With the Marvel Phase 2 box set Marvel is providing more details on Doctor Strange. Included is some official concept art of Benedict Cumberbatch as the Sorcerer Supreme.
On top of the art was a short video including thoughts from Scott Derrickson and Kevin Feige.
There have been a few photo releases from the set of Doctor Strange.
There is also a short video taken from the set of Cumberbatch walking with a book through a Buddhist temple in Nepal. He encounters a hooded figure. My assumption is this is when he meets the Ancient One.
EW has also released photos with some interesting interviews. Included in the interviews is Cumberbatch and Kevin Feige discussing the powers of Doctor Strange. It sounds like his powers will be very similar to his depictions in the comics.
In the photo you can see that Strange is wearing the Eye of Agamotto and the Cloak of Levitation.
Benedict revealed that 'there's all sorts of craziness. Falling, flying, jumping, fighting, punching, getting punched. It's really rough-and-tumble.'
Kevin Feige, the President of Marvel Studios, explained to EW: 'He has a Cloak of Levitation that allows him to fly. The Eye of Agamotto can manipulate probabilities, which is another way of saying "screw around with time."'
Adding: 'He can create mandalas of light as shields and whips. He can create portals to go to other places around the world.'
Benedict Cumberbatch set photos:
Benedict Cumberbatch was seen on set as Doctor Strange. He is bearded and ragged. This is obviously from the point in the film where he is searching for a cure for his hands. Some people online have compared his look to Christian Bale's Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins and said it is a copy. The looks are similar because the situations are similar but I don't think its a copy. They are both just bearded western dudes wandering Asia. By that standard Batman Begins is a copy of Brad Pitt in 7 Years in Tibet.

Judge for yourself though here is walking through an Asian/middle eastern market place.
I think Cumberbatch looks great and this absolutely perfect casting.
