Benedict Cumberbatch looks Marvel-ous as Doctor Stephen Strange on the cover of Entertainment Weekly's "First Look" issue

The 39-year-old actor is the star of Marvel's magical superhero movie, "Doctor Strange," which will hit theaters November 4, 2016. Though the movie hasn't even finished shooting yet, Cumberbatch spoke with EW about the upcoming film. 

"There’s going to be crazy s**t going on," said Cumberbatch of the movie, which will star Tilda Swinton as a mystic called Ancient One, Rachel McAdams as a fellow surgeon, Chiwetel Ejiofor as an associate to the Ancient One and Mads Mikkelsen as a villain

Cumberbatch admitted to EW at the time of the cover shoot that he still hadn't mastered all of Doctor Strange's moves yet. 

"I’m still in the infancy of learning all that," said the actor, adding, "It was like, okay, I’ve got to keep throwing these poses, these spells, these rune-casting things, everything he does physically." 

Earlier this year, fans were able to snap a few shots of Cumberbatch and the Marvel movie crew filming in Nepal:
