“Doctor Strange” just wrapped up principal photography. The movie will be released on November 4, 2016 in the U.S.
Director Scott Derrickson confirmed on his official twitter account that “Doctor Strange” wrapped up filming yesterday (April 3rd). Principal photography for the movie began last November. Most of the filming took place in the Longcross Studios in the UK. The movie also shot on location in London, New York, Hong Kong and Kathmandu, Nepal. Rachel co-stars in the anticipated movie alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton. Cumberbatch, Ejiofor and Mikkelsen were spotted filming on location in New York this past weekend. It’s still not confirmed who Rachel will be playing, but EW revealed earlier that she will play “a fellow surgeon that has a history with Strange”. The movie will be released on November 4, 2016 in the U.S. and October 28, 2016 in the U.K.
Entertainment Weekly has the first official look at “Doctor Strange” in their current issue, which is on (digital) newsstands right now. We have added the digital scans of the entire feature in our gallery. More details on Rachel’s character has been revealed by the magazine, while the characters name is yet to be revealed. Over the past few days EW released more details on the movie via their website, including more details about Rachel’s co-stars Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mad Mikkelsen. The excerpts and links can be found after the jump.
Entertainment Weekly has the first official look at Benedict Cumberbatch as “Doctor Strange” in their upcoming First Look issue, which will hit digital newsstands on December 31. The movie, directed by Scott Derrickson, began principal photography in November of this year and will wrap filming in March 2016. EW has more details about Rachel’s role. The name of the character is yet to be revealed but the nature of the character is revealed.
We know that Benedict Cumberbatch plays the titular surgeon-turned-sorcerer in Marvel’s new superhero movie Doctor Strange (out Nov. 4). We also know that Tilda Swinton portrays a mystic called the Ancient One, that Chiwetel Ejiofor is an associate of the Ancient One called Karl Mordo, and — as EW exclusively revealed — that Mads Mikkelsen has been cast as the movie’s main baddie.
But who is Rachel McAdams playing? That’s a question which has occupied a lot of comic fans ever since it was announced that the star of The Notebook and Spotlight had been cast in the film, and is one we can now answer. Well, sort of.
As is the case with Mikkelsen’s character, the Marvel producers are not releasing the name of the person portrayed by McAdams. But they are happy to give up a little information about the nature of the role.
“Rachel McAdams plays a fellow surgeon that has a history with Strange and is his sort of lynchpin to his old life, once he steps into he role of a sorcerer,” says Kevin Feige, the producer of Doctor Strange and president of Marvel Studios. “She is someone he connects with at the beginning, and reconnects with, and helps anchor his humanity.”
Rachel talked to MTV News during the Gotham Independent Film Awards earlier this week and she briefly spoke about “Doctor Strange“. Marvel previously confirmed the principal cast. Rachel will star alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton.
Like so much about Marvel’s upcoming “Doctor Strange“, Rachel McAdams’ role is still completely shrouded in mystery. Who is she playing, and how will she be connected to the film’s hero, Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch)?
McAdams isn’t ready to get into juicy spoiler territory just yet, but when MTV News caught up with her at the Gotham Independent Film Awards in New York City last night (November 30), which she was attending for her new film “Spotlight,” the actress finally opened up about why she decided to join the Marvel family.
“I mean, I just love the director,” McAdams told us. “I met with Scott [Derrickson] and loved his vision, he was so passionate. And the opportunity to work with Benedict was kind of a no-brainer. And Marvel makes amazing films, so it was a complete package.”
Marvel officially confirmed the cast of “Doctor Strange” by releasing a press release which also confirms that the production officially started. Rachel will star in the movie alongside Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton. It’s not yet confirmed who Rachel will portray. The movie will be released on November 4, 2016 in the U.S.
Marvel Studios announced today that production has begun on “Doctor Strange,” starring Benedict Cumberbatch (“Black Mass,” “The Imitation Game”), Chiwetel Ejiofor (“12 Years a Slave,” “The Martian”), Rachel McAdams (“Southpaw,” “Sherlock Holmes”) and Michael Stuhlbarg (“Steve Jobs,” “A Serious Man”) with Mads Mikkelsen (“Clash of the Titans,” “Casino Royale”) and Academy Award® winner Tilda Swinton (“Michael Clayton,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel”). The film, which opens in U.S. theaters on November 4, 2016, is directed by Scott Derrickson (“Sinister,” “The Exorcism of Emily Rose”). The film will be shot in several locations around the world, including London, New York, Hong Kong and Kathmandu, Nepal.
Screen Daily International is reporting that “Doctor Strange” has begun principal photography in London earlier this week. Rachel’s co-stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Chiwetel Ejiofor were spotted filming in Nepal last week. MEW is reporting that the production will also film in New York. Variety recently reported that Michael Stuhlbarg is in talks to play Nicodemus West, while The Wrap reported yesterday that Amy Landecker joined the cast.
Marvel fantasy Doctor Strange has begun principal photography in the UK at Longcross Film Studios. Following a brief stint on location in Kathmandu, Nepal, the anticipated production is expected to be housed at Longcross until early spring 2016.
Benedict Cumberbatch (The Imitation Game) stars as the eponymous Doctor Strange, a brilliant but arrogant surgeon whose career is derailed but gets a new lease of life when a sorcerer (Tilda Swinton) takes him under his wing and trains him to defend the world against evil. The character, who made his first appearance in the Marvel Universe more than 50 years ago, was first created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko.
Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen, Michael Stuhlbarg and Neve Gachev also star in Marvel’s latest likely blockbuster, which is expected to offer a more psychedelic experience than previous Marvel features. Scott Derrickson directs Jon Spaihts’ script, which is produced by Kevin Feige.
Disney’s release is set for November 2016 in the US.
