Whether or not you’re a fan, you have to respect what the Marvel Studios machine has accomplished over the years. Don’t forget, there was once a time when people were saying things like, “A movie about Thor? That’ll never work!” Now, just a few short years later, films like Guardians of the Galaxy and Ant-Man are pulling in millions worldwide. It’s seems like fans no longer wonder whether or not a Marvel Studios film will be good, just where it will fall on the scale between good and GREATEST THING OF ALL TIME EVER.

Phase 3 of Marvel’s plan to make every fanboy’s wildest dreams comes true will begin next summer with Captain America: Civil War. After that, Benedict Cumberbatch will don the big fancy cape of the Sorcerer Supreme in Doctor StrangeCivil War is basically already a bona fide hit, while Strange is the latest of the “Hmmm…hope this works”-type that Marvel’s been churning out for years. But with Cumberbatch onboard, joined by Tilda Swinton, Chiwetel Ejiafor, Rachel McAdams, and Mads Mikkelsen, it’s pretty clear that this film will boast one of the most impressive casts Marvel’s ever put together. A few days ago, we got our first look at Cumberbatch as the good doctor. Yes, we’ve begun the always-thrilling “leaked photos from the set” phase of hype. And guess what? Today we’ve got a few more, courtesy of Filming in Nepal continues, and Cumberbatch’s beard is as impressive as ever. Check it out!


See? That’s some good beard right there.

Perhaps more notable is this pic, which shows Cumberbatch walking with Ejiafor, who plays Baron Mordo in the film:


Just two pals out for a stroll.

Would you like two more pics of Cumberbatch on set? Of course you would!



We’re still pretty sure all these photos come from a point in the film where Doctor Strange is searching for The Ancient One, played by Swinton. Mordo’s appearance here pretty much confirms that, though I won’t spoil any of the reasons why. We’re just under a year away from the film’s release, so I imagine we’ll see plenty of more set photos before all’s said and done.

Doctor Strange will open on November 4, 2016.
