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:

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.
