Dr. Strange has already appeared in two movies. The first was a failed TV series pilot made in 1978. It was pretty cool for its time, but special effects of the day were not up to the job, especially on the low budget it had. The second is the 2007 animated film. It was release straight to video. The animation is a bit simple, and the script is weak, but it captures the comic books well, and is worth a watch as a teaser for the upcoming live action film, if you know don’t mind knowing part of what will happen in the upcoming live action film.
