Cumberbatch plays Stephen Vincent Strange, a former neurosurgeon who becomes the next Sorcerer Supreme and primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats. Tilda Swinton will play Strange’s mentor, the Ancient One, while Chiwetel Ejiofor will appear as Baron Mordo, who also studies magic under the Ancient One, before becoming Doctor Strange’s nemesis. Mads Mikelsen is also onboard to play one of the main villains, while Rachel McAdams is Christine Palmer.
It’ll be interesting to see whether Marvel continues its incredibly successful run. The trailer certainly suggested it could be an interesting film, with the makers also saying this is one that needs to be seen in 3D.
