Filming has only just begun in Nepal on Marvel’s upcoming
Doctor Strange, and already a plethora of fan taken set photos have appeared online.

Earlier this week, a far back shot of Benedict Cumberbatch’s titular character found its way onto Twitter, but now some high-quality close-ups have emerged, as well as some video footage.

The images, below, show a dishevelled and bearded Cumberbatch wearing relatively normal clothes for the sorcerer supreme.

They also give us a first look at Chiwetel Ejiofor’s villain Baron Mordo alongside Strange.

In the comic books, Dr. Stephen Strange is a brilliant neurosurgeon who loses the use of his hands after a car accident, effectively ending his career.

After traveling the world to find a cure, he meets the Ancient One - who will be played by Tilda Swinton - in the Himalayas and soon becomes his apprentice.

From there on he masters magic and defends the earth from numerous villains.

Rachel McAdams has reportedly joined the cast as Night Nurse, while Mads Mikkelson has joined in an undisclosed role.

Doctor Strange will reach Cinemas 4 November 2016.
