Though we've seen what is claimed to be star Benedict Cumberbatch on the set of Doctor Strange, Marvel decided today to officially declare the start of production on the film. What other things are you going to delay Marvel?! (shakes fist)
We'll skip posting the PR text here, you can check the source article for that, but we will tell you what they've confirmed about the film. As noted previously, Benedict Cumberbatch will star in the film and will be joined by Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Michael Stuhlbarg, Mads Mikkelsen, and Tilda Swinton. Strange-ly none of the roles are confirmed in the press release, even though we know some have been confirmed.
The film will be directed by Scott Derrickson. Filming locations for the movie have also been confirmed: London, New York, Hong Kong, and Kathmandu, Nepal. Doctor Strange will ride the Winds of Watoomb into theaters November 4, 2016.

Now Marvel can finally start showing off more from the movie… or clam up even more now that they have stuff to show…
