Upcoming superheroes movies we are waiting for

Doctor Strange (6 November 2016)


Doctor Strange will be the last superhero movie of 2016 and it will mark the introduction of genuine magic in the MCU. The character has been teased in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, while it is also expected for the Ant-Man events to play an important part in the story (as in the Quantum Realm).

While many fans expected for Dormammu to be the main villain, Doctor Strange will feature in his first solo flick a rather unknown villain – Kaecilius, portrayed by Mads Mikkelsen. Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) won’t be a villainous character just yet, while the rumor is that the ruler of the Dark Dimension will be teased (and will, probably, cameo).

Tilda Swinton was cast in the role of the Ancient One, who will be a 600 years old sorcerer of Celtic origins. So this is quite a difference between the movie and the comic books, where the Ancient One was an old Tibetan male.

The director Scott Derrickson has specialized in horror movies – though this is not a reason to believe that this superhero movie will mark any change in the tone of the MCU (previously, the directors of Captain America: Winter Soldier were known for their comedies). However, he will certainly bring a different flavor into the mix.
