Doctor Strange will introduce Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, the Sorcerer Supreme of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and indulge in the arcane side of the shared superhero universe.
The Captain America: Civil War Blu-ray release will include a bonus feature titled “Open Your Mind: Marvel’s Doctor Strange,” which is an exclusive sneak peek at Doctor Strange. The featurette includes several new pieces of Doctor Strange concept art that can be seen in the gallery below.
Some of the Doctor Strange concept art is a little hard to grasp. One piece is clearly Doctor Strange’s home, the Sanctum Santorum. Others a bit more “mind-opening” in nature, including one that of what looks like Doctor Strange standing next to another version of himself. This seems an illustration of the Marvel multiverse, which will be referenced for the first time in Doctor Strange.
Doctor Strange is the Marvel Studios film with the potential to open up the Marvel Cinematic Universe more than any other by introducing the multiverse. This Doctor Strange concept art feels like just the first taste.
Doctor Strange is directed by Scott Derrickson and stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt, Scott Adkins, Mads Mikkelsen, and Tilda Swinton.
Doctor Strange opens in theaters on Nov. 4. Captain America: Civil War release on Blu-ray on Sept. 13.
