Marvel Releases New Official Photo of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange
Doctor Strange wrapped production this past weekend with an outdoors shoot in New York City. Along with that came a flurry of paparazzi photos of stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen in action. But, if you’re hungering for something a little more official, we direct you to this new photo of Cumberbatch as the good doctor.
By the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth! The photo, which you can see in full below, is so faithful that it almost looks like fan art. It looks almost literally ripped out of the pages of the comic. From the costume to the hair and mustache to the Eye of Agamotto. It’s all there. He’s not wearing a black leather jumpsuit like some other Marvel adaptations.
If this isn’t enough, next week on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Benedict Cumberbatch will show up on April 12 to exclusively premiere the first Doctor Strange trailer.
In the film, Cumberbatch plays Stephen Strange, a surgeon gifted with extraordinary powers following a harrowing accident. Ejiofor co-stars as Baron Mordo, a fellow student of The Ancient One, played by Tilda Swinton. The film also stars Michael Stuhlbarg, Benedict Wong, Rachel McAdams, Amy Landecker and Scott Adkins
Doctor Strange opens in theaters on November 4.
