First Photos of Marvel Movie's Doctor Strange
Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Monday, December 28, 2015
The first official photos showing Benedict Cumberbatch as Marvel's movie version of Doctor Strange have been released. The good doctor has the cover of this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly, as well as several interior shots showing Strange wearing his magical costume and the mystical Eye of Agamotto, the pendant that lies on his chest and gives him considerable magical power.
In EW's piece there's an interview with Cumberbatch where he reveals that he's well aware of the level of detail that fans of Doctor Strange will be applying to his performance. "I’m still in the infancy of learning all that. It was like, okay, I’ve got to keep throwing these poses, these spells, these rune-casting things, everything he does physically," Cumberbatch remarked. "I’m thinking, there’s going to be a huge amount of speculation and intrigue over the positioning of that finger as opposed to it being there, or there. And I’m still working on that. We haven’t played any of those scenes yet. I felt really self-conscious. But, then, by the end, it was great. It’s like anything, you just have to experiment.”
The photo below is practically a live-action remake of the Doctor Strange comic art that we've seen before:
And there was this shot, which looks more conceptual than any true digital special effects shot, of what appears to be Doctor Strange in an astral plane setting:
It also appears that Strange's home on Bleeker Street will have displays of his arcane artifacts and magician's robe. Perhaps a nod to Tony Stark/Iron Man's armor room?
The second movie in Marvel's Phase Three plans, the Doctor Strange movie arrives in theaters on November 4, 2016.
