‘Doctor Strange’ Set Photos Reveal New Looks at the Sorcerer Supreme

By April 2, 2016

I’d say that as of right now, Doctor Strange is looking more and more like Marvel’s most interesting and unique film to date. By bringing the Sorcerer Supreme to life (played by Benedict Cumberbatch), the film will be exploring and opening up a corner of the MCU that we’ve only barely scratched the surface of, and much like Guardians of the Galaxy did, I have a feeling this could be one of the studio’s best outings.

After the release of some stellar set and official images from the film a few months ago as well, which revealed our first looks at Cumberbatch in costume as Stephen Strange, Chiwetel Ejiofor in costume as Baron Mordo, and some crazy concept art as well, some new set images from the film have surfaced online, and this time – they’ve taken the action to New York City.

The new images (H/T ComingSoon) feature Cumberbatch’s Strange and Ejiofor’s Mordo standing in the middle of a NYC street, in costume, seemingly facing down what we can only assume is going to be a mystical foe of some kind. You can check out the new images below, which warning – will probably just make you fall even more in love with the Doctor Strange costume:

Marvel head Kevin Feige, and director Scott Derrickson have previously said that the film will show fans images and events in the MCU that they never would have dreamed of seeing before, and I’ll admit, as much as I might have hoped to – I didn’t think I’d ever actually see the Sorcerer Supreme standing calmly in the middle of New York City, dressed in his mystical wear.

With a cast that seems more fitting of a end of the year Oscar contender than an average comic book movie – including the previously mentioned Cumberbatch and Ejiofor, in addition to Rachel McAdams as the female lead, Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, Mads Mikkelsen, Michael Stuhlbarg, Amy Landecker and more – this is shaping up to be the kind of comic book adaptation that I think fans probably only thought they’d see happen in their wildest dreams. Although, the same can also be said for probably all of Marvel’s films over the past few years, I guess.

Doctor Strange will hit theatres on November 8th.

    I don’t ever remember buying or even reading Doctor Strange growing up so the story line is a blank to Me. I have also been rather disappointed in most of the Directors works up until this point. BUT with the actors He has to work with & hopefully a decent screenplay (fingers crossed) this will be right up there with most of the Marvelverse so far; even though the Netflixverse has been My favorite source so far.
