This is Strange.

Via Entertainment Weekly, here's our first glimpse of Benedict Cumberbatch all duded up in his sorcerers' best as Stephen Strange, Marvel's Master of the Mystic Arts, for the Doctor Strange feature film due out Thanksgiving. I know nothing about what to expect from the movie, but I am a fan of the early comics by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, about an arrogant surgeon forced to find a new path when an accident robs him of his surgical abilities.

Given the thematic turf it needs to cover, Doctor Strange promises to be one of the wonkiest -- and thus riskiest -- offerings yet from Marvel Studios, currently bounding from victory to victory. I'm hoping we'll get to see some footage from the Scott Derrickson-directed pic soon, but for now, Cumberbatch looks great, and this is a promising start. Jump over to EW for some more pics.
