On Thursday night, ComicBook.com will play host to a Quarantine Watch Party with Marvel’s Doctor Strange movie. The event will have a special guest on hand in the form of Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson, hosted throughout by ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis. The film debuted in 2016, introducing the Marvel Comics character to the interconnected big screen universe for the first time before he went on to appear in Thor: Ragnarok, Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. Derrickson will be on Twitter using #QuarantineWatchParty throughout the movie, sharing insider info, fun facts, and other content from behind-the-scenes!
How does it work? Simple. At 9 p.m. ET on Thursday night, everybody who wishes to attend the Quarantine Watch Party presses “play” on their copy of Doctor Strange, be it a 4K or blu-ray disc, a digital download, or stream from Disney+. From there, those attending the Party follow and use #QuarantineWatchParty on Instagram and Twitter to stay involved with the conversation throughout the movie. The best tweets will get featured in ComicBook.com’s official recap of the event!
Derrickson is the first Marvel Cinematic Universe director to join the Quarantine Watch Party event as other special Marvel events may arrive as soon as next week! Recently, Birds of Prey director Cathy Yan and the film’s stars Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Ella Jay Basco joined a Quarantine Watch Party, following an event with Bloodshot‘s director Dave Wilson and star Sam Heughan.
The Quarantine Watch Party offers plenty of reasons to stay home, be safe, and have fun together! The Quarantine Watch Party will be hosted by ComicBook.com’s Brandon Davis, as well as other staff members including Adam Barnhardt, Evan Valentine, Megan Peters, Joseph Schmidt, and ComicBook Nation co-host Janell Wheeler.
