Thanks to Entertainment Weekly we may take a look to the first official pictures of Doctor Strange, the upcoming live-action superhero movie adaptation directed by Scott Derrickson and starring Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role:
“After his career is destroyed, a brilliant but arrogant surgeon (Benedict Cumberbatch) gets a new lease on life when a sorcerer takes him under his wing and trains him to defend the world against evil.”
Well, Actor Benedict Cumberbatch totally looks the part as Doctor Strange! Let’s hope he will stick to this Marvel character and will never reprise the role of Khan in the Star Trek franchise, lol.
We also learned that Actor Mads Mikkelsen is playing the film’s villain who’s described as a sorcerer who breaks off into his own sect.
The movie Doctor Strange is set to hit theaters on November 4, 2016.
Update – an additional concept art picture featuring Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum:
