Several pictures from the set of Doctor Strange have been making rounds this past week. We got a first good glimpse at Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange and now we have new look at another main cast member, Chiwetel Ejiofor. As confirmed by Deadline a couple of months ago, Chiwetel Ejiofor will indeed be playing Baron Mordo.
Though a longtime villain in the comics, it is still unconfirmed whether Ejiofor’s Mordo will be a villain in the film or not. Given the amount of rumored villains in the cast, fans are speculating that Mordo could possibly take more of a supporting role in this film and will instead become a villain in future installments, leaving Mads Mikkaelsen and Tilda Swinton to be the remaining villainous prospects. A day ago, Latino Review dropped a rumor detailed the possible plot of Doctor Strange involving the year 1968, an inter-dimensional portal and a sorcerer named Kaecilius.
With filming underway in Nepal, expect a good amount of Strange news in the weeks to come. Doctor Strange is set to hit theaters November 4, 2016!
