First Look at Benedict Cumberbatch as ‘Doctor Strange’

When Doctor Strange began shooting this past November in Nepal, we got a look at leading man Benedict Cumberbatch as he set out on his journey to find the Ancient One. Now, we have our official first look at the actor in his Marvel superhero costume. The image arrives courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. The Marvel Phase Three adventure will be the centerpiece of their latest upcoming issue.

Benedict Cumberbatch plays Dr. Stephen Strange in this mystical adventure, which features an ensemble cast including Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Amy Landecker, Scott Adkins and Mads Mikkelsen.

‘Doctor Strange’ Video Shows Cumberbatch & Mysterious Hooded Character

Earlier this week, we showed you the first set photos from Marvel's highly-anticipated Phase Three adventure Doctor Strange, which is currently shooting in Nepal. Yesterday we got a better look at the bearded Benedict Cumberbatch on the set as he was photographed walking through the streets of Kathmandu. Today, Dutourdumonde Photography has captured the first video from the set, which gives us another look at Benedict Cumberbatch, and also teases a mysterious hooded figure.

The video appears to be taken from the same set as the previous photos, with the actor seen walking through a crowded street, thumbing through a book of some sort. We also see a hooded figure whose face is obscured, and from the way the video was cut together, it isn't known if this mystery character is following Dr. Stephen Strange, or if he is important to the story. We also get a few brief glimpses of director Scott Derrickson, and if that wasn't enough, more photos from the set have also surfaced.

‘Doctor Strange’ Photos Have a Better Look at Benedict Cumberbatch

Yesterday, we brought you the first set photo from Marvel's Doctor Strange. As of yet, we have no official word from Disney nor Marvel that confirms shooting has started. More set photos have arrived today. And we get a better look at star Benedict Cumberbatch. Though, this latest sneak peek shows our leading man before his big http://movieweb.com/doctor-strange-movie-rachel-mcadams-character/superhero transformation.

One of the images reveals the film crew that is traveling with Benedict Cumberbatch through Nepal. It is very small. And it looks like these may be quick pick-up shots to be used in a montage of some sort. These certainly aren't spectacular action set pieces. And it's speculated that we're seeing Dr. Stephen Strange on the first leg of his journey, as he sets out to become the Sorcerer Supreme. In fact, the crew here is so small, perhaps this is test footage being shot, or some other production altogether.

Benedict Cumberbatch on ‘Doctor Strange’: It's Different

Benedict Cumberbatch on ‘Doctor Strange’: It's Different

After months of speculation, Marvel finally announced last month that ever-popular actor Benedict Cumberbatch is set to take on the role of Doctor Strange. Though the actor vehemently denied he was involved with the project last year, he recently opened up to The Wall Street Journal about taking on the role, which a lot of other actors were hesitant to sign on for. He doesn't consider the movie a risk. But don't expect any spoilers just yet, as he's not allowed to talk about anything too specific.

Doctor Strange follows the story of neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.

‘Doctor Strange’ Concept Art Features Benedict Cumberbatch

After first engaging in talks back in October, Marvel Studios finally confirmed earlier this month that Benedict Cumberbatch is portraying the title character in Doctor Strange. Casting for the supporting roles is starting to heat up, with Morgan Freeman being eyed to play the Ancient One, who serves as a mentor to Stephen Strange in the comic books. While we wait for the cast to be finalized, director Scott Derrickson recently took to his Twitter page to debut new artwork feturing Benedict Cumberbatch.

It isn't known if this artwork is something Scott Derrickson created himself, or if it was artwork that was commissioned by Marvel. Regardless of how official it is, it does paint an intriguing portrait of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, giving us an early tease of how the actor may look as this popular character when the comic book adaptation arrives in theaters November 4, 2016. It isn't known exactly when production will begin on this Phase Three adventure, but it will likely start shooting after Captain America: Civil War wraps next year.
