"I think really it's to do with the idea that the 'internet's boyfriend' can't actually belong to anyone else but the internet. 'It's impossible he belongs to anyone but me'.

"And that's what stalking is. That's what obsessive, deluded, really scary behaviour is."

Doctor Strange will hit UK cinemas on October 25.
