Speaking at a BAFTA Masterclass (reported by ScreenDaily), Doctor Strange cinematographer Ben Davis said the film would have a "dark" palette and "psychedelic grounding."

“It has a very psychedelic grounding, and it’s not your typical Marvel action movie,” said Davis. “Most of the work within it is about other dimensions. And I described it, I think, when I was talking to Marvel as Marvel’s Fantasia, in a way, because it’s so sort of out there and different to everything else that they’ve done.”

“There’s a lot of previsualisation, and there’s a lot of work which is very hard – you look at it and you see the imagery that they’ve created for it and you think, ‘well how the hell do we shoot that!?’ because it’s all sort of Escher stuff,” Davis said of the film’s setting.

“It’s all very out there. I can’t really say much more about it, I’m afraid. But I think it’ll be really interesting, and it’s a very dark movie, I’m pleased to say.”

Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch in the titular role, and is set to hit theaters November 4, 2016.
