Going on right now at the D23 Expo, Disney’s very own special convention, is the panel which pretty much everybody is most excited for: ‘Worlds, Galaxies and Universes: Live Action at the Walt Disney Studios,’ the panel which is all about Disney’s own live-action output and the stuff people actually care about, Marvel and Star Wars!!!
First off, Marvel took to the stage to talk about Doctor Strange. Unfortunately there was no footage to show (since they’re not actually filming), however they did show off some concept art and Benedict Cumberbatch appeared in a video message, but the art sounds cool as heck. Check out an assorted selection of fine tweets below…
The movie is keeping the neurosurgeon/car accident origin for Dr. Strange #D23Expo

DOCTOR STRANGE concept art: Cars levitated into the air; buildings turning over INCEPTION-style, Benedict Cumberbatch in the red cape … — Josh Lincoln Dickey (@JLDlite) August 15, 2015
… Tilda and Chiewetel in costume, bizarre otherworldly dimensions. Insane colors. No creatures, alas. But there will be. #D23Expo

Cumberbatch looks amazing in these concept drawings. Like a devlish demon full of sexy magicke. Facial hair is on point.

Also of note, the art for The Ancient One was an old asian dude. Pre-Swinton casting or are we getting something weird?

It doesn’t look as if any of that will be getting released online, but on the off-chance something does then we’ll make sure to get it up. Doctor Strange will be hitting theaters next November, including “girls, cars, explosions, astral projections . . . the usual fare”.
