One can only imagine Sheldon’s reaction had Benedict Cumberbatch, as Doctor Strange, entered Stuart’s Comic Center of Pasadena on Big Bang Theory. While, most likely, not outwardly showing his excitement like he would have done had Professor Proton entered the store, I’m guessing that it could very well have been the first known case on record of spontaneous human combustion in some time.
For those that weren’t aware or don’t grasp the magnitude of this, just a day after he was seen filming in New York City for the upcoming supernatural/superhero movie Doctor Strange, Benedict Cumberbatch wrapped on the upcoming Marvel epic, but not before he took the chance to make some comic book fans’ day.
Dressed in full Doctor Strange regalia, Cumberbatch hit up JHU Comic Books on E. 32nd Street with his director Scott Derrickson, posed with a few issues of the Doc’s adventures and generally proving that the whole concept of spending endless hours hanging out in your local comic book store are not a waste of time and much more relevant and inviting in the future.
Doctor Strange, which also stars Tilda Swinton as The Ancient One, Chiwetel Ejiofor as Baron Mordo, Rachel McAdams as Christine Palmer, a.k.a. Night Nurse, Benedict Wong as Wong, Doctor Strange’s servant, and Mads Mikkelsen in an unspecified villain role, is due to arrive in UK cinemas on 4th November.
