Marvel’s New Strategy?
Marvel is known for going against the usual film-release strategy of revealing a new movie in the US first and then bringing it over seas. For Captain America: Civil War earlier this year, we were also given the film first. It is a strategy that has been working well – both for Marvel and Irish and British fans alike!
The film stars Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch and follows Doctor Strange, a surgeon who is involved in a life-changing accident.
Doctor Strange will hit Irish and British cinemas of the newer date of October 25.
