Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange’ Begins Production, Cast Confirmed


Production on Marvel’s Doctor Strange has officially begun.

The film, according to Marvel, will follow Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers a hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.

Cumberbatch was confirmed for the film’s title role in December with the one of the producers, Kevin Feihe saying, “Stephen Strange’s story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity. In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique and compelling character.” Now Marvel has released an update, confirming the movie’s full cast.

In addition to Cumberbatch, Marvel also revealed the film stars: Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years a Slave, The Martian) as Baron Mordo, Rachel McAdams (Southpaw, Sherlock Holmes) and Michael Stuhlbarg (Steve Jobs, A Serious Man) with Mads Mikkelsen (Clash of the Titans, Casino Royale) and Academy Award® winner Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton, The Grand Budapest Hotel) as The Ancient One.

Jon Spaihts is wrote screenplay and Scott Derrickson is directing.

The movie will be the latest in Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Phase 3’s goal, according to Marvel, is to “introduce audiences to new heroes and continue the adventures of fan favorites,” which will take place over the course of four years and nine films.
