Marvel Concept art reveals how Benedict Cumberbatch will look as Doctor Strange

December 7th, 2015 by Marc Comments


We have seen the images of Benedict Cumberbatch filming Doctor Strange, though have had no indication what he would look like in the full kit… until now.

A piece of concept art has appeared online showing Strange in his full hero-get-up and it looks awesome.

USA Today have released a new behind the scenes of the movie (below) which is pretty pedestrian until we get to the image above. Which looks, frankly, great.

We can’t wait to see how the Sorcerer Supreme looks in the flesh. What about you?

Doctor Strange  stars Cumberbatch in the lead with Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave) as Baron Mordo, Tilda Swinton (Only Lovers Left Alive) as The Ancient One and, in undisclosed roles, Rachel McAdams (The Vow), Michael Stuhlbarg (Pawn Sacrifice) and Scott Adkins (The Bourne Ultimatum).

Scheduled to hit theaters November 4, 2016, Doctor Strange is scripted by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Passengers) and directed by Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Deliver Us From Evil). It is said to follow the story of neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.

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….
