Marvel Comics’ “Supreme Sorcerer”, Doctor Strange, will be bursting onto the screens a year from this month. With that said, production on the film has begun in Nepal with an on-set photo from Prayush Khadka on Twitter.

Benedict Cumberbatch plays Stephen Strange, a former New York surgeon who is endowed with superhuman powers after an accident renders his hands useless. Under training from the mystical Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), Strange uses his powers for good and faces off against a former protege of the Ancient One who has turned evil, Baron Mordo (Chiwetel Ejiofor).

Scott Derrickson (Sinister) is directing from a script by Jon Spaihts.

The character of Dr. Strange was created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, the duo behind Spider-Man. The character made his first appearance in issue 110 of Strange Tales for Marvel Comics back in July of 1963. The character had a TV-movie made in 1978 with Peter Hooten in the role of Dr. Strange as a psychiatry resident and not the surgeon he was originally set to be. In 2007, Marvel did an animated film revolving around the character.

The big-screen adaptation of Doctor Strange is due for release on November 4, 2016 from Marvel Studios.
