"Doctor Strange" plot
"Doctor Strange" is about the life of Doctor Stephen Strange, an egotistical neurosurgeon. His character was unlikable during the first part of the movie, but everything changed when Strange met a car accident, which limited the use of his hands. Strange's hands were too damaged to do anything, much more to do surgery. Strange swore he would find a cure for his condition and this led him to take his ego aside and embrace the realm of mystery and alternate dimensions.
The movie is based in Greenwich Village in New York City, where Doctor Strange has become an intermediary between the real and the metaphysical worlds. Strange started to work on his powers and his abilities to guard the Marvel cinematic universe.
