A new (Cumber)batch of photos from the London set of Marvel’s Doctor Strange have reached the internet.
The new shots show the Sorcerer Supreme (Benedict Cumberbatch) and Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) in full costume on the streets of New York (London is standing in for NYC in this film) preparing to take on… someone. We don’t get to see who or what they’re charging toward, but there’s no denying that these pics are awesome.
Thanks to Twitter users @Cumberbuddy and @IniciativaV for sharing them.
Doctor Strange introduces more of the magical element into the Marvel Cinematic Universe — something that had been left out until the introduction of Scarlet Witch in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Screen Rant has more to say about that.
…as silly as these actors may appear now, sporting colorful wizard robes while dramatically pointing and posing their hands, once the visual effects work is added these scenes will surely come across as epic as intended. Fans already got a bit of taste of how magic is conjured in the MCU with Scarlet Witch in Age of Ultron, but Doctor Strange will depict characters displaying a multitude of magical powers. MCU guru Kevin Feige has already revealed that Strange himself will have variety of abilities, from casting spells to opening portals. He can also fly thanks to his Cloak of Levitation, which is possibly what we see being filmed in those photos that snapped Cumberbatch in mid-leap.
Doctor Strange is set to hit theaters on November 4, 2016.SuperFable
