This week, Entertainment Weekly revealed the first photo of Cumberbatch in his Doctor Stephen Strange costume.
He said he knows that "there's going to be crazy s*** going on" in the final cut of the film.
“I’m thinking, there’s going to be a huge amount of speculation and intrigue over the positioning of that finger as opposed to it being there, or there. And I’m still working on that," Cumberbatch said. "We haven’t played any of those scenes yet. I felt really self-conscious. But, then, by the end, it was great. It’s like anything, you just have to experiment.”
