Man, what a strange looking poster.
Before you get all crazy about that headline, you should probably know that this doesn’t necessarily mean that Tom Holland will be making cameo as Spider-Man in Doctor Strange — that said, the actor did drop by the set of Marvel’s mystical superhero film, where he hung out with director Scott Derrickson and Marvel co-president Louis D’Esposito. And while a Spidey cameo in Doctor Strange isn’t guaranteed…um, stranger things have happened.
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.
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.
Production has officially begun on Marvel’s Doctor Strange, with director Scott Derrickson at the helm and Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme in what promises to be a truly unique and, well, strange offering from the MCU. Marvel has formally announced the start of production and confirmed the central cast, including former Hannibal star Mads Mikkelsen, who had previously been in talks for a role.
Doctor Strange boasts an excellent cast and promises to take the MCU in a very weird, very mystical direction — but will there be, you know, any action? For those who were concerned that Marvel’s latest might not be as action-heavy as its predecessors, fear not, as director Scott Derrickson has tapped martial arts pro and action star Scott Adkins, ensuring that Doctor Strange will come with a little kick.
It looks like Dr. Strange is going to have an old friend over for dinner. (Creepy slurping noise.)
Several months after we first learned he was being eyed for a role in Marvel’s Doctor Strange, we finally know who Oscar nominee Chiwetel Ejiofor will play in the upcoming superhero adventure. And yes, everyone guessed right: the 12 Years a Slave star will take on the role of Baron Mordo, Stephen Strange’s arch-nemesis and fellow student of the mystic arts.
With the Marvel Cinematic Universe about to enter “Phase Three,” expect things to get a little weird. The arrival of a Doctor Strange movie signifies just how weird, since the mere thought of a dimension-hopping sorcerer inhabiting the same world as Steve Rogers and Tony Stark seemed impossible just a few years ago. In fact, the debut adventure of Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme may very well be the film that smuggles one of the wildest comic book concepts of all time into the MCU. Is Stephen Strange ready to grapple with Death itself?
Sinister was one of the most successful horror films of 2012, which made the notion of a sequel inevitable. While director Scott Derrickson is busy preparing for Marvel’s Doctor Strange, he’s also producing Sinister 2, with Citadel director Ciaran Foy at the helm. The first images from the upcoming sequel have arrived, and they’ve brought back our old pal Bughuul. Oh, that wacky Bughuul, always terrorizing families wherever he goes.
