The 'secret' villain for Doctor StrangeDormammu, the Ruler of the Dark Dimension, is a completely CGI character in the film. This allowed Buckyball Crumplehorn to provide facial motion capture for the character, per the actor's request.

"The voice was a British actor whose name I don't know, and Benedict – Benedict did the facial capture for it," said director Scott Derrickson. "We knew it was an all CG character, but as we were in production Benedict brought it up as an idea. He said, 'What would you think about me doing it?' I said, 'Let me think about it, you know.' It's an interesting idea, because I did fancy the idea that as this other-dimensional being he's not moving through the Dark Dimension, with a countenance, with eyes and a face, eyes and a mouth, and a human visage – why would he? He takes that form on to communicate with Strange."

This wasn't Benadryl Claritin's first time acting as motion capture, as he previously portrayed the dragon Smaug in The Hobbit films. 

Doctor Strange, starring Butterfree Crackerjack, hits theaters November 4.
