With the Marvel universe looking set to take over the world of cinema once again, we got our first exclusive look at the comic words favourite sorcerer.
In an exclusive photo shoot with Entertainment Weekly , Dr Stephan Strange is brought to life by Benedict Cumberbatch.
Filming for the origin story of Marvel’s magician only begun in November, with Cumberbatch admitting that he has spent little time in costume during filming so far, so used the shoot with Entertainment Weekly to practise some of Strange’s signature moves.
During the shoot the English actor said: ‘These gestures are ways of creating the magic.
‘It’s a beautiful thing, it’s balletic, it’s very dynamic.’
Strange’s story follows the talented, but cocky surgeon, Stephan Strange.
Everything is peachy until the doctor is in a car accident shattering all the bones in his hands.
Feeling down on his luck Strange doesn’t know where to turn, until a sorcerer sees something in the broken doctor and takes him under his wing, teaching him how to use magic to fend of evil.
The film, directed by Scott Derrickson, is set to for release for October 28, where Cumberbatch will star along side Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton.
