Marvel has officially debuted high-res versions of the previously-released images for the upcoming Doctor Strange and and also released a lovely new look at the titular character’s Sanctum Santorum. Batcave, eat your heart out!

Directed by Scott Derrickson tells the story of Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch), an acclaimed neurosurgeon who uncovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions after a near-fatal car accident, showing audiences corners of the Marvel Cinematic that have never been explored, opening yet another door.

“The Cloak of Levitation [and] the Eye of Agamotto are his two signature pieces,” Kevin Feige previously said. “In this film, the Eye is a very important relic that can be quite dangerous if used in the wrong hands, because it has the ability to do any number of things, the most dangerous of which is, it can sort of manipulate probabilities. Which is also another way of saying, ‘screw around with time’ — which is part of our story.”

Doctor Strange stars Benedict 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), Scott Adkins (The Bourne Ultimatum), Amy Landecker (“Transparent”), and Mads Mikkelsen (“Hannibal”) as the film’s villain.

Cheers to the lads at Sqaureeyed for the heads up
