Doctor Strange 2 Concept Art Reveals Horrifying Zombie Strange

Dactor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness the boundaries more than any Marvel Studios project. The Sam Raimi movie dove head-on into the concept of a multiverse, introducing some absolutely bizarre characters as a result. One of these was Zombie Strange, a version of Benedict Cumberbatch’s wizard of the same name from an alternate universe who was killed during the film’s opening moments. While the character was quite gruesome when he was revived later in the movie, some concept artists took it a step further.

Visual development artist Thomas du Crest has shared a series of Zombie Strange paintings, each more gruesome than the next. The first shows the Master of the Mystic Arts in a similar way to how he was in the movie, but with his nose rotted away. Each piece then takes away more skin until the wizard is left with only a skeleton. Check out the pieces for yourself below.

Zombie Strange almost didn’t make it

At one point, Raimi expressed concern about including the character as it was essentially too similar to his style.

“I was totally writing with Sam in mind the entire time,” Madness writer Michael Waldron shared with Polygon last year. “I had watched all of his films. I was really trying to get an ear for the dialogue in his films because I wanted it to feel like a Sam Raimi film. But Sam, to his credit, had no interest in coming in and just the hits Sam didn’t come in and say “I want you to give me a zombie. And when I presented him with the idea of ​​Dead Strange, there was real hesitation on his part, because he didn’t want to seem like he was just saying, ‘I want to do my Sam Raimi thing.'”
