Directed By: N/A
Release Date: N/A
I've been supporting this project to make it into reality for quite a while, at this point - mainly due to my top candidate for the role, Benedict Cumberbatch (of Sherlock fame), who I want to see in the role so badly. That being said, I've also ever tried numerous times to make a fan-made poster based on the subject, and I've also failed as frequently...well, until now, at least! I think it's safe to fairly call this product a success, as it looks pretty nice overall. The manipulated image of Doctor Strange was made by combining the body of Paul Bettany as Priest (from 2011's Priest), and the face of Benedict Cumberbatch (taken from a random press screening image of the actor), with the colors of the costume - as well as the classic "symbol" on it, which I styled after the Punisher's from Punisher: War Zone - and Strange's trademark hair applied to the image with custom adjustments. (Hue/saturation for the former, and brushes for the latter.) And, although the poster as a whole clearly has numerous rough spots if you look at it in detail, I'm satisfied enough with it, especially with the pretty smooth-looking manipulated image of the central character; quite a difficult feat to achieve, if you ask me. There are also the tagline - actually taken from the title of the comic where Thor first appeared in, as far as I remember (I couldn't think of anything more suitable) - and the title, which treatment I had to revise from my last attempt, since it doesn't go well with the poster. (Look closely, and you'll notice the word "Doctor" between the "Strange" letters.) Yeah, I also typed the credit block by myself, but apart of Benedict Cumberbatch as the main lead, Alfonso Cuarón as the director, and Brian K. Vaughan as the writer (I think it could work, much like how J. Michael Stracynzski wrote Thor), the names of the actors and crews were randomly thrown in to it.
