Doctor Strange, the latest installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, opens in just over one month, and these character posters are intended to get folks familiar with the main characters — and the topsy-turvy mystical world they inhabit.
Magic has not yet been seen in a Marvel movie, but Doctor Strange will introduce the concept in a big way. Ant-Man showed vans that other realities, such as the microverse, are possible, so viewers shouldn’t be too shocked that magic can exist in the largely science-fiction-based MCU.
The reality-bending images include Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, Rachel McAdams as Christine “Night Nurse” Palmer, Benedict Wong as Wong, Mads Mikkelsen as Kaecilius and Tilda Swinton as the Ancient One.
Directed by Scott Derrickson (Sinister), Doctor Strange also stars Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt and Scott Adkins. Jon Spaihts (Prometheus), Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill wrote the screenplay.
Doctor Strange will appear in theaters Nov. 4.
