Sam Raimi also said, “Well, she adds an exciting spirit of youth. She’s a newcomer to her powers and to our world. She actually comes from another universe. I think she brings a sense of lightness and youth. Benedict Cumberbatch‘s Doctor Strange can be a very egotistical and stuffy character, a know-it-all. She just flies in the face of that. Doesn’t really have respect for him originally. She sees right through the fronts that he puts up. She’s much more down-to-earth and one of us, and she doesn’t take his attitude. I don’t think he likes that at first. So, she creates a contrast.”
