Get Your First (Blurry) Glimpse of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange in Leaked Set Image
With Benedict Cumberbatch playing the titular hero and a supporting cast that includes talent like Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Rachel McAdams, Marvel's Doctor Strange is shaping up to be one of the most intriguing movie prospects of 2016. Production is getting underway on Scott Derrickson's project out in Nepal right now, and that news has brought with it the very first glimpse of Cumberbatch as Doctor Stephen Strange.


While incredibly grainy, this image is exciting for reasons beyond giving us our first glimpse of a mustachioed Benedict Cumberbatch. The fact that Derrickson's production has opted to shoot in real life Nepalese locations instead of green-screening will certainly raise eyebrows. While it does represent an admirable commitment to physical cinema, Nepal was recently devastated by an Earthquake and is in the midst of some serious political unrest.

Still, it looks like the on-set shenanigans have begun and with the first set photo leaking online, there's hope that Marvel may release an official image soon.
