‘Doctor Strange’ Set Photos Show Benedict Cumberbatch in Action


Doctor Strange

Filming is currently underway for Marvel‘s Doctor Strange, and some great photos from a recent shoot in New York have hit the internet.

Benedict Cumberbatch stars as the titular hero, a brilliant but arrogant and conceited surgeon who gets a new lease on life when a sorcerer takes him under his wing and trains him to defend the world against evil. Marvel have a knack for picking the perfect cast members, and we’re thinking they’ve nailed it again with Cumberbatch.

The Oscar nominee, known for leading BBC’s Sherlock and for putting in memorable work in films such Star Trek Into Darkness and The Imitation Game, looks absolutely perfect for the role, as evidenced by the many on-set pics that have made their way online. This particular day of shooting looks to be for an action scene of sorts, with Strange and Chiwetel Ejiofor’s Baron Mordo running down a New York City street. Check out the pics below.

Doctor Strange is up high, very high, on our list of must-see pics on the horizon. It’s a big new direction for Marvel, and we’re downright stoked Cumberbatch is the man at forefront.

The film, which also boasts Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen, Scott Adkins, Michael Stuhlbarg and Benedict Wong among the cast, is scheduled to hit the U.S. on November 4.
