Benedict Cumberbatch gave a whole new meaning to interactive comic books on Sunday, as he took time out from filming the new Marvel movie Doctor Strange to surprise fans at a Manhattan comic book store. Cumberbatch, dressed in all of his glorious superhero garb, was spotted at JHU Comics, where he greeted fans and posed for photos.
Disappointingly, rather than teleporting in like a true method actor, Cumberbatch was captured on CCTV WALKING INTO THE STORE. That said, his entrance wasn’t exactly unextraordinary. Like a modern-day Pied Piper, he came in tailed by half a dozen smartphone-wielding stalkers. Far scarier than a bunch of hypnotised kids.
With the movie due out in November, filming is well underway in New York. Fans were also able to catch a glimpse of Cumberbatch and co-star Chiwetel Ejiofor in action over the weekend, but judging by the clip above, a little more practice in the mystic arts is required. [Buzzfeed]
