Syd-era Pink Floyd song featured in new ‘Doctor Strange’ movie; tickets for Roger Waters ‘Us + Them’ tour on sale
Pink Floyd and Marvel comic Doctor Strange have been intertwined ever since the band hid some of Marie Severin illustrations from Strange Tales #158 in the cover art of their second album, A Saucerful of Secrets. Scott Derrickson, who directed the upcoming big screen Doctor Strange adaptation starring Benedict Cumberbatch, is furthering the connection. In a Reddit AMA, Derrickson (who is prone to tweeting out Floyd lyrics) said he's using a Syd-era song in the film. What one? We'll have to wait to see. There's more, though, as Michael Giacchino's score for the film definitely evokes some Floydian spacerock (and baroque Morricone-isms too). You can check out the very cool end credits theme "Master of the Mystic" below.
