Doctor Strange Learning the Science Behind the SpellsDoctor Strange is one of those Marvel superheroes who just never got his due. Maybe it’s because the character spent a little too much time exploring the dark side. Either way, a movie is on its way, and a quick update on its status has come.

During an interview with io9 Sean Carroll, a theoretical physicist at the California Institute of Technology who served as an advisor on the science behind Thor, dropped this latest bit of goodness.

Now that Carroll’s done with Thor, he’s moved on to Doctor Strange, about a surgeon who becomes earth’s Sorcerer Supreme. Carroll’s job is to apply limits to Strange’s powers. “You need constraints to provide tension,” he says. “A world where anything can happen makes for a very boring movie. It’s when science imposes boundaries on what a superhero can do that the real drama begins.

Writers Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Donnelly turned in their script for the Doctor Strange film a while back, and Marvel is pushing forward with the property.

Created in 1963, Doctor Strange is the story of an arrogant surgeon who is injured in a car accident and goes on to become the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel universe. Using his magical powers, Strange protects the earth from attacks from other realms.

Look for more on this one soon.
