. I have him on a very high pedestal and I didn’t even consider the possibility of our paths crossing.

But my path did cross with Benedict Cumberbatch when I sat down with him and some other mom bloggers to talk about Marvel, Doctor Strange and a few other things.
