Why Doctor Strange’s Costume Was A Big Challenge To Adapt For The Big Screen Academy Award-winning costume designer Alexandra Byrne has worked on a bunch of the previous Marvel Studio films, but the challenge to adapt Doctor Strange‘s costume for the big screen was harder than even she could have imagined. We conclude our on-set coverage from Doctor Strange with a brief chat with Doctor Strange costume designer Alexandra Byrn. We usually talk to costume designers on our set visits but don’t typically post the full interview transcripts, often incorporating the information into our set visit reports.

New DOCTOR STRANGE Stills And Character Posters Explore The Sorcerer Supreme's World They're cutting it pretty close, but Marvel Studios has lifted the embargo on Doctor Strange set reports today, and with those come a new batch of stills and character posters (unfortunately, there's still no sign of one final trailer). The latter are particularly eye catching, though the former provide an intriguing look at what's to come for Stephen Strange during his training with The Ancient One. Doctor Strange follows the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.

Benedict Cumberbatch Confirms Doctor Strange’s Return for Infinity War Marvel Studios is fresh off their biggest film yet in Captain America: Civil War, a movie that featured twelve super powered people fighting one another. If viewers thought this was the maximum number of heroes that they could fit in a single film, Avengers: Infinity War and the currently Untitled Avengers sequel will be quite the surprise.

The Walking Dead’s Danai Gurira Talks Black Panther & Tupac Biopic TV fans recognize Danai Gurira as katana-wielding hero Michonne in AMC’s The Walking Dead. Gurira has garnered much praise for her four-seasons-long portrayal of Michonne, whose complex backstory is laden with trauma. We last saw Michonne and other members of Rick’s squad in immediate peril at the hands of the villainous Negan, and are eager to see more from her when the show returns to AMC this fall. Outside of The Walking Dead, though, Gurira is a bit of a Renaissance Woman.

Benedict Cumberbatch Was The Only Actor Seriously Considered For Doctor Strange I seem to remember feeling around the time Doctor Strange was announced was all the buzz was entirely around Benedict Cumberbatch getting cast in the main role. There was a time where it was reported the actor couldn’t do it because a production of Hamlet would clash with the filming, but eventually, that was worked out. It seems that Cumberbatch was always the choice too. Speaking to Empire, director Scott Derrickson said that Cumberbatch was ‘the only actor we seriously considered’. However, it took some doing.

Chadwick Boseman Says ‘Black Panther’ Will Explore the Character’s Origins Chadwick Boseman‘s T’Challa may have made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut in Captain America: Civil War, but he raises many questions that are still unanswered when the credits roll. Some of this is due to him being a supporting player in a movie that is really about Captain America and Iron Man, but much of it has to do with the fact that he’s going to be the subject of his own solo adventure, due out in 2018. So fret not!

Every Shot of Black Panther in 'Civil War' Was CG Here’s another mind-boggling tidbit from the fascinating Captain America: Civil War Blu-ray commentary. Every shot of Black Panther in Civil War is CGI. Not just the obvious ones, like where Panther’s chasing the Winter Soldier on foot or he’s in a hand-to-claw fight with Captain America. Every. Single. Shot. Continue reading…

Captain America: Civil War left a lot of damage in its wake for the Avengers on many levels. The cataclysmic schism sent many of its combatants into self-exile or stashed them away in Wakanda. Suffice to say, there are still many unanswered questions in the wake of Civil War, including why the Incredible Hulk wasn’t a part of it. Rumors have Bruce Banner off in hiding himself or even off planet.

Doctor Strange Hot Toys Figures Officially Revealed The Marvel Cinematic Universe keeps expanding with its third “phase” – something that began earlier this year with the release of Captain America: Civil War. Phase 3 will delve deeper into the cosmic side of the MCU too, by introducing characters like Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, and more space misfits in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The next big release on the list is Doctor Strange, the first standalone movie featuring neurosurgeon-turned-Sorcerer Supreme, Stephen Strange (played by Benedict Cumberbatch).
