Our First Look At Benedict Cumberbatch As Doctor Strange Is Absolutely Magical

…Master Of The Mystic Arts….

Doctor_Strange_BannerWhen Marvel announced that they were moving forward with a Doctor Strange film, fans rejoiced.  When Marvel announced that Doctor Stephen Vincent Strange would be played by Benedict Cumberbatch, fans became ravenous for ANY info on the film.

Screen Shot 2015-12-28 at 9.56.23 AMToday, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY revealed some exclusive images showing Benedict as The Sourcerer Supreme and they are sensational.

Strange_Tales_110_Cover_Doctor_Strange DSCreated by artist Steve Ditko during the Silver Age of comics in 1963, Doctor Strange first appeared in STRANGE TALES #110 and has been and remains one of Marvel’s most powerful characters.

DS3Dr Stephen Strange started as a brilliant doctor but when a car accident leaves him unable to pursue his passion of surgery and healing people he starts looking for way to heal his impaired hands and return to his former greatness.

DS4In his search, Strange comes across an individual known as The Ancient One, high in the Himalayas.  After awhile, he gains the trust of this powerful being and becomes his trusted apprentice and learns the mystic arts.

DS1Strange is unlike any character we have seen from Marvel as he deals in magic, mystical forces and foes from bizarre realms and alternate dimensions.  With Cumberbatch in the lead role and Scott Derrickson in the Director’s chair, we are in for one hell of a ride. The supporting cast is pretty amazing as well including: Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Mads Mikkelsen.

DS2We are pretty confident that this image is Strange’s lair, the “Sanctum Sanctorum”.  You can see the Cloak of Levitation and we can only assume that the other things on display are things like the Eye of Agamotto, the Book of the Vishanti, the Orb of Agamotto among other things.


Here is how Marvel describes the good Doctor over on their OFFICIAL WEBSITE.

Doctor Strange is a skilled athlete and martial artist with substantial medical and magical knowledge. Though an expert surgeon, Strange’s nerve-damaged hands prevent him from performing surgery except when supplemented by magic.

Doctor-Strange-concept-artDoctor Strange is one of the most powerful sorcerers in existence. Like most sorcerers, he draws his power from three primary sources: the invocation of powerful mystic entities or objects, the manipulation of the universe’s ambient magical energy, and his own psychic resources. Strange’s magical repertoire includes energy projection and manipulation, matter transformation, animation of inanimate objects, teleportation, illusion-casting, mesmerism, thought projection, astral projection, dimensional travel, time travel and mental possession, to name a few. The full range of his abilities is unknown. Doctor Strange’s powers are sometimes less effective against strictly science-based opponents, although he can overcome this limitation with effort.

Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” will cast its spell on fans when it hits theaters on November 4th, 2016.  Stay tuned, we can’t WAIT for the first trailer.  Follow the film via their official TWITTER page.

    I normally wouldn’t be interested in watching a superhero/comic book-themed film, but Cumberbatch looks absolutely incredible, and I know he’ll do an amazing job. Can’t wait to see how this one plays out!
