The hype is real and is being felt by many as fans received a picture of Benedict Cumberbatch in costume for Doctor Strange. Marvels phase 3 movie can't come any sooner and if you missed it, here's the image of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange.

Now he hasn't been in the costume many times, according to Entertainment Weekly, and this is what he had to say about it:

“I’m still in the infancy of learning all that, It was like, okay, I’ve got to keep throwing these poses, these spells, these rune-casting things, everything he does physically. I’m thinking, there’s going to be a huge amount of speculation and intrigue over the positioning of that finger as opposed to it being there, or there. And I’m still working on that. We haven’t played any of those scenes yet. I felt really self-conscious. But, then, by the end, it was great. It’s like anything, you just have to experiment.”

New Images

Well, he will be playing the Sorcerer Supreme after all. Now, while fans were trying to handle how amazing he looked in the costume and Marvel aced it, more images were released. Yes, more! Take a look at them for yourself.

This might be a bit to much for all of us to handle and I can see behind that screen trying to figure what you will be doing until November. Well, my answer just to stay updated with more Doctor strange news and looks like you can because there's another glorious piece of information realeaved.

Who will be playing the villain?

No name of the villain has been revealed, but the actor who will be playing has. You may be familiar with the name Mads Mikkelsen. Don't have a clue on who he is? Well, you may know him for the recent cancelled show Hanibal which unfortunately only lasted three seasons.

We were told that Mads Mikkelsen will be in Doctor Strange but we weren't told for what exact role. Still not told what character he's going to play, we know that he will be the villain of the movie.

This is what the president of Marvel Studios had to tell Entertainment Weekly alongside with the man who's bringing this alive, Doctor Strange, producer Kevin Feige:

“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 Mikkelsen is scary and this is what to expect from him in the Doctor Strange movie according to Fegie:

“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.”

So just how excited are you for Doctor Strange? Do you think Benedict Cumberbatch will do Doctor Strange justice? I certainly do. Let me know in the comment section below your thoughts!
