First video of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange lands online

New, 6 comments

Benedict Cumberbatch looks a little confused in this new Doctor Strange set video.

Cumberbatch doesn't appear until halfway through the video, which was shot in Nepal, but fans interested in seeing how the actor will play the surgeon turned sorcerer will be able to see him act out a specific scene over and over again.

Like in previous photos that appeared on Twitter, Cumberbatch — who's walking through the middle of the crowd, sporting a long trench coat and messy beard — looks haggard, but that's completely inline with his character.

Although Cumberbatch isn't in the first part of the video, there are a few shots of background characters that fans may find interesting.

It's unclear whether Marvel and Disney will rush to take the videos down, but at the time of this posting, the video was available to watch.

Doctor Strange is part of Marvel's third cinematic phase. The movie stars the aformentioned Cumberbatch alongside Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Tilda Swinton and Mads Mikkelsen.

It's scheduled to hit theaters on Nov. 4, 2016.
