He is here! The much awaited first look of Benedict Cumberbatch as Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme aka Doctor Strange has leaked online. The “Doctor Strange” star who is shooting for the movie in Nepal looked absolutely spot on and there’s really no word to describe how amazing and charming he looked even when the part he is currently shooting for shows him as someone who is penniless.
According to Daily Mail, “Doctor Strange” will reveal the origin story of Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme and how an arrogant neurosurgeon called Stephen Strange found his way to the Ancient One and in turn became the sorcerer that he is known as today. Benedict undoubtedly looked every part of it as he was spotted in Nepal shooting for the movie. Going by Benedict’s looks, he sported a heavy beard and long locks, which means he is currently playing the penniless Stephen Strange travelling to meet the Ancient One. I believe the scene that he is shooting for currently will be the one where he does meet the Ancient One but gets rejected at first. However after he saves the Ancient One from Baron Mordo, the ageing Wizard teaches him everything that exists in Wizardry.
After the initial shoot in Nepal, “Doctor Strange” will be shooting at the Pinewood Studios in London where Benedict will be joined by Rachel McAdams, Mads Mikkelsen and Chiwetel Ejiofor. Cinema Blend noted that Benedict’s bearded look is very similar to that of Christian Bale in “Batman Begins” when Bruce Wayne too was on a journey of teaching himself tricks of the trade.
In the origin story Dr. Stephen Strange is a renowned neurosurgeon who because of an accident loses his ability to perform surgeries on patients and faces a problem of trembling hands. Because of his trembling hands, he is deemed unfit to perform surgeries, which ultimately lands him out of a job. Blowing up every single penny he saves from his career as a Neurosurgeon, Stephen Strange tries every cure so that he can treat his problems. Eventually landing penniless, Stephen starts to conduct illegal surgeries for money. Ultimately he travels to the Himalayas when he is told about a cure. “Doctor Strange” will release on November 4th next year.
