Through an exclusive clip from the new “Marvel Cinematic Universe: Phase 2 Collection” set, a new concept art and a featurette of this upcoming superhero film have debuted online.
“Doctor Strange”, which is one of the highly anticipated movies in the 3rd phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), is being directed by Scott Derrickson (of “Sinister” and “Deliver Us From Evil” fame) based on a screenplay written by “The Mummy” reboot scribe Jon Spaihts (of “Prometheus” fame).
Through a featurette, Feige and Derrickson discussed about the Benedict Cumberbatch-starred film, which Derrickson referred to as “a mind-trip action film”. They explained that it was vital for them to have a brilliant actor to play the role of Stephen Strange, further stating that “Benedict has got an incredibly complicated emotional structure going on”.
Since the film will introduce the “mind-trippy” supernatural side of Marvel’s Universe, Feige also revealed that they will definitely put Strange’s unique abilities into the MCU. He said:
How do you put that on a screen within this cinematic universe? That is one of the primary goals of that movie.
The featurette also ended with a concept art of “Doctor Strange”, offering fans a glimpse at Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme.
Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” will follow the story of Doctor Stephen Strange, a cocky neurosurgeon who discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions after a horrific car accident.
“Sherlock” star Benedict Cumberbatch is confirmed to be playing Doctor Stephen Strange aka the Sorcerer Supreme in the film. Rachel McAdams is attached to play the female lead, though her role is kept under wraps. The film will also star Tilda Swinton will play the Ancient One and Chiwetel Ejiofor as the good doctor’s arch foe, Baron Mordo. “Hannibal” and “Star Wars: Rogue One” star Mads Mikkelsen is rumoured to be playing a villain while Michael Stuhlbarg and Scott Adkins are starring in undisclosed roles.
Earlier in November, Cumberbatch was spotted shooting the film in Nepal. Filming will continue to take place in few other locations around the world, including London, New York, and Hong Kong.
