In Doctor Strange, the appearance of both Kaecilius and his Zealots’ appearance changed after contacting Dormammu using the Book of Cagliostro, with the areas around their eyes becoming cracked, dark purple and outlined with silver. The effect was a great way to mark them as the film’s antagonists, but newly released concept art for Doctor Strange shows that the characters might have ended up with a very different look.
The image comes from concept artist Jerad S. Marantz’s Instagram and is captioned, “Early zealot exploration, for Doctor Strange. #zealot #drstrange #costume #conceptart #marvelcinematicuniverse #marvelmovies #comicbookmovies #villain.” The image on the left is, assumedly, prior to contacting Dormammu, while in the piece of art on the right, the effects around the eyes aren’t present. Instead, parts of the character’s face are darker than others, with the outline resembling a helmet or a mask.
In addition to Doctor Strange, Marantz has worked on Guardians of the Galaxy and Captain America: Civil War.
Doctor Strange was a commercial and critical success, earning $677.7 million worldwide and a certified fresh rating with 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. Benedict Cumberbatch is set to reprise his role as Doctor Strange in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, slated for release May 4, 2018.
Available on Digital HD and Blu-ray, Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt, Scott Adkins, Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton.
