Empire Magazine has released two exclusive cover artworks for their latest issue featuring Marvel’s “Doctor Strange”. Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Benedict Wong and Tilda Swinton make the cover of the issue.
The feature story explains that the film was deliberately delayed from a July to a November release this year because of Benedict Cumberbatch’s commitment to play “Hamlet” on stage when production was originally going to begin. The project did flirt with the likes of Joaquin Phoenix, Jared Leto and Ryan Gosling but ultimately came back around to Cumberbatch.
Meanwhile IGN spoke with “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” executive producer Jed Whedon recently who confirmed that the mysterious box macguffin seen in this week’s season premiere will have ties to the ‘Strange’ film. The film is currently targeting a November 4th release.
