New ‘Doctor Strange’ Character Motion Posters Released

Marvel continues to double down on their marketing campaign for Doctor Strange with new character motion posters debuting on Twitter that showcase Madds Mikkelsen’s Kaecilius, Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Mordo, and Tilda Swinton’s Ancient One from the upcoming film.

Each motion poster has a trippy effect that presents the illusion of transformation through the use of magic. In the film, Madds Mikkelsen plays a villain named Kaecilius who has become seduced by what he has seen on the other side of reality and is determined to merge all the universes into one. His character poster is accompanied with the quote:

“It’s the end and the beginning. You’ll die protecting this world.”

Chiwetel Ejiofor’s character, Mordo, who is traditionally a villain in the comics, will act as an ally to Doctor Strange in the film. It’s likely that we’ll see his character’s descent into darkness over the course of multiple films as he turns from friend to foe. His character poster is accompanied with the quote:

“Might I offer you some advice, forget everything that you think you know.”

Tilda Swinton’s character, the Ancient One is who Doctor Strange meets during his travels to Nepal, while searching for a cure to his damaged hands. She teaches him the ways of the mystical arts as he becomes the Sorcerer Supreme. Her character poster is accompanied with the quote:

“What if I told you the reality you know is one of many?”

Doctor Strange tells the story of Stephen Strange, an arrogant and rich neurosurgeon, who is humbled when he is in a terrible car accident that cripples his hands, which no longer allows him to do what he does best. Searching the world for a cure, Doctor Strange finds himself in Nepal, where he encounters the Ancient One, a woman of insurmountable power and wisdom that takes an interest in him and shows him the ways of the mystic arts to protect the world from inter-dimensional threats.

Doctor Strange will be released in North American theaters on November 4th, 2016.
