The MCU has been building an incredible roster with diverse films that span multiple genres. The latest stand alone film is set to be Doctor Strange. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and directed by famed horror director Scott Derrickson. Cumberbatch certainly seemed like the perfect choice for the wizardly character, and now we finally get to see him in full costume, which only solidifies that he was the right call for the lead role. Filming took to the streets of NYC and we now have our first looks at Strange, Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Baron Mordo, and Mads Mikkelson’s unidentified villain.
Cumberbatch certainly looks the part, and Ejiofor seems to be a more subdued character at least in terms of wardrobe. Mikkelson looks interesting to say the least and surely when they go in for CG touch ups and hit the editing bay they will all look that much better, but as of now, these images are all pretty awesome.
Doctor Strange also stars Rachel McAdams as a fellow surgeon that has a history with Strange, Tilda Swinton as the gender-swapped Ancient One, and Benedict Wong As Strange’s trusted associate, Wong. As well as Michael Stuhlbarg, Scott Adkins, and Amy Landecker in undisclosed roles.
