Following the debut of new set photos yesterday afternoon, which took the film’s production into the streets of New York City, even more set photos (via Twitter) from Marvel’s Doctor Strange have found their way online and while the last batch gave us new looks at Benedict Cumberbatch and Chiwetel Ejiofor’s characters in costume, the newest photos reveal our first look at Mads Mikkelsen’s currently unknown villain.
With cracked, mystical eyes of some kind and robes similar to Strange and Baron Mordo’s, it’s hard to pin down who for certain he could be playing in the film, although there do seem to be more than a few theories going around already.
Check out the images below:
So after looking at the images above, and the frankly, little that we know about the film’s story, it’s somewhat impossible to know for sure who Mikkelsen’s character is. As of right now though, I’m leaning towards two prevailing theories. The first is that he could be someone, possibly a student of the Ancient One, who became a physical host for Dormmamu, the rumor of the Dark Dimension, who’s trying to find a way into the mortal world – hence why Mikkelsen’s eyes are slightly cracked and seem to be deteriorating in some way.
Another theory that I personally like, is that he could be playing Nightmare, who Strange has had many conflicts with in the comics, and could be a fitting villain for the character’s introductory film into the MCU, though I don’t know if his powers would necessarily call for Mordo and Strange teaming up to take down. Either way, Mikkelsen looks impressive here, and the costumes and makeup designs for this film are continuing to make me excited. I can’t imagine what all of this is going to look like by the time the film ends up hitting the silver screen in a few months.
Doctor Strange will hit theatres on November 4th.
