“Doctor Strange” is currently in production. Marvel has been very secretive about it. However, fans were still able to sneak in and take photos of the set.
According to Inquisitr, the movie about the Sorcerer Supreme is currently being shot on-location in London. The shoot gave pedestrians the perfect chance to see Benedict Cumberbatch in action. London-based fans were not selfish with these photos, though. They all posted them on Twitter and Instagram.

The photos show Cumberbatch as he rushes to his assistant Wong’s aid. Another actor is with him in the shot. According to Inquisitr, this is speculated to be Chiwetel Ejiofor playing Baron Mordo. Mordo is seen showing concern for Strange’s assistant. However, Inquisitr points out, this does not make sense since Mordo and Strange are arch-enemies in the comics. Did the production team just reveal a major spoiler?
Meanwhile, Movie News Guide speculates that Rachel McAdams will play the Night Nurse. This role will help bring TV series “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” “Luke Cage” and “Iron Fist” to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. McAdams was earlier confirmed as a cast member. But her exact role was not announced.
According to Movie News Guide, “Thor: Ragnarok” might also set the stage for “Strange.” The site suggests watching for Easter eggs in the third Thor movie that will hint of the Doctor’s presence.
Coming Soon stated in a report that Marvel’s upcoming film will be mostly shot at Pinewood Shepperton Studios. However, they apparently needed on-location footage. Hence, fans were treated to the sight of Cumberbatch in full costume in London.
The movie will also star Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One. Wong, the Doctor’s “humble servant,” will be played by Benedict Wong. Michael Stuhlbarg, Scott Adkins, Amy Landecker, and Mads Mikkelsen have also been cast. Their exact roles have yet to be revealed.
“Doctor Strange” is set to hit theaters on November 4.
