It's Doctor Strange!

You've probably already seen this Entertainment Weekly cover elsewhere online but for those who you who haven't this is the first released photo of Benedict Cumberbatch in his outfit for the Doctor Strange movie!

I was very pleased to see they've more or less retained the right look for the costume as I feared they'd just go for an all-black suit or something. The outfit that Strange wears in the comics wouldn't look great on screen if they'd followed it too closely but this looks like a very close compromise.

You can find out more, and see more images, at Heidi MacDonald's excellent The Beat comics news site here:  

Created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko for Strange Tales in 1963, Doctor Strange, Master of the Mystic Arts wasn't always one of Marvel's most successful strips but it did gain a faithful following by readers who preferred its more mystical and surrealist stories. I was a great fan of the Doctor Strange strips of the sixties and seventies, ever since first reading his early adventures reprinted in Terrific and Fantastic weeklies in 1967/68. I've enjoyed all the Marvel Studios movies so far and this is one I'm really looking forward to. We have a long wait though! It's not released until next November!
