Potential villains revealed for Marvel's Doctor Strange movie!

06.20.2013

As the Marvel Cinematic Universe continues into phase 2, news of the phase 3 is beginning to take shape and today Latino Review has a scoop on the villains that could potentially be featured in the planned DOCTOR STRANGE film. Although no director or cast is attached to the project yet, the film is in development and these selections are very consistent with DOCTOR STRANGE's rogues gallery. Take a look at the breakdown below and sound off with your thoughts on these choices in the strikebacks!

First up is Dormammu, the powerful flame-headed villain of Marvel lore. He's described as:

"Something worse than a demon". It is unknown exactly how ancient he is, as he inhabits a wholly alien, conventional-laws-of-physics-defying realm separate from the regular Marvel Universe, and certain similar beings, such as the Dweller-in-Darkness are known to predate it. He is known to well precede the creation of the current demonic netherworlds to have clashed with Agamotto hundreds of millions of years ago, to have served as the primary enemy of the Vishanti ever since, and to have been considered an extreme threat by the mages of "pre-cataclysm" Atlantis.

The second villain of the film is Karl Mordo aka Baron Mordo, who is described as:

Originally a Transylvanian nobleman (born in Varf Mandra), Mordo became a student of the Tibetan sorcerer known as the Ancient One.[citation needed] When Mordo plotted to kill his teacher, the Ancient One's visitor, Dr. Stephen Strange learned of the plot, forcing Mordo to cast restraining spells to prevent him from warning his master or attacking him. When Strange selflessly decided to accept the Ancient One's offer to learn magic in order to help the old man, the Ancient One freed him from those spells, which he was fully aware were in place, and trained him as a formidable enemy of Mordo. Eventually Mordo was exiled by the Ancient One. Mordo's abilities were similar to those of Doctor Strange, but Mordo was particularly skilled at astral projection and hypnosis, as well as mesmerism. He was more than willing to use powerful black magic and invoke demons, both of which Strange was reluctant or unable to do, although both acts would sometimes backfire on Mordo.

And the final villain is known as Mindless One, who is described as:

Extra-dimensional creatures summoned via magic to do the bidding of others (they have no will of their own). They appear to have a thick, roughly humanoid shape standing taller than most men and a hide that appears to be made of rock. They have no faces to speak of except a single glowing eye. They have savage dispositions and minimal intelligence.

What do you think? Do these villains stack up to expectations?
