Benedict Cumberbatch poses in costume in this early sneak peek of the title character in his upcoming Marvel movie Doctor Strange.
The 39-year-old actor is featured on the cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly double issue giving fans a first look at new movies to come.
Benedict‘s photo shoot for this cover pic was one of his first times getting into costume as the character.
“I’m still in the infancy of learning all that,” Benedict said. “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.”
