While Mads Mikkelsen was cast in Doctor Strange months ago, his character has remained under wraps. It seems that's going to change as merchandise for the film prepares to make its way onto store shelves.
Heroic Hollywood got a sneak peek at one of the toy sets being released alongside the film. The toy's description reveals that Mikkelsen is playing Kaecilius. Here's the description:
Marvel Minimates Series 70 Doctor Strange Movie 2-Pack Asst.
A Diamond Select Toys Release! The next chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now the next entry in the long-running Marvel Minimates line! Series 70 of Marvel Minimates mini-figures travels to the world of the Doctor Strange movie, with four different two-packs: Dr. Strange with The Ancient One, Mordo with Kaecilius, the specialty-exclusive Stephen Strange with Christine Palmer and the specialty-exclusive Wong & Zealot! Each 2-inch Minimates mini-figure features 14 points of articulation and fully interchangeable parts. Each two-pack is packaged in a full-color window box.
In the Marvel Comics Universe, Kaecilius is an agent of Baron Mordo. The cinematic Baron Mordo isn't yet an enemy of Strange, at least not overtly, so it's unclear if there what the connection between the two will be.
The toy description also confirms that Rachel McAdams will be playing Night Nurse, as most fans assumed. Night Nurse is a character who has tended to the wounds of many superheroes in the Marvel Universe and has been a love interest for Doctor Strange.
Marvel's Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a tragic car accident, must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City's Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel cinematic universe.
