‘Doctor Strange’ Debuts Some Mystical New Concept Art
We’re 10 months away from the release of Doctor Strange, and probably just a few months out from the first official trailer, which will likely debut with Captain America: Civil War in May. While you patiently wait to see Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme in action, Marvel has released some new concept art along with high-def versions of those official photos that previously appeared in Entertainment Weekly.
You can check out the new images above, which include the previously seen photos as well as some very interesting concept art that shows off the Sanctum Sanctorum (say that five times fast), the unfortunate outcome of Stephen Strange’s accident, and what appears to be some sort of trippy, transformative sequence. Marvel’s Kevin Feige previously hinted that the film would introduce the mystical hero’s famous Eye of Agamotto as the next Infinity Stone — likely the time stone, as Feige noted that Doctor Strange will “screw around with time.”
Here’s the rather slim synopsis from Marvel:
“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 also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, Michael Stuhlbarg as Dr. Nicodemus West, Mads Mikkelsen as the film’s mysterious villain and Rachel McAdams in an undisclosed role — though recent comments from Feige indicate she’s either playing an updated version of Night Nurse or another similar character.
Doctor Strange hits theaters on November 4, 2016.
