Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Strange Appreciation Thread: Because we're dying to see his magic powers

Welcome to Dr. Strange Appreciation Thread #1






Fictional character biography


Dr. Stephen Strange is a brilliant but egotistical neurosurgeon who only cares about wealth from his career. However, a car accident shatters the bones in his hands. The damage effectively ends his ability to conduct surgery, since his hands now tremble uncontrollably. Too proud to take on a teaching job, Strange desperately searches for a way to restore his hands, consulting doctors, homeopathic treatments, and traveling around the world to remote regions for exotic cures, to no avail.

After he exhausts his funds, he becomes homeless, forcing him to perform "back alley" medical procedures for cash.[citation needed] Depressed and still searching, Strange locates a hermit called the Ancient One (who is actually the Earth's Sorcerer Supreme) in the Himalayas. The Ancient One refuses to help Strange because of his selfishness, but senses a good side that he attempts to bring to the surface. He fails, but Strange's goodness appears when he discovers the Ancient One's disciple, Baron Mordo, attempting to kill the old man. After a confrontation with Mordo leads to him being shackled with restraining spells preventing him from either attacking Mordo or warning the Ancient One, Strange desperately and selflessly accepts the Ancient One's offer to become his apprentice to have some hope of helping the old man. The Ancient One, pleased at Strange's profound change of heart, accepts the westerner and promptly frees him from the restraining spells while explaining he was aware of Mordo's treachery all along. Strange soon becomes Mordo's most enduring enemy as the Ancient One teaches the doctor the mystic arts. After completing his training, Strange returns to New York and takes up residence within the Sanctum Sanctorum, a townhouse located in Greenwich Village which is guarded by Strange's personal servant Wong.

As the Ancient One's disciple, Strange encounters the entity Nightmare, and other mystical foes before meeting Dormammu, a warlord from an alternate dimension called the "Dark Dimension". Strange is aided by a nameless girl, later called Clea, who is eventually revealed to be Dormammu's niece. When Strange helps a weakened Dormammu drive off the rampaging Mindless Ones and return them to their prison, he is allowed to leave unchallenged.

Powers and abilities

Strange is a practicing magician who draws his powers from mystical entities such as Agamotto, Cyttorak, Ikonn, Oshtur, Raggadorr, and Watoomb who lend their energies for spells. Strange also wields mystical artifacts including the Cloak of Levitation which enables him to fly, the Eye of Agamotto whose light is used to negate evil magic, the Book of the Vishanti which contains knowledge of white magic, and the Orb of Agamotto which is used as a crystal ball.

In addition to his magical abilities, he is trained in several martial arts disciplines. Strange was a skilled neurosurgeon before nerve damage impaired his hands.

Doctor Strange is described as "the mightiest magician in the cosmos" and "more powerful by far than any of your fellow humanoids" by Eternity, the sentience of the Marvel Universe. He holds the title of Sorcerer Supreme from 1973 (with the death of the Ancient One) to the present, except during an interruption from 1992 to 1995. He relinquishes the title once again in 2009, but reclaims it in 2012 when he proves himself willing to protect the world even without the title.

The only thing that saved me from flipping tables that the next Thor movie is 2 years away was the fact that Dr Strange is a year away, so....I'm not too sad about that...yet. Next year will be fun though because after Dr. Strange there should be new Sherlock eps coming.

And LOTS more pictures here --

First Look At Chiwetel Ejiofor As 'Baron Mordo' Filming DOCTOR STRANGE In Nepal

Quote:
Thanks to The Kathmandu Post as well as several Twitter and Instagram users, we have our first sighting of Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo on the set of Doctor Strange. The English actor, who appears to be the mystery hooded figure that we saw yesterday, joined Benedict Cumberbatch today in Patan Durbar Square, Nepal where the two filmed a few scenes together. According to one photographer, the scenes ultimately involved Strange finding Mordo "who seems to be his guide."

Directed by Scott Derrickson, Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Dr. Stephen Strange), Rachael McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor (Baron Mordo), Tilda Swinton (The Ancient One), with Mads Mikkelsen, and Michael Stuhlbarg (Nicodemus West), and the movie opens November 4, 2016.
