Disney’s D23 Expo 2015 delivered a lot of news that made a lot of kids, enthusiasts, and fans both happy and excited.
Part of what was revealed during the event last Saturday was the first look at the concept design for the character of Doctor Strange. As reported by Vanity Fair, lead titular actor Benedict Cumberbatch was not able to make it to the D23 Expo, since he was all tied up with Hamlet playing on London. However, he still brought himself to the eventin a wayby greeting fans with a pre-recorded video.
“You’re going to get girls, cars, explosions, and astral projections into multiple universes,” he said. “The usual fare.”
Cumberbatch and Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige clearly emphasized that the 2016 Doctor Strange would be “as weird as anything we’ve done.”
The presentation also showed concept arts for Doctor Strange and Baron Mordo. Tilda Swinton’s character, the Ancient One, appeared to be of the feminine gender, despite the actress saying she is not yet sure if her character would be a man or a woman.
The presentation also unveiled the very first official footage from Captain America: Civil War.
The trailer began with the team of Falcon, Black Widow, and Captain America facing and enemy. This is Crossbones, played by Frank Gillo. Crossbones taunts Captain America, mentioning that Bucky remembers him.
William Hurt returns as General Thunderbolt Ross, and he was shown giving Captain America a lecture about being a superhero, saying that while some see them as heroes, some people who are afraid see them as vigilantes instead.
Short fights between Black Widow and Hawkeye were also shown, as well as a glimpse of Chadwick Boseman as Black Panther.
However, there were no footage/glimpses of Tom Holland’s new Spider-Man.
