Doctor Strange Filming Wraps as Mads Mikkelsen’s Villain is Revealed
We’ve been posting photos from the Doctor Strange filming in New York City this weekend, but now it has come to an end. Not just for the New York shoot, but the entire production as director Scott Derrickson posted on Twitter that filming has wrapped. Before that happened, Mads Mikkelsen’s villain was revealed on the streets of New York and you can view photos of his character in the gallery below, along with more pics of Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme and Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Baron Mordo. Who do you think Mads Mikkelsen is playing?
Doctor Strange also stars Tilda Swinton (Only Lovers Left Alive) as The Ancient One and Benedict Wong as Doctor Strange’s humble servant, Wong, and, in undisclosed roles, Rachel McAdams (The Vow), Michael Stuhlbarg (Pawn Sacrifice), Scott Adkins (The Bourne Ultimatum), Amy Landecker (“Transparent”), and Mads Mikkelsen (“Hannibal”).
The film is scripted by Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, Passengers) and directed by Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Deliver Us From Evil). Doctor Strange tells the story of Stephen Strange (Cumberbatch), an acclaimed neurosurgeon who uncovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions after a near-fatal car accident, showing audiences corners of the Marvel Cinematic Universe never before explored.
Scheduled to hit theaters November 4, 2016, Doctor Strange will continue “Phase Three” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which launches this May with Joe and Anthony Russo’s Captain America: Civil War.
