Entertainment Weekly have been really pulling out all the stops for their “First Look” issue. Not only did Benedict Cumberbatch grace the cover in the first official image of Doctor Strange, aka the Sorceror Supreme, but they also revealed a handful of extra images on their website – check them ALL out below.
Doctor Strange comes from director Scott Derrickson and also stars Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One. Producer Kevin Feige had this to say about 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] was someone that we were very interested in for a very long time, but he kept getting more popular, and more popular, and he kept getting busier, and busier, and it looked like the timing wasn’t going to work. So we looked at some other actors for a while and ultimately decided, ‘We have to try and make it work with Benedict and with his schedule.’
