Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Mads Mikkelsen are spotted in full costume filming scenes for the latest Marvel superhero movie, “Doctor Strange” in New York City.
Oooh, we don’t know you guys…
There are a ton of pictures below this, so we’re going to put our commentary here and let them speak for themselves. We realize this is totally arbitrary on our parts, because we’ve given a lot of goofy costumes a pass over the years, but doesn’t this all look a little … silly?
Maybe it’s the juxtaposition of the NYC setting and the magical ninja/Lord of the Rings-style getups, but it’s not really working for us. Doctor Strange is an inherently weird character (hence the name) with a long history of goofy and over-the-top costumes. On the one hand, we’re glad to see they’re not shying away from that. On the other hand, we’re not sure they managed a solution that can be taken seriously.
We’re not stupid, however. We have every reason to expect vigorous disagreement on this point. Maybe we’ll be proven wrong when the trailers come out. This needs to be a lot more experimental and boundary-pushing than the normal Marvel movie.
