After his career is destroyed, a brilliant but arrogant and conceited surgeon gets a new lease on life when a sorcerer takes him under his wing and trains him to defend the world against evil.
Fun fact: Benedict Cumberbatch was the first choice and was offered the lead role of Stephen Strange. He had to decline due to his theatre commitments playing Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Joaquin Phoenix was the studio’s second choice for the lead role but Phoenix declined because the studio obviously wants him for additional films and Phoenix did not want that. When the release date got pushed, Cumberbatch was able to work out his scheduling conflicts, which allowed him to accept the offer of Stephen Strange.
