Right, here’s the deal, Aggressive Comics are claiming the image above popped up on the official Marvel Twitter and then was quickly removed and that it’s the first look at Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr  Strange.

We don’t think it’s real.


If it is real then we would hate to not have shown it to you and our initial thought – that it was lazy photoshop – isn’t reason enough to believe it’s not the real deal because, frankly, some of Marvel’s official posters have been dire.

We’ll let you make up your own minds (you’re welcome) but we have serious doubts…


Turns out it’s by SG Posters – you can check them out here or on Twitter

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
