Doctor Strange Reshoots
It’s becoming a norm for Disney and Marvel movies to go back for reshoots and now Doctor Strange is being given the same treatment. Despite principal photography being completed several months ago, Marvel has tapped Community creator, Dan Harmon to pen new script pages for the upcoming film featuring the Sorcerer Supreme. Harmon’s inclusion could hint at Marvel planning to lighten the tone of the film somewhat, which could mean more humour in several scenes. Doctor Strange opens in cinemas this November.
