Doctor Strange | A Marvel Cinematic Universe Rewatch

The Marvel Cinematic Universe rewatch is here! Josh Wigler (@roundhoward) and Kevin Mahadeo (@KevMahadeo) have launched “Everything is Super,” a new superhero and comic book focused podcast on Post Show Recaps, beginning with a full deep dive into the MCU.

For the next several weeks, Josh and Kevin will focus on a different film from the MCU, in release order. Up next: Doctor Strange, a movie Josh and Kevin should by all rights thoroughly love, but instead are left with a tragic case of “meh.” Why doesn’t Doctor Strange work the way it should? Why oh why is it not a direct adaptation of Doctor Strange: The Oath, a comic book you all should make it a point to read right now? Josh and Kevin get into all that and more.

Coming next: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Send feedback no later than July 29 by e-mailing [email protected]postshowrecaps.com
