Benedict Cumberbatch’s DOCTOR STRANGE Revealed
Marvel Studios, producer of such hits as Iron Man, The Avengers, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Ant-Man, is hard at work bringing yet another B-list Marvel Comics character to the big screen: Doctor Strange. While we’ve caught a glimpse at Stephen Strange actor Benedict Cumberbatch on the set, Entertainment Weekly has unveiled the first official look at the Sherlock actor as the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel universe – and the Academy Award nominated actor looks like he stepped out of the pages of a Marvel comic:
Doctor Strange follows the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.
Doctor Strange is the latest film in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Phase 3’s goal—over the course of four years and nine films—is to introduce audiences to new heroes and continue the adventures of fan favorites.
Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen, and opens November 4, 2016. We can most likely expect a trailer to be attached to Captain America: Civil War in May.
