Even as fans and critics rave about Captain America: Civil War and all the new characters it brings, Disney is getting ready to introduce its next new hero into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the superhero of the same name, an arrogant surgeon who, while attempting to heal himself after a devastating car accident, stumbled into the discovery of magic.
Directed by Scott Derrickson, the movie promises to venture into the more mystical corners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. And much to fans’ relief, the set photos have strongly suggested that the film won’t back down from the weirder aspects of the character and his many bizarre adventures. The very first Doctor Strange trailer is due to arrive tonight on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but to tide us over in the meantime, Marvel has just dropped the very first Doctor Strange poster. Check it out below. Read More »

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.
