He was first spotted around the famous Pashupatinath Temple and then on the busy streets of New Road. God, why didn’t I happen to be in either one of those places today!!!
According to ComicBook.com, Cumberbatch is in Nepal filming scenes for the star’s upcoming Marvel superhero movie Doctor Strange. Considering his appearance and the setting, the crew is said to be filming the good doctor’s origin, where he travels in search of a cure for his broken hands and instead finds the Ancient One (Tilda Swinton), who teaches him the mystical arts.
It is still unsure as to how long the crew will be here for. But here’s me hopelessly wishing to stumble on him while he’s still around.
