How They Did The Time-Reversal Fight In Doctor Strange

One of the most unique things in a very unique Doctor Strange movie was the time-reversal fight scene in Hong Kong. Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) uses the Eye of Agamatto, which is an Infinity Stone, to undo the destructive battle and the opening of the portal to the Dark Dimension. Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) and Strange arrive after Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen) and the disciples have defeated Wong (Benedict Wong) and the others trying to defend the Hong Kong sanctum. We get to see the reversal of time as destruction is undone but the sorcerers fight while this is happening.

Below you will see some concept art used to conceptualize the scene as well as two behind-the-scenes clips showing the physical set and the special effects used to create the fight.

Doctor Strange is available now on Digital HD and will be out on Blu-ray / DVD on February 28th.
