Following cover reveal & images from Marvel Studios’ Doctor Strange. New cast info and more details from EW has been revealed.
Before getting down to cast details producer Kevin Feige talks about concept of the film:
“When this comic appeared in the early ’60s, it really informed, in a way that is pretty amazing, a lot of the psychedelic ’60s as we know it.
I don’t know that they were doing anything weird in the bullpen in Marvel, but certainly the stuff they were doing inspired all those people who were doing mind-expansion experiments at the time.
So, that’s inherent to the property. And that’s our mission statement for the visual effects on this movie.”
Benedict Cumberbatch plays Stephen Strange / Doctor Strange, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Karl Mordo, Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One, Michael Stuhlbarg as Nicodemus West. The cast also includes Mads Mikkelsen & Rachel McAdams, but what role they will be playing in the movie is yet to be revealed, but we get some info.
“Mads is playing our main villain,” said executive producer, Stephen Broussard.
Feige gives us more more on Mads Mikkelsen’s character: “We will take audiences through sort of a guide to the multiverse, other dimensions, and there are amazing things out there — wonders that are going to be hopefully visually extremely interesting and unique to this movie.
But there are also very scary things in these other dimensions. Mads’ character is a sorcerer who breaks off into his own sect.
[He] believes that the Ancient One is just protecting her own power base and that the world may be better off if we were to allow some of these other things through.”
And then Feige talks about Rachel McAdams, She plays a “fellow surgeon that has a history with Strange and is his sort of lynchpin to his old life, once he steps into he role of a sorcerer.
She is someone he connects with at the beginning, and reconnects with, and helps anchor his humanity.”
Broussard adds, “Rachel McAdams is sort of [Doctor Strange’s] contemporary in the modern-day New York world, before and after he goes on this crazy journey.
So, she sees him before, she sees him after. She’s kind of this audience point of view.”
Doctor Strange is scheduled to hit theaters on November 4, 2016.
