New Doctor Strange photos show off the Ancient One, training scenes

Plus, Strange in full gear

Doctor Strange

Marvel’s next big superhero movie is Doctor Strange and ahead of the film’s release, the studio has released a batch of new stills from the movie that show off the sorcerer in training.

The set of nine photos seen in the tweets below, accompanied by a couple of new character posters, mostly focus on the sorcerer (Benedict Cumberbatch) in various settings. These mostly include photos of Strange training with the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) and Baron Karl Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor), as well as photos of the hero in his full costume.

The images don’t give any real insight into the movie, other than one in a hospital that shows Strange hunching over and being helped by his former co-worker and fellow doctor, Christine Palmer (Rachel McAdams), but there are a couple of really interesting behind-the-scenes type shots, too.

The character posters, which can also be seen below, have the similar aesthetic to the original Doctor Strange poster that was released a few months ago and focus on Palmer and Wong (Benedict Wong). We haven’t seen much of Wong in any of the trailers or images released, and this is the first in-depth look we’re seeing of the character.

Based on the long running comic book series created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Doctor Strange follows acclaimed neurosurgeon Stephen Strange after he sustains career-ending injuries to his hands as the result of a car accident. In an attempt to get his hands back to the functioning level they were before, he heads to East Asia to seek out non-traditional medicine and that's where he meets the Ancient One, learns about the other world and starts training to become a sorcerer.

Doctor Strange, directed by Scott Derrickson, will hit theaters Nov. 4.
