For a certain contingency of fans, the casting of Scott Adkins in Doctor Strange was just as exciting as Mads Mikkelsen or Tilda Swinton was for everyone else. The action star and martial arts pro’s role in the film remains a mystery, and while neither Adkins nor Marvel have confirmed exactly who (or what) he’s playing in Doctor Strange, the actor has opened up just a little bit about his experience and what we can expect from the Sorcerer Supreme’s solo outing.

Doctor Strange wrapped production this past weekend with an outdoors shoot in New York City. Along with that came a flurry of paparazzi photos of stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen in action. But, if you’re hungering for...
Just yesterday we got a new look at Benedict Cumberbatch and Chiwetel Ejiofor on the set of Doctor Strange, as the actors (along with some colorfully-costumed co-stars) filmed a scene in New York — in broad daylight! Where anyone could see! Today brings more photos from the set of Marvel’s mystical superhero film, this time giving us a sneak peek at Mads Mikkelsen’s secretive villain and his seriously rad makeup.
We’ve already gotten an official look at Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme, but some new photos from the set of Doctor Strange give us another look at the actor and his co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor (along with a few mysterious cohorts). The stars of Marvel’s mystical superhero film spring into action — quite literally — in the latest images from the set, taking the action from London to the streets of New York.
“Sorcerer Supreme’s sidekick” — say that one five times fast. Anyhow, that’s the latest role that’s been cast in Doctor Strange, and although many of the major roles have been filled, Marvel isn’t quite done casting up the for the upcoming film. The Martian star Benedict Wong is the most recent addition to the cast, playing the part of Benedict Cumberbatch’s sidekick.
Say what you will about Marvel’s TV branch maintaining little connection to the films, Agent Carter has managed to feel perfectly at home with both Captain America and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. alike. Now, we can add Doctor Strange to that list with a surprising connection, while a new clip introduces Peggy’s new love interest for Season 2.
We’re 10 months away from the release of Doctor Strange, and probably just a few months out from the first official trailer, which will likely debut with Captain America: Civil War in May. While you patiently wait to see Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme in action, Marvel has released some new concept art along with high-def versions of those official photos that previously appeared in Entertainment Weekly.
It’s officially 2016. Our Best of 2015 lists have all been published and the new year is upon us, which means it’s time to start looking to the future. Yes, 2015 was a particularly good year for movie fans, but 2016 looks pretty impressive too. You like Coen Bros. movies? We got one of those. You like Star Wars? Yup, one of those too. Critically acclaimed horror movies? Sure. Pixar? Of course. Movies where your favorite superheroes beat the crap out of each other? WE GOT TWO OF THOSE. We put together a quick list of the 25 movies — a mix of both blockbusters and indies — that we can’t wait to see next year. This will probably change as the year goes on (our 2015 list included Jupiter Ascending, Aloha and Tomorrowland so we’re not perfect), but based on what we know right now, this is it. Here are the movies we’re looking forward to the most in 2016, in the order of release date (those with no release date are listed in alphabetical order).
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.
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.
