In the last week of 2015, we heard a whole bunch about Doctor Strange. But if you wanted high-resolution versions of the art without watermarks, you were out of luck. Thankfully, though, Disney has provided some pretty, pretty pictures for us to drool over.
First, here’s Benedict Cumberbatch in profile, with the lightning-throwing version above.
Next, there’s a look at the Sanctum Sanctorum. Honestly, for our tastes, it’s a little too clean and precise, too much like Tony’s garage, but with a kooky window. Come on, Doctor Strange is a kook, he needs books everywhere and possibly a stuffed demon or something.
The depiction of his origin is spot-on, though. Strange’s ego is tied up in his hands, so this is arguably the character’s motivation in one picture. Once his hands are destroyed, Stephen Strange doesn’t think he has that much to live for.
Finally, we’ve got the Dark Dimension. Depicting Steve Ditko’s bizarre, abstract designs on film was always going to be a challenge, and this idea of Strange drifting through space with an oil slick is definitely an interesting take on the idea.
The concept art is, of course, just that. A lot can change between now and Doctor Strange‘s November 4 release date. Still, this shows where they’re heading and how they’re tackling a challenging comic. Expect a trailer in front of Captain America: Civil War.
