While Marvel’s Doctor Strange 2 has impressed many fans throughout the globe, Here’s what Kevin Feige changed in the third act.
Speaking with Marvel.com, Music composer Danny Elfman said, “When Sam Raimi first described it to me, I said to Sam, 'I don't know what the hell you're talking about.”
He added, “The scene in question sees Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange encounter a variant of himself in a reality nearly torn asunder by an incursion, an event in which two realities collide.”
He also said, “As Doctor Strange and the darker, malevolent Sinister Strange do battle, the two sorcerers conjure musical notes off the pages scattered in the surrounding room.”
He added, “It was working various classical pieces against each other, kind of famous pieces.”
Elfman said, “Then, in the very 59th minute of the 11th hour, at the very end, Kevin Feige jumped in and said to just simplify it to Beethoven versus Bach.”
He added, “I did one more pass at it where it was Beethoven’s '5th Symphony' against Bach's 'Toccata and Fugue.' It really worked out perfectly.”
