Minimates reveal the identity of the characters of Mads Mikkelsen and other actors!
There has been much speculation and fan theory surrounding the true identity of Mads Mikkelsen’s character on Doctor Strange. But a line of Diamond Select Doctor Strange minimates have revealed who the villains will be. The following information hasn’t been confirmed by Marvel, and also contains spoilers.
The figure confirms that Mikkelsen will be playing the villain Kaecilius and that Zara Pythian is playing a character named Zealot:
A Diamond Select Toys Release! The next chapter of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is now the next entry in the long-running Marvel Minimates line! Series 70 of Marvel Minimates mini-figures travels to the world of the Doctor Strange movie, with four different two-packs: Dr. Strange with The Ancient One, Mordo with Kaecilius, the specialty-exclusive Stephen Strange with Christine Palmer and the specialty-exclusive Wong & Zealot! Each 2-inch Minimates mini-figure features 14 points of articulation and fully interchangeable parts. Each two-pack is packaged in a full-color window box.
Although the actor didn’t reveal what his role was either, he did have this to say from an earlier interview:
“Not really a baddie, but someone who believes in something else than what Doctor Strange believes in.”
The minimates description also confirms that Rachel McAdams is playing Christine Palmer, and unless these character descriptions are fake, we’ll be seeing these characters in the film.
Doctor Strange also stars Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme, Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, and Benedict Wong as Wong. It is set to premier November 4th 2016.
