While in the span of 3 months we are getting three superheroes movies in the form of 'Deadpool', 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' and 'Captain America: Civil War', it doesn't stop there, the comic book-film slate goes on until November of 2016 with the release of the much-awaited, much-anticipated 'Doctor Strange', starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen.
In the past few days we've been getting really close looks ad Cumberbatch and Ejiofor's characters in action with the release of leaked set pictures.
Mikkelsen's character, however, has remained a tightly-kept mystery until today. Several new pictures reveal Mads' appearance as well as a female follower whose identity hasn't been revealed. Check them out:
One of the prevailing theories for his character was him being Dormammu, a creature described as "worse than a demon" that leaves in a completely separate realm from the rest of the Marvel Universe.
Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige had this to say of Mads' character:
"It would be fun to conceal that, if we can”
However, his appearance doesn't even resemble the mystical being. Although, could his burned eyes along with other foes with the same appearance point to them being controlled by Dormammu?
Anyway, early rumored story details mentioned the inclusion of Kaecilius, who in the comic books, is a villain and Baron Mordo's apprentice.
HIs attire's resemblance to Doctor Strange and Mordo could be make the rumor more likely.
WHO DO YOU THINK MADS MIKKELSEN IS PLAYING?
