Update: Benedict Cumberbatch in Nepal reveals 1st on-set Doctor Strange pic

11.05.2015

UPDATE: A new, close up and cleaner image of Cumberbatch on set has surfaced. See below! via The Kathmandu Post.

Filming is currently underway for Marvel's DOCTOR STRANGE, and while the bulk of it will be shot at Pinewood-Shepperton Studios, there is some on-location shooting going on in Nepal. Thanks to Twitter user Prayush Khadka, we now have our first look at Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme . . . albeit pre-Supreme-ness.

As we've heard before, Cumberbatch will definitely be rocking the traditional look when it comes to Strange, albeit with some modern-sensibilities mixed in for good measure. I know origin stories can sometimes feel like a chore when it comes to these flicks, but I think DOCTOR STRANGE goes to some really unique places that audiences will be willing to witness I mean, c'mon...it's Cumberbatch!

DOCTOR STRANGE will open on November 4, 2016.

Personally, I'd be happy for them to just copy the animated movie...especially how they did his backstory with the sister and why he became such a hardened, arrogant so and so . Never read the comics so can't say if that's how it was there but would a Disney Marvel film show how dark/depressing it gets for him if they go down the road of him losing his ability to be a surgeon?

Very excited about this project

Dr. Strange has quickly become one of my favorite Marvel superheros simply after reading a few of his comics. It's definitely a different direction for Marvel which gets me excited, and this is also the best cast of any Marvel film to date.

I meant him in his official Doctor Strange costume. That looks like his pre-Doctor Strange phase.

Cumberbitch is going to rock this shit. I can't wait for this one, and would love to see Dr. Strange mix it up with Cap & Iron Man at some point.

Out of all of the new comic book films and characters to be debuting in Phase Three, I'm looking toward to Doctor Strange the most. It's easily one of my favorite assembled casts for any Marvel film up to date and I'm just really excited to see how Strange is going to fit into the whole MCU and what kind of impact his magic/supernatural element will have

Quite excited this has finally gotten underway after all the actors were in contention for it. I don't know anything about Doctor Strange, so I'm excited to see what his character is all about.

Origin stories only suck when you've seen it 10 times over. I'm looking at you Spiderman and FF4. Doctor Strange is not someone most people outside of comics know so an origin is needed for him. not to mention it will be a very interesting and exotic origin.
