Production on Marvel’s Doctor Strange film is finally underway ahead of its release a year from now and today we got out first look at Benedict Cumberbatch on set in Nepal. We see Cumberbatch looking a bit haggard and little strange (sorry, I had to).
Seeing as the film is going to be a Doctor Strange origin story, one could assume that these set photos depict Stephen Strange searching for The Ancient One, as evidenced by his untidy appearance and bandage-wrapped hands. In the comics, Strange ventures across the globe to look for The Ancient One to heal his hands after Strange suffers nerve damage to his hands in a car accident.
These images come courtesy of a variety of Twitter accounts.
