Having scored the gig of directing probably the most interesting of the upcoming new character standalone films from Marvel Studios, filmmaker Scott Derrickson certainly seems chuffed to have won it. Today, Derrickson posted this image on his Twitter account of what appears to be Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular “Doctor Strange”.
Though confirmed to be a fan made creation he’s simply impressed by rather than an actual bit of concept, it’s nevertheless impressive. Derrickson also includes a quote from the classic “Burning Down the House” song. The film itself opens November 4th 2016.
