With a brief mention in Captain America: Winter Soldier and an upcoming live action solo movie starring Benedict Cumberbatch premiering in November 2016, Doctor Strange is set to become one of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s most popular characters over the next few years.
Here are seven highly recommended pieces of Doctor Strange merchandise for those wanting to get in on the ground floor before the Sorceror Supreme becomes a household name.
Doctor Strange Funko POP Figure
The super-popular Funko POP line of collectible figures recently added Doctor Strange to their lineup. This specific figure is based on the classic Marvel Comics Doctor Strange character design. Available from Amazon.com
Marvel Animated Features: Doctor Strange
This rather impressively animated Doctor Strange movie came out in 2007 and is a fantastic primer for Marvel fans with little to no knowledge of the Doctor Strange characters and storyline. The characters are very similar to their comic book counterparts yet the plot has been modernised enough to make it interesting for current audiences. The live action MCU film is expected to follow a very similar storyline to the one used here. Available from: Amazon.com / FishPond.com.au
Doctor Strange T-Shirt
This official Marvel T-shirt harkens back to Doctor Strange’s classic comic book origins with a glorious retro piece of comic book artwork. The wearer is bound to get a lot of geek cred wearing this. Available from Amazon.com
Marvel Masterworks: Doctor Strange Volume 1
This large trade paperback collects all of Doctor Strange’s first appearances in the classic Strange Tales and The Amazing Spider-man comic book series. Recommended for fans of old-school comics and pop art. Available from: Amazon.com / FishPond.com.au
Doctor Strange Vol.1: The Way of the Weird
Interested in Doctor Strange’s modern comic book adventures? This trade paperback contains the first several issues of the recently rebooted comic book series that began in 2016. With the live action movie on the horizon, Marvel has put a lot of energy into the franchise’s fresh direction and has given the new series a fantastic writer in Jason Aaron and a perfectly suited artist in Chris Bachalo. Available from: Amazon.com / FishPond.com.au
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes Video Game
By far one of the best LEGO video games, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes contains almost every Marvel Comics character imaginable from the X-Men, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Avengers to Black Panther, Daredevil, Iron Fist, and Spider-Man. Doctor Strange is also in the game and, once unlocked, can be used to play in all of the other areas. He even has his own bonus level!
There is a sequel to this game, LEGO Marvel’s Avengers, which also features Doctor Strange but LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is by far the superior entry and should be the title all gamers pick up first, especially for fans of the X-Men whose characters aren’t in the sequel at all. Available from: Amazon.com / FishPond.com.au
Diamond Select Toys Marvel Gallery Doctor Strange Figure
This highly detailed Doctor Strange model is due out in late 2016 and looks simply stunning. A great idea for a Marvel fan’s birthday or Christmas present and is going to be very hard to buy once the Doctor Strange Movie comes out. Pre-order ASAP! Available from Amazon.com
