Entertainment Weekly has released the first photo of Benedict Cumberbatch as the title character from Marvel’s “Doctor Strange”.
The ‘Sorcerer Supreme’ features on the front cover and the outlet has also released several pieces of concept art for the upcoming Scott Derrickson film.
The movie is currently filming, the actor spoke with the trade about the training involved for his role:
“I’m still in the infancy of learning all that. 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.”
The actor also commented about the action in the film:
“There’s all sorts of craziness [in Doctor Strange]. Falling, flying, jumping, fighting, punching, getting punched. It’s really rough and tumble. These gestures are ways of creating the magic. It’s a beautiful thing, it’s balletic, it’s very dynamic. And once the boys in the backroom get to work on it, there’s going to be crazy s–t going on.”
Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejiofor, and Mads Mikkelsen also star in the film. “Doctor Strange hits cinemas on November 4th next year. Check out the images below.
