Entertainment Weekly has just dropped a handful of new photos for Disney and Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange movie, having just come out with an issue featuring the film. The images include pics of Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular character as well as concept art from the production.
Directed by Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) from a script by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), the comic-book adaptation is set to hit screens November 4, 2016 and will be an origin story of how neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange discovers a hidden universe of alternate dimensions and magical abilities. Cumberbatch stars alongside Chiwetel Ejiofor (Baron Mordo), Tilda Swinton (The Ancient One).
The feature story also reveals the roles to be played by previously announced co-stars Rachel McAdams and Mads Mikkelsen. While the characters remain unnamed, exec producer Stephen Broussard told the magazine that Mikkelsen will be the main villain who is a renegade sorcerer, while McAdams plays a fellow surgeon that has a history with Strange and serves as a connection between the main character’s past and his world-changing transformation.
Additional cast includes Michael Stuhlbarg, Scott Adkins and Amy Landecker.
Oh boy, my dream of seeing two of my favorite Sherlocks in the same room better happen if Dr. Strange and Iron Man ever meet up. XD
