Three new character posters and an IMAX poster have now arrived to join yesterday’s lot. View them below:
Original story from 27th September:
Featuring the spinning New York City background featured heavily in the trailers, the first poster shows Benedict Cumberbatch in full Sorcerer Supreme garb as Doctor Stephen Strange. The second features Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer, a New Yorker nurse and Strange’s love interest. The third stars the perfectly-named Benedict Wong who plays, er, Wong. The character is usually Strange’s faithful manservant in the comics but looks to be more of a mentor in the ways of the mystic arts in the movie. Presumably more character posters – featuring the likes of Tilda Swinton’s Ancient One, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo and Mads Mikkelsen’s Kaecilius – will be released soon.
Ten more images, a mix of behind the scenes snaps and some stills from the movie, have also been pulled from the hat. Thepictures show the cast and director Scott Derrickson on location in Nepal, on a New York hospital set and in Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum itself.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Marvel’s Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City’s Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.
Doctor Strange will arrive in the UK on October 25th and then in November 4th in the US.
