"Doctor Strange" is currently filming in London, and new set images have been flooding into Twitter. Of particular note is one video over 18-minutes long that shows stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Chiwetel Ejiofor (Baron Mordo) filming a scene on a makeshift New York City street.

In the video, the pair rush towards a man clothed in what look to be the yellow habits of a monk (perhaps this is Benedict Wong's Wong?), who appears to have fallen through a window. Cumberbatch is in full Doctor Strange garb, including his flowing red cape, while Ejiofor wears a green tunic with what appears to be a sword strapped to his back. The clip shows the crew prepping the scene, rehearsing the scene, and finally filming it a few times. You even see director Scott Derrickson giving his stars some direction.


Twitter user Anything Cumberbatch has been collecting stills and videos from the shoot, and you can find a few of them below, including a clear one of Cumberbatch himself with blood dripping down the side of his face.
