Well, that didn’t take long. Principle photography has just started for Marvel‘s upcoming Doctor Strange and already we’ve got an on set picture of (REDACTED) Benedict Cumberbatch. Director Scott Derrickson is wasting no time getting right to it in Nepal where this picture originates. Prayush Khadka snapped and posted the shot. We’re not sure if Khadka is just a passerby or works on, or around the set where filming is taking place. Check out the picture below.

Now you can see why we slipped in that *REDACTED above. Just look at that hairy face. That looks like director Scott Derrickson with Cumberbatch, pointing out something and perhaps giving some direction in the scene they are shooting.
I imagine that Strange, the injured surgeon, is in Nepal looking for a cure to fix his hands, that is if Derrickson and Marvel are keeping to the origin story. Perhaps this is where Strange finds out about and starts his path to find The Ancient One played by Tilda Swinton?
What do you think of Cumberbatch’s beard? How quickly do you think it will cut into the classic Doctor Strange goatee?
