doctor strange photo

I won’t even try to hide my excitement for Marvel Studios’ upcoming Doctor Strange, which looks to take the Marvel Cinematic Universe down a refreshingly, uh, strange left turn. Dr. Stephen Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme, Marvel’s master of mysticism, is one of my all-time favorite comic book characters and that fact that he’s getting a movie makes me giddy. Stupidly giddy.

The character’s cinematic look was initially unveiled on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, but we got a fresh look a few days ago when the film’s production moved to New York City and star Benedict Cumberbatch stopped by a comic book store in full costume. Now a new, official Doctor Strange photo has arrived, offering us another look what a retired surgeon turned master magician looks like.

Doctor Strange Photos

Over the weekend, production wrapped on Marvel’s forthcoming mystic comic book flick Doctor Strange. There have been some set photos making the rounds, but since copyrights can be tricky for those kind of images we won’t post them here.

But what we can post are some images that a comic book store manager posted when Benedict Cumberbatch decided to pay a visit while still in his full Doctor Strange wardrobe. Plus, Marvel posted a picture of Cumberbatch in the shop with comic book in hand. See the Doctor Strange photos below! Read More »

Doctor Strange concept art

It’s not especially difficult to picture Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange. He was a top fan-cast pick long before he was officially announced, and there are countless pieces of fan art floating out there in the ether already. But as of today, we no longer have to rely on the power of our imaginations. The first official image of Cumberbatch as the magical Marvel superhero has just been released, and you can check it out after the jump.

UPDATE (12/28/15): More images from Doctor Strange have just been revealed, and you can peruse them all after the jump. Plus, new info on Mads Mikkelsen‘s character.

UPDATE (1/7/16): High-res, watermark-free versions of the Doctor Strange stills have been revealed, and you can see them below.

doctor strange sanctum sanctorum

Every superhero has a place where they can take a load off, put up their feet, and get away from the world for a little while. Batman has the Batcave, Superman the Fortress of Solitude. Across the aisle, Thor can chill out in Asgard, Tony Stark in Avengers Tower, and Spider-Man in Aunt May’s second bedroom. However, the coolest secret lair/base of operations in all of Marvel-dom has always been Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum, a house that is filled with countless magical items and magical artifacts and all of the perils that accompany keeping those items in one place.

We already received one glimpse of what this place will look like in Scott Derrickson‘s upcoming Doctor Strange movie back when the first photos of Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme were released. Now, Marvel has released another glimpse at this mystical manor and it may look a little familiar to seasoned comic book fans.

The War Magician

Next fall we’ll see Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch get mystical in Marvel Studios’ Phase Three project Doctor Strange, but after that, he’s going to get magical with a true story out of World War II.

Cumberbatch, who was just recently seen as a controversially androgynous model in Zoolander 2, has been attached to star in The War Magician, a thriller about a world famous magician who used his sleight-of-hand tricks and stunts to help the Allied forces defeat the Nazis. That sounds like something a writer would make up, but it’s actually true. Read More »
