Details about Marvel’s Doctor Strange have been few and far between ever since the studio announced a big screen version of the Sorcerer Supreme. However, with a stellar cast that includes Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Chiwetel Ejifor and Tilda Swinton and a story that will open up the Marvel Cinematic Universe to different dimensions, anticipation for the film has been steadily growing.
Today, all of that excitement should be nudged just a bit further.
Cumberbatch was spotted in Nepal shooting scenes for Doctor Strange. Twitter user and new personal hero Prayush Khadka snapped this picture of the scruffy looking “Sherlock” star.

Based on Cumberbatch’s look and location, we’d guess he’s shooting scenes that takes place before he receives his special abilities.
In the comics, Stephen Strange was the world’s most talented surgeon before a car accident robs him of his ability. In an attempt to regain his former stature, he scours the globe for a cure but stumbles upon something far more magical.
That magic may be found in the Nepal setting where Strange could discover the Ancient One (Swinton) who teaches him about the mystical arts.
Doctor Strange is scheduled to be released on November 4, 2016.
