Guess what? "Doctor Strange" will be released exactly one year from today -- on November 4, 2016. So it's fitting that the first image from the movie is being leaked today. It's not an official shot, it's just a glimpse of Benedict Cumberbatch (with a cumber-beard?) on set, as shared by a witness:


Marvel super-sleuths, does this image give you any clues? ComicBook.com surmised, "Considering Cumberbatch's appearance and the setting, we're guessing the crew is currently filming the good doctor's origin, where he travels in search of a cure for his broken hands and instead finds the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), who teaches him the mystical arts." It's helpful to run into people like that.

Marvel's "Doctor Strange" -- directed by Scott Derrickson, and also starring Rachel McAdams and Chiwetel Ejiofor -- follows the story of neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange, who gets in a terrible car accident (bad) then discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions (good!). "Stephen Strange's story requires an actor capable of great depth and sincerity," producer Kevin Feige said when Marvel released the Cumberbatch casting news. "In 2016, Benedict will show audiences what makes Doctor Strange such a unique and compelling character."

It's early days yet, but we're excited for more set teases, plus official photos and at least one chills-inducing trailer. And we still hope these 7 things happen in the movie.
