Doctor Strange is one of the Marvel Universe’s illest characters, a master of mysticism and sorcery that makes him a most powerful being and superhero. Actor Benedict Cumberbatch will be portraying him in the forthcoming Doctor Strange film, and now we have a look at him in costume.
Cumberbatch covers Entertainment Weekly in his full Dr. Stephen Vincent Strange attire.
This week’s First Look issue of Entertainment Weekly offers a veryearly peek at Benedict Cumberbatch in Marvel’s new superhero film,Doctor Strange (out Nov. 4). How early? Well, principal photography on the film — which costars Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Mads Mikkelsen — only began in November, and director Scott Derrickson won’t wrap the movie until March. EW’s First Look cover shoot with Cumberbatch was one of the very first times the British actor tried on the costume that his character, Doctor Stephen Strange, wears after transforming from a self-centered surgeon to a world-protecting sorcerer. The Sherlock star even used the shoot as something of a research-and-development session for the gesticulations which are part of his character’s spell-casting.
Doctor Strange will be in theaters Nov. 4, 2016.
