The onslaught of Doctor Strange promotional materials continued today with more set visit info, more teases, and more character posters like the ones below, which feature Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Mads Mikkelsen careening through a kaleidoscopic multiverse of New York Cities. These are the sorcerers of Kamar-Taj, the remote Tibetan home of the Ancient One (Swinton) and her disciplines in the matters of the macabre and the magical.

First up, there’s Swinton as the Ancient One, striking a pose I like to call “The Ethereal Palm Strike.” Clicking this or any of the posters below will get you even bigger versions to examine, by the way:


Next there’s Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, who begins the film as the buddy of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Stephen Strange, and slowly gives in to his sinister impulses. I’m currently reading old issues of Doctor Strange on the Marvel Unlimited app, and this concept definitely recalls Mordo’s origin as a fellow disciple of the Ancient One whose hunger for power eventually drives him mad, forcing Strange to spring into action to defend his teacher:


Finally, there’s Mads Mikkelsen as Kaecillius, a character I literally know nothing about. But from this poster I can tell he’s got a sword! So that’s one thing. And he likes eye shadow too? He’s also apparently the primary antagonist of the first Strange film as well.

These posters are all hitting hard on New York City and London turning into this frenetic swirl where up is down and good is bad. This sequence better deliver; it seems like a lot of the movie rests on it. Rather than tell you when Doctor Strange opens, I’ll let the movie’s official Twitter account handle that with this cool new animated image.

Also, you’ll find the rest of the Doctor Strange character posters, along with more Strange images in the gallery below.
