Pretty much. It's a similar situation to what happened to Red Skull in the first Cap.

I'd probably give it a 7/10.
Not much to add really, except the film hints at greater moral ambiguities within its narrative without really exploring them, which robs it of a significant amount of dramatic heft. To say it's aggressively safe would be an understatement, but it's still a lot of fun.
Oh and Mikkelsen was utterly wasted here.

Yes, but both of those films have entirely different objectives.

The only scene that I loved was Strange being shown the mystical universe. I wish the movie had more of those trippy visuals, but they got pretty obvious and safe towards the end. Cumberbatch was very impressive and made the character his own, probably the best performance from a lead Marvel character since the first Iron Man, but there was a voice at the back of my head throughout the movie saying "Imagine if Joaquin delivered these lines..."

Imagine if Phoenix delivered the Beyonce line? I'd rather not.
