Doctor Strange is definitely on the "stranger" side of Marvel's comic book properties, incorporating magic and time travel rather than the normal superhero fare fans are used to. This film is sure to be a VFX heavy film, that may actually benefit greatly from the current 3D technology.
In an interview with Collider, Marvel chief and Doctor Strange producer Kevin Feige revealed that an early look at the VFX in New York has been “pretty exciting.”
It was pretty cool in terms of how 3D can serve that story. You know, sometimes 3D is a tool, like it is in [Captain America: Civil War], a tool of – another toy in the sandbox of how the Russos (Joe and Anthony) can present this movie, then there are times like what Disney is putting out with The Jungle Book – it’s certainly gonna be the case with Doctor Strange– that it serves the storytelling, that it advances the storytelling. And hopefully it helps bend people’s minds even more than with just the flat screen.

Here's the film's synopsis:
Before he met the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange was an unlikable and egotistical neurosurgeon.
