America’s favorite anomalous warlock, Doctor Strange, is back in the news with a gag reel exclusive to Nerdist. What’s sure to be a larger collection of goofs, gags, outtakes, and adlib wars was broken down into a neatly digestible form of a 50-second video posted to the site. While some people view gag reels as throwaway forms of bonus content meant to make the viewer feel like they got something extra, they’re also an insightful glance into the soul of films that can take up to years to finish filming. They’re a fantastic look into the way actors/actresses break up the monotony and stress of meeting deadlines with what they hope is a quality product. The video below is courtesy of Comicbook.com
Doctor Strange will have little worry as to the question of popularity and this gag reel looks to be one of many outstanding features to be included with the film, per Nerdist.
In addition to the gag reel, the home video release includes exclusive looks at Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, and Avengers: Infinity War; featurettes about the making-of Doctor Strange; deleted scenes; audio commentary from director Scott Derrickson; a comedic short reuniting Thor and his roommate Darryl; and much more.
Fans looking to get their hands on the Sorcerer Supreme’s first entry to the Marvel Cinematic Universe won’t have to wait much longer. The digital copy will be available on February 14th and the physical release will hit shelves exactly two weeks later on February 28th. Now is the perfect time to get the gift of Benedict Cumberbatch for your loved one or simply just a perfect opportunity to stock your shelf with another quality title from England’s newest treasure.
