First Look: Benedict Cumberbatch As DOCTOR STRANGE

DOCTOR STRANGE looks all-powerful in first official image!

Entertainment Weekly has released an exclusive first look at Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel’s Doctor Strange!

At the time, the actor had not yet begun filming and was only on set for an initial fitting and photo shoot, so he expressed some concern about getting the character right in the first piece of movie marketing:

“It was like, okay, I’ve got to keep throwing these poses, these spells, these rune-casting things, everything he does physically. I’m thinking, there’s going to be a huge amount of speculation and intrigue over the positioning of thatfinger as opposed to it being there, or there. And I’m still working on that. We haven’t played any of those scenes yet. I felt really self-conscious. But, then, by the end, it was great. It’s like anything, you just have to experiment.”

Still, we think the actor looks pretty impressive and in-character on the new EW cover! There’s also some new character images, set images, and concept art.


The magazine will feature a full story from the set featuring more of Cumberbatch and his co-stars Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Mads Mikkelsen– including confirmation on exactly who McAdams and Mikkelsen will be playing in the grand scheme of the story.

Doctor Strange is out on November 4, 2016.
