Check out details on a Doctor Strange deleted scene shared by director Scott Derrickson which is straight out of the Marvel comic books.

Scott Derrickson tells Collider the following (via Cinema Blend) about a Doctor Strange deleted scene and that he hopes makes its way into the Doctor Strange Blu-Ray:

We shot a scene... you know, in the comics, if you know the comics well, Strange has a backstory where his sister died when he was young, and that she drowned. That had a real significant effect, and was probably instrumental in him becoming a doctor. And we shot that scene, and I loved that scene. It was a really great scene. It just didn't fit in the movie. It felt like... it just didn't work. But the self-contained scene by itself, I thought it was great. And Lulu [Wilson], who was the little girl in Ouija and was in Deliver Us From Evil, played the girl. So I hope that scene's on the DVD.

I've seen Doctor Strange, and I think it was a good decision to cut the above scene as it would have made the audience sympathize more with Dr. Stephen Strange, which is opposite to the build up of what we were given in the theatrical release (trying to avoid stating specific spoilers).

"Doctor Strange" has a November 4, 2016 release directed by Scott Derrickson starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Benedict Wong, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen.

Synopsis:

Marvel’s Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilising a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.
