A new official pic of Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme in Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange has emerged. The new image was released through photographer Michael Muller’s site and shows Stephen Strange about to cast one of his many spells by using the surrounding mystical energy of the universe.

This great shot of the actor arrives hot-on-the-heels of that huge batch of behind-the-scenes pics taken on the New York set of director Scott Derrickson’s comic book movie this past weekend. 

Cumberbatch (who just began filming the fourth season of Sherlock), Chiwetel Ejiofor (Baron Mordo) and Mads Mikkelsen (in the role of a mysterious villain) were all spotted filming a scene on the streets of the Big Apple. Click on the pic below, and feast your eyes on the incredible details of the costume:


Doctor Strange follows the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.

Doctor Strange will arrive in movie theaters on Nov. 4.
