Following yesterday’s news that Doctor Strange had begun production in Nepal, which included our first set photo, even more photos have been posted online. While the original sources for these are unknown, they were compiled together on Imgur.
Phase 2 ended over the summer after Ant-Man got it’s theatrical release. Now with the first Phase 3 movie, Captain America: Civil War, working hard in post-production, the focus of Marvel Studios has shifted to the next project.
Today marks the beginning of production for Doctor Strange (which is exactly a year before it’s release), as we have gotten our first set photo featuring the lead man himself in Nepal.

Even though the photo is from Nepal, the majority of the filming will take place at Pinewood Studios in London. This will mark the first project for director Scott Derrickson under Marvel, and he’s got one of the best casts to date.
Doctor Strange stars Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange/Doctor Strange, Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, and Rachel McAdams.
Doctor Strange is scheduled to hit theaters November 4, 2016.
