With Doctor Strange set to hit theaters in a few months, it seems a bit late in the game to add new cast members, but a new poster for Marvel’s mystical superhero film reveals that that’s most certainly the case. The poster debuted at Comic-Con last weekend, with several people immediately pointing out the curious addition of Benjamin Bratt’s name in the casting credits. But who might he be playing?

Headed to Comic-Con International this month? Be sure to keep your eyes open: Entertainment Weekly reports that copies this new Doctor Strange poster will be distributed at the convention, which runs from July 21–24. This may not be the announcement of a Doctor Strange panel that a lot of fans are still hoping for, but as far as consolation prizes go, it’s pretty darn acceptable.

The identity of Mads Mikkelsen’s villain in Doctor Strange has been a big secret for months, but recent photos from a toy set (of all things) seemingly confirmed the name of Marvel’s new big bad. Things just became official, as a preview for the company’s Doctor Strange prequel comic reveals that Mikkelsen is playing Kaecilius — wait, who the heck is Kaecilius?! No, really. Who is this guy?

The identity of Mads Mikkelsen’s mysterious villain in Doctor Strange has been the subject of much speculation, with fans assuming the former Hannibal star is either playing classic comic baddies like Dormammu or Nightmare. Those would be good guesses, but they’re both incorrect — it turns out Mikkelsen is playing an antagonist most people have never even heard of before, but one that might make for a much more interesting story.

It may be hard to believe, but Comic-Con is very, very close — next month, in fact. And that means that we’ll be hearing a lot more about this year’s panels and special presentations in the weeks to come. After sitting out last year’s con, Marvel is returning to San Diego in July and it looks like they’re bringing at least a couple of their upcoming superhero releases to Hall H.

A few days ago, Tilda Swinton herself addressed the controversy surrounding her role in Doctor Strange, which some have accused of white-washing a traditionally Asian character. And now Marvel has chimed in with an official statement on the matter, offering new character details that they hope will shed some light on the decision.

Doctor Strange is just one of a few projects that’s inspired a bit of controversy in recent weeks. Along with the first photo of Scarlett Johansson in the live-action adaptation of Ghost in the Shell (and subsequent rumors of some questionable VFX tests) and the predominantly white cast of Marvel’s Iron Fist series, Doctor Strange has similarly drawn ire for its casting of Tilda Swinton in the role of the Ancient One, a character that was originally Asian in the comic books. While those other controversies have yet to really be addressed, Queen Tilda herself is speaking on behalf of Doctor Strange. And when Queen Tilda speaks, we must listen — even if she doesn’t really have any answers to give.
