Doctor Strange director says the magic in the movie will never be explained scientifically

There's nothing worse than magic being explained away in movies by advanced science. No one needs to know about waves and particles. Thankfully Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson is of the same mindset. "Magic is magic in this movie. It's not something that's explained away scientifically," he said when we caught up with him at Comic Con.

"It's not something that's easy to define. As magic should be. Magic should be mysterious. There's mystery to magic and there's mystery to the tone of the movie. Mystery is a good thing". Hear, hear. Check out the video above for more teases about the movie's place in the MCU and Derrickson's thoughts on Benedict Cumberbatch. Spoilers: he likes him.
