LONDON: Producer Kevin Feige says using magic during action shots in upcoming sci-fi film "Doctor Strange" was quite challenging.

The 43-year-old American film producer, also the President of Marvel Studios, revealed that the biggest challenge he faced while filming the Benedict Cumberbatch-starrer was shooting the "action sequences", reported Female First.

"The use of magic for action sequences was something that took a long time to figure out what road to take. We did not- and (director) Scott (Derrickson) was very smart- in not wanting it to simply be someone shoots a bolt of lightning. "There are interpretations of that. But we wanted to do something different, and we wanted to tap into this notion of the multiverse, of dimensions right next to our own," he said.

Feige believes that his team has been successful in finding a right solution for "light blast".

"We've seen light blast versus light blast before. Again, there's some of that in this movie for impact, and for dynamic attacks, but really this is about, and the sort of four main action scenes have been structured around which power from which dimensions are they going to be use to screw with our world now...

"So something that starts as a footchase becomes totally unrecognisable," he added.
