Trivia Doctor Strange

Cinematographer Ben Davis cites Disney film 'Fantasia' as one of his visual influences when he says that 'Doctor Strange' "has a very psychedelic grounding" and that most of the work focuses on "other dimensions". The creators of Doctor Strange, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, were inspired by Hollywood actor Vincent Price to build the character. The doctor even bears the middle name Vincent. The character played by Tilda Swinton changes sex in their adaptation to the big screen since in the comics the Ancient One was an old wizard.
