This Had Better Happen In The Doctor Strange Movie!!

One of the problems with modern magic heroes in comic books is all they do is stand around and throw colored lights at each other:




I mean, that's fun and all, and it's nice that we finally have a good enough CGI to portray that on the silver screen.

But back in the Golden Age, magicians actually did things, and made stuff happen:



See, now THAT'S what a comic book magician-hero should be doing!!

I'm sure that nothing remotely that cool will happen in the Doc Strange movie...

Yeah I was bummed when I saw the trailer for Dr. Strange and all the "magic stuff" looked just like Inception. I was REALLY hoping for some crazy Ditko-esque open mouths with fangs for portals and crazy paths through limbo type stuff.

The good doctor has never been a favorite of mine but I was at least hoping for a truly trippy visual experience.

Oh well they're going to get our money either way I guess.
