“Doctor Strange”: Mads Mikkelsen’s Role, Villainous Motivations Revealed

“Mads’ character is a sorcerer who breaks off into his own sect,” elaborated Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige. “[He] believes that the Ancient One is just protecting her own power base and that the world may be better off if we were to allow some of these other things through [to his dimension].”

“We will take audiences through sort of a guide to the multiverse, other dimensions, and there are amazing things out there — wonders that are going to be hopefully visually extremely interesting and unique to this movie,” Feige continued. “But there are also very scary things in these other dimensions.”

He added that it’s Strange and The Ancient One’s job to defend humanity from such extra-dimensional “scary things.”

Directed by Scott Derrickson and starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton, Chiwitel Ejiofor and more, “Doctor Strange” opens on November 4, 2016.
