Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson has posted a rather interesting tweet, which teases Death (or Mistress Death) from the Marvel Comics.
Derrickson tweeted out an image of the cover from Doctor Strange #2, which features Death.
In what could be a possible spoiler for the movie, we’ll just say the issue sees Doctor Strange confront Death in what is part of his origin story.
Interestingly enough, Thanos just happens to worship Death as well.
We see the cover reads “Dr. Strange Meets… Death!” with Derrickson adding: “As will we all..”
Death, in Marvel Comics lore, is one of the cosmic abstracts and the personification of Death who came into existence at the creation of the universe along with the other cosmic abstracts: Eternity, Infinity and Oblivion. All four more or less balance each other out.
Doctor Strange has a November 4, 2016 release starring Benedict Cumberbatch as Dr. Stephen Strange.
