Deleted Scenes and Concepts

  • Originally, Scott Derrickson intended to make Nightmare the main villain of the movie, but Kevin Feige was against it. “Kevin made a very cogent case,” said Derrickson. “The trouble with starting with Nightmare is getting across the idea of the Dream Dimension as another dimension. The movie was challenging enough. It's already an exposition-heavy movie... Dormammu made the most sense. And he is the most present villain in the comics.”
  • The property master Barry Gibbs revealed that the Ebony Blade was meant to appear in the movie, alongside the other relics conserved in the New York Sanctum. "That was going to go into a book called the Lexicon of Relics, but the Ebony Blade was taken out of the script. I don't quite know why. Again, as things evolved, it wasn't pertinent to the script. Things just moved on." [3]
  • In an early draft of the movie, Stephen Strange was meant to become the Sorcerer Supreme by the end of the movie, but Derrickson and his crew had many many problems with that.
  • In concept art for the Chamber of Relics the Screaming Idol was featured.



Unorganized Trivia

  • Rachel McAdams' startled reaction in the broom closet of Metro-General Hospital was genuine, since the mop handle fell completely by accident, and scared McAdams almost out of her skin. Scott Derrickson decided to keep the reaction in the film, since she never broke character.
  • A post-credits caption promises "Doctor Strange will return".
