First Look At Benedict Cumberbatch’s Doctor Strange In New Concept Art


Doctor Strange is Marvel’s second 2016 movie and arguably just as big a risk as Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man were. However, with a stellar cast led by Sherlock‘s Benedict Cumberbatch, Doctor Strange stands a great chance of being just as big a hit as those aforementioned Phase 2 releases were.

This new featurette for the movie, which is included on the Marvel Phase 2 box set, takes a closer look at the film and features interviews with Kevin Feige and director Scott Derrickson.

Unfortunately, there’s no behind the scenes footage here as this video was likely put together a while before the movie started production in Nepal. However, there is a piece of concept art which gives us our first look at Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, something fans have expected to see online since this year’s Comic-Con back in July.

From what we see here, the actor looks fantastic in the role, and while there’s nothing to say that this is going to be the Sorcerer Supreme’s final appearance in Doctor Strange, chances are it will be something along these lines. And, if that’s the case, this is a very faithful interpretation of the comic book character’s classic costume.

Chances are that the first Doctor Strange trailer won’t be released until well into 2016, so this tease is very welcome indeed, don’t you think?
