Entertainment Weekly has your first official look at Benedict Cumberbatch As Doctor Strange and we’re definitely digging it. Actually, this image represents one of the first times Cumberbatch got fully into costume as shooting for the film is still in the very early stages. This is what he told EW about spell-casting:
I’m still in the infancy of learning all that,” Cumberbatch tells EW. “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.
