I?ve already shared the EW cover that shows Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. They?ve now released more photos of the good Doctor along with some cool concept art. We get to see his Sanctum Sanctorum along with the aftermath of the accident that damaged his hands and caused him to head off to follow the mystic arts. It also looks like it will have some of the trippy psychedelic imagery from the original comics.
Cumberbatch also spoke about playing the character and bringing his magic to the big screen.
There?s all sorts of craziness. ?Falling, flying, jumping, fighting, punching, getting punched. It?s really rough and tumble.
Producer Kevin Feige also talked about the film.
[Benedict] was someone that we were very interested in for a very long time, but he kept getting more popular, and more popular, and he kept getting busier, and busier, and it looked like the timing wasn?t going to work. So we looked at some other actors for a while and ultimately decided, ?We have to try and make it work with Benedict and with his schedule.?
Scott Derrickson is directing the film. Doctor Strange also stars Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Tilda Swinton is set to play the Ancient One.
All in all, it is looking very good and rather faithful to the comic. Hopefully, there will be some footage released soon.
