First Set Photo: “Marvel’s Doctor Strange”

Filming has gotten underway in Nepal on Marvel’s upcoming “Doctor Strange” movie and the first photo of a rather burned out looking Benedict Cumberbatch as the titular character has arrived.

The filming looks to be from early in the movie where the surgeon Dr. Stephen Strange seeks mystical help to overcome his affliction. His encounter with The Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) leads to him becoming the Sorcerer Supreme.

Scott Derrickson helms the project from a script by Jon Spaihts, while the likes of Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Michael Stuhlbarg and potentially Mads Mikkelsen also star. The film is targeting a November 4th 2016 release.
