Marvel Reveals More Mind-Bending ‘Doctor Strange’ Photos
Following yesterday’s reveal of two images from Doctor Strange, Marvel has revealed even more new photos from the Sorcerer Supreme’s upcoming solo film. And while the gallery above features several stills of Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange, you’ll also find some new sneak peeks at Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Baron Mordo and Mads Mikkelsen’s villainous Kaecilius, as well as our first good look at Benedict Wong as Wong. Oh, and there’s plenty of those mind-bending, Inception-style landscape shots, too.
Marvel debuted several new images from Doctor Strange, many of which show off the film’s mystical elements and reality-twisting trickery. In addition to giving us new looks at Baron Mordo and Wong, the photos offer a more detailed look at Mads Mikkelsen’s villain. The former Hannibal star plays Kaecilius, one of the lesser-known baddies from the comics, which has some fans thinking that he’s not necessarily the only villain in the film. (Mordo’s history with Strange is a bit…troubled, to say the least.)
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, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.
Doctor Strange also stars Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg (who has been strangely absent from the promotional materials), Scott Adkins and Amy Landecker, and hits theaters on November 4.
