The Doctor is in! Yes, it’s the first-ever pic of Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme in Doctor Strange, as portrayed by Benedict Cumberbatch, in today’s Movie Morsels. Plus, the latest clip from The Good Dinosaur, the final Alice Through the Looking Glass tease, a look at Jean-Claude Van Damme’s latest, and more!
By the hoary hosts of Hoggoth and the all-seeing eye of Agamotto! We’ve got our very first look at Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role of Marvel’s Doctor Strange today, thanks to one eagle-eyed shutterbug in Nepal, who nabbed the spy pic and posted it on Facebook. Judging by Benny’s appearance and wardrobe, this looks to be towards the beginning of the film, where a broken, once-proud surgeon named Stephen Strange is looking for meaning in his life…
Check out the first set photo of Cumberbatch as ‘Doctor Strange’:
