When the first video from the Nepal set of director Scott Derrickson‘s Doctor Strange hit the Internet a couple of days ago, there was a mysterious hooded figure that seemed to be following Benedict Cumberbatch. Now we can safely say that the hooded figure was Chiwetel Ejiofor, who is playing Baron Mordo, another of the Ancient One’s Apprentices. There are some great shots of his costume, which is very cool and quite in line color-wise with the comic book version.
Here’s the tweets from UCMCuriosidades:

*Notice that Cumberbatch’s hand is wrapped in what looks like old, dirty bandages. This must be before he has met the Ancient One played by Tilda Swinton. Baron Mordo at this point could be considered friendly to Doctor Strange, at least before Strange surpasses him as the number one pupil of the Ancient One.
Here’s some more photos from the set:

I am really excited to see this movie. Doctor Strange has been one of my favorite Marvel characters since I picked up that first Strange Tales comic book. I loved the tow for one comics like Strange Tales that offered the adventures of super spy Nick Fury and the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and then the mystical antics of the world’s Sorcerer Supreme Doctor Strange.
