Following this week’s reveal of the first official images of Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme and Kevin Feige’s hints about the next Infinity Stone comes new intel on the other characters in Doctor Strange — namely, Tilda Swinton’s take on the Ancient One and Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Baron Mordo, who may or may not be a villain? It’s a bit more complicated than that.

At long last, Sherlock will once again return to all our TV screens in just a few days time, albeit looking a bit different than we’re used to. Now, cast and crew take us inside The Abominable Bride with a new featurette detailing how Benedict Cumberbatch’s modern Sherlock transported itself back to Victorian times.
So far, the MCU has introduced four of the six Infinity Stones, the immeasurably powerful gems that Thanos has been trying — and failing — to collect. There are still two more stones to be revealed before we get to Avengers: Infinity War, and according to a new interview with Marvel’s Kevin Feige, it looks like Doctor Strange may very well be introducing another one — the time gem.
Benedict Cumberbatch really doesn’t want to upset Doctor Strange fans.
Sure, Sherlock has his upcoming Victorian special and a fourth season beyond that, while Idris Elba’s Luther will make a grand mini-series return, and Gillian Anderson’s The Fall also readies another run, but forget all that. The real money’s in crossover! If you don’t believe us, check out the BBC’s new composite promo placing all its detective heroes together for one epic team-up, and tell us you haven’t already mailed a check.
There are a few things in particular Doctor Strange fans are hoping to see when Marvel’s mystical superhero film arrives next fall, including characters like the Ancient One and Night Nurse, as well as familiar elements from the comics — like the Sanctum Sanctorum, a townhouse built on sacred ground and charged with supernatural energy, the place that Stephen Strange calls home. And the latest set photo may very well be taken from inside that house.
The closer we draw to December’s end, the closer we are to new Sherlock in the form of one-off Victorian special “The Abominable Bride.” We’ve seen a few photos to date, but now the lady in question makes herself known in a new Sherlock trailer for the 2016 premiere, veil, shotgun and all.
For his next trick, Benedict Cumberbatch will go from Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme to Warlock of War (all rights reserved) for the quite literally-named The War Magician, scripted by former Star Wars: Rogue One screenwriter Gary Whitta. The actor is turning his powerful eye from battling mystical comic book baddies to defeating Nazis with…magic tricks — though to be fair, the plot of The War Magician does sound like it could be a new Marvel movie based on an obscure property.
Marvel's Phase 2 box set arrives tomorrow, and in addition to all the great extras and supplementary materials for the films in the second phase of the MCU, fans will find at least one very special bonus feature for one of the studio's most anticipated Phase 3 projects. You don't have to wait until tomorrow (or even buy the box set) to watch this interesting featurette on Doctor Strange right now, which also offers a look at Benedict Cumberbatch via a new piece of concept art.
The BBC’s Sherlock has plenty of Doctor Who in its blood between creators Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss, but did you know Matt Smith even auditioned for the role of Watson? Or that Amanda Abbington (Mary) is Martin Freeman’s real-life partner? Flip your collar and swish that coat, as the 34th episode of ‘You Think You Know TV?’ hits the streets of London to detect some elementary facts from Sherlock.
