Marvel unveiled a new Doctor Strange poster today, that shows how "self-centered" the good Doctor really is. The poster shows how the Sorcerer Supreme can literally turn the world upside down, and make the entire world center around him, with world landmarks such as New York's Freedom Tower and the London Bridge seen in the background. We'll have to wait and see if these world-bending powers will be put on display in the movie itself when it hits theaters this November.
Marvel's Doctor Strange follows the story of the talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) 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 »
Two years ago, Marvel Studios introduced fans to the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Guardians of the Galaxy, which went on to be one of the biggest movies of 2014, despite being based on a rather obscure comic book. This year, the Marvel Phase 3 lineup continues with an introduction to the mystical and magical corner of the McU with Doctor Strange, hitting theaters nationwide November 4. Today we have a new preview that goes behind-the-scenes of Doctor Strange, and offers more details on how Chiwetel Ejiofor's Baron Mordo fits into the story.
This new preview, which debuted on Marvel's YouTube, features plenty of behind-the-scenes footage along with interviews with executive producer Stephen Broussard and Chiwetel Ejiofor, who reveals that his character Baron Mordo is "instrumental" in Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) being introduced to this universe, since he is "close" to The Ancient One, played by Tilda Swinton. We also hear from Tilda Swinton, »
Every week, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) hands out new ratings for their upcoming movies. While most of the time, MPAA ratings aren't necessarily big news, they can be when it comes to superhero movies like Doctor Strange. Over the weekend, director Scott Derrickson unveiled the movie's rating, supposedly before the MPAA made it official.
On Friday night, director Scott Derrickson posted an unusual message on Twitter, revealing that Doctor Strange was rated PG-13 for "kaleidoscopic galactic intensity and other dimensional psychotropic violence." The MPAA normally includes a brief explanation for each rating, but it doesn't seem likely that this would represent their stance on the movie, especially since they haven't confirmed the rating yet. Still, the news that this McU movie is PG-13 shouldn't be too surprising, especially since every McU movie has been PG-13.
The director's tweet was also posted in quite the unusual manner, entirely upside down, »
Get your Eye of Agamoto ready and put on your Cloak of Levitation, because Marvel has dropped a brand new TV trailer for Doctor Strange! Disney seems to be capitalizing on the fact that they eyes of the world are all focused on the Olympics in Rio right now. That being the case, they studio has taken the opportunity to release a 1-minute long TV spot for Doctor Strange, which is hitting theaters in a few short months.
The TV spot first aired during the Olympics broadcast on Tuesday morning, and has since made its way onto Twitter and YouTube. Unfortunately, there isn't any new footage to speak of in the new Doctor Strange spot, but it is a really action packed minute and gives a great sense of what the movie is going to be. This comes only a few days after Cinemark released a 30-second TV spot for Doctor Strange, »

After that cool Sdcc teaser, Marvel's Luke Cage Netflix series finally unveiled a full length trailer to give everyone a better idea of what's in store when it arrives in September.
Here it is in case you haven't seen it yet:
Video of Luke Cage - Main Trailer - Only on Netflix September 30 [HD]
Please note, that I'm not going in order or frame by frame to describe stuff that you're seeing. This is mostly in any order that makes sense to me.
Also, the song that plays over roughly the first half of this trailer is "Walk on By" from Isaac Hayes' Hot Buttered Soul album. There is honestly not a better album you could spend the rest of your day listening to. »
It hasn't been that long since Marvel and Disney bestowed us with new footage from Doctor Strange, showing off the full-length trailer at Comic-Con. Today, we get the first TV spot, which teases a new reality for the Marvel Universe. This is basically a truncated version of the latest trailer, but its edited in a quick and flashy way that should captivate audiences who fell in love with Christopher Nolan's Inception, as some of the visuals recall that sci-fi classic.
In this breezy thirty second preview, we get to see Doctor Stephen Strange in his early days as a cocky young surgeon who thinks he knows everything. This is before an accident renders his hands useless. We hear the Ancient One schooling Strange on how the world works, which Stephen truly knows nothing about. He is soon shown that the reality he knows is just one of many. At first, »
In September, Marvel’s Luke Cage gets his own show on Netflix. Since the small-screen heroes of the McU have a tendency to overlap, there’s a good chance Iron Fist will make a guest appearance before his own show airs sometime in 2017. Then, once all the players are on the stage, The Defenders will bring it all together with a street-level version of The Avengers in late 2017. Right now, all we know for sure is Daredevil (Charlie Cox), Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter), Luke Cage (Mike Colter), and Iron Fist (Finn Jones) will make up the team. One can assume other non-hero players, like Rosario Dawson’s Night Nurse, will also be along for the ride. But Marvel and Netflix haven’t confirmed any casting yet. A lack of official announcements can’t keep actors from talking, though. As reported by /Film, Elden Henson allegedly let it slip that he »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is continuing to expand after nearly a decade of existence, and it is about to get a whole lot more mystic and magical. Doctor Strange is the next movie on the slate for Marvel Studios, and they just dropped a brand new, epic trailer for it. Stephen Strange may be a new character to most of the general public, but this trailer will surely help sell everyone on Marvel's latest hero, and the magic side of the Marvel Universe that he is bringing to the table with him.
The studio decided to debut the new Doctor Strange trailer for fans who attended the Marvel Studios panel in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, and it may wind up being one of the most talked about things from the entire convention.

Last year, Marvel Studios famously pulled out of Comic-Con, which lead to Warner Bros. and 20th Century Fox dominating the con with their superhero adventures. This year, 20th Century Fox pulled out, as both Marvel and Warner Bros. vye for Sdcc supremacy this year, with both studios holding their Hall H panels today. Warner Bros.' panel starts at 11:30 Am and Marvel's panel starts at 5:30. Anyone who has tried to get into Hall H in the past knows that you almost have to spend the night outside, waiting in line, and for fans waiting outside last night, they got a big surprise from Doctor Strange star Benedict Cumberbatch.
Last night, a number of photos and videos surfaced on Twitter revealing Benedict Cumberbatch interacting with several fans waiting in line for the Hall H festivities. The actor is certainly no stranger to comic book fans, with a number of »
Superhero fans were in for quite the surprise tonight during the first ever Marvel and Netflix Comic-Con panel, which, according to the schedule, was only set to feature the stars of Marvel's Luke Cage. Mike Colter, Alfre Woodard, Mahershala Ali, Theo Rossi, Simone Missick, Frank Whaley and showrunner and Executive Producer Cheo Hodari Coker were all scheduled to appear, but the Ballroom 20 guests were treated to a surprise appearance by Jon Bernthal (The Punisher), a special video message from Finn Jones along with the first trailer for Iron Fist and the surprise renewal of Daredevil Season 3. Fans were also shown the new trailer for Luke Cage, along with a sizzle reel that included scenes from Daredevil, Jessica Jones and even more new footage from Luke Cage
Long before the Comic-Con schedule was announced last week, Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson teased that his comic book adaptation would be heading to San Diego. While Marvel hasn't confirmed what movies will be showcased during their Hall H panel on Saturday, July 23, Doctor Strange will surely be in the mix, and today we have word that fans attending the convention will get to take home a new poster featuring the Sorcerer Supreme in action. If you're going to Sdcc next week, be sure to stop by the Marvel booth to pick up this poster.
Entertainment Weekly has our first look at this poster, which features production concept art from artist Ryan Meinerding. The site also caught up with the actor while visiting the set earlier this year, where he was asked to compare this iconic Marvel Comics hero to another beloved character he plays, Sherlock on the hit BBC TV series. »
Last month, it was rumored that Mads Mikkelsen's mysterious character in Doctor Strange is the Marvel Comics villain Kaecilius. This took many fans by surprise because, while in the comic books he is a disciple of Baron Mordo, (Chiwetel Ejiofor), Mordo is reportedly working alongside Benedict Cumberbatch in this movie adaptation. Still, there isn't much we know about this character yet, but now a new prequel comic has surfaced that sheds new light on Kaecilius, officially confirming him as the villain.
Towards the end of production, we got our first glimpse at Mads Mikkelsen in costume as Kaecilius, wearing unique face makeup around his eyes, accompanied by an unidentified female character. Comixology debuted the cover art for this prequel comic, dubbed Marvel's Doctor Strange Prelude, while more images surfaced on Twitter that reveal what many have speculated, that Kaecilius was a former Master of the Mystic Arts, working with »
Despite the release of a very cool teaser trailer, there’s still an awful lot we don’t know about Doctor Strange. The biggest mystery is who the villain will be, especially as the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s version of Baron Mordo appears to be an ally to The Ancient One and the Sorcerer Supreme.
We do, of course, know that Mads Mikkelsen is playing a bad guy, but his identity has remained a mystery…well, until now that is. A description for a wave of Diamond Select Doctor Strange minimates offers up character names for not only Rachel McAdams’ character, but also those being played by Mikkelsen and Zara Phythian.

Now that Captain America: Civil War has kicked off Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, fans are looking forward to a new character being introduced on the big screen. Doctor Strange will be the second movie of Phase 3 when it hits theaters on November 4, and we got our first glimpse at the Sorcerer Supreme in action when the first trailer debuted back in April. While we wait for the next footage to be released, new merchandise photos give us perhaps our best look at this iconic costume yet.
The photos surfaced on Twitter earlier today, featuring our first look at mugs, lunchboxes and pint glasses featuring Benedict Cumberbatch as the title character. We don't know when these items will be up for sale yet, or how much they'll cost, but we can certainly expect a lot more merchandise to be revealed in the months ahead. Unfortunately, this merchandise doesn't offer »
Back in March, Mike Colter, who plays the title character in the upcoming Marvel/Netflix TV series Luke Cage, revealed that the series will premiere on September 30. Production has been under way since February, and the show is still shooting in New York, although we don't know when filming may wrap. Today we have new photos from the set, which give us our first look at one of the show's previously-unannounced villains, Willis Stryker, a.k.a. Diamondback.
The photos have surfaced throughout Twitter, where it has been confirmed that Diamondback is being played by actor Erik Laray Harvey. The photos showcase a street fight between Diamondback and the Power Man himself, Luke Cage, but we don't have too many details about how this character is introduced, or if the show will stick close to this character's comic book roots. It isn't known how many episodes of the first season »
The first few details about "Jessica Jones" season two have arrived, with one in particular standing out immediately: Jones herself won't be the sole focus this time around. That's from a spoiler-heavy Nerdist interview with showrunner Melissa Rosenberg, who explains that the first season of Netflix's Marvel show did so well introducing and developing supporting characters (like Hellcat, Nuke and the Night Nurse) that more screentime will likely be spent bringing them to the fore. Read More: Review: Here's What Makes 'Marvel's Jessica Jones' Season 1 So, So Important "Jessica Jones" premiered exclusively on the streaming service last November, quickly earning high praise — many critics and fans consider it the best TV series based on a Marvel property. Ritter plays a former superhero who opens a detective agency. Rosenberg, who also penned the screenplays for all five "Twilight" films, says in the video that she hopes to give the hard-working actress at. »

Just two weeks ago, Marvel unveiled the first trailer for the highly-anticipated Doctor Strange, which gave us our first full look at The Ancient One, played by Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton. The footage, paired with the first look at Scarlett Johansson in Ghost in the Shell, sparked a new "whitewashing" controversy, with several fans upset that both movies cast caucasian females for roles that, in the source materials for both movies, were ethnic characters. Last week, Tilda Swinton herself spoke out about the casting controversy, revealing that she was never approached to play an Asian character, but now we have a new perspective from one of Doctor Strange's writers.
C. Robert Cargill, who co-wrote the script with his longtime collaborator and Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson and Jon Spaihts, recently appeared on the Youtube podcast Double Toasted, where he shared his thoughts about the casting controversy. The writer compared »
