‘Doctor Strange’ Set Photos Show Benedict Cumberbatch and Chiwetel Ejiofor in Action
We’ve already gotten an official look at Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sorcerer Supreme, but some new photos from the set of Doctor Strange give us another look at the actor and his co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor (along with a few mysterious cohorts). The stars of Marvel’s mystical superhero film spring into action — quite literally — in the latest images from the set, taking the action from London to the streets of New York.
The photos and videos have been popping up all over Twitter today, with Cumberbatch, Ejiofor and a few colorfully-dressed co-stars leaping down the street as they film a scene from Doctor Strange:
Cumberbatch plays Stephen Strange, a surgeon gifted with extraordinary powers following a harrowing accident. Ejiofor co-stars as Baron Mordo, a fellow student of The Ancient One, played by Tilda Swinton. The film also stars Michael Stuhlbarg as rival surgeon Nicodemus West, Benedict Wong as Strange’s assistant Wong, and Rachel McAdams, Transparent’s Amy Landecker and Scott Adkins in mystery roles — though it’s rumored that McAdams is playing Night Nurse or some variation on that character.
Mads Mikkelsen will play the villain in Doctor Strange, which is being helmed by Sinister director Scott Derrickson, and hits theaters on November 4.
