Even the Master of the Mystic Arts likes a good comic book.

Marvel’s Doctor Strange hit New York this weekend, and star Benedict Cumberbatch took some time in between takes to visit a local comic book shop dressed as Doctor Strange himself.

“So, the Doctor just came in for a quick visit,” JHU Comic Books posted on its social media accounts, alongside a photo of Cumberbatch and the store’s manager.

 

Marvel Entertainment got in on the fun as well, posting a picture of Cumberbatch holding a Doctor Strange comic book.

Director Scott Derrickson also posted an image from the shop. “That’s a wrap,” he wrote in the caption.

Cumberbatch and costars Chiwetel Ejiofor and Mads Mikkelsen were photographed on the streets of New York throughout Saturday and Sunday. Doctor Strange arrives in theaters on Nov. 4.
