With Captain America: Civil War quickly approaching, it is easy to forget that another exciting Marvel property will soon be reaching cinemas: Doctor Strange.

Late last year, thanks to an Entertainment Weekly cover, we got our first look at Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme.

Now, thanks to some leaked set photos, we can see the actor - dressed in his red robes - in action on the streets of London. In the same video, you can also see Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, watch below.

There’s also a leaked shot of Cumberbatch with what looks like a bloody scratch going down he side of his face. 

The Marvel movie’s impressive cast also includes Tilda Swinton, Rachel McAdams and Mads Mikkelsen, with Sinister’s Scott Derrickson directing.

Previously, the Sherlock actor promised some psychedelic visual effects in the movie, adding: “There’s going to be crazy sh*t going on.”

In other Marvel Cinematic Universe news, Falcon star Anthony Mackie hinted that Mark Rufallo (i.e. The Hulk) will be appearing in the third Captain America film. Production has also officially started on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.
