Community's Dan Harmon worked on the script for Doctor Strange

The Marvel Studios team are fond of recruiting talented people you might not think instantly think of for superhero movies. Case in point, Joe and Anthony Russo (Captain America: Civil War). Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, another unlikely name has been helping out with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, specifically Doctor Strange, as Community's Dan Harmon has been providing some additional moments and dialogue during re-shoots.

According to The Hollywood Reporter's source, Harmon was hired to write extra pages after the main shoot finished and was likely involved in adding his particular talents to certain moments when director and co-writer Scott Derrickson (Sinister) returned to fill in whatever else he needed.

Derrickson worked on the script with regular writing partner C. Robert Cargill (Sinister) and finds Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game) as Dr. Stephen Strange, an arrogant New York surgeon whose hands are badly injured in a car accident. Looking to help regain his skills, he turns to an unusual mystic and healer known as The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton). Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave) is fellow sorcery student (and potential future rival) Baron Mordo, with Rachel McAdams (About Time) as another New York based medic who serves as Strange's main connection back to humanity. And then there is Mads Mikkelsen (The Hunt) as the villainous Kaecilius.

Doctor Strange will arrive in cinemas 28 October.
