First Official Look At Benedict Cumberbatch As Doctor Strange

Finally… here’s our first look at Benedict Cumberbatch in costume as Doctor Strange, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly. The covershoot was apparently one of the first time sCumberbatch had worn the costume. “I’m still in the infancy of learning all that,” he says. “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.”

It’s great to know he’s aware that he’ll have to find some system to his gestures, otherwise fans’ll be going, “The last time you did that spell you had that finger like this, not that.” What a pro!


Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave) as Baron Mordo, Tilda Swinton (Only Lovers Left Alive) as The Ancient One and Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Scott Adkins, Amy Landecker and Mads Mikkelsen (Hannibal).

Doctor Strange is set to be released in the UK on 28 October.
