As part of Entertainment Weekly's upcoming "First Look" issue, they're releasing bits and pieces from their Doctor Strange preview early. After revealing the cover, with Cumberbatch in full Strange mode, they've released a handful of more photos and concept art from the film, as well.
The photos show a full spell-casting Doctor (as seen above), which Cumberbatch said he was amazed by.
"These gestures are ways of creating the magic," the actor said of Strange's signature hand and arm gestures. "It's a beautiful thing, it's balletic, it's very dynamic."
While those gestures will be aided, of course, by computer-generated special effects, the concept art and other images included show effects both CGI and practical, including a large set with plenty of mystical artifacts they dub the "Chamber of Relics" but is almost certainly inside the Sanctum Sanctorum, Dr. Strange's mystical fortress. The look and feel of the film will follow "a lot of the psychedelic '60s as we know it," Marvel Studios president and producer Kevin Feige promised, as he considers this comic a product of its time more than any other from that era.
