UPDATE: New images added below!

We've already seen a few on-set photos of Benedict Cumberbatch filming for DOCTOR STRANGE and thanks to EW, we now have the first official look at the actor in costume as the Sorcerer Supreme. The EW cover shoot was one of the first times Cumberbatch tried on the Doctor Strange costume, and he says he used the shoot to work on his spell-casting hand gestures

Get your strange on:

Doctor Strange Benedict Cumberbatch EW Cover

I’m still in the infancy of learning all that. 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 that finger 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.

Cumberbatch also said “There’s going to be crazy s— going on" in the upcoming Marvel film. Are you digging this first real look at the actor as Doctor Strange?

Here's some updated images from EW's issue, including new stills and some concept art from the film:

Directed by Scott Derrickson (DELIVER US FROM EVIL, SINISTER), DOCTOR STRANGE also stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Tilda Swinton and Mads Mikkelsen, and is scheduled to be released on November 4, 2016.

everything about this film is so on point...

I still can't get over the brilliant cast they have brought together... could we get a MCU film to rival Winter Soldier?

Absolutely can't wait to see this. Everything has looked and sounded great thus far and I really can't wait to see what type of mystical spells and magic Strange leaves on the MCU in this film and going forward into Infinity Wars.

me too, I was never interested in him in the comics but this looks awesome. I also was never interested in Ant-man and that movie was fantastic. So...yeah, can't wait!

If this were DC he would be wearing a giant puffy foam muscle suit from Party City under his costume. And his skin would be powder white, and and he would be bald with cult/tribal tattoos on his head.

This comment displays you're a jackass for many reasons. But just out of curiousity, do you find Scarlett Witch's heroine chic goth look true to the comic book iteration of her cape, tights and headdress or do you realize that sometimes what's in a comic book can be altered to make more sense on screen?

His hair would be jet black and bald at the same [link]
Maybe he's referring to Suicide Squads looks. I dunno. I think DC and Marvel are making the costumes fit the 2015 times. What does Superman need a belt with pockets for anyway? He has no gadgets. Unless it's for his glasses.
Honestly, women in skimpy outfits look great, but the practicality is simply not there. So yeah, Scarlet Witch may have had a more modern outfit, but it made sense. Supermans may look different without the red

Supermans may look different without the red undies, but really, it kinda flowed better all blue. The new Batman, Looks fine to me. Wonderwoman's looks better and more Amazon as well.

Looks the part and the guys a dude.

Not really a Doctor Strange comic fan but I'll see this at the cinema... My wife will probably drag me there, she is a bit of a fan.

I know it looks just like a Dr. Strange costume, but it also looks exactly like Benedict Cumberbatch in a coat.

That's because it IS Benedict Cumberbatch in a coat. No matter who plays Dr. Strange, it will ALWAYS BE an actor in a coat.

The look was never a concern of mine

Marvel seems to get a couple things right: the cast brilliantly and the costumes always looked like the stepped right out of a comic book page. What Marvel gets right doesn't outshine the numerous issues their films consistently suffer from including one note villains, copy and paste stories and character motivations, and a lack of ability to feel like a standalone adventure (outside of The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy). Here's hoping Dr. Strange is more like those two outings and
